Peach-cobbler-2INGREDIENTS:

Fruit:
6-7 large, ripe peaches, pitted and sliced. Peeling is optional

Fruit sauce:

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 soft Medjool dates, pitted and quartered
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup rolled oats, ground into flour (in a blender)

Topping:

  • ½ cup nondairy milk
  • ½ large, ripe banana, sliced
  • 4 soft Medjool dates, pitted and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups rolled oats, ground into flour (in a blender)
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Fruit: Place peaches into a large bowl. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375. Grind oats into flour (for both sauce and topping) before blending the fruit sauce.

Fruit sauce: Blend the water dates, lemon juice, cinnamon, and oat flour in a blender until smooth (if your dates are not soft/room temperature, soak them in the 1 cup water for 15 to 30 minutes first). Pour this into the bowl of fruit and stir. Spoon into a 9×9-inch baking dish or a 9-inch pie pan and spread out evenly (no treatment is necessary for the pan).

Topping: Using your blender again, blend the nondairy milk, banana, dates, and vanilla together until smooth. Transfer this mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until the texture is like biscuit dough. Spread the topping over the fruit filling evenly, or drop by spoonfuls, leaving gaps of fruit between. Cook for 30-40 minutes, until topping is lightly browned. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Variation: For a Southwest flare, decrease topping oat flour to 1 cup and add ½ cup cornmeal and ½ cup pine nuts. Omit cinnamon and add

Note: Because there is no sugar in this recipe, in order to optimize sweetness, use very ripe peaches and bananas!
