Blueberry/Peach cobbler (lowfat and Gluten free version)
This is delicious and very moist although no fat is added. I used FRESH peaches. It is so good to find low fat GF Desserts. I adapted this from a fatfreevegan recipe. (If you are not doing gluten free then omit the xanthan gum and use regular flour. The fatfreevegan recipe which is not gluten free can be found HERE called for 3/4 cup of part to all whole wheat and 1/4 cup soy flour, but you can go to her site. I believe you could use all purpose regular flour since the GF flour worked great. Also she uses nutmeg , but I don't like it in this.Her recipe was for peach cobbler using canned peaches).
Serving Size : 9
1 cup of Bob's Gluten Free all purpose flour (do NOT use hodgens (sp?)brand)
1/2 tsp Xanthan gum (Omit if not doing gluten free)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup soy milk or Almond milk (I used almond)
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 16-ounce can sliced peaches — well drained & cut into 1/2″ pieces (I used 4 ripe peaches)a handful of blue berries
extra sugar to sprinkle over fresh fruit (1/8 to 1/4 cup)
Preheat the oven to 350°.
In a medium bowl combine all purpose GF flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir together well.
Add milk and almond extract and stir just until blended. Gently stir in the well-drained and chopped peaches and blueberries and srinkle extra sugar over the fruit if you are using fresh fruit.
Pour the batter into an 8″ square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into 9 squares to serve.
Very nice fresh out of the oven and warm!
