Me + Peaches: A Love Story:

It’s not a huge secret that I love peaches. I often post photos on my Instagram story of me eating peaches or just a peach pit that I had just eaten around. I love them! To me, nothing says Summer more than eating a fresh big juicy peach outside and having the juice trickle down your hands yet you don’t have a care in the world because your mind is only focused on the peach! YES. 

Question though: Do you eat the peach with the skin on or off? I personally bite into mine like an apple – I love the skin! Who knows if it’s an old wives-tale or not at this point but I remember growing up my mama always told me that the skin had the most nutrients in it when it came to any fruit or veggie. So, I always just ate the skin! For these Whole Wheat Peach Cobbler Bars, I left the skin on the peaches – but feel free to peel them! That’s just a whole lotta extra work to me ha!

But let’s talk about these Whole Wheat Peach Cobbler Bars! They’re SO DANG GOOD, Y’ALL! They have a super thick whole wheat crust on the bottom, loaded in the middle with fresh juicy peaches and then have the other half of the crust mixture sprinkled on top to make the most perfect hand held treat! I love how they aren’t overly sweet! Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour seriously gives it almost a savory taste! Without TOO much added sugar (I had to add some!), the peaches give it a perfectly ripe, light Summery taste! 

Let’s get into how to make them! 

Ingredients You Need for Whole Wheat Peach Cobbler Bars: 

  • Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Flour 
  • salted butter (because go salted or go home!)
  • fresh peaches 
  • egg
  • sugar (granulated and turbinado – or you can just use one or the other!) 
  • salt 
  • baking powder 
  • cinnamon 

How to Make Whole Wheat Peach Cobbler Bars:

Preheat the oven to 375. Take a medium size bowl and add in the whole wheat flour. To this, add the granulated sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix this to combine. Next, add 2 sticks (yes, that is 1 cup LOL!) of COLD salted butter diced into chunks! I know it’s kind of crazy but just roll with me. 

Using either a pastry cutter (which I don’t have) or your hands (which I do have!) “cut” the butter into the flour mixture. This basically requires you constantly mixing/kneading it, making sure the butter is incorporated thoroughly and evenly in the flour. It should resemble something like this once it’s done.

Once it has a “pea” like coarse crumble consistency, gently fold into a lightly beaten egg using your hands! This will make sure that the crust thickens and not fall apart like some crumble bars do. 

Now, grease a 9×13 baking dish. To the bottom, add about ⅔ of the mixture. Firmly press it down to form the crust. Set this aside.

Slice and dice your peaches! I ended up dicing mine but feel free to slice them long ways. Either way, just make sure they are fresh and not the canned kind! I used about 5-6 cups of fresh peaches, which was about 7-8 medium peaches. Add these peaches to a fresh bowl and to the bowl add ½ cup of whole wheat flour, ½ cup turbinado sugar (you can use normal, I just prefer the texture of turbinado!), 1 tbsp lemon juice and a pinch of salt and cinnamon! Mix this all together and put this directly on top of your crust.

Lastly, use the last ⅓ of your crust mixture and sprinkle it on top of the peaches! Feel free to gently press it into the peaches to make sure it sets. Bake for 45 minutes or until the top turns a golden brown and you’re all set!

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Take a medium size bowl and add in the whole wheat flour. To this, add the granulated sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix this to combine. Next, add 2 sticks of COLD salted butter diced into chunks.

  2. Using either a pastry cutter or your hands “cut” the butter into the flour mixture. This basically requires you constantly mixing/kneading it, making sure the butter is incorporated thoroughly and evenly in the flour.

  3. Once it has a “pea” like coarse crumble consistency, gently fold into a lightly beaten egg using your hands! This will make sure that the crust thickens and doesn't fall apart.

  4. Next, grease a 9x13 baking dish. To the bottom, add about ⅔ of the crust mixture. Firmly press it down to form the crust. Set this aside. 

  5. Dice the peaches into small bite size pieces. Add these peaches to a fresh bowl and also add ½ cup of whole wheat flour, the turbinado sugar (you can use normal, I just prefer the texture of turbinado!), lemon juice, salt and cinnamon! Mix this all together and put this directly on top of your crust. 

  6. Lastly, use the last ⅓ of your crust mixture and sprinkle it on top of the peaches! Feel free to gently press it into the peaches to make sure it sets. Bake for 45 minutes or until the top turns a golden brown.

  7. Let bars cool completely before you cut into them. This yields 9 large bars. Enjoy with a scoop of ice cream or plain!

  1. I grew up in the Carolinas, so South Carolina peaches hold a special place in my heart! I love ’em! What a great idea to take some of those peaches and create these cobbler bars. My grandma used to make a killer cobbler, and I’m thinking I should whip up a batch of bars to relive those days! 🙂 Well done!

    1. Hello to a fellow native Carolinian! I’m from NC – but still, nice to see ya! 🙂 Nothing beats a fresh peach cobbler…and I’m not sure if I could top Grandma’s recipe but you should definitely make these! Thank you, sir! 🙂

  2. These are melt-in-your-mouth amazing! Such a good use of a summertime fruit. Will definitely be having these again!
