Can you have dessert on a SOS Free food plan? (SOS Free stands for salt, oil & sugar free.) Yes you can! Fruit is so amazing and yes we do enjoy it plain and simple right from Mother Nature. However, sometimes you just want something that feels and looks more like a traditional dessert. We still use fruit because of it’s natural sweetness and combine it with some other healthy yet delicious ingredients to make something extra special. This Cherry Peach Cobbler satisfies our desire for a scrumptious dessert without derailing our health and weight goals. Here is more good news – you can even enjoy this when you are trying to lose weight on a whole food plant based lifestyle. How fabulous is that?
It’s scrumptious served hot or cold. You can make banana soft serve for an al a mode presentation – sometimes we get fancy like that!
We hope you enjoy the video! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
Cherry Peach Cobbler – No Added Sugar
10 ounces peaches – fresh or frozen
2 cups sweet dark cherries, pitted – fresh or frozen
2 teaspoons of your favorite flavored balsamic vinegar
1 cup of my Quinoa Banana Oat Muffin Mix see the ingredients listed below this recipe.
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg or to taste
1 very ripe banana (6 ounces with peel)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce or date paste if you want it sweeter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Divide fruit into two oven safe baking dishes. Drizzle a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar over each dish of fruit, set aside while making the topping. In a medium size bowl mash the banana with a fork, stir in the unsweetened applesauce or date paste if you want it to be sweeter. Add 1 cup of the Quinoa Banana Oat Muffin Mix and the additional spices. Stir until well combined. Divide topping evenly over the two dishes. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until topping is baked all the way through and the top is golden brown.
If you want to make a pan of this cobbler I would double the recipe for an 8-9 inch pan. Use any combination of fruit that you prefer.

1/2 cup prewashed quinoa -dry – uncooked ground into a powder – see Quinoa Banan Oat Muffin video – if you can’t find prewashed quinoa try using ground millet instead or quinoa flakes or quinoa flour or oat flour if you use it.
2 cups Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats – if you don’t have quick cooking steel cut oats just process regular steel cut oats a little bit in your food processor. Use Certified gluten free oats to make this a gluten free dessert.
2 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats – use certified gluten free oats to make this gluten free.
1/4 cup ground golden flaxseed meal
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg – freshly ground is best
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all the dry ingredients in a container and stir well. It makes about 5 cups of dry muffin mix. Go ahead and make extra muffin mixes while you have all the ingredients out. I just set out my containers and fill them assembly style. With this mix you can make the Quinoa Banana Oat Muffins, Oat – Jam – Jammie Bars and Sweet Pea’s Mini Jammies!
