Leila’s Why is Davis so Hot Still Paleo Peach Cobbler

I went on an awesome but rather exhausting roadtrip to Portland this weekend and was lucky enough to be able to take today off work. I woke up from my nap this afternoon having had a dream about my mom making peach cobbler. It sounded really good, so I decided I would make some.  It wouldn’t really be a complete, relaxing day off for me if I didn’t bake something, so here it is: my several-weeks-into-fall-but-it-still-feels-like-summer-here peach cobbler.

Serves: However many persons want to chow down on this deliciousness.

Prep time: ~30 minutes

Bake time: ~20 minutes



3 cans of peaches in fruit juice, not syrup (you could use fresh fruit, of course, but peaches aren’t in season for me right now)

2 TBSP grassfed butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 TBSP maple syrup

pinch of salt


pumpkin spice to taste

roasted almonds


2 eggs

2 TBSP grassfed butter, softened

1 TBSP raw honey

1/2 cup coconut flour

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

pumpkin spice to taste

1/2 tsp vanilla

water (added in 1/2 tsps until desired consistency)


Open the three cans of peaches and drain two of them. Dump all of the peaches and the juice from one of the cans into a pot.

Add butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and pumpkin spice* to peaches and heat over medium low until the mixture begins to bubble. Turn burner off and set aside.

*I use pumpkin spice because I enjoy the mixture of spices in it and how it gives this dessert a fall-ish flavor, but experiment with what you like best.

Grease a pie or square baking dish and pour peach mixture in. Add nuts.

[I opted for whole roasted almonds, but that’s mostly because I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to chop them. That’s what teeth are for. The sesame seeds are in there because of a failed attempt to use a spring form pan for this recipe. My dad uses butter and sesame seeds to keep things from sticking, so I tried it, but the filling started leaking. Whoops.]

Add butter, honey, and eggs in a bowl and beat well.

Add vanilla and pumpkin spice and mix.


Add salt, coconut flour, and baking soda and mix together. A sticky yet slightly crumbly dough should form.


Add small amounts of water to get the dough to your desired consistency. I’ll have to play around with the recipe a bit because the dough I got today was too sticky to roll out but too thick and crumbly to pour on top, but it tastes delicious so I’m not complaining.

Get dough onto the top of the peaches however works for you, and then bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Enjoy!
