ingredients for vegan peach cobbler

Dry Ingredients

  • Sugar: Granulated white sugar for a subtle addition of caramelized sweetness in the filling of the casserole.
  • Cornstarch: A thickening agent for the peach filling.
  • Cinnamon: Ground cinnamon for a warm and inviting dessert that is comforting and delicious.
  • Flour: All-purpose flour is needed for the dough on top of the peach filling. You can use different types of flours, too — whole wheat flour, almond flour, oat flour, rice flour, or even coconut flour could work. You can also use a gluten-free flour blend if needed!
  • Baking powder: Make sure to use gluten-free baking powder if you’re making gluten-free peach cobbler.
  • Salt: Salt is needed to give this recipe a well-rounded flavor.

Wet Ingredients

  • Peaches: You can use either canned peach slices or juicy fresh peaches that are whole– either way, this cobbler will still taste delicious!
  • Milk: I used almond milk, but any type of non-dairy milk will work such as cashew, flax, coconut milk, or soy milk.
  • Butter: Vegan butter at room temperature for a golden and buttery topping on top of the peaches. Alternatively, you can try hardened coconut oil.
  • Ice cream: Optional, but vanilla dairy-free ice cream is wonderful with this vegan cobbler!

❓Recipe FAQs

What’s the main difference between peach pie and peach cobbler?

Peach pie comes with a crust and sometimes even a top layer, like a lattice crust. Peach cobbler, on the other hand, comes as more like a crumble with a buttery baked dough on top, and the result ends up being warm, gooey, and crumbly.

Can you leave peach cobbler out overnight?

Since this vegan peach cobbler has no unbaked eggs or dairy, it should be fine left out overnight and up to 24 hours stored in an airtight container. After that, you will want to refrigerate it!

How do you fix runny peach cobbler?

The cornstarch in this recipe should thicken the peach cobbler. If not, add a little more corn starch.

📖 Variations

  • Flour: For a gluten-free cobbler, substitute the all-purpose flour with gluten-free oat flour. Alternatively, you can test out different variations of this recipe with different flours such as rice, coconut, or almond flours.
  • Sweetener: Instead of white sugar, you can try this cobbler with brown sugar. For a refined sugar-free version, use maple syrup or coconut sugar. You can also reduce the sugar by half if you want a less-sweet dessert.
  • Flavor: Try adding a little bit of vanilla extract, almond extract, or lemon juice.
  • Thickener: Instead of cornstarch, you can try to use xanthan gum or tapioca starch.

🧊 How to Store

  • How to Store in the Fridge: Transfer the peach cobbler to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days.
  • To Store at Room Temperature: If storing the peach cobbler at room temperature, place the vegan cobbler in a storage container and leave it out on the counter for up to 1-2 days before transferring to the refrigerator.
  • How to Freeze: If freezing this peach cobbler, place the cobbler in an airtight container and freeze for up to one month. Defrost in the fridge overnight, then warm in the oven or microwave.

💭 Expert Tips

  • Canned peaches tend to be sweeter than fresh peaches, so if you are using canned peaches, feel free to reduce the amount of sugar in this vegan peach cobbler recipe.
  • Don’t peel your peaches if you are using fresh peaches! The skin will cook down and will become super soft, and adds a nice depth of flavor to this dish.
  • Keep some of the canned juice if desired as it will provide extra moisture and sweetness in the recipe.
