Peachberry Cobbler

 
Peachberry Cobbler

So as of today I am officially on day 8 of my whole 30 journey. I have to say that I honestly feel great. I have been preparing my food for the week ahead of time and that is what is making it easy. On Saturdays I will make a bunch of grilled chicken, grilled onions, squash, and hamburger patties. This way, if I am hungry, I always have something prepared in the fridge to grab.
This has been a great weekend. Friday night my husband and I attended the opening of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in Natchitoches, La( home of the movie Steel Magnolia). It was a great experience and to top it off, I got to meet Shaq (picture to follow). I've never actually met anyone quite as large as him, and he couldn't have been nicer.
Last night some friends came over to eat dinner. We enjoyed grilled steaks and shrimp, spinach salad, and oven roasted broccoli and cauliflower. The real treat of the evening though is that my friend Janelle brought over a whole30 approved dessert that she made up and made just for me since I'm the only one doing whole30. It was a perfect Saturday night with good food and good friends.

To make the cobbler:
2 cups diced peaches- diced small (about 3 peaches)
1 cup of blackberries
3 dates
1/4 cup full fat canned coconut milk
1 tablespoon ghee
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup crushed macadamia nuts
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup crushed pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Soak dates in water for 30 minutes to soften
3. While the dates are soaking, place nuts on a parchment paper lined baking tray and toast for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Mix 1 tsp cinnamon with diced peaches and blackberries and place in an 8x8 baking dish. Press gently to flatten and release some of the juices
5. Remove pits from the soaked dates and place in a food processor with coconut milk and ghee until it is smooth .
6. Now mix the date mixture with the toasted nuts until its evenly coated.
7. Place date mixture on top of the fruit mixture and bake for 20-30 minutes.
