Vegan Peach Cobbler

By Alexandra Caspero on July 18, 2022

Vegan Peach Cobbler! The BEST summer dessert. Fresh peaches topped with vegan cobbler. If you have extra peaches lying around, then you’ve gotta make this easy peach cobbler recipe!

It’s officially the best fruit season and I could not be more excited. Going to the market feels like a celebration for all of my senses: the beautiful jewel tone colors of fresh cherries, nectarines, plums, watermelon and of course– peaches!

We’ve been peach picking twice in the last week, ensuring enough for snacking, for my peach pie bars and now for this vegan peach cobbler.

Are you ready for more cobbler? I posted a vegan cherry cobbler recipe a few weeks ago and while I love that juicy cobbler recipe, there is something quintessentially summer about a peach version.

The cherry cobbler that I made a few weeks ago is a little different than this one. That version had more of a biscuit topping, this one is mix between a pie crust and a pillowy dough. I wanted a topping that almost covered all of the peaches so you get a bite of cobbler topping and sweet peaches in every bite.

One of the best ways to enjoy fresh peaches (along with my easy peach crisp for two!) this is the cobbler recipe that you’ll turn to summer after summer.

Here’s how to make it.

Ingredients for Vegan Peach Cobbler

This recipe only contains 8 ingredients! Super simple and easier than any type of pie or other peach recipe. That’s where my brain is at right now- simple, simple, simple.

All you’ll need for this recipe is:

  • Fresh peaches
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Baking Powder
  • Oil
  • Coconut Milk Beverage (or other non-dairy milk)

Substitution FAQs:

Why Coconut Milk Beverage?

I tested this recipe using a few different types of non-dairy milk and found that coconut milk beverage, the kind you get in the refrigerated section of the store, worked better than almond milk, oat milk or soy milk. That said, the difference was small and any non-dairy milk that you have in your home will work!

Can I use frozen peaches?

As long as your frozen peaches are uncooked, you can use them in this cobbler recipe. No need to thaw first, just toss them with the flour, sugar and spices and continue with the rest of the recipe.

Some recipes called for cornstarch or arrowroot powder, but I don’t think you need that– the flour helps to absorb some of the juiciness of the fresh peaches. I don’t recommend canned peaches as a substitute.

Can I make this a gluten-free peach cobbler?

You can use a 1:1 gluten-free flour blend instead of the all-purpose flour in this recipe. I don’t recommend substituting almond meal flour or other gluten-free flours, you’ll need a flour blend specific for baking for best results.

Will other types of sweeteners work?

I know many readers like to make dessert recipes a bit more wholesome, but I don’t recommend swapping in maple syrup for the sugar in this recipe as you need a solid sugar vs. a liquid. That said, I haven’t tried it with coconut sugar but it should work.

In general, I don’t sweat at all about using real cane sugar in my dessert recipes. It’s dessert! Not everything has to be the healthiest version possible– and yes, that’s coming from a Registered Dietitian.

How to make this vegan peach cobbler recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven

    Turn the oven to 375 degrees F, then lightly grease a casserole dish and set aside.

  2. Prep the peaches

    Toss together the sliced peaches, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Pour into the prepared pan.

  3. Make the cobbler batter

    Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the oil and coconut milk and whisk to just combine, taking care not to over mix.

  4. Dollop the cobbler batter on top of the peaches!

    Spread the mixture over the peaches and place in the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden browned and bubbly. Remove, let cool slightly and enjoy.

Told you it was simple! We love this one most warm with a big scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream on top (Oatly vanilla and Brave Robot are my favorite dairy-free ice cream brands). Alternatively, you can top with whipped cream or vanilla yogurt.

Enjoy y’all- I know you are going to love this one. xo

FAQs

Do I have to peel peaches for peach cobbler?

You technically don’t have to peel peaches for peach cobbler, but I find that it’s a more favorable texture using peeled peaches.

What’s the easiest way to peel peaches?

I use a paring knife to quickly peel peaches, but if you want to easily peel your peaches then cut an X in the bottom of your peach, then place in boiling water for 30-60 seconds, then place immediately into cold water. The skin should peel right off. I have a tutorial for how to do this in my How to Peel Tomatoes post and the method is the exact same for peaches.

How do you know when peach cobbler is done?

You’ll know this one is done with the peaches are bubbly and the cobbler is golden brown on top.

      I’m a type two diabetic and so I’m gonna try this recipe looks delicious I love peach cobbler and I happen to have some fresh peaches I’m just going to make a smaller amount for serving of three so that I can look forward once a week to having this deliciousness. I’ve given up all sugars and doing a vegan life change and craving sweets so much. Thank you for this recipe.

      This was amazing, I have to go dairy free due to nursing my little and was craving this but every recipe I looked at had some form of milk. This recipe hit the spot and was delicious. Will definitely make again !

      I split 25 pounds of peaches with a friend and tried this recipe. I will be making it again and again. Best peach cobbler recipe I have ever tried.

      This sounds so good, but i had a question. Could i use canned peaches in their juice, drained if i can’t find any good, quality peaches in my area?I haven’t had good luck with finding good fresh peaches this year, and with this covid, i don’t feel comfortable going to our farmers market. And would i need to adjust the baking time?I’m hoping to make it for my best friend, her fav is peach pie, and i think she would love this!!

        Hi Katie– I think it would work; it might be a little more watery but should still be Ok. I might even suggest frozen and thawed peaches instead of canned– that’s what I would do first. I haven’t tried it that way, but should work. I’ve done with with berries before and it works great!

      Hi!

      Is it canned coconut milk or a regular carton of coconut milk (like any other vegan milk). And what fat percentage?

      Looks so good! 🙂

        It’s coconut milk beverage, the kind in the carton and not the can. I think coconut works best in this recipe, but you can try with other milks.

      Hi, I’m making this recipe right now and I just wanted to know if the part without the peaches supposed to be doagh-like after whisking it together?

      1. Alex
        August 19, 2019 AT 1:26 pm

        Yes, you should be able to “dollop” the dough on top of the peaches, like shown in the photo.

      I tried this recipe and the peaches mix turned out good, but the top biscuit part turned out grainy and dry. Could it be that the topping doesn’t have enough liquid?

      1. Alex
        August 19, 2019 AT 1:26 pm

        Hi Ray, I usually don’t have that problem. What milk did you use? Did you make any other changes?
