Gluten-free and vegan peach cobbler made with gluten-free flour, oats, and pure maple syrup. A simple-to-prepare summer dessert that can 200% be eaten for breakfast. Recipe includes a grain-free paleo version, too!
You can probably surmise from the Paleo Strawberry Crumble, Paleo Raspberry Crumble, Paleo Blackberry Cobbler and the Paleo Cherry Crumble I posted in years passed that I’m mega bonkers into the fruit cobbler/crumble/crisp.
Here are the..
- Gluten-free and vegan
- Requires very few ingredients!
- Quick and easy to prepare
- Tastes buttery but is butter-free
- Includes a nice crispy biscuit cobbler topping that is entirely gluten-free and dairy-free
- You’d never know it wasn’t made with standard cane sugar, butter, and flour
The goo factor here. My gah it’s the darndest! The roasting process brings out a great deal of flavor in fruit, and I love the self-caramelizing factor that comes with fruit due to its natural sugars.
My favorite way of enjoying a good seasonal fruit crisp is with a hefty scoop of coconut milk ice cream. My 3-Ingredient No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream is also bangarang (for non-vegan folks!)
How to Make Vegan Peach Cobbler:
Making this gluten-free peach cobbler is super simple and only requires three steps and so little time or effort.
1.) Make the Peach Filling:
To make the peach cobbler filling, gently toss fresh peaches, pure maple syrup and a small amount of gluten-free flour in a mixing bowl. Transfer it to a 8″ x 8″ casserole dish (or one of similar size).
2.) Prepare the Biscuit Cobbler Topping:
Just stir up all the ingredients for the topping in a mixing bowl, and you’re DONE! You can use the same bowl you used to toss together the peach filling. The topping is so silly simple to prepare, you’ll want to whip it up for every single crisp/crumble ever.
I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, along with their Gluten-Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats for the topping.
3.) Make the Cobbler:
Scoop portions of the cobbler topping over the peach filling in the casserole dish. You don’t have to be perfect about this! I simply spoon it over haphazardly in a somewhat even layer.
Bake the cobbler until the topping is golden delicious and you’re in for a real wild ride!
How to Make Grain-Free Peach Cobbler:
If you follow a grain-free diet and prefer using almond flour for the topping, no sweat! You’ll follow all the same instructions in this recipe, but use the following ingredients for a grain-free topping:
Grain-Free Cobbler Topping (Paleo Version):
1 cup Super Fine Almond Flour
3 Tbsp coconut oil melted
4 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp pure almond extract optional
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
Simply stir it all up in a mixing bowl and proceed as normal!
This vegan peach cobbler vanished within 3 hours of its coming to fruition (get it? fruition? I know, I know…you’ve had better..), as it was a prep-shoot-devour situation.
The man stallion, one of my girlfriends, and I plowed through the entire crisp like underfed teenagers with scoops of vanilla coconut milk ice cream.
While the recipe can easily feed 4, it ended up feeding 3…which means if you and your family/friends have a hefty sweet tooth, you could consider doubling the recipe.
As in, double the recipe…you’ll want leftovers for breakfast. Just trust.

- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

After canning peach jam, I decided to try this recipe with leftover peaches. It turned out real well. Due to food allergies, I used my own gluten free flour mix but otherwise followed the recipe. I cannot eat dairy so Instead of ice cream with the crisp, I drizzled a little bit of warm coconut milk over the crisp. It was yummy. I will make this recipe again. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I am wondering though, can this recipe be made with canned peaches when fresh are not in season?

So happy to hear you enjoy the recipe! I imagine it will work great with canned peaches, but I haven't tried it myself. xoxo

Can I use coconut flour?
Wednesday 20th of July 2022
Hi Shirley! The whole recipe for the cobbler topping would need to change if you substituted with coconut flour, as coconut flour absorbs four times the amount of liquid than any other flour and often requires eggs to keep it from being overly dense. I would try googling a cobbler recipe that uses coconut flour for the best result! xoxo

Hello! Sounds like a yummy recipe. I am interested in making a single serving with 1 peace. Do you have insight into how much to use in terms of the rest of the ingredients?
Sunday 20th of June 2021
I haven't tried the recipe scaled down, but I would make 1/6 of the topping in order to make it a single-serve dessert :) Let me know how it turns out! xoxo

Would oat flour be sufficient? Just happens to be what I have on hand at the moment. Thanks

Hi there! I believe oat flour will work just fine. The topping may be more dense, but it should still be tasty. Without having tested it, I can't be sure, but you should be able to do a 1:1 sub without issues.
