This lip-smacking healthy Keto Peach Cobbler is the low carb dessert recipe you have been waiting for. Its incredible flavor is irresistible, and it happens to be simple to make too. Filled with lots of juicy peaches and a gluten-free and grain-free cake, what’s not to love?
I realize that typically peaches aren’t overly keto friendly, but in this case, you can enjoy them without filling up on unwanted carbs! As a matter of fact, because the cobbler is for 18 servings, each serving of keto peach cobbler only has 4.6 Net Carbs. So as long as you don’t go crazy and eat half of it at once, you can enjoy your favorite classic dessert without the guilt.
If you have found yourself missing fruits like peaches, don’t worry! You CAN include them in your diet; you just have to use smaller amounts than what you used to before eating low carb. This will satisfy the desire to eat them while giving your sweet tooth some yumminess that it craves.
Another thing I think you will enjoy about this keto cobbler is that it is great even if you don’t have a lot of experience baking. Trust me; it’s ideal for beginners and older children who want to start baking.
There is the actual cake along with the peach topping. All of the ingredients in my gluten free keto peach cobbler recipe are simple, and you probably have most of them already. Let’s take a look at what you’ll be needing:
Butter - It needs to be softened but not melted. You can set it on the countertop for an hour or so, or you can microwave it in 15-20 second intervals. If it melts, you will need it to cool back down and harden some.
Cream Cheese - It’s best if you can set the cream cheese out ahead of time too. The cream cheese helps give the cobbler an amazing flavor and texture. It’s rich and delicious!
Sweetener - I mainly use my homemade sweetener blend of xylitol, erythritol (or allulose), and stevia because it tastes like sugar and you only need half the amount of other sweeteners. It works well in most keto dessert recipes. I offer suggestions if you'd like to use a monk fruit sweetener or other sweetener in the recipe card.
Eggs - This recipe does needs eggs to bind the custard.
Vanilla - Just a little vanilla extract enhances the flavors of the peaches.
Almond Flour - I can’t tell you how much I enjoy the way the cobbler turns out using almond flour. There really isn’t anything else that works as well in this recipe. I do not recommend subbing in coconut flour.
Baking Powder - You may not realize it, but baking powder is a super important ingredient. It keeps the keto peach cobbler fluffy and not dense and weird like it would be if you skipped adding it.
Peaches - I like to use frozen peaches because they are always delicious. Fresh peaches are hard to find just right unless they are in season. But using frozen, you can make this low carb dessert any time of year.
Salted Butter - It’s essential to use salted butter to ensure that you get the correct result.
Powdered Sweetener - I find the combination of salted butter and a sugar free powdered sweetener works perfectly as the topping. You need a 1:1 sweetener like powdered allulose or erythritol.
How To Make Keto Peach Cobbler
This cozy low carb peach cobbler is so comforting and easy to make. Only a few steps stand in the way between you and this amazing dessert. Time to get busy!
Step One: Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step Two: Combine the butter, cream cheese, and sweetener together using an electric mixer.
Then add in the eggs, vanilla and combine. After it’s mixed, add in the almond flour and baking powder until they are incorporated.
Next, spread the batter into the baking pan.
Step Three: Add the frozen peaches on top of the batter.
Expert Tip: You do not need to thaw the peaches first. Adding them frozen keeps them from getting mushy as the cobbler bakes.
Then sprinkle with the powdered sweetener. Drizzle the melted butter on top.
Step Four: Bake the keto cobbler for 45 minutes or until the cake has golden brown edges and no longer jiggles. Enjoy!
Ginger - If you love the combination of ginger and peaches mix ½-1 teaspoon of ground ginger into the batter before spreading it.
Cinnamon - Cinnamon also makes a nice contrast to the peachers. Just like ginger you only need ½ to 1 teaspoon for a nice cinnamon flavor. If you'd like it stronger you can shake some on top after it comes out of the oven.
Berries - Add some frozen raspberries along with the peaches for a peach melba or swap out the peaches for berries entirely to reduce the carbs. Sub in blueberries to turn this into a low carb keto blueberry cobbler recipe or sub in raspberries for a raspberry cobbler.
Can I Use Fresh Peaches?
Yes, absolutely! Fresh peaches are delicious in my easy keto peach cobbler when they are in season. You’ll need to peel them and slice them into thin slices. The reason I love frozen is that they always taste great. But if you can catch fresh ones that are juicy and it’s the right time of year, then for sure go with fresh.
Can I Have Peaches on Keto?
I'm a firm believer that almost any fruit or vegetable can be eaten on a keto diet IN MODERATION. If you don't agree feel free to make this with berries instead. Each slice has 4.6 net carbs including the peaches. There end up being about two slices of peach per serving. This is quite a bit different than eating a bowl of fruit salad or gobbling down peach after juicy peach. I believe the same is true for my Keto Cherry Pie Bars.
If you prefer berries that are lower carb try my Keto Blackberry Cobbler instead!
How Do You Store Leftover Cobbler?
Leftovers of this easy healthy peach cobbler need to be covered tightly and placed in the refrigerator. This keto cobbler shouldn’t be kept at room temperature, or it will go bad pretty quickly. In the fridge, it will last 4-5 days without any problems. In general, I refrigerate all of my keto desserts so they last longer.
Ice Cream Suggestions
When serving peach cobbler, it just makes sense to include a little bit of ice cream. YUM! Here are some of my favorite keto recipes for ice cream.

