Raw Peach Cobbler

Since I did my first Conscious Cleanse 1.5 years ago, I have been cleaning up my meals a lot because when I eat mostly according to the rules of the Conscious Cleanse, I feel my best.

Years ago, one of my favorite desserts was fruit cobbler, especially peach cobbler. But it was definitely a splurge food, containing lots of sugar, butter, flour, and eggs.

Eating healthy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the flavors of your favorite dishes. You just have to modify the dishes a bit. I therefore experimented with making a raw peach cobbler. This one is definitely a winner – flavorful, yet healthy and “clean.” It may not be the ideal food while you are cleansing as it combines nuts and fruits, but it’s a good choice while getting ready for a cleanse or the rest of the year.

Raw Peach Cobbler

Servings: Three
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup raisins – I used Trader Joe’s raisin medley – make sure the raisin you buy don’t have added sugar!
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter – I used raw almond butter
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 peaches
  • 1 –2 teaspoons lemon juice
  1. Slice three peaches into bite-size pieces and layer them into small serving dishes.
  2. Take the pit out of one peach and process it in a food processor with the lemon juice.
  3. Spread the pureed peach over the layered peaches.
  4. Puree the raisins, nut butter, cinnamon, salt, and pecans in the food processor until the mixture is crumbly.
  5. Crumble the raisin/nut mixture over the peaches.
  6. Put the cobbler into the fridge for at least 30 minutes so it can set.
  7. Enjoy!
We all like this healthy, flavorful dessert. The riper and more flavorful the peaches are, the better the cobbler. This cobbler certainly makes eating healthy a joy.

  3. I love cobbler, but I agree that it's a splurge. Your version looks delicious, and like a dish that won't weigh your down! It's a fantastic way to enjoy the fruits of the season :)

    1. Thanks, Jessie! Fruit at its peak needs very little added to it... :)

  4. I LOVE peaches & that looks amazing!!!!!

    1. Thanks, Jody! And it's simple - our kind of dish... :)

  5. Conscious Cleanse?

    Don't we owe it to ourselves to live our life to the full EVERY DAY eating healthily, taking exercise, establishing good sleep patterns.

    For me this is:

    Eating, low carb, high fat, moderate protein
    Regular exercise
    Good sleep patterns.

    I love a little peach mixed with a soft cheese included with my favourite salad.

    Take Care and

    All the best Jan

    1. Hi Jan, Yes, I think it is very important to make the best possible choices every day, and I certainly strive to do so.

      I like to do the Concsious Cleanse once in a while because it helps me reset things that I tend to overdo a bit over time. For example, I really like cheese, and it's easy for me to indulge a bit too much. During the cleanse I don't eat any dairy products, and it helps me to get back to a better cheese intake after the cleanse. It's nothing extreme, but I love to eat mainly vegetables for a couple of weeks.

      I'm currently traveling and have been making overall good choices with plenty of vegetables but also a few too many treats. I'm really looking forward to getting back to a clean slate when I get back! :)

      Soft cheese and peach in a salad sounds good!

  6. Cherries are definitely my favorite - especially Ranier (sp?) cherries - so good! Your cobbler looks delish!

  7. I love Rainier cherries in the summer! This peach cobbler looks wonderful & good for you!

    1. Rainier cherries are wonderful!

  8. What a great idea of using raw peaches for the cobbler...especially when it is hot and I do not feel like turning the oven on...looks great favorite summer fruit? I cannot pick one since there are so many that I like!
    Have a great weekend :D

  9. Hi Andrea!!
    Hope you and your family are well!
    Recipe looks absolutely delicious! I'll have to check out the Conscious Cleanse - I've not generally been a fan of cleanses, but I am all for "re-setting" from time to time - I'm going to check it out!! Be well!!

    1. Yes, re-setting is much needed once in awhile... :)
