Peachy Cobbler Portions

Cooking with Cat: Peachy Cobbler Portions

A healthy and delicious dessert for your toddler.

Since peaches are one of my favorite things about summer, I was so excited to try this recipe! Peaches store well in the freezer, so you can enjoy this sweet dessert year-round.  I was thrilled to see a healthy alternative to peach cobbler and couldn’t wait to give it a shot. Not only is this a great option for baby, but the perfectly portioned desserts are great for mom or dad. This recipe is a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Fiber. Check out the Nutrient Chart for an overview of essential vitamins and minerals your baby needs.





Here is what you will need:

3 cups peeled peaches, mashed
1/2 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey* (substitute for raw sugar if making for a child under 1)
1 cup crushed graham crackers
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup butter, melted

Cut Peaches.

Note* To remove skin easily, you can boil the peaches. This makes them softer and easier to mash also.


Mash peaches.


Pour applesauce in with peaches.


Add flour.



Pour in cinnamon.


Pour honey into mixture and stir.


Mix ingredients.


Pour mixture into muffin tin.
Note* Do not over flow, this recipe  should make around 9.


After this is done, you will make the topping for the cobbler.

Mix crushed graham crackers with rolled oats.

Note* to crush the graham crackers, place them in a bag that seals, and roll with a rolling pin.

Add cinnamon.


Add butter.

Add applesauce.


Mix the topping together.


Evenly scoop topping onto the top of the peach mixture in the muffin tin.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes on 350 degrees. The cobbler will be done when the peaches are bubbly and the top is golden brown.

Let cool, then serve. To store, cover the muffin tin and refrigerate.
