This peach cobbler is the perfect treat for just you or for a crowd. It comes together in minutes and can be made with any fruits of your choice to shake things up. Summer fruit desserts are sorted.
We all have those days where we just want a treat. Most of the time I want savory treats, like plantain chips, but there are days when something sweet and warm and baked is craved. Today was one of those days.
Many of the other AIP bloggers have posted amazing recipes for cakes and pies and whole trays of cobbler, but living alone those usually aren’t the best idea for me.
I . need . portion . control.
So, when the craving for a sweet treat hit tonight I discovered a ripe peach and within minutes the cobbler was in the oven and by the time the dinner dishes were washed my treat was ready to be enjoyed.
**A note about “AIP Treats”: While it is true that this cobbler and other treats on this blog are made with AIP friendly ingredients, it should be noted that the AIP diet is primarily about nutrient density and healing and with that in mind treats should be reserved for special occasions. Treats are occasional foods, not everyday food. Treat often are higher in sugar content (even fruit) and as sugar causes inflammation for many of us following AIP, we need to make treats an occasional part of our lives.
