are two main steps to making peach cobbler. Step one is to gently boil
your peaches into a syrup. The peach syrup should be made first so you
don't get your ingredients
The peaches, Xylitol, water and lemon mixture is what makes the syrup. So make sure you do this part first, because the batter has completely separate ingredients. Once you're done with the peach syrup, the next step is to layer this mixture into the batter.

Melt the butter in a pan. Once the butter is melted, coat a 9 X 13 baking dish with the melted butter, being sure to coat the entire bottom and the edges.
Place the batter evenly into the baking dish. Pour the peach/syrup mixture gently on top of the batter, pushing the peaches into the batter. Do not stir. Make sure the peaches are evenly distributed throughout the entire batter mixture.
Place the baking dish with the peaches into the oven, which has previously been pre-heated at 350. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. The batter will bubble up over the peaches. Some people like to put the batter on top of the peaches. Either way, it's going to come out delicious.
Please Note: The color of the peach cobbler cooked with oat or soy flour will be a touch darker than white
flour. Also, cooking times may vary, depending on your oven. You may
have to cook the cobbler for up to 50 minutes, because oat and soy flour take a
bit longer than white.
Extra Tip: You can use different flours. If you choose to use coconut flour, it will change the consistency and taste of the batter, and may not come out right. Coconut flour tends to absorb all of the liquid and it reacts completely different to fluids. We highly advise not using coconut flour. Every other flour may be used for this peach cobbler recipe.
We use Bob's Red Mill Xanthan Gum to bind and thicken the batter. The reason for this is that oat batter has no gluten, so it's used in many gourmet kitchens for this very reason.Click here to order xanthan gum
We also use Bob's Red Mill's Oat Flour. Oat flour is a lot safer than white flour. The glycemic index rating for oats is 40, which is low to moderate. When oats are ground down, it's most certainly going to raise the glycemic index of the oats. But if you're counting the fiber contained within a serving of oats, that's going to lower the glycemic load, and the glycemic load is a much better measurement for blood sugar levels.Click here to Order Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oat Flour
