Ingredient Notes

(see the full list of ingredients in the printable recipe at the bottom)

filling ingredients measured and labeled

Filling

Peaches: You can use fresh or frozen peaches, peeled or unpeeled!

Monk Fruit Sweetener: Using monk fruit sweetener will keep the carbs and sugar content lower. You can also use regular sugar, just be aware this will alter the nutrition facts.

Tapioca Flour: I prefer tapioca flour, but cornstarch works just fine as well. See thickening tips in the tips & tricks section below.

Lemon Juice: You’ll only need one tablespoon so cut a small lemon in half.

Maple Syrup: You can swap this out for a keto/low sugar substitute like Lakanto Maple Syrup if you prefer.

topping ingredients measured and labeled.

Topping 

Gluten-Free Flour: Bob’s Red Mill makes a 1:1 flour that I love using for this gluten-free peach cobbler. If you have another preferred brand or something else on hand, use it!

Butter: You can use regular butter if you’re not dairy-free or sub vegan butter for vegan peach cobbler!

Coconut milk: I love using coconut milk, but feel free to use your favorite non-dairy milk of choice. Or, use regular milk if you are okay with dairy.

Recipe Step by Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Bring the sugar or monk fruit sweetener, peach slices, tapioca flour dissolved in 1/4 cup water, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
  3. Combine the topping: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; add the milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter, stirring until combined. 
  4. Add the peach filling to the coated baking pan and top with the topping. You can just dollop it on top of the peaches or spread it out with a spatula. Both ways will work. 
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is slightly browned. 
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!

Recipe FAQs

Gluten-Free Peach Cobbler | Vegan Option: FAQs

Can I make this gluten-free peach cobbler keto-friendly?

Peaches are higher in sugar than other keto-friendly fruits like berries, so while it’s difficult to make this a true keto peach cobbler, you can get it pretty low carb! Swap all sugar (including the maple syrup) for monk fruit sweetener and use almond flour instead of gluten-free flour. With these swaps, one serving becomes 198 calories and a little over 13 net carbs. While this is not “keto” it’s definitely lower carb than regular or gluten-free peach cobbler.

Why is my peach cobbler soggy?

You may have forgotten to add the cornstarch or tapioca flour! Without this thickener, the filling can get thin and watery and could make the topping feel soggier.

What can I do to thicken my peach cobbler filling?

To reach your desired thickness, add in 1/4 tsp of additional tapioca flour or cornstarch and stir for one minute before adding in any more.

Can I swap the gluten-free flour for almond flour?

You can! While I did not attempt that for this recipe, I have had great success swapping almond flour 1:1 with regular and gluten-free flour. If you try this, let me know how it turns out in the comments!
