Sweet, juicy peaches and a cinnamon flavored biscuit topping are combined to make a delicious cobbler dessert in your cast iron skillet. Nothing says it’s still summer than a scoop of melting ice cream over a fresh from the oven keto peach cobbler!
- 1 cup almond flour, sifted
- 2 TB coconut flour, sifted
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 TB granulated sugar substitute
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 TB softened butter
- 2 TB heavy cream
- 2 TB sour cream
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute ( I used Swerve)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 TB lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 tsp. coconut flour
- 1 tsp. xanthan gum (for thickening the syrup)
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 4 barely ripe peaches, cut into slices ( I chose to peel half and leave the skin on for the other).
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Make the biscuit topping-combine all dry ingredients.
- Mix in the butter, creams, egg until fully combined. Set aside.
- Make the cobbler syrup- in a cast iron skillet mix the sugar, salt, water, coconut flour, xanthan gum. Stir until syrup begins to simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes until it is thickened.
- Add peaches, spices and vanilla. Stir until peaches are fully coated with the syrup, about 2-3 minutes.
- Drop 2 TB of dough onto peach mixture in cast iron skillet. You should get about 8 biscuits.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Test with toothpick or wooden skewer to make sure biscuits are cooked all the way through. You can lightly cover with foil and cook a few minutes longer if needed.
*To peel or not to peel…I have made this cobbler with the skin on and also peeled. I prefer without, hubby likes the skin.
**The cobbler also is best when the peaches are not too ripe. You don’t want them to get mushy in the oven. I believe peaches are ripe when you can just about smell their lovely fragrance. You shouldn’t be able to leave an indentation on them when you press down on them.
*** Keto Peach Cobbler will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
****This cobbler dessert is a bit higher in carbs for some who are following a strict keto diet. In order to lower the carb count, I would make the serving size a bit smaller. Peaches are one of the fruits that are lower in carbs, but they still have sugar in them. My thoughts are that this is an occasional treat that I would adjust my macros for the day. It is worth it!
