This paleo peach cobbler or crumble is out of this world good! With the sweetness of peaches, hints of cinnamon and the perfect crust made with almond flour, coconut flour and coconut sugar you will love how easy it is to make. It’s also vegan, dairy-free and gluten free!
Why you will love this recipe:
- This cobbler is the perfect summer dessert. It is out of this world good! The peaches caramelize when cooking to make them taste extra special. And with hints of cinnamon the peach filling is just so good!
- The crust is the perfect texture and is made with almond flour, coconut flour and tapioca flour.
- In addition to being paleo this dessert is egg-free, dairy-free, vegan, and gluten free too!
- It’s really easy to make and makes great leftovers.
- Because this cobbler recipe is refined sugar free it’s a healthy dessert that is satisfying enough to even eat for breakfast.
Ingredients, substitutions and equipment:
- Fresh peaches – the star of this recipe! You want to use fresh and not frozen peaches for this cobbler for best results.
- Coconut sugar – my favourite granulated natural sweetener!
- Tapioca flour – to help thicken the berry mixture and give the crust the perfect texture.
- Ground cinnamon – this gives the peaches the perfect taste!
- Almond flour – to make the perfect grain free crust. You could swap this for cashew flour.
- Coconut flour – to give the crust the perfect crispness. I don’t recommend trying to swap this with any other flours.
- Baking soda – to help give the crust the perfect texture. I recommend using aluminum free baking soda.
- Sea salt – to help enhance all the flavours of this dessert.
- Vanilla extract – to help enhance the flavour of the dish.
- Coconut milk – to keep this dish dairy free. You could swap this for another dairy free milk such as cashew milk or almond milk.
- An 8″ x 8″ glass baking dish – glass bakeware is the safest type of bakeware (read more about that here).
How to make this recipe:
Step one: first, preheat your oven to 375F. Then add the ingredients for the peach layer into an 8″ x 8″ glass baking dish and blend well until everything is combined.
Step two: place the peach mixture in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. While the peaches are baking, make the crust.
Step three: to make the crust, place all the ingredients into a bowl and stir well to combine. After the peach layer has finished baking, form the crust into multiple flat shapes (see photo) and place on top of the peach layer, leaving a few spots uncovered to let the peach layer bubble as needed.
Step four: place the dish back into the oven and cook for an additional 25-30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the peaches are bubbling.
Variations and add ins:
- If you are not on the paleo diet and tolerate grains, you can substitute corn starch for the tapioca starch.
- Instead of coconut milk you can use a nut milk such as almond milk or cashew milk.
- For a different appearance, roll out the crust and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes such as stars or hearts.
- If you want to cover the cobbler completely in crust, roll out the dough and lay it on top. Just be sure to poke a couple holes in the dough to allow the peaches to seep through.
- For a slightly different flavour use nectarines instead of peaches to make a paleo nectarine cobbler.
- Do not try swapping different flours for the crust. I cannot guarantee that any substitutions will work!
- Store this dish in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
- My Coconut Whipped Cream is perfect for topping this dessert!
- Dairy free vanilla ice cream is another great option.
- Dairy free yogurt also tastes great.
Frequently asked questions:
What is the difference between peach crisp and cobbler?
While both crisps and cobblers are fruit desserts that can be made in the oven in a baking dish, or in a stovetop skillet, cobblers and crisps are slightly different – cobblers have a dense biscuit dough type topping, while crisps use oats and a streusel type topping, making them lighter in texture.
How do you thicken fruit for cobbler?
To thicken fruit for cobbler you will need to add a thickening agent such as corn starch or tapioca starch. You will also want to ensure that the filling gets bubbling hot when baking to help it thicken.
Are frozen or canned peaches better for cobbler?
To make peach cobbler you are best off using fresh peaches. However, if you don’t have any fresh peaches you can use canned peaches or frozen peaches instead. You will just just need to thaw the frozen peaches before cooking them.
