Summertime Peach Cobbler without heating up the kitchen

In the summertime, I like to make dishes that don't heat up the kitchen, so here is a raw peach cobbler:

Serves 6-8

4 fresh organic peaches, with seeds removed, sliced thin
1/2 C fresh dates, pitted or figs (for extra calcium)
1/2 C fresh pineapple chunks
2 T honey or agave nectar
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. ground ginger or 2 T. crystallized ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt or 1 tsp. dulse

1 1/2 C pecans
1 T coconut butter
1/4 C fresh dates, pitted or figs (for extra calcium)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of sea salt or 1 tsp. dulse

Place sliced peaches in a medium-sized bowl (or mix directly in your cobbler pan) and set to one side. Process remaining filling ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour over peaches and gently toss to coat well. Place mixture in cobbler dish.

To make the topping, place all topping ingredients in a food processor and blend until well-combined, with the nuts finely chopped. Sprinkle over peaches and enjoy!
