Gluten-Free Berry Peach Cobbler

Gluten Free Berry Peach Cobbler - The Sunday Table www.thesundaytable.com (4 of 5)I sat at my kitchen table feeling so incredibly overwhelmed, stretched thin by all of the moving pieces in my life. Coming off a conversation with my mother about life’s recent adventures and all of the shaky parts, I could no longer concentrate on what I had been attempting to do. The clock read 9:30 but my eyes felt more like quarter to twelve. I’d woken up and gotten straight to work, coming off of a weekend full of work and found myself there looking at the clock still steadfast at work. Where had the day gone? Where had May and June gone? Where had I lost myself? Counting back in my mind the number of steps I’d taken, ounces of water I’d consumed and number of times I’d eaten with dinner still to be had. I needed a moment. I paused to read this and listen to this and to feed myself with what little food I had left in my fridge as I remembered that I still needed to make a grocery list for the week. Pause. I got to work on these pancakes because thank goodness I had just the right sparse ingredients to re-create them. Mixed the batter by hand because I needed to feel the worthiness of my hands for something true, something other than typing.

In that moment of pause I was reminded to look for the good. How in amongst the blur that was May and June there was beauty, there was celebration, a vacation, there were beginnings, there were endings, all time worth spending. The moving pieces acting as vital forces, the challenges, the opportunities, the awakenings, the shaky parts, those made up the good stuff. I may have stretched myself thin but through it I found new strength. I opened myself up to be renewed and change came barreling through.

When the heart desires berry crisp and gluten free peach cobbler, this happens. The filling is adapted from Kimberley‘s beautiful cookbook Vibrant Food (see other lovely versions of the crisp here and here) and the biscuit topping adapted from Erin‘s Homemade Flour Cookbook (another version here).

A berry filled gluten free peach cobbler.




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prep all of the fruit and then place in an 8x8 baking dish. Toss with lemon juice, zest and maple sugar until evenly coated. Set aside to let the fruit soften from the sugar.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, maple sugar and salt. Cut in, or work in by hand, the coconut oil until little clumps of dough form.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and almond milk. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until a sticky dough forms.
  5. Scoop out small pieces of dough and form into thin rounds. Place dough rounds on top of the fruit, working your way around the pan until fruit is covered and dough has been used up. Should make 9-12 thin rounds.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Biscuits should be golden brown and fruit should be bubbling. Remove from oven and let cool slightly, 15-20 minutes, before serving.

Good morning! I'm going to try adapting your recipes with tropical fruits (e.g. mango por peaches, lychee for cherries). I can make my own oat flour by putting it in a food processor, correct? I've been enjoying your posts and can't wait to try the recipes.
