Guest Post by Nathalie Lussier

When a person first discovers raw food, the thing that surprises her the most is how great the desserts taste! Truly guilt-free desserts part of an eating plan that’s not only healthy, but also environmentally conscious? Can’t ask for more than that!

Here is a super simple recipe that everybody will love. It’s a simply delicious peach cobbler, and you don’t even need an oven.

The Peaches

  • 8 Freshly sliced peaches
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2-3 Dashes of cinnamon

Blend all of these ingredients in a food processor or blender to your desired consistency, save for 2 of the peaches. Some people like their cobbler pretty smooth, others like it chunky. Place the blended portion in your cobbler dish. Add the remaining sliced peaches to the base of your plate and set aside.

The Topping

  • 2 cups of your favorite raw nuts (I recommend walnuts, cashews, and/or pecans)
  • 1 cup dates
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 3 Dashes of cinnamon
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon raw coconut oil

Blend all of these ingredients in a food processor until it turns to a nice crumbly texture. Deposit on top of your peach base. Now you can either serve immediately, or place it the sun for 10-20 minutes to warm it up a bit.

If you use fresh peaches, you can just leave them out of the refrigerator and you’ll naturally make a dish that’s room temperature. Your peach cobbler will taste stronger on the second day as the flavors meld together, that is if there is any left by then!

The beauty with this dish is that there is no artificial sugar, and it’s full of great omega-3’s from the nuts. Plus, once you taste this cobbler you’ll wonder why anyone ever bought canned peaches before.

  2. This looks incredible. Don’t think it will make it to the second day unless I hide it from my family, but then I’ll know where it is!

  3. Sounds good! Peaches and cinnamon harmonize together beautifully.

    I’ve been eating lot of peaches lately (working on a recipe for Peach Scuppernong Salsa for next week’s fruit salad blog post).

    If you ask me, the taste of a fresh juicy peach is truly the taste of summertime!

  4. I totally agree, fresh summer peaches are the best. You can also make a variation of this dish with apples when the weather gets cooler and apples are season. :)
