If you’re looking for a tasty use for dehydrated peaches, you’re in the right place! Featured today on Theresa’s Reviews is a recipe for a delicious peach cobbler. When you have dehydrated peaches to use, this recipe is simple to make. Serve it for breakfast or dessert!
Delicious Peach Cobbler With Dehydrated Peaches
After I went to Natural Products Expo East this year, Karen’s Naturals sent me one bulk pound of dehydrated organic peaches, a pound of dehydrated organic strawberries, a pound of dehydrated organic blueberries, and a pound of dehydrated mango. Although the dehydrated strawberries fit well in a Strawberry Blue Cheese Candied Pecan Salad, the dehydrated peaches seemed a bit dry to eat as a snack.
One way to use dehydrated peaches is to make a fantastic peach cobbler. You can rehydrate the peaches easily and they have a good flavor.
After rehydrating the peaches, I added the dough on top, and it tasted fantastic! For the sugar, I used the Splenda Naturals Sugar and Stevia Sweetener Blend, which was another find from Natural Products Expo East. If you’re trying to eat healthier for the new year, this is a good way to lower the calorie content of the dish.

Peach Cobbler Recipe with Dehydrated Peaches
Ingredients For Rehydrating The Peaches
2 cups of dehydrated peaches
1 cup cranberry juice
1 cup water
1 tablespoon of Splenda Naturals Sugar and Stevia Sweetener Blend
Ingredients For The Batter
1/2 cup of the Splenda Naturals Sugar and Stevia Sweetener Blend
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions For The Peach Cobbler
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease a pie pan.
- Take two cups of dehydrated peaches. Put them in a pot on the stove. Fill half the pot with cranberry juice and fill the other half with water until it covers the peaches completely. Add the tablespoon of Splenda Naturals Sugar and Stevia Sweetener Blend.
- Let the peaches come to a boil. Stir often. Then, lower to a simmer and cover while you prepare the batter.
- In a mixer, beat the sugar with the softened butter. Then, add the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Mix together. Add in the egg and the vanilla. Mix until it looks like dough.
- Use a slotted spoon to remove the peaches from the pot and put them in your pie pan. Remove the dough from the mixer with a spatula. Spread it on top of the peaches, using your hands to make it smooth.
- Bake for 35 minutes until the top has a golden brown look. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Add whipped cream, and serve!
If you have dehydrated fruit and don’t know how to use it, rehydrating it and baking it as a cobbler works well! My family loved this dish and enjoyed the delicious taste of the peaches.
