Low-Fat Semi-Ghetto Peach Cobbler

This peach cobbler is semi-ghetto for a couple of reasons: #1) It’s partially made in the microwave. I’m really ok with this, as I hardly ever use my microwave in regular cooking and I am not, by any means, a baking enthusiast. Nuke it up, I say. #2) It’s low-fat. In it of itself, that does not make something ghetto, but something tells me that peach cobbler (or any dessert, really), should not be very good for you. But this is!

serves 5-6 / adapted from this recipe / 4 ww pts

Here’s what I used:

For the filling:

  • 4 cups fresh peaches (I actually used canned because peaches are out of season….and I bought a HUGE awesome can of them at Costco. This recipe is better with fresh, for sure, but…Just make sure to rinse them if they’re canned in syrup).
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup water

For the topping:

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup oat bran
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup non fat buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons sugar & 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, combined

Here’s what I did:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In 2-quart casserole dish, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in water.
  3. Microwave on high, uncovered, for 1 minute and 30 seconds, until thick & bubbly.
  4. Add peaches, cover with saran wrap, and microwave for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, make the topping. Mix the dry ingredients (flour through baking soda) together with a whisk.
  6. Add the buttermilk and stir until well combined.
  7. Pour on top of the hot peaches and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until biscuits are cooked through.

It is mandatory to serve this with Ben & Jerry’s vanilla fro-yo. Stick your face in it.
