Gluten Free Peach Cobbler (Made with Oat Flour)

This Gluten Free Peach Cobbler is a must-make dessert with peaches. It’s a great dessert to bring to any Summer party because it tastes incredible but is so simple to make. It’s gluten free and can be made vegan + dairy free depending on what butter you choose to use.

Summer-time is filled with fun events, BBQs, and church picnics. Especially if you have allergies it’s nice to bring a dessert to pass. I love making this Gluten Free Peach Cobbler made with oat flour and brown rice flour. It’s so easy to make but tastes incredible. People with or without allergies will love it.

This recipe was inspired by another blogger, “The Slow Roasted Italian“. I adapted it to be gluten free and dairy free. I also changed the amount and types of sugar to yield a slightly more healthy peach cobbler. To get her original gluten-full recipe (that I’m sure is DELICIOUS) click here.

What’s Inside this Gluten Free Peach Cobbler + Can I replace any ingredients?

Please see the recipe card for all ingredients and directions. In this section, I’m simply going to show some of the key ingredients and discuss why I chose them for this easy dessert with peaches. I’ll also share where there are some options for replacements.

Peaches – Obviously if you want to make a dessert with peaches you are going to need some peaches. However, you can use this exact same recipe and sub in another fruit to make a different type of cobbler. Berries and Apples make great cobblers.

Oat Flour – I love using oat flour in this recipe because it adds a really warm comforting “oaty” flavor. It also makes the cobbler topping thick and fluffy.

Superfine Brown Rice Flour – I chose this gluten free flour because it has a pretty basic texture. You could replace it with an all-purpose gluten free flour blend like Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur. You could also use regular brown rice flour or white rice flour for a similar result.

Cobblers are pretty low maintenance so even though I haven’t tried a bunch of different flours in this specific recipe, I’m pretty certain most replacements should yield similar results.

Dairy Free Butter – I am using dairy free butter because I’m allergic to dairy. If you’re not allergic to dairy go ahead and use regular butter. For this recipe, I used the Olive Oil Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks. Earth Balance also makes good dairy free butter sticks.

Coconut Sugar – I chose to use coconut sugar because it tastes like brown sugar but is a bit healthier. If you don’t have coconut sugar on hand, feel free to use brown sugar.

Cane Sugar – Even though I wanted this to be a somewhat healthy peach cobbler, I still used some cane sugar. I tried to keep the sugar content low so if you have a strong sweet tooth you may want to add a bit more.

Ground Cinnamon – The ground cinnamon adds a nice warm flavor to this gluten free peach cobbler. For a richer taste, you could also use other warm seasonings like apple pie spice, pumpkin pie spice, ground ginger, etc.

Vinegar or Lemon Juice – Adding some sort of acidity really helps round out the flavors and brighten up the taste of the peaches. If you don’t have vinegar or lemon juice on hand don’t worry, it still tastes good without it.

  • 2 pounds peaches
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar – If you like really sweet desserts you can double this amount
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons gluten free oat flour

Cobbler Topping

  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1 cup superfine brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 12 tablespoons cold dairy free butter or regular butter – cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

For Sprinkling on Top

  • 3 tablespoons cane sugar – If you like very sweet desserts you can double this amount


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • In a large bowl combine chopped peaches and all other peaches ingredients. Mix well.
  • Pour the peaches into a 2 quart baking dish and bake in your preheated oven for 10 minutes. The peaches will start baking while you prepare the rest of your ingredients.
  • While the peaches are baking prepare the cobbler topping in another large bowl. Combine the flours, sugars, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Whisk well until combined.
    Then cut in your dairy free butter using your hands or a pastry cutter until there are pea-sized pebbles. See the picture in the blog post for the desired texture.
    Stir in the boiling water until combined.
  • Remove the peaches from the oven and spoon on your cobbler topping. Gently spread down with back of your spoon.
  • Sprinkle the cobbler with your sugar topping. Place a baking sheet on the bottom rack of your oven just in case the cobbler drips. Place your baking dish back in the oven on the rack above the baking sheet for about 30 minutes.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes before enjoying. It goes great with vanilla dairy free or regular ice cream!
