Today was a very busy day packing for our camping weekend. This time we aren’t going alone though, we’re going with Philips brother Paul and our sister-in-law Kim. Of course our boys don’t want to come anymore since Ethan says, “why would I come to sit outside and get eaten by mosquitoes?” There is some truth to that statement, I do like camping but I do not like getting eaten by mosquitoes either. How can you make yourself a less tasty target? Without using harsh chemicals on your skin. Essential oils Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary and Citronella have been used to ward off these little bugs. They say to wear lightly colored, loose fitting, long sleeved shirts and pants. It’s also important to minimize or not use any colognes or perfumes, and hair products, since these can act as additional attractants. Basically go around covered up and smelly Lol.
Anyway back today’s recipe, I got a little distracted. Peaches, who doesn’t love these sweet juicy fruits! They are fabulous by themselves when you bite into them and the juices run down your chin. They are also yummy in desserts such as this one. I didn’t want to cook them or load them with oats, flours and unrefined sugars. I wanted to keep it simple so I made this raw peach cobbler.
Don’t those peaches look absolutely delicious! Tossed in cinnamon and raw agave. It’s making my mouth drool as I’m writing this post lol.
- 1 peach thinly sliced
- Pinch of cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon raw agave
- ¼ cup walnuts
- 3 dates
- ⅛ vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon raw coconut vanilla yogurt. (Optional)
- Place walnuts in food processor and process into small pieces. Add dates and vanilla process until you have a crumble not a dough.
- Place peach slices in a small bowl. Sprinkle with cinnamon and toss in agave.
- Put some crumble in the bottom of glass then the peaches topped with crumble mixture. Top with yogurt.
