make it paleo: cobbler

ok, so i know today is Wednesday... and i should be posting about what we wore... and i also didn't post about it last week... 

i guess i'm just not loving any outfits i have right now. so i'm going to post about food instead. 

since i am a sugar addict trying to recover, i need to keep things around my house that will satisfy my sweet tooth while still keeping me on the paleo track. i've tried several different dessert recipes, some have passed and some have failed miserably. it's just not easy making healthy comfort food! here is one recipe that passed the test. the "cobbler crust" is from this apple crisp recipe and i switched up the fruit from apples to pears and berries. 

here's my version:

2 c finely ground blanched almond flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/3 c coconut oil
1/4 c agave nectar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
4 ripe pears, pealed and cut into 1" chunks
1 1/2 c frozen mixed berries, thawed
1/2 c coconut palm sugar

1. in a large bowl combine almond flour, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.
2. in another bowl combine oil, nectar, and vanilla.
3. add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. the mixture will turn a little pasty.
(i forgot to take a picture of these steps! ah!)

4. toss pears, berries, and coconut palm sugar. 

5. place pear berry mixture into a 1 1/2qt. dish (mine is corningware)

6. grab chunks of the cobbler paste and crumble over pear berry mixture. 

7. bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. 


i had a sweet new friend over earlier this morning to test it out and we both loved it! i hope you do to.
