Let's Get Cooking!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE:
- Fruit! – I used seasonal and fresh peaches, blueberries, and raspberries. Any stone fruit or berry combo would work, frozen fruit will also work.
- Coconut Palm Sugar – You can use brown sugar as well.
- Arrowroot Starch – Also called arrowroot powder, if you don't have this ingredient in your healthy baking pantry I highly recommend purchasing it. Arrowroot helps improve the texture of gluten-free baked goods and is the perfect thickener for sauces, soups, and gravies.
- Almond Flour – Almond “meal” will work but almond flour works better. My preferred brand is Bob's Red Mill
- Butter – Unsalted grass-fed butter is my preference.
- Superfood Turmeric Blend – I used Further Food Super Food Turmeric, you can also use a combo of ground turmeric with a pinch of ground cardamom and a pinch of cinnamon.
TOOLS YOU WILL USE:
- Large mixing bowl
- Baking dish – either 8×8 or an oval 9″ will work
WHY IM ADDING SUPERFOOD TURMERIC TO ALL THE THINGS!
Further Food Superfood Turmeric is a blend of organic turmeric with 7 superfoods and adaptogens.
- Promotes daily anti-inflammatory support
- May help reduce joint pain and supports a reduction in gut inflammation
- Natural immunity booster – with ingredients like Schisandra berry, ginger, and clove this superfood turmeric blend is an excellent support for immune function!
- Highly bioavailable – most turmeric supplements do not contain enough curcumin (the active constituent in turmeric) and are not blended with an essential ingredient, black pepper, which increases the absorption ability of curcumin. Read more about black pepper and turmeric here.
- Super delicious! the blend of spices is absolutely divine. You can add it to warm milk or water for delicious golden milk.
HOW TO MAKE A FRUIT COBBLER – STEP BY STEP:
- Start with your favorite seasonal fruit. Cobblers are super flexible allowing for creativity and seasonality. You will need about 4-6 cups of fresh fruit. For peaches and nectarines, I prefer to leave the skin on but feel free to peel them if you prefer.
- Toss fruit with sweetness. You can use maple syrup, honey, coconut palm sugar, or regular sugar.
- Add a starchy binder. In this recipe I used arrowroot powder, cornstarch or just a bit of regular flour will also work.
- Make a biscuit topping. You can use any biscuit recipe you like, but I promise this golden milk biscuit does not disappoint! Made with almond flour and arrowroot, it is just cakey enough, with flecks of butter that melt into the fruit.
- Scoop the biscuit topping over the fruit, this does not need to be done perfectly it is a rustic dessert.
- Bake in the oven until browned and bubbly.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream!
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COBBLER, CRISP, CRUMBLE, and BUCKLE?
Crisp: A crisp is a fruit dessert with a topping made of oats, flour, butter and sugar
Crumble: Similar to a crisp, but typically the crumble topping does not contain oats
Cobbler: Fruit dessert with a biscuit-style topping.
Buckle: Fruit and cake baked together with a streusel topping
NUTRITION NERD CORNER 🤓
The Golden Beauty – Turmeric – why I add it to so many recipes!
Curcumin Vs. Turmeric
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and quite frankly the main reason you want to include turmeric into your diet.
Health Benefits of Turmeric
- Anti-inflammatory – curcumin has been shown to be as effective as many anti-inflammatory drugs, without the nasty side effects of pharmaceuticals. Reducing inflammation in the body is key to aid in disease prevention and improve overall health.
- Anti-oxidant – curcumin's antioxidant properties destroy free radicals in the body that damage blood cells.
- Anti-microbial – curcumin contains anti-microbial properties that help to fight off unwelcome pathogens.
- Wound healing – turmeric is a natural antibacterial agent and can be beneficial if used topically to help speed wound healing.
- Cancer Prevention – multiple research studies have found that curcumin can suppress cancerous tumor growth and also suppress the effects of cancer-causing environmental exposures.
DIETARY MODIFICATIONS FOR THIS RECIPE:
This recipe is gluten-free, vegetarian, and Paleo-friendly
- Vegan – Replace butter with coconut oil or vegan butter
- Paleo – This recipe is paleo-friendly. Use a dairy-free ice cream and if you don't tolerate butter replace it with coconut oil.

Gluten Free Peach Berry Cobbler
- 4-6 cups fresh fruit peaches, blueberries, raspberries

- 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
- Prepare Fruit: Core and slice peaches. I leave the skin on but you are welcome to peel as well. Wash blueberries and raspberries, toss together with peaches.
- Toss fruit with coconut palm sugar and arrowroot, set aside.
- Prepare biscuits. In a food processor combine all dry ingredients (almond flour through turmeric) pulse to combine. Add cold butter diced into small cubes. Pulse to combine or until butter resembles small pebbles,
- In a small bowl whisk together milk, eggs, and almond extract. Add to dough and pulse to combine.
- Add fruit to a large baking dish (either 9" oval or an 8x8 square) Using a cookie scoop, scoop biscuit batter on top of fruit.
- Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until biscuits are browned and fruit is bubbling.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream.
- Cut butter into 1 tbsp sized slices.
- Working in an opposite slicing fashion literally cut the butter into the flour until you have tiny bits of butter.
