Happy Hump Day!

Since I have been craving LOTS of sweets lately and I had one remaining bag of peaches from the orchard by my parents’ house, I decided to make a peach cobbler yesterday.

Peaches

I contemplated on what kind of cobbler to make — a regular one with white flour and sugar (which my husband would prefer!) or a healthier version with almond flour, honey and coconut oil. My pregnancy brain said go for the gusto and make the “real deal,” but then the other pre-pregnancy brain said try a healthier version, because it can be just as good, but so much better for you. Well, the pre-pregnancy brain won over, which hasn’t happen very much lately. But, I have to say, the cobbler turned out great and Keenan and my husband (who practically ate half of it last night!) love it!

Instead of talking about my eats for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, I’ll share this delicious cobbler recipe…

Peas and Crayons

First, peel and slice your over-ripe, juicy peaches. Add them to a large sauce pan with water and honey. As soon as they start to boil, turn down the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or so (until it starts to thicken).

Peaches cooking

Next, make your cobbler mixture/dough.

Add cooked peaches to prepared baking dish and top with cobbler mixture/dough.

Peach cobbler prior to baking

Bake for 30-40 minutes until slightly brown and bubbly!
