Apple Pecan Cobbler – Vegan Gluten Free

I love cobbler.  It is a healthy fruit dessert.  The apples are so sweet this time of year, you only need to add a little maple syrup or honey.  This version is made with coconut oil instead of butter.  I could hardly taste the difference.  Bob’s makes a gluten free flour which is a perfect substitute for whole wheat pastry flour.  The pecans supply some protein and fiber to balance out the fruit, so you can enjoy this dessert without your blood sugar spiking.

4 servings

1 cup pecans coarsely chopped
¾ cup Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour
4 Tb coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 cups apples peeled, cored and sliced
¼ cup maple syrup or other sweetener
1 Tb arrowroot
1 tsp cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Gently melt the coconut oil in a small pan on low and add vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, mix pecans with flour.
  • Pour the melted coconut oil over the pecan mixture. Set aside
  • In the measuring cup mix the maple syrup, cinnamon and arrowroot. Stir with a fork to dissolve so there are no lumps
  • Pour the maple mixture over apple.
  • Mix so the maple syrup is evenly distributed.  Don’t let this sit, the apples will start giving off liquid.
  • Put into a 6 cup baking dish.
  • Top with pecan mixture.
  • Bake on the top half of the oven for 45 minutes or until pecans are lightly brown and the filling is bubbling.
  • Let cool slightly serve.

This will be good for 2-3 days at room temperature
