: 6 ramekins
: Easy

By:

Ingredients
  • 4 peaches (I used big South Carolina peaches, not small ones)
  • 2 tbsp of coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp of vanilla
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • Half a stick of grass-fed butter
  • 3 tbsp of dairy free coconut creamer
  • 1/2 cup of almond flour
  • 1/2 cup of gluten free rolled oats
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 375.
  • Step 2 First cut your peaches into small pieces and place in a pan with a dab of your butter in the pan. Cook over low heat until the peaches begin to soften. Add in cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Step 3 Next, in a bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugar.
  • Step 4 Then, cut the rest of your butter into small pieces and add that to the flour mixture.
  • Step 5 Using your hands (or a mixer) mix the flour and butter mixture together until it is crumbly or just in pieces and then add in creamer.
  • Step 6 Set up your greased ramekins and start to fill them with the warm peaches mixture. I usually add a thin layer of the butter and flour mixture to the bottom first, then peaches, then top it with the flour and butter mixture again.
  • Step 7 Bake for 40 minutes , let cool, and enjoy!
