A great peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts.
It not only tastes outstanding, but it’s mainly just carbohydrates and protein, which is best for cheating as high-fat meals are more readily stored as body fat than high-protein, high-carb meals.

This easy-to-make recipe is from my cookbook, The Shredded Chef, and is one I find myself coming back to again and again when I want a high-protein, healthy, homemade dessert. Pair it with some low-fat ice cream and enjoy.
