The following is a guest post from my friend Kim Maes of Cook IT Allergy Free. I originally published this post three years ago, but thought it was a great recipe to bring back to your attention.
This Plum Cobbler recipe is so simple to throw together and is full of healthy and fresh ingredients. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, egg-free, and soy-free! A perfect summer dessert for sure.
While on vacation just recently, we were lucky enough to be surrounded by some beautiful plum trees that were dripping with ripe fruit. My boys had a blast picking all of the fruit from the tree, but before we knew it, I had more plums than we could possibly eat.
I am never one to waste any kind of produce, so I decided to whip up some of my favorite mini Plum Cobblers. It was a great way to go through all of that fruit that was only getting riper by the minute on the counter, and it was a perfect summer treat to come home to after spending the day on the beach.
- 4 medium red or black plums, barely ripe
- 4 teaspoons all-purpose gluten-free flour blend (such as Pamela's)
- 1 Tablespoon coconut palm sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 Tablespoons solid coconut oil (chilled)
- 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats (or equal amount of quinoa flakes)
- 1/4 cup almond flour (or additional 1/4 cup gluten free flour blend)
- 1/4 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour blend
- 1 – 2 Tablespoons ground chia seeds or flax meal (optional)
- 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease four 6-ounce ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Filling may bubble over, so you can line baking the sheet with foil for easy clean up, if desired.
- In small bowl, mix together filling ingredients and divide evenly between your ramekins.
- Place the topping ingredients in another bowl and use a pastry blender (or a fork) to crumble/cream your ingredients together until coarse meal forms.
- Divide topping evenly among each ramekin and place in the oven for 25 minutes. If you like a crispy top, you can turn the broiler on for 2 - 3 minutes at the very end, but watch very carefully if you do this so it does not burn!
