Paleo Peach Cobbler Recipe – Sugar-Free and Gluten Free

I’m not really much of a cook, but lately I’ve been on a little splurge with trying a few new things. Last week it was Paleo pizza, this week it is Paleo peach cobbler. This is really a quick and easy dish with exquisite flavor and completely satisfies the desire for a real cobbler experience.

Paleo Peach Cobbler Recipe

The following recipe was inspired by a recipe I found for Paleo Apple Cobbler over at Fed and Fit, but I tweaked it a bit and switched out the apples for peaches. Thank you to Cassandra for the great idea and instructions for the topping.

Ingredients (Servings 4 or 6 Small)

  • 8 x 8 baking dish
  • 1 1/2 bags of sliced organic peaches. (I used Woodstock Organics frozen peaches and thawed them out of course.)
  • 1 tsp organic cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup organic almond meal (I used Blue Mountain Organics Raw Almond Meal which was wondefully rich in flavor and fresh like all their products.)
  • 3 TBSP of organic virgin coconut oil – softened a little.
  • Dash of stevia

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place the peaches in the baking dish and sprinkle with half the cinnamon and a dash of stevia.
  3. Mix the coconut oil and almond meal with a fork or pastry knife until you have a nice crumbly texture.
  4. Stir in the other half of cinnamon and a dash of stevia.
  5. Sprinkle the topping on top of the peaches.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Let cool before eating.

I ate some while it was still very warm, and although it was divine in flavor, it didn’t hold its shape too well. However, I put it in the fridge and ate the leftovers the next day and it held its shape very well and it was even more superb the second time around.

Enjoy!

This Paleo peach cobbler could be a delicious addition to your menu at Thanksgiving or any time of year, and you could use apples in place of the peaches just as well.

    Hi Cynthia, this looks really YUMMY, but I’m wondering if NATURAL HONEY could be used in place of stevia. I’m not a fan of stevia at all. I just don’t trust that it’s ALL NATURAL!! Thanks for any advice or help you can give about this.

    Sincerely, Linda

    Yes, you could use honey in place of the stevia. However, stevia is better for you.

    Stevia is completely natural, as long as you aren’t buying it from the regular grocery store, and it is the only sweetener that generally has no impact on insulin, neurotransmitters, the autonomic nervous system, dysbiosis, and blood sugar.

    Although honey is natural, it is still a sugar. Sugar in any form overstimulates neurotransmimtters in the brain, the autonomic nervous system, causes a rise in blood sugar which prompts an insulin response and feeds unfriendly organisms like Candida yeast. All of this contributes to symptoms and conditions like depression, anxiety, addiction, Candida overgrowth, dysbiosis, hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, adrenal disorders, food cravings and compulsive overeating, chemical sensitivities, cancer and other autonomic nervous system disorders and mental health conditions.

    At this blog we are focusing on conditions like depression, anxiety, addiction, Candida overgrowth, dysbiosis, hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, compulsive overeating, food cravings, type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, adrenal disorders, chemical sensitivities and other autonomic nervous system disorders and mental health conditions, so my recipes and discussions always focus on eating and living in a manner that will improve or prevent these conditions.

    Stevia is a better choice for that reason.

    However, a little honey every now and then is not going to be too problematic and it is certainly a better choice than any other form of sugar. So as long as you are not eating it on a frequent basis, then yes, it could be used in this recipe as a special treat. Unless you have severe Candida overgrowth or it is obvious to you that you feel worse after eating honey.

    If you are in good health and have none of these symptoms or conditions, then you can get away with eating more honey than those who do, but even still the human body is genetically wired to do best on very little sugar, including honey.

    Where you buy your stevia is very important. Truvia and other stevia you buy in the grocery store has been chemically altered, so it is not completely natural and should be avoided. You need to buy from a reputable source in the health food store.
    Best,
    Cynthia
