Almond Flour Plum Cobbler

Featuring the sweetest summer stone fruit, this delicate almond flour plum cobbler offers a burst of bliss with every bite, thanks to thick segments of juicy burgundy plums and a crumbly blend of bright spices and chopped pistachios for crunchy contrast.

Paleo plum pistachio cobbler

Crumble:

  • 1 cup fine almond flour
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 3 tablespoons dried maple sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil, melted

Filling:

  • 8 cups diced plums
  • 2 tablespoons dried maple sugar
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder

Equipment:

  • 14×9 Large Oval Ceramic Baker (holds ~3 quarts)
  • Oven: preheated to 350 degrees F

Instructions:

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.

Next, pit and dice the plums. I used 30 small burgundy plums to reach 8 cups (these were homegrown and roughly 1/2 the size of a store-bought plum).

After preparing the plums, place the fruit in the large oval ceramic baker that can hold ~3 quarts, and toss with the maple sugar and arrowroot powder.

Next, in a small bowl, combine the almond flour, pistachios, spices, sugar and salt. Then, pour in the melted coconut oil and work the mixture with your hands or a fork to help form clumps. Finally, spread the crumble topping evenly over the plums.

When the cobbler is prepared, bake the dessert for 60 minutes, or until the topping is toasted and golden.

Serve this almond flour plum cobbler warm or cold.

Notes:

  • Consider Coombs Family Farms for their dried maple sugar and dedication to sustainable forestry.
  • Oats are the classic cobbler topping and naturally gluten-free (if uncontaminated); however, they may still be of issue to those with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Even if the oats being used are certified gluten-free (meaning that they were not processed in the same facility as food products containing gluten), oat protein (avenin) has a similar structure to the protein found in gluten (gliadin). For some, this can cause digestive distress.
  • If you can tolerate oats, you may benefit from their soluble dietary fiber (notably beta-glucan) that can have a positive effect on cholesterol levels and colon health. Find a recipe with an oat-topping for proportions and changes in cooking time. For those avoiding oats altogether, mushrooms, seaweeds and certain algae also offer a healthy dose of beta-glucan and additional soluble dietary fiber can be found in a variety of fruits and starchy vegetables.
  • This cobbler is best accompanied with a scoop of my coconut nicecream.
