This Peach Cobbler With Almond Flour is so good; everyone will want seconds! This yummy recipe features peaches at their peak ripeness, and they caramelize as they bake. My homemade peach cobbler will become a summer staple in your home!

There is something nostalgic about this scrumptious dessert because I think it takes most of us back to being a kid again! Hot summers with barbecues and picnics surrounded by good food like peach cobbler. Fresh, ripe peaches: Peaches are naturally sweet and juicy, and when they’re at their peak ripeness during the summer, they add a burst of flavor to the cobbler. This recipe uses fresh or frozen peaches.

You will taste naturally sweet peaches, a delicious semi-sweet grain-free biscuit topping, and perfect syrupy goodness in every bite!! Not to mention, it goes amazing with a scoop of paleo ice cream!

Plus, the show stopper of this gluten free peach cobbler is this Homemade Paleo Biscuit recipe that I used for the topping.

Allergen Information:

Ingredient Notes:

  • Almond Flour—I highly suggest using almond flour instead of almond meal. Almond meal is coarser and will make your biscuit topping grainy.
  • Arrowroot Starch – Do not use arrowroot flour.
  • Ground Cinnamon – Use any variety.
  • Coconut Sugar – You can use golden or regular coconut sugar.
  • Coconut Oil – You can also use another light oil if you can’t tolerate coconuts.
  • Eggs – Use size large.
  • Honey – You can use inexpensive store-bought honey. There is no need to use expensive specialty honey.
  • Non-Dairy Milk – I used almond milk, but any type of plant-based milk is fine. If you are not paleo, regular milk is also fine.
  • Peaches – Use fresh or frozen peaches.

Substitutions/Swaps:

If you are not paleo, there are several substitutions you can make.

  • Brown sugar can be used in place of the coconut sugar.
  • Other types of starch, including potato, tapioca, and cornstarch, can be used instead of arrowroot starch.
  • You can swap butter (if you are not paleo) or another oil for the coconut oil.

Variations:

Everything about this paleo peach cobbler recipe is mouthwateringly delicious! You can follow the recipe exactly or add some flavors as you see fit. Here are some ideas to try:

  • Add a few crushed nuts to the topping. It’s so good and adds a nice little crunch.
  • Include additional fruits instead of just peaches. Pears, apricots, nectarines, and plums all make great choices.

Step-By-Step Directions:

Sliced peaches in a a bowl with coconut sugar and honey.

Step 1: Slice the peaches and put them in a bowl. Add the coconut sugar and coconut oil and mix well. Don’t forget to see the Swaps section above for other ingredient ideas.

It is optional whether you leave the peach skin on or peel the peaches. Leaving on the peel will not affect the flavor.

Recipe FAQ:

Does gluten free baking take longer?

In many cases, gluten-free baking takes a little longer than traditional recipes. The reason is that many 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.

Why is my cobbler runny?

Most of the time, when the peach cobbler turns out runny, the fruit has a lot of extra juice. When extra juicy, fruit adds tons of sweetness to the dish, leading 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 eliminate that extra liquid and shouldn’t diminish the flavors.

Can you use frozen peaches?

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.

Can you use canned peaches?

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.

  1. I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your cobbler grainy.
  2. This cobbler will keep up to 4 days in an airtight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
  3. Serve hot or cold.

SPECIAL NOTE

Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.

    1. Hi Tanisha, I haven’t tested using monk fruit sweetener. In theory it should work, but I don’t know the melting point etc. If you do try it, please let me know how it turns out.

  1. Cobbler is one of those recipes that is great all year long – but its especially amazing with fresh peaches!! I am going to make this next weekend for a get together!

  2. Oh, wow, Sandi! Peach cobbler is just the perfect dessert to paleo-ize! Peaches and almonds are naturally friends, so it makes total sense. And I love using coconut sugar in almost everything, even though I’m not palea. What a great recipe!
