Gluten Free Cherry Cobbler – Happy Labor Day!
Check out this new cherry cobbler recipe that I developed, and just in time for Labor Day.
Not only is this my version of Cherry Dump Cake, but it combines almond flour and cherries, amazing sources of antioxidants. Although this recipe does use tapioca flour to mimic a traditional cherry dump cake recipe, which is quite high in carbohydrates, it is a grain-free starch that is used in small quantities, so the recipe has a very low glycemic load.
I like serve this warm, and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Cinnamon can help regulate healthy blood sugar levels, as does the natural fats, proteins and fiber found in this cherry cobbler recipe.
Gluten Free Cherry Cobbler Recipe
Cherry and Pineapple Layer:
1 1/2 cup crushed pineapple in water (not drained)
3 tablespoons of organic butter
Sift almond, tapioca and coconut flours together in a medium bowl. Sift in sweeteners, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine.
In a medium saucepan, combine cherries, water and xylitol/coconut palm sugar and bring to a simmer. Sift in tapioca flour and salt, stirring well to dissolve. Simmer until the mixture becomes thick and slightly gelatinous. Take off heat and stir in lemon juice, if using.
In a glass baking dish, pour the cherry mixture with the crushed pineapple and its water on the bottom. Mix together and cover the entire bottom of the dish. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the top, covering well. Divide the butter into teaspoons and place evenly on top of the flour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes, or until warm and bubbly. Let cool slightly and serve warm.
