Introduction

Lightly sweet and nutty, this clean eating crock pot peach cobbler recipe does double duty as a healthy dessert or a great breakfast/brunch dish. Because it is made in the crock pot, prep is no fuss and easy to do. Plus, this dish can be made gluten free if gluten free oats are used and can accommodate vegan diets by substituting maple syrup for honey.

Packed full of good carbs, this dish will fuel you all day long if you eat it as a healthy breakfast but is still tasty enough to satisfy a dessert craving. The peaches are a great source of cancer fighting antioxidants, filling fiber, and deliver a shot of immune system boosting Vitamins A and C.

Ingredients

Servings: 5
Macros: Calories 219 kcal, Protein 6g, Carbs 35g, Fat 6.5g

  • 135g of rolled oats
  • 720 ml of unsweetened almond milk*
  • 5 peaches
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon + additional to sprinkle on peaches
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 5 tbsp of slivered almonds, to garnish

Method

1. Spray your crock pot with nonstick spray. Add in the rolled oats, milk, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook on low for 6-7 hours**, until the oats are creamy and the milk is mostly absorbed.

2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat and spray with nonstick spray. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit. Sprinkle the cut side with cinnamon. Place the peaches on the grill, cut side down, and cook for 3-4 minutes before removing from heat.

3. To assemble, place the peaches cut side up on a plate. Spoon the cooked oats into the hollow part of the peaches. Garnish with almonds if desired.

Notes

*You may substitute any milk you’d prefer in this recipe. The almond milk tastes slightly sweeter than regular milk and adds a subtle nutty flavor to the cooked oats. If you’d like to substitute another milk but would still like the nutty flavor, add a teaspoon of almond extract.

**Every slow cooker is different. Until you know how long this recipe takes in your slow cooker, it is best to make when you can check on it and can adjust your cook time as needed.
