Why we love this recipe

  • Peach Cobbler is such a classic that just the aroma of peach desserts can evoke a feeling of nostalgia and coziness. The natural sweetness and juiciness of the peaches create a deliciously flavorful filling that bursts with fruity goodness with every bite.
  • The almond flour lends a pleasant nutty flavor to the cobbler, enhancing the overall taste and complementing the sweetness of the peaches. It adds a healthy, unique twist to the traditional cobbler recipe.
  • This recipe is also naturally gluten-free. Bonus!

Ingredients

For the filling:

  • peaches – use fresh peaches or frozen peaches. Both work well.
  • pure maple syrup
  • lemon juice – this prevents browning and adds a bright, tangy flavor to the filling.
  • cornstarch – a thickening agent for the filling so it doesn’t come out thin and watery. You can also use tapioca flour.
  • vanilla extract – an essential ingredient for baked goods.

For the topping:

  • almond flour – opt for finely ground almond flour made from blanched almonds to ensure a smooth texture and a tender biscuit topping.
  • pecans – optional but really delicious!
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • coconut oil – you can also use melted butter.
  • maple syrup
  • eggs – room temperature is recommended.
  • milk – use dairy milk or plant-based for dairy-free.

Step 7

Finally, “cobble’ the topping together by connecting the scoops, and spreading them out a bit using a spatula. Leave a few spots of the peach mixture uncovered.

Pop the dish in the oven and bake until the top is golden brown and the peach mixture is bubbling.

If the topping starts to brown too quickly, cover the dish lightly with foil.

Expert tip

If you are using fresh peaches, opt for ripe ones that give off a sweet aroma and are slightly soft to the touch.

This ensures maximum flavor and juiciness.

Avoid peaches that are overly hard or have bruises.

Recipe variations

  • Add warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger to the filling, or sprinkle them into the topping batter for a warm flavor boost.
  • Infuse a boozy twist into your peach cobbler by adding a splash of bourbon to the filling. The alcohol evaporates during baking, leaving behind a subtle, rich flavor that pairs beautifully with the peaches.
  • Take advantage of the summer season by grilling the peaches before assembling the cobbler. The grilling process adds a smoky, caramelized flavor to the peaches, elevating the taste of the dessert.

Serving suggestions

  • Obviously, the best way to serve peach cobbler is warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Greek yogurt also tastes delish and is perfect for a healthy peach dessert.
  • Drizzle caramel sauce over the peach cobbler to add a rich and indulgent touch. This salted caramel sauce recipe will enhance the flavors of the dessert and adds an extra layer of sweetness.
  • Garnish the peach cobbler with a handful of fresh berries such as raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries. The vibrant colors and tangy flavors of the berries add brightness and freshness to the dessert.

FAQS

What is the difference between cobbler and fruit crisps?

While both desserts usually involve baking fruit with a sweetener, the main distinction is in the texture and composition of the toppings. Cobbler has a more substantial and cake-like topping, while a peach crisp recipe (also known as fruit crumbles) has a lighter, crunchy topping that is usually made with oats.

Can I use a different fruit in place of peaches for cobbler?

Absolutely! While the peach cobbler is traditional, you can use other fruits like apples, berries, or even a combination of fruits for your cobbler. Simply use 4 cups of fruit and follow the recipe the same way.

How can I prevent my peach cobbler from becoming too watery?

To prevent excess liquid in your peach cobbler, remember to mix the sliced peaches with a thickening agent like cornstarch or tapioca flour. These ingredients help absorb and bind the juices, resulting in a less watery filling. Also, be mindful of the ripeness of the peaches, as overly ripe ones tend to release more liquid.

Storage and reheating

Store any leftovers in an airtight container and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Reheat in either a microwave or oven.

To reheat the healthy peach cobbler in the oven – preheat the oven to 350 and place the cobbler in an oven-safe dish. Cover it with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes until warm.

    I can be rather picky about recipes that use almond flour in place of wheat flour, but this is a wonderful use! I really love the textures in this cobbler. I also appreciate that it helps me cut down on my use of white sugar.

    1. Thanks Jessica! The almond flour does work really well for this recipe. So happy you enjoyed. 🙂
