Aunt Rachel's Famous Peach Cobbler


2 cups almond meal
1 cup tapioca or potato starch
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup coconut sugar (this has a nice brown-sugar flavor; if you use a different sugar, the flavor will be different)
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick melted butter (use a little less if you want a more crumbly crust)

Mix together with a pastry blender and press into a large, greased rectangular baking pan.  Reserve 1/2 to 1 cup of the mixture to sprinkle on top of the peaches, as a crumble.


Cut up about 6-8 large peaches and place in a large bowl.  Mix in the following ingredients:

1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup coconut sugar (if the peaches are not very sweet, you may need a little more)
1 cup oatmeal
1/4 tsp salt

Pour into the pan with the crust and sprinkle the reserved "crumble" on top.  If there is no reserved crumble, that is fine too, as I have made it both ways which have both turned out very well.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.  It should be bubbling and the crumble should be golden brown.

Note that this recipe could probably be used with apples as well, and the crust is very versatile for many different desserts.

This is an unofficial recipe; I have written it down as I remember it, since I have used inexact measurements in making this dessert and my own creativity.  I never used a recipe.  I plan to tweak this written recipe in the future if I see that measurements need to be adjusted.  If you use this recipe and like it, please leave me a comment, and if you make any adjustments which make it better, please let me know!
