Paleo Peach Cobbler (AIP friendly)

peach cobbler

It is peach season on the Gutsy By Nature urban homestead and that means just one thing… Time to create a gluten free paleo peach cobbler recipe! This version is for everyone, including those who are following the paleo autoimmune protocol because it doesn’t use nuts or eggs. You could also modify it to be vegan, if you so desired. Peaches for all!

Believe it or not, we have just a single peach tree in our tiny townhouse yard in Alexandria, Virginia and it gives us more fruit than we know what to do with every year. I wish I knew what variety it was because not only is it extremely productive, but the peaches are absolutely delicious and the fruit comes a good month earlier than any other peaches are available locally. Plus, it is resilient. It has survived nearly being toppled over in a hurricane and our complete lack of knowledge on how to care for it. Basically we just ignore it 11 months out of the year and revel in its bounty every June.

Ingredient notes:

This AIP cobbler recipe is another great application of my new favorite gluten-free flour – Otto’s Natural Cassava Flour! I experimented with some cobbler recipes last peach season and never created anything that I thought measured up to my memories of a biscuit-style peach cobbler made with regular wheat flour. This year I decided to experiment with the biscuits I created for the AIP Strawberry Shortcake last month and was thrilled with the result.

Important! Cassava flour is NOT the same thing as tapioca flour or starch. It is the whole root, dried and ground, while tapioca flour is just the isolated pure starch and has a very different effect in baked goods. Unfortunately, you probably can’t find cassava flour in your local stores but will have to purchase it online. Apparently there is a wide variety in the quality and labeling of cassava flour, so the only brand I currently recommend is Otto’s Natural. You can learn more about it and purchase here.

Notes for healing diets:

  • Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) – The Paleo Approach: This recipe is acceptable for the elimination phase as a treat. Remember that sugars, even natural ones like honey, can be inflammatory and that Dr. Ballantyne recommend’s limiting your fructose consumption.
  • Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD): Not legal, due to the cassava flour.
  • Low-FODMAP: Peaches are very high in sorbitol and mannitol, both polyols, and honey is high in fructose. If you tolerate polyols but not fructose you could substitute another sweetener for the honey.

Absolutely delicious! I made this last month. I wish I could eat it every day. I used a different brand of Cassava flour and made my own adaptations. (I always use recipes & then do my own twist.) I recommend this for any fruit cobbler. I’ve used it with fresh & frozen fruit. Thank you for this recipe.

Could you give me an idea about the amount of leaches in cups? I have small ones that I am going to use.

Sorry I missed this earlier Julie… WordPress hasn’t been notifying me of comments! In case you are still wondering, the amount of peaches is very flexible. I usually end up with about 2 cups, but if you have more or less it will still work just fine.

Looks delicious, can you give a weight amount for the peaches, also, what can I sub for the lard? Don’t usually have that on hand, can I use coconut oil?
Thank you

The amount of peaches is very flexible. You probably need a pound or two, but it can vary and still turn out great. For the lard, you could definitely use coconut oil but I think palm shortening gives a better texture.
