For those of you looking for a big batch dessert recipe to share with friends and family, I have three words for you: Pear.Cob.Ler.

This easy-to prepare gluten-free pear cobbler recipe makes enough to serve 8 to 10 people, and is a total breeze to make! The only time-consuming part is peeling and chopping the pears.

The good news is, many hands make light work, so with the help of others, this cobbler can take mere minutes to prepare!

All things considered, this pear cobbler recipe is refined sugar-free (we use coconut sugar and pure maple syrup for sweetening it), gluten-free using your favorite gluten-free flour blend (I use Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour), and easy to make dairy-free or grain-free.

Psst! This is a great one to add to your holiday feast for those who aren’t into pumpkin pie!

Let’s bake ‘er up!

How to Make Gluten-Free Pear Cobbler:

Peel, core, and chop the pears and add them to a mixing bowl along with the rest of the ingredients for the pear filling. Stir well until combined and pears begin to sweat.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Add the dry ingredients for the topping (gluten-free all-purpose flour, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, and coconut sugar) to a mixing bowl and stir well. Add the pure maple syrup, melted butter, and coconut milk and stir until a thick dough forms. Try to avoid over-mixing the dough.

Transfer the pear mixture to a large 13” x 9” casserole dish and spread into an even layer. Drop dough over the pears, forming biscuits, or smooth topping into an even layer.

Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and back another 15 to 20 minutes, until biscuits are golden-brown.

Remove cobbler from the oven. If desired, drizzle melted butter over the biscuits. Serve cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

How to This Recipe Make Dairy-Free:

If you’re vegan or eat dairy-free, simply replace the melted butter with more coconut milk or a vegan “butter” spread.

How to Make This Recipe Grain-Free (Paleo Friendly):

If you eat grain-free, you can replace the topping in this recipe with the following grain-free topping:

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt

Simply stir the above ingredients up in a mixing bowl until well-combined and drop over the pear filling. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. 

Recipe Adaptations:

  • If you aren’t gluten-free, you can use regular all-purpose flour
  • Replace the coconut milk with whole milk if you aren’t dairy-free
  • If you do cane sugar, replace the coconut sugar with brown sugar.
