Why you’ll love this recipe!
I've always been a big peach fan. My favorite are nectarines, but peaches are my go-to option when choosing which to bake with. They have a super thin peel and delicious, butter-like interior when cooked. I felt inspired to make this easy gluten free cobbler recipe with frozen peaches because it's quite different than my usual dessert go-to recipes & it seemed like an exciting new adventure!
Some flourless peach cobblers are made by making a peach layer & crumble, while other cobblers (such as my version) are made by layered melted butter with a cake-like batter & cooked peaches into a pan -- both are then baked. Both recipe variations are delicious in their own unique way! This recipe is inspired by Southern Peach Cobbler with frozen peaches & made gluten free.
I love this recipe so much and I think you will too because:
- It is packed with delicious, juicy fresh or frozen peaches
- It comes together in only 30 minutes!
- This recipe consists of only 10 simple ingredients
Ingredients for the gluten free peach cobbler
The ingredients in this cobbler are super straight forward. There are three components to this gluten free cobbler recipe: the butter, the batter & the peaches! Let's run through a bit about each of these layers to the cobbler.
The Butter: Rather than greasing the baking dish with a baking spray, this recipe opts for loads of butter that is carefully melted in the oven before adding the batter. This butter will end up seeping into the gluten free peach cobbler filling to create a super luscious texture.
The Batter: Because there is a ton of butter in the pan, there is no need for any oil in the batter. The batter simply consists of Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour, granulated sugar, vanilla, baking powder, salt and oat milk. It's that simple! Everything gets whisked in a bowl until thickened.
The Peaches: When I bake lately, I like to cut corners when possible. In this case, I've made both our lives easier by using frozen peaches. Of course, you can use fresh peaches as well, but by using frozen peaches there is no worrying about whether they're in season if you'd like to make this recipe all year round plus there is no need to chop the peaches.
This recipe for gluten free peach cobbler is flexible and some ingredients can be swapped. Here are some easy ingredient swaps that work perfectly well in this recipe:
- Use you're favorite fruit! Fruit cobblers are delicious with pretty much any fruit, so feel free to opt for a seasonal fruit or whatever fruit you are craving.
- Depending on you're taste, use more or less sugar. If you have a major sweet tooth, I recommend using the amount of sugar listed in the recipe or even a little bit more for some extra sweetness, however, if you prefer you're peach cobbler on the tangier side, you can use slightly less sugar than the recipe calls for, or add a bit more lemon juice.
- Make mini gluten free peach cobblers. Trade in your large baking dish for individual ramekins if you want to make individual cobblers. This is a wonderful idea for a dinner party or potluck.

Gluten Free Peach Cobbler (with Frozen Peaches)
- 3, 10 ounce bags frozen peaches
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch or cornstarch
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a 9x13 baking dish. Set aside.
- Combine frozen peaches, sugar and lemon juice in a medium saucepan. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring often, about 8 minutes, until peaches have softened.
- Mix the arrowroot or cornstarch into the peaches and cook for another 3-5 minutes, bringing to a simmer. Then, turn off the heat & set aside.
- Place the butter cubes into the baking dish and place in the oven for 2-4 minutes or until butter is completely melted. Remove from and allow to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together the sugar, vanilla, gluten free flour, baking powder, and salt. Then, whisk in the oat milk until a thick batter is formed.
- Pour the batter into the pan of melted butter and carefully spread into an even layer. Don’t stir the batter with the butter!
- Use a spoon to carefully place the cooked peaches over the batter so they’re spread out evenly across the pan.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool at least 30 minutes to allow the butter to soak into the cakey parts of the cobbler.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream & enjoy!
- Serve cobbler with vanilla ice cream or your favorite ice cream flavor of choice!
- I recommend letting the cobbler cook at least 30 minutes otherwise it can taste too buttery. The butter needs time to set and sink into the peaches/batter areas as it cools. It sounds funny, but trust me that it makes a huge difference!
- You can opt to use fresh peaches instead if they're in season. The softer the better, as long as they're fresh, of course!
- This cobbler can be stored covered in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. Reheat in the oven before serving for best results.
