This gluten-free peach cobbler is one of those desserts that just feels like summer. It’s made with fresh market peaches, is lightly sweetened, and has an easy-to-make gluten-free biscuit topping.
Why you’ll love this recipe
- Packed with fresh peaches. The peaches are the star of this dish and go perfectly with the almond flour biscuit crust.
- Easy-to-make. The biscuit topping is easy to make and can be made in one bowl. No chopping cold butter into it or anything complicated.

- Customizable for different diets. This recipe is gluten-free and can easily be made vegan by swapping out the butter for vegan butter.
Peach cobbler with almond flour ingredients
- Peaches: for the best taste make sure to use fresh peaches in this recipe.
- Coconut sugar: you can substitute with cane sugar, brown sugar or a sticky sweetener like maple syrup or honey.
- Gluten-free flour: I like to use a 1-1 gluten-free flour blend like this one. This means the flour can be substituted for regular flour exactly. (ex: 1 cup of regular flour can be substituted with 1 cup of this gluten-free flour.)
- Almond flour: use almond flour, not almond meal for best results. Almond flour is more finely ground and will result in a softer biscuit crust.
- Butter: this is the key ingredient to a good biscuit! Butter works best rather than oil.
- Milk: or any type of milk will work. Regular milk or dairy-free milk like almond milk or oat milk.
- Baking powder: this is important to add to the biscuit to help it rise and become nice and fluffy.
How to make a gluten-free peach cobbler
Slice the peaches and mix together with the nutmeg and coconut sugar. Then add them to a baking dish.
Make the gluten-free cobbler topping by combining the topping ingredients together in a bowl. Use a spoon and place clumps of the topping over the peaches.
Bake in the oven at 375 degrees F for about 50 minutes to an hour until the topping is browned and crispy.
How to store leftovers
Fridge: Store any leftovers of this peach cobbler in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat the peach cobbler in the microwave or in the oven until warmed through.
Freezer: to freeze the peach cobbler, let it cool completely, then cover well with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for up to 2 months. Let thaw on the countertop them place in the oven to cook until warmed through.
The difference between a peach crisp and peach cobbler
So what is the difference between these two desserts?
- Peach crisp: Peach crisp is made with a topping that is made of oats mixed with sugar and butter that is crumbled up on top of the peaches. It’s more of a granola type of topping.
- Peach cobbler: Peach cobbler is made with a biscuit topping, which is generally made from flour and butter and then spread over the top of the peaches. Both are delicious, though crisps are generally a bit easier to throw together.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Leave the skin on the peaches. No need to peel them first. This will save time and add more flavour and texture to the cobbler.
- If your peaches are really juicy, add 1 tbsp of cornstarch to the sliced peaches to prevent a runny cobbler.
- Adding a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon to the peaches will really compliment the flavour of the peaches.
- Add the cobbler topping in clumps on top of the peaches. The topping will spread out as the cobbler bakes, so there’s no need to spread it on top yourself.
- Bake right before serving for the best-tasting cobbler. Store any leftovers covered in the fridge.
Peach cobbler FAQ
A cobbler is a dessert made by adding fruit to a large baking dish and covering it with a biscuit topping. A cobbler is different from a crisp or a crumble.
There are a couple of different ways you can cut peaches for a cobbler. You can cut them into small cubes, or you can simply cut the peaches into slices (like pictured above) for more texture.
If you cant find fresh peaches then you can substitute them with canned peaches. Just keep in mind that canned peaches are already sweetened and cooked, so you may want to skip out on adding any sugar to them and the crumble will have a much softer texture compared to using fresh peaches.

I made this with nectarine. It was amazing and it’s vanilla ice cream. Great way to use lots of peaches or nectarine. I had to add more almond flour to make it the right consistency. Hard to read that amount of wheat flour substitute. I used Pamela’s. All you in Kingsburg – this is a great one!!
Hi Julie! So glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Since going gluten free I don’t buy goodies/desserts much anymore.
We went to our local farmers market and I got some peaches and scoured Pinterest for a recipe. This once came up and I immediately got to baking! I’m not the best baker but can follow a recipe 😜
This came out great! I used the vegan butter and topped it with a scoop of vegan ice cream. 10/10. Will make again!
So happy you enjoyed it Janine 🙂
This looks so yummy! I’m making it today. Hoping it won’t affect flavor if I use Swerve instead of coconut sugar, since I don’t have that.
Hope the recipe turned out well for you Karen using Swerve!
This looks incredible!
Do you come up with these recipes yourself?
Thank you very much, yes I do!
Wowww this looks delicious! I’m going to try it soon.
Just one question: could I substitute the gluten-free flower blend for any regular flower or oat flower?
Thank you so much! Hope you enjoy! And yes you can use regular flour or oat flour 🙂
