There is just something magical about peaches. When they’re in season, they are truly nature’s candy! They go great in a number of dishes, but my absolute favorite is this peach berry cobbler I created a few years ago. Why it has taken so long to share the recipe with you on this blog is beyond me. Maybe it has something to do with a concern that the grocery stores with have trouble stocking peaches if I share too widely… Or maybe it’s because once I’ve made this, there’s little I’d rather do than just sit down to a warm bowl of it and enjoy some quiet time all to myself! Nonetheless, the time has come to share this cobbler-y goodness with the world.
One of my favorite breakfasts used to be my Homemade Guilt Free Waffles topped with peaches and berries. A while back I was entertaining for a group while on vacation and I didn’t have a waffle iron nor the time to make a bunch of waffles at the same time. Like so many great recipes, this was created out of necessity. I invented this option, an upside-down version of my waffles, baked into a warm cobbler. Since it’s free of high fat dairy, oil, sugar, and salt, it makes for a perfectly healthy breakfast. Yet it’s sweet enough to serve as a dessert with your favorite nice cream recipe or all by itself. Enjoy!
3 cups peaches, sliced
1 cup berries (fresh or frozen, any kind will work!)
1 cup applesauce
2 Tbsp flax seed (optional)
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup almond milk
2 cups oats
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all filling ingredients directly in a 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan. In a mixing bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Put the topping ingredients on top of the filling. (I told you it was easy!) Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until topping is starting to brown and fruit is bubbling around the edges.
