  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Mix the cherries, honey, xanthan gum and lemon juice.

  2. Pour the mixture into a 2-3 quart baking dish.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix the almond meal and baking powder together. Add the stevia, melted coconut oil and eggs.

  4. Mix the ingredients until moist.

  5. Spread the mixture over the cobbler, or drop in dollops.

  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Serve with sugar-free whipped cream or sugar-free vanilla ice cream, if desired. (Not included in the nutritional facts)

If the reason for using almond flour is to avoid gluten, you can use buckwheat as it is not a cereal, despite its name.

bphopeful1, xanthan gum is a non-carb thickner. It take very little to thicken any thing. I would guess the cobbler would be thin without it. It is available i health food stores or on line it isn't really expensive and if you put it in jar it last for years! I'm going to try this recipe
