Hello friends. Are you ready for this? First, allow me to entice you with a few words …dessert, bing cherries, single serving, honey, paleo(ish), and easy. My goodness – this is tasty business.
Are you familiar with those days when you do your best to eat healthy/wholesome meals? You’re “good” all the way through dinner. THEN, the dessert hour is upon you. What do reach for? A piece of fruit? Good for you! I’m not always that good. I’ve made this dessert to help you through those times when you’re craving pie, or cobbler, or both. This delicious cobbler alternative will fool your family into thinking they’re eating the traditional sugar and butter filled dish.
If cooking with almond meal is new for you, worry not. It can be found at most grocery stores and serves as a great replacement to flour. I recommend keeping a bag of it on hand. You’ll see me use it in everything from meatballs to baked desserts.
If you’re cooking for more than yourself, just multiply the amounts by the number of people. Feel free to make this dish “family style” by baking it in a larger dish and increasing the time in the oven.
