These Perfect Little Peach Cobblers have me standing with pride. I have awarded myself a Georgia peach! 😊 This is not because I snatched a spot with The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but because I am incredibly excited that I found a way to prepare the notorious peach cobbler without all the processed flour, sugar, and fat.
Growing up in Toronto, I didn’t experience eating peach cobbler until I moved to Georgia in my adult years. Peach cobbler is prominent in the South, and it didn’t take me long to become hooked on this delicious dessert. The only problem was that it is filled with sugar, processed flour, butter, and corn syrup.
Once I changed the way I ate to a healthy whole food plant-based diet, I still craved the flavor of peach cobbler. Lo and behold, the Perfect Little Peach Cobblers recipe was born! This recipe is made with simple whole food ingredients and can be whipped up in 20 minutes. With only 70 calories per cobbler, this cute little dessert will blow your mind because it has all the bells and whistles of flavor like the traditional peach cobbler, but without the stuff that has you mortgaging your health.
Picking the perfect peach
The key to this recipe is picking the perfect peach that will ripen to perfection. One tip is to let your nose do the picking. When selecting a peach, the sweeter the smell, the better the peach; stay away from the dull odorless peach to avoid a bad pick. If your peach is hard, it is not quite ready, your peach is ready when it is firm, but it gives way to a slight squeeze. Color is also essential; a dark yellow color signifies your peach is ready for the taking. Lastly, the bigger the peach, the better. Choose peaches that are medium to large over the tiny ones.
Once you get the right peaches, you are ready for this perfect peach cobbler. What is so remarkable about this recipe is that you can make a single serving to remedy that sweet tooth on the fly, or you can put it in a large pan and make several for your family picnic. Spoiler alert you will amaze your guest and family with this one!
Perfect Little Peach Cobblers has 5 key ingredients:
- Fresh peaches
- Rolled oats
- Date syrup
- Unsweetened, plain plant-based milk
To make the date syrup. . .
To make the date syrup, put 5 pitted dates and ½ cup of water into a small pot. Bring to a gentle boil for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, add a teaspoon of fresh lemon or lemon juice, cover and let sit for 30-60 minutes. Put dates and water into a blender (I used a Magic Bullet blender) and blend until smooth and creamy. You only need 3 tablespoons of date syrup for this recipe, so save the leftovers for next batch you're going to make.
If you really want to take it up a notch, these Perfect Little Peach Cobblers go great with a scoop or two of Guilt Free Banana Nice Cream.
