Fruit-Sweetened Grain-Free Vegan Cobbler

“How do you make cobbler without flour?”

(With a smile on my face) “I have my ways.”

Thus began the workroom discussion of how someone like me can still enjoy foods like the rest of you.

Okay maybe not the rest of you, because there is a strong chance that if you are viewing this page it’s because you eat at least somewhat like me…

But what about those who still happily reside in the gluten and dairy-loving world?

Yeah, like them too.

Made from ingredients that can always be found in my pantry and in my freezer,   this recipe goes together as quickly as the classic dump-cake only without all of the added sugars, dairy and grains. Big enough to feed my family of 7 and still have plenty left for company to enjoy, this cobbler has become my go-to dessert for family gatherings, pot lucks or even that unexpected dinner guest you so willingly wish to impress.

From my home to yours, enjoy.

    Can I sub the shortening for butter or coconut oil

    • 🙂 You are welcome to experiment any way you wish. Coconut oil works well, I simply like the flavor of the Spectrum Butter-Flavored Palm Shortening better, and the crumble seems to hold more firmly as well. Give it a try and let me know!
