Vegan Chocolate Peach Cobbler
I Adapted/modified this from a couple different cobbler recipes


- 4 TBS Vegan Butter (i.e. Earth Balance)
- 6-8 sliced Peaches
- 1/2 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 Cup plain rice/almond/soy/etc milk
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla (optional)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Melt the butter in a baking dish. Mix in the peaches until coated.
Sift dry ingredients in a separate mixing bowl, and mix with wet ingredients. Pour onto peaches and mix. Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with sugar, and allow to cool. Serves 4-6.
