What are the best gluten free flours for a pear cobbler recipe
For this healthy pear cobbler recipe, we used Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour and Tapioca Flour. Both flours are certified gluten free and non-gmo, too. The Almond Flour is made from whole, blanched almonds and for baking, I prefer to use blanched almond flour versus almond meal. It helps to make the texture light and fluffy. And the tapioca flour helps to give the edges a little bit of a crispy, browned texture.
We turn to Bob’s Red Mill for gluten free and Paleo friendly baking flours and have for many years now. You’ll see us using their flours in lots of our recipes – from sweet recipes like this pear cobbler or our gluten free homemade snickerdoodles to healthy muffins like our lemon poppy seed muffins to savory dishes like our creamy Tuscan chicken! We love the quality of their products from mill to table and the fact that they’re a local Oregon company!
What pears are best for a pear cobbler?
We love to use fresh pears – not canned. As far as which variety of fresh pears to use, take your pick! Just about any will do, so if you have a favorite go for that. We like bartlett, bosc or d’anjou. Really though, whatever is convenient and you like, go for that!
How do you make a cobbler topping?
To make the topping for this pear cobbler, you just need a mixing bowl and some basic Paleo pantry ingredients.
- Add all the dry topping ingredients to the bowl and give it a good whisk to make sure it’s all mixed well.
- Cut the ghee (or coconut oil for Vegan) into the dry mixture. This just means use a fork and mix the ghee in until the mixture is crumbly.
- Add the non-dairy milk and continue to mix until a batter forms.
- That’s it! Now it’s ready to be put on top of the pear mixture and baked!
