Having someone over for dessert but you have no idea what to feed them because they’re Gluten Free, Dairy Free, or Vegan? Here’s a recipe for gluten and dairy free peach cobbler that will be sure to impress those with or without food allergies. And this recipe is just in time for the ripening of your Red Haven peaches from your tree.
2 cups sliced fresh, frozen, or canned peaches
1-2 tsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp almond extract
dash of cinnamon (optional, but highly recommended)
3/4 cups sugar
2/3 cup almond flour or brown rice flour
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp xanthum gum (you can omit this if you don’t have it, it just makes the flours stick together since they don’t have gluten in them)
First, peel and slice your fresh peaches and place fruit in 2 1/2 quart dish and drip lemon juice over them. If you use canned peaches, drain and dump in dish.
- Cream together melted coconut oil and sugar, then add almond extract.
- Add in coconut milk, then rice/almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, xanthum gum and dash of salt.
- Mix well and spread over fruit. This will be thick and a tad lumpy.
- After this, I like to lightly sprinkle the top with a little sugar and a little freshly ground salt.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes. I bake the cobbler until it starts to look caramelized on top, which gives a bit of a crunch to go with the chewy middle.
Serve warm plain or with frozen ice cream of choice. I personally like it served up with a little bit of coconut milk if I don’t have any dairy free ice cream on hand. My husband tells me it’s delicious with vanilla ice cream.
This recipe works great with using brown rice flour, or almond flour. After trying both, our favorite is the almond flour version.
Careful, it’s addicting and you might want to eat this entire dish of gluten and dairy free peach cobbler.
NOTE: Cobbler can be made with canned peaches, but it is always best made with fresh picked peaches from your peach trees from Western Gardens. Fall is a good time to plant trees.
