Gluten Free and Paleo Cherry Cobbler

My Gluten Free Cherry Cobbler is made with almond flour and sweetened with dates, no processed sugar. Plus it only has 10 ingredients!

Looking for the perfect dessert to top off a spring or summer bar-be-que? My gluten free and Paleo Cherry Cobbler comes together quickly, can be made in advanced and served hot or cold. It's extra yummy when served with a scoop of homemade coconut milk ice cream.

    I really don’t like coconut flakes, and was thinking of omitting them, but at a half cup I’m not sure. Should I add a little more almond flour if I leave out the coconut flakes?

    • Andrea Schulle

      Hi Marcy! Since I haven’t tested it, I cannot say for sure, but I would suspect you would need a little extra almond flour. Maybe add extra almond flour little by little until desired texture is reached. If you give it a try, let us know how it goes!
