Gluten-Free Apple Cobbler

-->
Apple Cobbler-- every bit as sweet and tasty as it looks here-- none of that fake-y GF flavour/texture
There are a few of us who are eating gluten-free at our Church and today's recipe, absolutely delectable finger-lickin good gluten-free apple cobbler is a great contribution to that-- or just as a family treat.  The trick will be to keep it away from all the people who can indulge in wheat desserts (like brownies, etc.) so that the gluten-free eaters at least get a chunk to sample.

6 medium/ 10 small organic Apples
1/2 C. Sugar
4 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 C. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1 1/2 C. Rice flour**
1/2 C. Coconut Flour
2 C. organic Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt (the stuff with 80+ minerals)
2 C. Rice milk, Nut Milk, or regular milk milk

Core, peel and slice apples.  Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over them. Mix well to cover all the apples.

Process the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl. Add milk and whisk until well mixed. (Confession: I used my food processor)

Use organic cane sugar- you'll taste the diff.
Cut coconut oil into a baking dish (I used a long glass cake pan) and place in a 350 degree (about 325 for glass) preheated oven until hot and oil is melted. (careful not to let it scorch). NO KIDS OR PETS IN KITCHEN. Carefully pull pan out of the oven and place on cutting board on counter, pouring the batter into the pan. Lay in the apple slices pressing into the batter. Jumble those apple slices up, as long as they are pressed into the better it doesn't matter how they are spaced!   Pour the juice created in the bowl of apples over top.

Return to the oven for 50-60 minutes.  After 45 minutes it is a good idea to insert a toothpick about every 5 minutes-- if it comes out clean, the cobbler is ready to come out into the world!

**I made my own rice flour in the Vitamix with long grain brown basmati rice that our neice brought here on a visit last summer... must say that I am happy with that experiment-- and will save a whack on rice flour!
I started out laying the apples slices like this and later just jammed them in sideways!
