Succulent peaches and a sweet, buttery topping make this low carb keto peach cobbler impossibly good! Having healthy peach cobbler doesn’t mean you have to skip out on sweet flavor, either… I’ll show you how to make a gluten-free, sugar-free peach cobbler that everyone at the table will love. It’s similar to my healthy keto blueberry cobbler recipe, just as quick, and delicious with a scoop of keto vanilla ice cream!
While peaches are not keto friendly, many people are able to fit them into their macros occasionally and enjoy them in moderation. Case in point: this almond flour peach cobbler recipe has 8.9 grams of net carbs per serving — on the higher side, but still doable! And if you aren’t keto but just want a healthier peach cobbler without the loads of sugar and white flour, this recipe is perfect.
This healthy peach dessert relies on a few key ingredients to create its iconic flavor and texture: Wholesome Yum Almond Flour and Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend (brown and crystallized)! These ingredients are naturally low in carbs and completely sugar free, while creating the crumbly texture and sweet taste you’d expect from a conventional dessert.
Why You’ll Love This Healthy Peach Cobbler Recipe
- Sweet and fruity flavor
- Juicy fruit with golden brown crumbly topping
- Fuss-free, easy prep
- Works with canned or fresh peaches
- Naturally low in net carbs, gluten-free, grain-free, and delicious for the whole family (kids love it)!
Ingredients You’ll Need
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for easy keto peach cobbler, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
For The Low Carb Peach Cobbler Filling:
- Sliced Peaches – About 4 cups, or 5 medium fresh peaches. If peaches are too high in carbs for you, you can use blueberries to make keto blueberry cobbler instead.
- Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – This recipe uses the crystallized sweetener for a taste just like white sugar, and the brown blend for a touch of rich flavor.
- Cinnamon – Optional, but adds classic flavor.
- Sea Salt – Balances the sweet taste in the filling.
- Xanthan Gum – This ingredient acts as a thickener, without the gluten or extra carbs from flour or cornstarch. If you’re not counting carbs, you could also use 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch (or another cornstarch substitute) instead.
Can you make healthy peach cobbler with canned peaches, or frozen ones?
Yes, you can make sugar-free peach cobbler using canned peaches. Use two 15-ounce cans packed in juice (avoid the kinds with adde sugar!), drained well. Frozen peaches may work, but will need to thaw and might need excess liquid drained.
For The Biscuit Topping:
- Wholesome Yum Almond Flour – Keto peach cobbler with almond flour tastes as good as the original, thanks to its finely-ground texture and neutral taste. Some brands may yield a gritty texture. Coconut flour will not work here, as the topping will get too dry.
- Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – Just a little bit to make the topping sweet.
- Baking Powder – Helps make the topping fluffy. Make sure it’s fresh, and don’t confuse this with baking soda, which would make the topping bitter.
- Sea Salt – Balances the sweetness.
- Butter – I use grass-fed butter, but any unsalted variety works. Some cobblers use melted butter, but keep it cold for this recipe. Coconut oil should also work, as long as it is chilled to a solid state, though the texture and flavor will be different.
- Egg – Use a whole, large egg, or a flax egg for an egg-free option.
- Heavy Whipping Cream – Unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, or another keto milk substitute should also work, but cream offers the richest flavor.
- Vanilla Extract – Use the best quality vanilla you can.
How To Make Keto Peach Cobbler
This section shows how to make peach cobbler healthy, with step-by-step photos and details about the technique. For full instructions, see the recipe card below.
- Cook filling. Combine peaches, Besti, cinnamon, and salt over medium heat, and cook until the peaches soften and render liquid. Taste and adjust sweetener, adding more if desired.
- Thicken. Sprinkle xanthan gum in an even layer over the filling, and stir to combine and thicken.
TIP: Sprinkle xanthan gum, don’t dump!
If dumped, it will not dissolve easily and create lumps instead.
- Transfer. Arrange peaches in a 9×9″ baking dish.
- Make topping dough. Add almond flour, Besti, baking powder, and salt to a food processor, and blitz until uniform.
- Add butter. Pulse until crumbly.
- Finish batter. Add the remaining wet ingredients: Egg, cream, and vanilla. Pulse to combine.
- Spoon batter. Drop spoonfuls of batter over the peaches. (If desired, you can leave a few spots uncovered.)
- Bake. Your gluten free healthy peach cobbler is finished when the top is golden.
- Store: Keep this healthier peach cobbler covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- Reheat: Warm in a 350 degree F oven until heated through. It also tastes delicious cold!
- Freeze: Wrap tightly and freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bake at 350 degrees F until warmed.
