I love this time of year! It’s summertime and peaches are in season yum! August has even been designated National Peach Month (if you need an excuse to make this delicious dessert). So I decided to head over to my local farmer’s market and pick up a bunch of peaches to make this recipe for Peach Cobbler Bars that I found on another blog.
One of my favorite things about baking is the amazing aroma that fills your house and brings everyone running to the kitchen. This one did not disappoint! Peaches, cinnamon, and coconut oil filled the house. You have to try this coconut oil recipe!
Peach Cobbler Bars
Recipe adapted from The Brown Eyed Baker
For the Dough:
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar (try 1/2 cup sugar for a less sweet dough)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup Kelapo Coconut Oil, solid
1 egg, lightly beaten
For the Filling:
5 cups diced or sliced peaches (about 7 peaches)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with Kelapo Coconut Oil.
2. For the Dough: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry blender to cut in the coconut oil, and then the egg. The dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan. Place the pan and the remainder of the dough in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
3. For the Filling: Place the diced (or sliced) peaches in a large bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix gently. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over the peaches and mix gently.
4. Spread the peach mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the peach layer.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
