Peach Almond Cobbler




If you are so lucky to have fresh peaches at your local market, here is a peach almond cobbler that I think you will LOVE! It is delectable and of course so much more nutritious than the typical cobbler recipe. I have added ground almonds not only to add nutritional value but also to make it almost “buttery” tasting. I am using a mixture of regular Melt Buttery Sticks (only 2 Tbsp for the whole cobbler!) and low fat kefir instead of saturated fat butter to keep the topping moist and absolutely perfect. I am also using whole wheat pastry flour (that’s soft wheat) and rolled oats to add fiber. I am purposely not adding any salt at all to this cobbler as is typically done because there is no need for it to accentuate the flavor: the sweet ripe peaches with the cinnamon and almond extract already do just that!

Cuisinicity Tip: you can also use fat free buttermilk instead of kefir but I prefer kefir in general because it is much lower in sodium, and although I use all of 1 Tbsp, who needs any extra superfluous sodium, right?!

Serves: 6-8

Ingredients:

PEACH FILLING
5 cups peeled and sliced fresh ripe peaches (about 10 medium peaches)
2 Tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp almond extract
1 Tbsp whole wheat pastry flour

COBBLER TOPPING
½ cup ground almond meal (or finely ground unsalted almonds*)
½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
½ cup rolled oats
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp (+ 1 tsp) Melt Buttery Sticks, room temperature
1 Tbsp lowfat kefir
*(you can also grind whole dry roasted unsalted almonds instead).

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375

  2. Spread 1 tsp Melt Buttery Sticks on a 9 inch pie dish.

  3. Mix all PEACH FILLING ingredients in a bowl (make sure to keep as much of the juice of the peaches as possible) and place in pie dish.

  4. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.

  5. Add Melt Buttery Sticks and kefir to the dry mixture and work with your fingers to make into a crumbly mixture

  6. Sprinkle evenly over filling

  7. Bake in oven for 15-18 minutes, until the top is golden and the juices are sizzling.
