Ingredients & Substitutions

Here is everything you need to make the best-tasting gluten-free peach cobbler w/ almond butter caramel sauce recipe:

Peaches: If you don’t have fresh or frozen peaches, you can use other fruits like nectarines, apricots, or a combination of berries (e.g., blueberries, raspberries).

Tapioca Flour: Substitute tapioca flour with arrowroot flour, cornstarch, or potato starch for thickening the fruit sauce.

Almond Flour: You can replace almond flour with other gluten-free flours like oat flour. Keep in mind that different flours may alter the texture and flavor slightly.*

Oat Flour: If you’re looking for a gluten-free and oat-free alternative, use certified gluten-free oat flour or a blend of gluten-free flours such as rice flour, sorghum flour, or quinoa flour.*

Maple Syrup: Honey or agave nectar can be used instead of maple syrup. Adjust the amount according to your preferred sweetness.

Coconut Oil: Unsalted butter or a dairy-free butter substitute, such as vegan margarine, can replace coconut oil.

Almond Milk: Substitute almond milk with any dairy or non-dairy milk of your choice, such as soy milk, rice milk, or oat milk. Ensure it suits your dietary needs.

Almond Butter: If you’re allergic to nuts or simply prefer a different taste, you can use cashew butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, or tahini as a replacement for almond butter.

Whipping Cream: If you’re looking for a dairy-free option, use coconut cream (the thick part from a can of full-fat coconut milk) or a dairy-free whipped topping.

How Do You Make My Peach Cobbler with Almond Butter Caramel Sauce?

Step 3: Make the Cobbler Batter

Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, including almond flour, oat flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir with a spatula until well combined. It should be the consistency of a thick pancake batter. You can add more oat flour, or milk to adjust if needed.

Step 4: Layer the Cobbler

Pour the sauce over the peaches. Spread the cobbler batter over the peaches. You can spread it as one solid layer, or spread it in plops to allow the fruit to show through the cracks.

Step 5: Bake the Cobbler

Bake your cobbler in a 350°F oven for 35-38 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the top of the cobbler begins to turn a golden brown. The fruit will be bubbly when you remove the cobbler from the oven but shrink as it cools.

Remove the cobbler and cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Step 6: Make the Caramel Sauce

Combine the almond butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and salt in a small bowl. Whisk with a fork until combined.

Peach Cobbler Made Gluten-Free Recipe Notes

Peaches: You can use either fresh or frozen peaches for this recipe. If using frozen peaches, be sure to thaw and drain any excess liquid before using them in the cobbler.

Baking Dish: Ensure that your baking dish is well-greased to prevent sticking. A 2-quart baking dish is recommended, but you can use a similar-sized dish.

Consistency: The cobbler batter should be similar to thick pancake batter. Adjust the amount of oat flour or milk to achieve this consistency if needed.

Spreading Batter: You can spread the cobbler batter evenly over the peaches, or you can dollop it in spoonfuls for a more rustic appearance, allowing some fruit to show through.

Stiff Peaks: Whip the cream until stiff peaks form. This means the whipped cream will hold its shape when the whisk or beaters are lifted.

Serving: Store the whipped cream in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. It’s a delightful addition to the cobbler and can also be served on other desserts.

Warm or Chilled: You can serve the cobbler warm or at room temperature, or you can refrigerate it and serve it cold. The choice is yours, depending on your preference.

Serving Suggestions:

Feel free to get creative with the fruit in the cobbler. You can use a combination of peaches and other fruits like berries or apples to change the flavor profile.

Room Temperature: You can store the peach cobbler at room temperature for a short period, typically up to 1-2 hours, as long as it’s not too hot or humid. After that, it’s best to refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.

Refrigeration: For longer storage, place any remaining cobbler in an airtight container or cover it with plastic wrap, and store it in the refrigerator. It should stay fresh for up to 3-4 days.

Freezing: If you have a larger batch or plan to store it for an extended period, you can freeze the cobbler. To do this, wrap individual portions or the entire dish tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Place it in an airtight container or a resealable freezer bag to prevent freezer burn. Label the container with the date to keep track of storage time. Peach cobbler can typically be frozen for up to 2-3 months.

Refrigeration: If you have any leftover almond butter caramel sauce, store it in a sealed, airtight container in the refrigerator. It should stay good for up to a week. When you’re ready to use it again, gently warm it to restore its drizzling consistency.

If you have extra maple whipped cream, store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container or a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Whipped cream typically retains its texture for 1-2 days in the fridge.

Reheating: When reheating portions of the cobbler, you can warm them in the oven at a low temperature (around 300°F or 150°C) for about 15-20 minutes. Alternatively, you can use the microwave, heating in short intervals to prevent overheating.

Enjoying Leftovers:

For the best taste and texture, serve leftovers of the cobbler warm or at room temperature. You can also re-whip the maple whipped cream if it has softened or deflated.

Can I use canned peaches instead of fresh or frozen peaches?

Yes, you can use canned peaches as a convenient alternative. Ensure that you drain them well before using to control the liquid content in your cobbler.

Can I use regular flour instead of oat flour and oat flour instead of almond flour?

While the recipe is designed to be gluten-free, you can make substitutions if you don’t require a gluten-free dessert. Use all-purpose flour in place of oat and almond flour if you prefer a traditional cobbler recipe.

Can I prepare any parts of this recipe in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the almond butter caramel sauce and maple whipped cream in advance and store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. This can help save time when assembling the cobbler.

Can I use different fruits in the cobbler?

Absolutely! You can customize the cobbler by using other fruits like apples, berries, or a combination of your favorites. Adjust the sweetener and spices accordingly to complement the chosen fruits.

Can I make the whipped cream dairy-free?

Yes, you can create a dairy-free version of whipped cream by using coconut cream, a dairy-free whipped topping, or almond milk whipped with a stabilizer. Adjust the sweetener and flavorings to taste.
