Peach Berry Cobbler

Fresh peaches are in abundance right now all juicy sweet and dripping in goodness. When buying fresh fruit I sometimes forget that I am only feeding the two of us. It seems as though all my fruit gets ripe at once and suddenly I am faced with 6 ripe peaches and a basket of berries that need to be eaten immediately! All though peaches and berries are tempting  all on their own they are even more luscious when baked into a cobbler.

Peach Berry CobblerYou can use any combination of fresh fruit for a cobbler. This one consisted of 4 super ripe peaches and 1 1/2 cups blackberries. Strangely the blackberries look like raspberries after being baked. Most of the sweetness comes from the fruit so be sure and use fully ripe peaches and berries. Blueberries or raspberries would also be lovely. Since a baked dessert is a rare event around here we found it to be sweet enough for our taste buds but remember that we don’t have sugary treats very often. If you are used to indulging in full sugar sweets you might need a little more sweetener than the maple syrup called for in this recipe.

Peach Berry Cobbler

 As he tells the story, hubby Tom’s Grandma Fox used to make a delicious apple crisp but on the rare occasion that it came out more like a soft cobbler than a crisp she would call it “apple goodie”. My recipe is a cross between a cobbler and a crisp, since half the flour was replaced with old fashioned oats to give it more body. Grandma Fox would surely call it peach berry goodie! We called it delicious.

Peach Berry Cobbler

  • 4 ripe peaches, peeled and diced -discard pit
  • 1 1/2 cups berries – black, blue, raspberries or strawberries – diced
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats -uncooked
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup almond milk or milk of  your choice
  • 3 Tablespoons real maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a non stick 8 x 8 inch pan, a silicone baking pan or spray a regular pan with non stick spray. Put prepared fruit into baking dish and set aside.

In a medium size bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg – combine using a wire whisk.

In a measuring cup combine the vanilla extract, milk and real maple syrup, stirring to mix well. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and stir just until well combined, it will be thin, pour mixture over fruit.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 – 45 minutes or until batter is baked through.

Serving Suggestion we ate it plain but you could guild the lily by topping it with some Yonanas banana soft serve. Yum! Store any leftovers in the refrigerator as low sugar desserts like this will not remain fresh at room temperature.

The inspiration for this recipe came from The Engine 2 Diet cookbook  -  Blueberry Dumpster Fire Cobbler and my own Cranberry Apple Crisp.

I submitted my Quinoa Mango Salad recipe and guess what? Carrie decided to put it on her app! I already had the Vegan Delish App and find it so useful so I was quite honored that my recipe is now a part of it.

TGIF – I don’t know about you but I found this to be a long week! Every day was jammed pack with activity around here and I am looking forward to the weekend. The full days continue as today I have a hair cut – that always makes me feel fresh and perky.  Then I am meeting up with a friend for lunch.

Saturday hubby Tom and I will be hitting up the local REI garage sale looking for great deals. Last week we attended one in Sacramento and scored some bargains on outdoor adventure equipment.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Renee@Mykitchenadventures says:

    I would call this delicious too! I love fresh fruit desserts like this. How often do I make dessert…believe it or not, not that often…but too often for me! I should really never make them! haha I do have a terrible sweet tooth!

    How super cool your recipe was got incorporated into that app! Nice. I have a few recipe apps on my phone…Allrecipes (of course!) and Wholefoods are two I can think of that I have used.

    Got my hair cut and colored today too! lol Have a great weekend Tami! xxoo

    1. Tami says:

      Renee I think we are sisters! I too have a big sweet tooth and once in a while I have to satisfy it with a dessert albeit a healthier one but dessert none the less. I don’t have the Whole Foods app – will have to look into that.

  4. Lori says:

    Haha – I think I am the last person alive that doesn’t have smart phone! I can’t do apps.

    Congrats on your recipe being featured on the app, though!

    1. Tami says:

      I know plenty of people who don’t have smart phones Lori! I find mine to be so handy – it can do various things and I am still amazed by it!

    OK, this is one I am all over – this looks amazing!!!! Can I use frozen peaches – lazy me! ;) I loved this type of food as a kid – the full fat kinds! ;)

    So simple & healthy – thank you!!!!!

    1. Tami says:

      I think frozen peaches are just fine Jody! They are so much easier than fresh ones.:)

  6. Andrea@WellnessNotes says:

    The cobbler sounds delicious! I haven’t made a dessert in a very long time, but I have been eating more fruit (which I didn’t use to like much even a year ago).

    Congrats on being included on the app!

    I also got a haircut yesterday and changed things quite a bit.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Tami says:

      A hair cut makes you feel so fresh – I love it! I am so glad you discovered that you enjoy fruit – it’s so good for you. :)

  7. Cammy@TippyToeDiet says:

    I don’t use any purchased apps on my phone. The ones that came with it do what I need so far. :)

    I’m making peach cobbler for one tonight. It looks a lot like baked oatmeal with peaches in it. :)

    1. Tami says:

      Peach cobbler for one sounds good Cammy!

  8. Biz says:

    That’s so exciting to be on that app! Gah, I have way too many apps – my favorites are pinterest, intagram, vine, 8 tracks for music, kindle – the list goes on!

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Tami says:

      Hope you are having a great weekend too Biz! :)
