This great tasting, fast recipe for a Whole Foods Plant Based Cobbler is out of this world! You will love it! It takes about 30 minute to put together and pop in the oven. And you will have more batter left over for future creations.
The biggest issue in vegan baking is not using eggs, and I have found a great way to get around that, I uses Xanthene Gum Powder - just a little creates a nice batter. Xanthene Gum Powder is natural, it’s made from dead cells of particular type of bacteria and those tiny cells thicken sauces and batters... takes very little thicken anything.
I’m also using Coconut Flour which is very high in fiber and does the body good. - Gluten Free
3 - Cups of Organic Coconut Flour
12 - Cups of Water
1 1/2 - Cups of Organic Agave Nectar - Which has a low glycemic index - great for blood sugar.
4 - Tablespoons of Vanilla Extract
2 - Teaspoons of Xanthene Gum Powder
2 - Cups of any kind of Organic Fresh Berries or you can use frozen
1 - Cup of Organic Banana Slices - and if you want to you can blend up 2 whole bananas with the skin on for lots of powerful nutrients.
1 - Teaspoon of Cinnamon for the top
Making the Batter - I usually make up a lot of this batter to freeze and have on hand. So put the Organic Coconut Flour into a large pot and add water, cook until it becomes the thickness of a light batter, add 1 cup of the Agave Nectar, the Vanilla and Xanthene Powder. Cook and stir until it creates a thick batter. (This will make a large batch of batter - freeze the rest for later use.)
Take a 9 x 14 inch glass, ceramic, or metal pan and add enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan.
Now layer on your berries, banana slices, and add 1/2 cup of the Agave Nectar.
Now pour on enough batter to cover the fruit.
Sprinkle with cinnamon on the top.
Pop in the oven at 425 degrees and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and bubbling.
Take out of the oven and let cool.
Serve it hot or cold, it tastes great!
It will keep in the frig for a week... and you can freeze it.
Coconut Flour is easy to digest and is gluten free, great for anyone who has a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Also it has more than 50% of your daily needs of fiber (wheat flour has less than 28% fiber), so it provides a great place in your gut for good bacteria to grow and promote probiotic bacteria that boost your immunity.
Coconut Flour also has very few carbs and can help you lose weight and it gives you that full feeling too. Coconut Flour is low in oils, less than 15%, and it contains coconut oil that is good for your body. At the same time Coconut Flour lowers cholesterol and detoxes the body.
Whole Bananas with the Peel - Banana Peels are full of lots of tryptophan that help you get a good nights rest. And Banana Peels have more soluble and insoluble fiber than what you find in the banana it self, that means Banana Peels lower your cholesterol… thus helping to prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer. In fact there are been some people who have started the process of eating Banana Peels daily and thus lowered their LDL or bad cholesterol, and total cholesterol all the way back to normal, and they also detoxed their body at the same time… and found their mood greatly enhanced.
And Banana Peels can help eliminate atherosclerosis from your body by preventing cholesterol from sticking to the walls of your arteries. And because Banana Peels are full of fiber they also fill you up and thus can help with weight loss and obesity. And because you have lots of fiber you create a wonderful place for probiotic bacteria or good bacteria to grow in your colon and thus boost your immune system. Plus it helps get rid of constipation and thus also helps detox the body and create a better immune system.
