Paleo peach cobbler for two will satisfy your sweet tooth with this mini dessert! I’ll admit, I’m more of a chocolate dessert lover myself, but who can resist pies and cobblers?! Summer just isn’t complete without at least one healthy peach cobbler, and I do have to say that I was feeling a little uninspired looking for fresh paleo peach cobbler recipes around the web. They all had some sort of crumble topping instead of the classic fluffy pastry that we all know true cobbler to have. I pride myself on being able to turn any recipe into a paleo version without sacrificing flavor, looks, and texture so I was up for the cobbler challenge!
With a little tweaking, I created the perfect gluten-free peach cobbler with a fluffy pastry topping that no one will ever guess is paleo. This mini peach cobbler recipe is just the perfect size, too.
My favorite part is how the syrup becomes almost caramel-like and just a bit sticky around the edges of the pan. It’s absolutely divine.
Peach Cobbler Ingredients
One thing that I love about this easy peach cobbler is that the ingredients are things I already have in the pantry. The only thing I have to purchase is peaches, and you can find them everywhere when they are in season and at their best.
Here is a quick run-down of the ingredients in this Southern peach cobbler recipe:
- Peaches – They are the perfect star of the show and take this dessert to the next level. The juicier, the better!
- Coconut Sugar – This is where you get the extra sweetness. You could also use a sugar-free sweetener, like erythritol, if you want to cut down the sugar.
- Blanched Almond Flour – Used for that delicious pastry topping.
- Tapioca Flour – Another key ingredient in the topping for the best peach cobbler recipe.
- Paleo Baking Powder – This helps to leaven the simple peach cobbler.
- Coconut Milk – You don’t need much, but we’re using this instead of dairy milk in this quick peach cobbler recipe.
- Ghee – Takes this peach cobbler with fresh peaches to the next level of good!
- Vanilla – Can you even bake anything without including some vanilla? NO. It enhances the flavors in this gluten-free peach cobbler.
- Cinnamon – This makes the homemade peach cobbler recipe taste just like the traditional cobbler recipes you are used to.
How To Make Peach Cobbler
Take a peek at these super-simple steps to make this delicious gluten-free peach cobbler:

- Finish with cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle the top of the crumble.

Can You Use Frozen Peaches In Place Of Fresh?
When making this mini peach cobbler, you can easily swap out fresh peaches for frozen if you want. This works well if peaches aren’t in season, so you can eat it any time of year you wish.
TIP: If using frozen peaches, it’s essential to let them thaw and drain off any juices. And, check the label on frozen peaches to make sure there are no added sugars or additives.
How Do You Defrost Frozen Peaches?
If you do decide to use frozen peaches, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight. Another option is to place them in a bowl with cold water, then drain the water and juice before baking.
Do You Eat Peach Cobbler Hot Or Cold?
You can eat this fresh peach cobbler recipe hot or cold – up to you! No matter how you serve this gluten-free peach cobbler, it’s going to taste amazing.
How Do You Store Healthy Peach Cobbler?
Store this healthy peach cobbler either in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. It doesn’t have any preservatives, so it will spoil faster than store bought fresh peach cobbler recipes.
But, this mini peach cobbler recipe is always better when you eat it fresh.
Can You Freeze Paleo Peach Cobbler?
Yes, you can freeze this gluten-free peach cobbler. Wrap it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then freeze in an airtight, freezer-safe container. When you are ready to serve, place the healthy peach cobbler in the fridge overnight to thaw.
To reheat, either toss in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or place in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.
Or, serve the fresh peach cobbler recipe at room temperature. Preferably with some ice cream! My favorites are chocolate coconut milk ice cream (who says it has to be vanilla?)

More TIPS about this paleo recipe in the post above!
- Preheat oven to 400°.
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and slice an X into the bottoms of the peaches. Boil 30-60 seconds, until you start to see the flesh peeling away at the X's. Remove and rinse with cold water. Peel the peaches and cut into segments.
Place the peaches back into the pot with the water and coconut sugar *(I use 1 tablespoon but this may not be sweet enough for some. To have it taste more decadent, use 2 tablespoons.) Place the pot over medium heat and stir gently until it starts to bubble. Allow the sugar water to turn syrupy and thick.
Place the peach mixture into a un-greased 6 1/2 inch skillet or small baking dish. Sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt.
In a small bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca, baking powder, melted ghee, coconut milk, vanilla, and 1 teaspoon coconut sugar. Mix until smooth and place three dollops of batter on the peaches.
- Combine the remaining 1/2 tablespoon coconut sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the pastry comes out clean. Serve with coconut vanilla ice cream!
