Are you ready to make this delicious paleo cobbler? If you don't need to be strictly on a paleo diet, you may enjoy my Gluten Free Peach Cobbler recipe as well.
- Almond flour - I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your biscuit topping grainy.
- Arrowroot starch - You can also use tapioca starch.
- Coconut oil - you can also use another light oil if you can't tolerate coconuts.
- Coconut sugar - If you aren't strictly paleo, you can also use brown sugar.
Recipe step by step directions:
Step 1: Slice the peaches and put them in a bowl. Add the coconut sugar and coconut oil and mix well.
It is optional whether you leave the peach skin on or peel the peaches. Leaving on the peel will not affect the flavor.
Step 2: This recipe is easiest when you make the biscuit topping in a food processor like this. Add the ingredients in and pulse to mix.
Step 3: Your dough will mix quickly and is ready to crumble on top of the peaches mixture.
Step 4: Add the peach mixture to an 8x8 dish and add the biscuit topping over the peaches. Bake at 350º F for 30 minutes.
Tips and Recipe FAQ:
In many cases, gluten free baking does take a little bit longer than traditional recipes. The reason is that many of the gluten free ingredients tend to brown a little bit faster. So, it's advisable to bake things low and slow when it comes to gluten free.
Most of the time when paleo peach cobbler turns out runny, it’s because the fruit had a lot of extra juice. When fruit is extra juicy, it adds tons of sweetness to the dish, but that can also lead to extra liquid.
The best way to combat this is to let the fruit sit in a colander and let the juice drip off for a few minutes before baking. This will get rid of that extra liquid and shouldn’t diminish the flavors.
Yes, you can use frozen peaches when making this delicious refined sugar-free cobbler. The important step you need to take to use frozen peaches is to make sure that they have been thawed and drained. As they thaw, they will have water and juices that you should remove before baking with them.
You can definitely use canned peaches, but note that peaches are canned in syrup so this recipe will not be paleo if you use them. Be sure to put the canned peaches into a colander so all of the extra juice drains out.
This paleo peach cobbler will keep up to 4 days in your refrigerator. Be sure to store it in an air-tight container.
Everything about this peach cobbler recipe is mouthwateringly delicious! You can follow the recipe exactly or add in some additional flavors as you see fit. Here are some ideas to try:
- Sprinkle the top with a cinnamon/sugar mixture if you aren’t worried about extra sugar. And if you don’t want sugar, skip it and just use cinnamon. So yummy!
- Add a few crushed nuts to the topping. It’s so good and adds a nice little crunch.
- Use some additional fruits instead of just peaches. Pears, apricots, nectarines, and plums all make great choices.
