It’s Peach Season. PRAISE.
I know we’ve talked about this already, but I have been getting my produce from a local CSA this summer in Cleveland, and it has been one of the best decisions of my year.
I spent a few years working in a fine dining kitchen, and my chef had this glorious recipe for a bourbon peach cobbler, so what I’m saying is I’m good at two things- cutting peaches, and drinking bourbon.
Anyways. I sliced these up, and I wish I could show you how juicy they were. GOOD LORT. They didn’t need any extra sugar because they were so dang ripe. You just cannot make this stuff up, folks. Tear-worthy peaches, I’m tellin’ ya.
While I slowly cooked them in some Ghee and vanilla extract, I made a gluten free crumble out of rolled oats, gluten free oat flour, and a few extra things like salt, coconut sugar, ghee (butter), baking powder, and the best secret- lemon zest.
SO, back to the peaches getting all perfect in the pan, where I would usually add cornstarch, or something to thicken them, I went with Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin Collagen. This added a healthy thickening agent with a healthy dose of collagen for hair, skin, nail, and gut health. I’ll take all of those pro’s where I can get them, thank you. Think about your grandma making homemade jam, this is that kind of thickener, and it is flavorless!
After drizzling that into the simmering peaches, I mixed the crumble until tiny little pea-shaped balls formed, and sprinkled it over the top.
Then, I popped the whole pan into the oven for about 30 mins, and then it was done. Peachy Clean, because this cobbler is about as clean as a dessert can be.
I hope you make it, and tag me on Instagram, @thatswhatsheeats, and use the hashtag #thatswhatsheeats so I can keep up with you!
Here’s the Recipe.
Peachy Clean Collagen Cobbler.
6 ripe peaches, sliced. (I leave the skin on. just personal preference)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract.
2 scoops Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin Powder mixed with 1/4 cup warm water.
1/2 cup oat flour. (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1/3 cup rolled oats.
1/3 cup coconut sugar.
1/4 cup ghee or softened butter. (extra for sautéing peaches)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest.
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Mix the VP Beef Gelatin with 1/4 cup warm tap water and stir till combined. It will thicken almost immediately, and if it becomes TOO thick, add a few more splashes of water.
3.In an oven proof skillet, cast-iron, etc, sauté peaches in 2-3 tablespoons of melted ghee over medium heat, until they become soft and juices render. Add vanilla extract and the VP Gelatin mixture. Simmer on low for 5 more minutes.
4. While peaches are simmering, mix the rest of the ingredients for the Crumble Topping. Sprinkle over the thickened peaches, and transfer to oven to bake for 35-40 minutes.
5. The crust should be golden brown, and the peach juice should be bubbly and thick when the cobbler is done baking. Allow to cool and serve as is, or if you’re feeling crazy, your favorite scoop of ice cream! Enjoy!
Aly already ate half the pan and it hasn’t been out of the oven for more than three hours! I know you’re going to love this one!
