This Gluten Free Vegan Peach Cobbler is so easy and delicious! The natural sugars in peaches combined with this gluten free shortbread crust is seriously to die for. This recipe comes together so fast and is thrown right into the oven. Out comes this delectable dessert!
I love a warm, fruity dessert topped with some coconut whipped cream – your family will too! This recipe was inspired by Georgia Peach truck. Every Summer I order 50 pounds of peaches from them. The peaches are beyond sweet and oh my gosh they are so good. I always make a batch of this Peach Cobbler as soon as my order arrives. When I make this I also love to make my Peach Freeze Pops, Peach Basil Mocktails, and my go to Banana Peach Smoothie.

- Peaches– These make a great, fruity dessert! The other ingredients in the peach filling make these extra sweet and delicious. When picking peaches, pick one that is slightly soft and has some golden-hues to it. You can also use frozen peaches here, but be sure to allow them to fully defrost prior to baking so they aren’t holding on to extra moisture.
- Coconut Sugar– A great natural, plant-based sweetener. Coconut sugar is great for baking.
- Arrowroot– A thickening agent. This helps the peach filling become thick, as well as holds the ingredients together for the cobbler topping.
- Lemon juice & cinnamon– Brightens the flavors of the peach filling.
- Cassava flour– The base of the cobbler topping. I highly recommend Otto’s Cassava Flour. It is the only kind I use; it’s the best I’ve found. Cassava flour creates a nice, crispy topping.
- Baking powder, coconut oil, coconut milk, vanilla extract- This will create the best cobbler topping when combined with the cassava flour. It’s sweet, crumbly, and crispy – all the best qualities of a cobbler.

Step by Step Instructions
When picking fresh peaches, you want them to be semi-soft. Too hard means that they are not ready. There should also be some golden-hues to the peach. Peaches that have white hues are not ready.
Yes! If you choose to use frozen peaches, be sure that they are fully defrosted prior to using so that they don’t hold onto extra moisture.
If you are using a baking dish larger than 8×8, keep in mind that it may change the baking time.
While you can use canned, I prefer fresh! Canned peaches often times are loaded with sugar and other processed ingredients. My biggest suggestion is to just be mindful if you do chose canned, be sure to read the ingredients!
Crispy recipes (like my blueberry apple crisp) have oats in them. Cobblers on the other hand are made from flour.
- Tip #1: To prevent the cobbler from browning too much, you can loosely cover it with foil after about 20 minutes.
- Tip #2: I love serving this warm topped with vegan cool whip.
- Tip #3: Be sure to choose peaches that are semi-soft with golden-hues so that the finished product is flavorful.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
- To reheat in the air fryer, cook at 350 degrees F for 3-5 minutes.
- To reheat in the oven, cook at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
