Individual Grain Free Peach and Apricot Cobbler

So, have you ever made a pan of brownies, eaten half the batter out of the bowl and somehow the rest of the brownies mysteriously disappeared into your stomach before the night was over? Yeah, me neither. But, even if the thought to attack that bowl of cookie batter with a spoon has ever entered your head while baking, then this single serving dessert could save you a lot of guilt...and calories!

Warm, peach and apricot filling, topped with a sweet, buttery crumb topping - this tiny treat has all the flavor of a delicious peach cobbler in an individual serving size that will leave you satisfied, without a pan full of leftovers calling your name from the fridge. If you are feeling generous, you can double the recipe and make one for your significant other (or mom, dad, best friend, roommate, dog...whatever) like I did. Or you can just make one, eat it in front of them and make them super jealous! But you aren't mean like that, are you?

Individual Grain Free Peach and Apricot Cobbler
Serves: 1 (Duh!)
Time: 30 Minutes

For the filling:
1 peach, cored and diced
6 dried apricots, diced
1 tsp coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground clove
1/2 tsp vanilla

For the crumb topping:
2 tbsp almond meal
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp ghee, softened to room temperature
Drizzle of honey

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine all filling ingredients in a small ramekin, stir well to incorporate spices and coat peaches with coconut oil. Place ramekin on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes.

While filling is baking, mix together almond meal, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add vanilla and ghee. Using your hands or a fork, mix ghee around until well combined with other topping ingredients and a crumble forms.

Remove ramekin from oven. Drizzle peaches with honey and spread evenly with crumb topping. Return to oven for an additional 15 minutes, until crumb topping is beginning to brown. Serve warm.
