Vegan Peach Cobbler

Whoa, can you believe it, Vegan Peach Cobbler that is also gluten free, and dairy free?  When you are gluten free, delicious desserts like peach cobbler and pie are generally off limits.  I have never gone to a restaurant that offered gluten free cobbler or pie,  because of course, the gluten is what makes it gooey and yummy. Additionally, traditional cobblers and pies have a lot of sugar too, and that is not a good option.  It is just another food that I have given up in the quest for good health through healthy eating.  I am always pleasantly surprised when I find something so simple and delicious that can fill the void for a treat that was previously off limits.  This recipe was inspired by  @glutenfreepalate and her recipe for Berry Pie in a Jar.
