Protein Peach Cobbler

This peach cobbler only uses 4 ingredients and is super quick to throw together for a weeknight treat. It is also gluten free!

I got the idea for this recipe from the “diet soda hack” cobblers I have seen on Pinterest. I bought a few of the Lil Buff Protein mixes and have been experimenting with using them in different desserts. These mixes do contain whey protein but Lil Buff is coming out with a vegan version soon that I am excited to try! When I am able to get some of the new vegan mixes I will try this recipe again 🙂

Peach Cobbler before adding the diet soda and cinnamon

All you need are peaches(fresh or canned will work), diet soda(I used Zevia Cream soda), Lil Buff Protein Cake Mix(I used Fit-Fetti), and cinnamon. I think this would also be good with the gingerbread cake mix flavor but I haven’t tried it yet.

I topped my cobbler with a scoop of Vanilla Maple Dairy Free Halo Top which added 95 calories, but the total calories were still under 250 which I think is really good for a dessert! It also had a total of almost 15g of protein.

  1. Chop up peaches into small pieces, you do not need to remove the skin but you do need to remove the pit
  2. Place peaches in a medium size ramekin
  3. Sprinkle cake mix over the top of the peaches evenly and press down so it is in the crevices, sprinkle cinnamon on top
  4. Pour about 1/2 cup of diet soda over the top, do this slowly so it doesn’t overflow
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top again if desired
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes
  7. Let cool slightly and top with ice cream/whipped cream etc., serve while still warm
