Healthy Summer Peach Cobbler Recipe

Health Writer

This is the perfect time of year to find tree-ripened peaches in many locations. Tonight, my husband and I visited a nearby orchard and we used the peaches we picked to throw together a summery treat for our boys. Each peach contains about 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C and oats are known to reduce cholesterol.  When cooked, the natural sugars in peaches make them a delectable dessert even without adding much additional sugar.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium/large ripe peaches
  • 2 Tbs. white sugar
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 2 Tbs. white sugar
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 Tbs. butter or butter substitute (I used canola oil spread)
  • 2 Tbs. rolled oats
  • Dash of salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel and cut the peaches into slices. Put them in a mixing bowl. Add the sugars, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Toss to coat evenly. Divide the peaches between four small ramekins. Place the ramekins on a cookie sheet and heat in the oven for 10 minutes. In the meantime, mix together the remaining ingredients. Use a fork or your fingers to mix the butter throughout. After 10 minutes, remove the peaches from the oven and divide the topping between them. Return them to the oven for 25 minutes. Let cool a few minutes and then serve warm.
