ingredients for easy healthy dairy free gluten free vegan peach cobbler recipe

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 vegan gluten-free peach cobbler.
  • Salt: Salt is needed to give this recipe a well-rounded flavor.

Wet Ingredients

  • Juicy Peaches: You can use either canned peach slices, frozen peaches, or juicy fresh peaches – either way, this dairy free cobbler recipe will still taste delicious!
  • Milk: I used almond milk, but any type of non-dairy milk will work such as unsweetened cashew, flax, oat milk, 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!

📖 Variations

  • Sweetener: Instead of white sugar, you can try this dessert with brown sugar. For a refined sugar-free version, use maple syrup or coconut sugar.
  • Healthy Peach Cobbler: This recipe is already pretty healthy on its own since it’s lower in sugar than a traditional cobbler and only about 150 calories per serving! But to make it even healthier, I’d recommend cutting the sugar in half, using a whole wheat flour, and omitting the ice cream when serving.
  • 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 (I haven’t tested this recipe with either of these substitutions but they should work in theory!)
  • Different Fruit! This non dairy peach cobbler would taste great with some other fruits thrown in – try adding in some blueberries, blackberries, pears, apples, or strawberries!
  • Vegan Gluten Free Peach Cobbler: For a gluten-free cobbler, substitute the all-purpose flour with gluten-free oat flour or Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Baking Flour. Alternatively, you can make this recipe gluten-free by testing out different variations of this recipe with different flours such as rice, coconut, or almond flours.

🔪 Instructions

Prep Peaches: First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Next, place the sliced or drained sliced peaches in a baking dish. Combine peaches with sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Stir to combine the ingredients and set aside.

❓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.

How do I know when cobbler is done?

It can be hard to know when this dessert is done baking, since you can’t see the bottom of the biscuit topping and the filling continues to thicken once it’s cool! So here’s how you know that your cobbler is ready to come out of the oven:
1) A baking thermometer reads 200 degrees F when inserted into the center.
2) The filling is bubbly
3) The biscuits are golden brown.

How do you fix runny peach cobbler?

Before baking, make sure to add corn starch too your filling – that will help thicken it. While baking, you want the filling to heat up fully – which helps to activate the corn starch.

If your peach cobbler is too runny after baking, it might mean that the peaches used were super juicy, or that you didn’t let it sit long enough before serving. Remember to let the cobbler cool after baking so that the filling can thicken up.

How do you store dairy free peach cobbler?

To Store in the Fridge: Transfer this vegan fruit cobbler to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days.

To Store at Room Temperature: Since this dessert 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! If storing 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: Place 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 easy 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.
