Skinny Peach Cobbler For One

Since I’m reducing my sugar intake over the next month to prepare for the Rock n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon, I thought I’d make a skinny version of peach crisp to calm my sugar craving. It can be the worst, and also peaches are AMAZING right now!

Training has been coming along, but I’ve decided that I need to switch things up a bit. So, after the half marathon I’m going to start training for a triathlon! I’ve done one before, but I took it slow since I didn’t know what I capable of yet and am super excited to start “shopping” for a race. Baking and racing – it’s what i’m all about.

This little cobbler is perfect if you’re trying to cut some sugar out of your diet without sacrificing flavour. My butter loving boy went crazy for this, my butter loving cat went crazy for this (but mostly just for the butter), and I devoured it needing to make it AGAIN to satisfy my craving. Perhaps these aren’t so skinny…

To make these preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Slice a peach in half and remove the pit. With a small spoon, scoop out the the dark red pit center, creating a bit more room for the crumble topping.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, salt, and coconut. Add butter and, with your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients.

Quickly break up the butter until it is well combined.

Place peach halves, cut side up, in a small, oven-safe dish. Top each peach half with a generous portion of crumble topping. Heap it on!

Bake for 20 minutes, until topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm with vanilla ice cream or cold milk. Delicious!

Easy Peach Cobbler For One
Recipe lightly adapted from Joy The Baker
Serves 1-2

Ingredients:
1 ripe peach (not over ripe!)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon toasted coconut
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed

Directions:
Place a rack in the center of the oven, and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Slice a peach in half and remove the pit. With a small spoon, scoop out the the dark red pit center, creating just a bit more room for the crumble topping.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, salt, and coconut. Add butter and, with your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients. Quickly break up the butter until it is well combined. Some of the butter bits will be the size of oat flakes, others will be the size of small peas.

Place peach halves, cut side up, in a small, oven-safe dish. Top each peach half with a generous portion of crumble topping. Heap it on!

Bake for 20 minutes, until topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm with vanilla ice cream or cold milk. Peaches are best served warm from the oven.
