Oh man, there's nothing like a sweet juicy pear! They seriously taste like nature's sugar to me. Crazy enough, 1 pear only has 9 grams of sugar while 1 banana has around 14 grams! You would think it was the other way around! This next recipe uses pear as the base but you could easily use apples or peaches instead. I kept the flour simple for you (for those of you that don't like to mix flours). It's simply oat flour. The taste is amazing!
Gluten Free Pear Cobbler
Created by jalene
- 3 cups pears
- 3 Tbsp sugar or evaporated cane juice sugar
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch (I prefer non-GMO cornstarch)
- 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 cup gluten free oat flour (or you can make your own by grinding 1/2 cup oats)
- 1 Tbsp sugar or evaporated cane juice sugar
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 2 Tbsp butter or Earth Balance Butter Sub
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp milk or milk alternative
- 1/2 tsp gluten free vanilla extract or if you're brave you could try almond extract instead
- Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.
- For the cobbler, in a medium bowl stir together the oat flour, 1 Tbsp sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon (if using). Cut in the butter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Set aside.
- Wash and remove the cores from your pears. (I left the skins on mine but you could remove them if you want.) Slice (about 12 slices per pear) and place in a large bowl. Add the 3 Tbsp sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Stir well. Pour into a 8x8 baking dish or somewhat similar size pan.
- In a small bowl combine the egg and milk. Add to the flour mixture and stir until moistened. Using a spoon, immediately drop the topping onto the pears in small mounds.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick in the topping comes out clean.
