I hate peach skins. I hate touching them. I hate how fuzzy they are. I especially hate the way they feel in my mouth. I also hate to waste them, but I just cannot bring myself to eat them.
However you feel about peach skins, you should make this Vanilla Almond Peach Cobbler. Skins on, or off.
This cobbler is a perfect treat for summer. It’s my kinda dessert. Super delicious and you won’t feel like junk after eating it. It’s highlights include
- not full of sugar
- oil free
- protein from oats, almond flour and almond butter
I have been blessed this spring and summer to parter with Eckert’s Farm.
I have enjoyed the freshest strawberries, blackberries and now peaches. Once you have a taste of fruit straight from the dirt, you are forever ruined for anything less. There’s a reason for the seasonal and local food trends. A peach picked and eaten day or week of is far tastier than a peach that was on a truck, then a warehouse, then a shelf for who knows how long. So head to Eckert’s farm and pick your own fruit, or buy it freshly picked in their cute country store. Bring the kids and make a family day out of it. Show them where their food comes from. Peach season only extends until mid August, so don’t miss out !!
I hope you’ll give this recipe a try and that you enjoy it as much as I did.
Eat yourself healthy ,
- 4 peaches- cored, peeled and sliced

- In another bowl combine almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth

- I used 3 small cast iron skillets, feel free to use one larger skillet or glass baking dish as well
- Evenly add topping to cover peaches, press down lightly to ensure peaches are covered and topping is contained in each dish
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until top is golden brown *
I baked mine in small cast iron skillets so the cooking time was 25 minutes, it may be closer to 30 min if you are using one big skillet or baking dish
