Ingredients In Gluten Free Peach Cobbler
Only a few simple ingredients are needed to make this easy paleo peach cobbler.
For the Filling:
- fresh, ripe peaches
- arrowroot flour (or tapioca flour)
- cinnamon (optional)
- ground ginger (optional)
- lemon juice
- lemon zest
For the Topping:
- blanched almond flour
- arrowroot flour (or tapioca flour)
- baking soda

How to Make Gluten Free Peach Cobbler
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Make the Filling
Next, chop the peaches into small cubes. There is no need to remove the skin, but you may do so if you wish.
Place the peaches in a large mixing bowl and add the arrowroot flour. Mix until well coated. Then, add the remaining filling ingredients and mix.
Pour the filling into a 7" x 11" or 8" x 8" baking pan and set aside.
Make the Topping
Next, make the topping. To do this, first combine the almond flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the shortening, honey (or maple syrup) and vanilla to the dry ingredients and mix. I suggest mixing with a fork at first, until the shortening is in small chunks, then using your hands to mix the dough.
Once well combined, separate the topping into six pieces of nearly equal size. Roll each piece of dough into a ball and flatten. Then, place the dough on top of the filling.
Bake the Cobbler
Lastly, bake the cobbler in your preheated oven at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes. When done, the filling should be bubbling and the topping should be golden brown.
After baking, let the cobbler cool a few minutes. Then serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or a dollop of coconut cream.
Or, place the peach cobbler in the fridge overnight and enjoy the following day. I swear, the flavor is even better the day after, as the flavors seem to amplify!
Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to one week.
This low carb peach cobbler recipe serves 4-6 people, but can be doubled to serve more.
It will be a recipe you return to again and again, as there's truly no better way to enjoy baked peaches! Even your non-paleo (or vegan) guests will be sure to love this summertime dessert.
