I bought some peaches at the store this week that weren’t quite ripe yet. I was just so excited!! I mean come on, PEACHES!!!!
I let them sit on the windowsill alllll week. Taunting me…tempting me! I picked them up this morning, smelled their sweet, peachy scent and then, sadly, felt their firm flesh. Ugh….STILL NOT RIPE!
I was tired of waiting, though, so here’s what I cooked up, and let me tell you, it was DELICIOUS!
I only had two peaches on hand, so I supplemented with strawberries. Mmm… a match made in tastebud heaven!
You can make this with whatever fresh (or underripe) fruit you have on hand. If the fruit you’re using is very wet (like ripe plums) then add a bit more flour to the fruit mixture.
Since I’m trying to be mindful of the food I’m using to fuel my body, I cut out a lot of the sugar found in traditional cobbler recipes, to let the natural sweetness of the fruit shine through.
Instead of ice cream (though it would be FANTASTIC with ice cream) I topped my cobbler with a dollop of plain greek yogurt. The creamy, tanginess of the yogurt was the perfect contrast to the sweet, crunchiness of the cobbler.
Here’s the recipe! Hope you have a tasty weekend! Don’t forget to enter to win two boxes of Julie’s Original Gluten Free cake mix!!
