You read that correctly: Peaches and Crust! It isn’t quite a cobbler, it isn’t a pie…in all honesty, it’s not what I set out to do…but it turned out pretty damn good!
I’ve been searching for a good peach pie or cobbler and I have been disappointed recently. Even in the grocery stores, all the pies are full of sugar and a laundry list of crap ingredients. After searching through lots of recipes, I came up with this dessert.
I didn’t have enough ingredients to make a traditional pie so I just worked with what I had. I don’t even have an actual pie dish so I used my 4 cup Pyrex oven safe bowl. Sure, I could have purchased a pre made pie crust, but those are loaded with bad ingredients and would pretty much defeat the purpose of me making a healthier dessert. Lets get to it!
Things you will need…
3 Pitted dates (chopped)
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 tsp solid coconut oil
2 tsp maple syrup
Dash of cinnamon
2 Peaches (cored and sliced but not peeled, you can peel them if you’d like)
1 Tbsp Lime juice (you can use any citrus)
1 Tsp of solid coconut oil
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
Dash of Cinnamon
-Put all the crust ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mixture starts holding together. Stop and scrape down the sides at least once.
-Spread crust evenly on the bottom of your pie dish. Set aside and preheat your oven to 350° while you make the “filling”.
So upon serving this dessert, whether warm or chilled, the whole thing kind of fell apart…and that’s how this became “Peaches & Crust”. Perhaps if I had enough crust to come up the sides of the dish, it would have held together better. Either way, it was delicious!
I hope you peeps give this recipe a try. It was so good, it was all gone after dinner.
Stay awesome peeps,
P.S. I might have another blog in the works for this weekend since, technically, this is supposed to be last Sunday’s blog. Any requests? Another food blog? A hair blog? Let me know!