- Bake for 45 minutes until the cake no longer jiggles and is golden around the edges.

This was bland. In my usual oven, the bottom began to burn before the center set. That was likely my fault, I could have used the top rack. One could try adding more vanilla, almond extract or cinnamon.
If your peaches were flavorful it should not be bland. The majority of the flavor comes from the peaches.
This was very dry and tasted like cardboard with peaches. Sorry, I was hoping for something wonderful.
I'm surprised to hear that Janet. It normally gets great reviews. Did you make any substitutions?
I’m allergic to almonds so I can’t use almond flour what can I substitute it with can I use lupine flour do I need to add anything to make it equal the consistency
You can use sunflower seed flour in a 1:1 ratio in place of almond flour.

I was wondering if anyone has tried substituting a cup of THM baking blend for 1 of the cups of almond flour? Looks delicious, but I would like to lighten it up a bit.
You can use baking blend but I'd use a bit less than a cup. Try 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons.
Susan Crawford says
You would never know this was made with sugar free products and almond flour!! Fabulous!
Delicious. I used 1/2 cup of Splenda plus 2 Tbs. of a stevia blend in the batter and added 1/2 t. cinnamon. I used fresh peaches (I live near the South Carolina border and this is peak peach season) and for the topping, instead of plain erythritol, I used 1/2 c. of the Splenda brown sugar product. I creamed it with the soft (rather than melted) butter and another 1/2 t. of cinnamon. Dotted that mixture on the top an baked as directed. Best keto peach cobbler recipe I have made so far.
Is it normal for it to cook 50 minutes plus? I followed your recipe and the middle was very jiggly after the initial cooking time so I set a timer for 5min intervals and checked it after each one and it was finally done after 55 minutes. Maybe it’s my oven idk. But very good!
I'm glad you liked it! Ovens can be very different so the jiggle test is important. The golden color and jiggliness is more important than the time.

Can u use fresh peaches?
I have home canned peaches. Could I use those?
You can. The only issue is they might be mushy. It would really depend how firm they are when you start.
I made this last night, using frozen blueberries, and Oh, my!! It is delicious! My non-keto hubby like it, too! I think you're right about the baking powder - this was lighter/less dense than most almond flour baking recipes, and I like that!
The funny thing is, my intention was to make it with blackberries (hubby's favorite) - but I messed up my grocery order and accidentally ordered blueberries instead. But it was a happy mistake - and I will make with blackberries next!
Thank you soooo much!
So to use swerve, I would need 3/4 cup? I just cannot get my brain to compute correctly right now lol
Alayne Habaluyas says
Hi would the same go for using just erythritol or maybe just using splenda? Thank you.
I don't test my recipes with splenda. In this recipe, I really recommend using the sweeteners listed. They give the best texture.
Terry Marks says
Why is a whole tablespoon of baking powder needed. That’s a lot of baking powder. Thanks
Because that's what worked best when I was recipe testing. The cobbler has a great texture and rises well. You could try less if you want.
