Peach Cobbler

istockpeaches

I’m taking y’all back to the south with this one.  Good ‘ol peach cobbler but revised for a healthy plant based diet.  This baby is unbelievably superb without compromising nutrition!

I photographed this peach cobbler in my Peach Tea Tuesday post recently.  My plans were to remake and retake a fabulous photo of the cobbler by itself, but life happened, and I decided I needed to go ahead and post the recipe this week with it being a summer holiday and all!  So here it is.  🙂

Growing up in North Carolina, cobblers were a staple of the southern cuisine.  My mom and grandma made the best!  Of course, this one is completely different from the family recipe, because there’s no butter, sugar, or oil…but it’s still awesome!  Like, totally awesome, 100% scrumptiousness!

The only problem I have with peach cobbler is that I need to buy double the amount of peaches needed to make it.   While I’m slicing the peaches for the cobbler, I eat them simultaneously! Haha…ENJOY!!
