Gluten-Free Peach Cobbler Recipe

I have to thank my grandmother for this delicious southern peach cobbler recipe. Every year I looked forward to the end of the summer when I would get to enjoy my grandma’s peach cobbler recipe! It was her end of the summer dessert, which was the perfect mix of peaches in their peak season, and the summer days becoming cool enough to start using the oven again.

I’ve taken my grandmother’s peach cobbler recipe and altered it a bit to make it more of my own. The fluffy, cakey crust is made using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free flour and to keep this cobbler dairy-free I use Vegan Earth Balance Original Buttery Spread. This gluten-free peach cobbler is slightly more healthy than the typical cobbler recipes but still warm, succulent, and sweet with the perfect cakey cinnamon sugar crust!

I promise this is the best gluten-free cobbler you’ve ever had—  so good that no one would even guess it’s gluten-free!

Top your peach cobbler with your favorite vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy the ultimate dessert.

Substitution Options

Gluten-Free Flours 

This recipe is completely gluten-free. I like to use Bob’s Red Mills 1:1 Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour. Any gluten-free flour with xantham gum already in the ingredients, like King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour, should work.

If you are not gluten intolerant, feel free to use regular flour, like this one.

Dairy-Free Peach Cobbler

You can use dairy-free alternative milk like coconut milk or almond milk (my preference). You can also replace the non-dairy milk with regular milk.

Cornstarch Substitute

If you do not or cannot have cornstarch, you can use tapioca or arrowroot starch to make the peach cobbler filling.

Brown Sugar Substitute

You can substitute the brown sugar for white sugar (completely your preference). If you would like to make this cobbler refined sugar free, you can replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar

Vegan Butter Substitute

I use Vegan Earth Balance: Original Buttery Spread. You can always use regular butter instead of vegan butter in this recipe. 

What peaches to use for cobbler

Fresh, canned, or frozen peaches work perfectly fine when making this gluten-free peach cobbler. If using frozen peaches, make sure the peaches are completely thawed before using.

How to blanch peaches for easy peeling:

I do not remove the skin of my peaches, but that is simply a personal preference. I know some people like to remove the skin. If you that is you, try this time-saving method to make it super easy and quick: 

 

All you need to do is cut a small “x” at the bottom of each peach. Bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil and place the peaches in the water for one minute. Use a spoon or tongs to remove the peaches and place them in a large bowl filled with cold water. After about one minute, remove the peaches from the ice bath and the peel should come off with no problem.

How to serve and store peach cobbler

  • Peach cobbler is best served warm and the day it is made. Enjoy with your favorite {dairy-free} vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. 
  • You can store the peach cobbler covered on the counter if you plan on finishing the cobbler within 24 hours. 
  • If you would like it to last longer, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

How to reheat peach cobbler

If you would like to reheat your cobbler, you can place it on an oven-safe dish and reheat at 300°F for about 10-15 minutes — which is my preferred method. You can also warm it in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds.

Ingredients

Peach Filling

  • 7 Fresh Peaches (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Crust Ingredients

  • 1.25 cup Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • 2 tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg

Instructions

Peach Filling Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x9 bakng dish lightly with butter or with cooking spray.
  • In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine the peaches, cornstarch, water, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Bring the mixture to a boil, making sure to stir frequently. Add the butter, lemon, and vanilla extract and continue to boil the mixture for 2 more minutes to allow the filling to thicken.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and transfer the mixture into the 9X9 baking dish. Set aside
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the crust. Combine the melted butter, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a measuring glass. Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. (If the mixture is too dry, add 1 tsp of almond milk at a time until the dough comes together).
  • In a small bowl, combine the coconut sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together for the cinnamon sugar topping. (you can skip this step if you'd like)
  • Spoon the dough on top of the peach mixture. It is okay if there are a few gaps. If you would like to even out the dough, coat your hands in a bit of olive oil and spread the dough as you'd like. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly on top of the dough
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden and the fruit is bubbling. Remove the cobbler from the oven and set aside to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you use canned peaches, rinse the peaches before using them. 
  • If you use frozen peaches, make sure they are thawed before using. I recommend using about 4 cups of frozen peaches. You can place them in the fridge overnight to thaw or bake them in the oven at 350°F for about 15 minutes, or until they are completely thawed.
  • Peeling the fresh peaches is not required, the skin can be left on the peaches. 
  • Slice the peaches thinly for the best results.
  • I use Bob's Red Mills 1:1 Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour for this recipe. (can sub regular flour)
  • To best measure the flour, use a small spoon and scoop the flour into a measuring cup until you get the indicated amount
  • I use Vegan Earth Butter to keep this recipe Vegan. (can sub regular butter)
  • For substitutions, read "substitute options" in the post above.
  • Peach Cobbler is best enjoyed the day it is made. You can store it covered on the counter for 24 hours or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • To rewarm the cobber, cover it with a lid or foil, place in a preheated oven of 300°F, and bake for 10-15 minutes.

I was looking for a gluten free dessert recipe to add to our Thanksgiving menu, as we have a few family members that are intolerant. After testing your recipe, it is a FOR SURE addition to our menu! Thanksgiving is a huge deal in our family, so I couldn’t show-up with just anything! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
