Paleo Peach Cobbler

Fruit cobblers are one of the easiest desserts to make and enjoy on a healthy-living diet. How to do it? Cut the extra sugar, the fruit is sweet enough; use almond meal instead of flour, it’s crumbly and delicious; and finally, use FRESH produce, the canned stuff should not be considered a fruit.

Peach cobbler is my favorite cobbler. Every year, I eagerly wait for peach season – or to me, peach cobbler season.

Peach cobbler brings back wonderful memories of summer, family gatherings, and camping.

I grew up as a Girl Scout – or rather, I LOVED camping, so I stayed in Girl Scouts. I grew to love the organization for other reasons, but it definitely started because of my love for the outdoors.

A campout wouldn’t be the same without a few foodie staples: foil dinners, s’mores, and dutch oven peach cobber.

This peach cobbler recipe is slightly elevated with fresh thyme for our adult “Glamping” pallets. The thyme brings a rustic savory flavor to this summertime classic.

[Glamping = glamorous camping. It usually involves wine, air mattresses, fire starters, and paleo thyme peach cobbler.]

    Wow, this sounds great with the thyme in it. What a nice combination of flavors, and different too.

    Yum! This is something that I know my family will enjoy, including those who really don’t want to think they’re eating healthy (the youngest.) Thanks!

    I just made this and had it alongside Blue Moon’s newest Caramel Apple Cider Ale. Delish! Made my night even though it kind of ruined the paleo part 🙂

    This was really yummy! I left out the thyme because I really dislike it, and I subbed pasture butter for the coconut oil. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I had to change was the cook time, it was ready and browned in about 30 minutes. I think if I had left it for 45 it would have been a little burnt, but maybe using butter changed it. Overall it was delicious, not overly sweet but definitely flavorful!
