Peaches are my favorite fruit. Hands down. And not in a “I’m saying it’s my favorite because that’s what this post is about” way. Literally – favorite fruit. And over the years I’ve fostered this love every fall by buying boxes of peaches, freezing them, and using them all within a month on making peach cobbler.

With the food restrictions in our family now, my recipe is a bit different from what it used to be. But the heart of the dish is the same, and it’s such a comforting, delicious dessert you can make for so many people.

Of course it has almonds and tree nuts (coconut), but it’s peanut free, gluten free, grain free, dairy free, egg free, vegan, and fresh beyond fresh. Also, if you’re some kind of weirdy who doesn’t like peaches, you could make this using fresh apples (not frozen) and it’d turn out dynamite as well. But peaches take it for me.

    I just have to say, that comment on Twitter about the state of your collared shirt, I CAN’T!!! It bothered me SO MUCH.

    Keep cooking, Chris!!! Love what you do, especially working around dietary restrictions for those you love. Keep sending positive out into the web…

      Haha, it’s ok. I don’t think she meant it offensively and I didn’t take it that way. “I am what I am.” :)

      Thanks so much for following along and supporting!

    Husband and I liked it. It’s a Keeper. I like that I can use frozen peaches. My food processor is broken, used vitamix, My cast iron skillet doesn’t have a lid cooked uncovered 25 minutes . Made 1/2 the recipe. Did not have any cashews, increased the amount of almonds.

    served with no sugar vanilla ice cream

  5. Mama sarita says:

    I’ll eat anything with a strudel topping basically. But a cobbler usually has a biscuit dough like topping so just semantics. Trying soon.

  6. Allie says:

    Looks amazing! Any recommendations for almond flour replacement?
