Alabama Peach and Blackberry Cobbler with Almond Crust


I’m not typically a baking kind of girl. But since having a restricted diet, all baking has suddenly become enticing. Something about wanting what you can’t have? Here is a baked good that I CAN have. And it is amazing.

Ingredients: Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil (or butter or oil of choice)
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • cinnamon for dusting

Preparation: Crust

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a bowl. Combine wet and dry ingredients and form into a ball using a spatula. Lay down a piece of parchment paper and place your dough on top. Place another piece of parchment paper on top of dough and flatten in a disk shape with your hand. Using a rolling pin roll out dough until it is wide enough to drape over a 9-inch pie pan.

Once rolled out place in fridge for 30 minutes.

Ingredients: Filling

  • 5-7 peaches, peeled and sliced (I used whatever stone fruit we had on hand)
  • 1 pint of blackberries (I only had frozen blackberries, so I defrosted & used them)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped and pod discarded
  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey

Preparation: Filling

Toss all ingredients into a 9 inch pie pan until well incorporated. Remove pie crust from fridge and carefully drape over filling. This dough is delicate so if pieces fall off just stick them back on. Carefully tuck the edges in.

Dust cinnamon over the top and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Because almond flour is made of almonds the crust will turn golden brown quickly, this is normal and adds so much flavor so don’t think you are burning the crust.

After that place some foil over the top and allow to cook another 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes. When you cut into the cobbler it will be very juicy. Normal cobblers typically have flour mixed in the filling to absorb some of the juices but in our case we obviously leave this out. The juices add so much flavor and though this cobbler doesn’t produce “pretty” slices, the taste is delicious! So just scoop some up in a bowl and ENJOY!
