Who doesn’t love a warm peach cobbler right from the oven? An easy peach cobbler makes it even better. This peach cobbler won’t require you to even pull out your mixer. Just a good old mixing bowl and spoon and this cobbler will turn out divine. If you don’t like oversweet desserts, this has just the right amount of sweetness and spice. The blueberries add a nice touch of tartness to the sweetness of the peaches!
Tips for making this easy peach cobbler
All peaches aren’t equal. When you go to get your peaches from the store, lightly press on them with your finger. For the perfect ripeness, they with be firm with a little give and softness to them. Good peaches equal good cobbler! If you can only find firmer peaches you may want to add a couple of teaspoons of extra sugar to them.
This batter is super easy to make and requires little ingredients. I choose to make this batter dairy-free, but you can use whatever you have on hand. Here are some changes you can make.
- You can replace the coconut milk with any other plant-based milk or dairy milk.
- I used refined coconut oil for this cobbler, but you could also use melted butter. Unrefined coconut oil would make the cobbler have a coconut taste to it. I wouldn’t prefer this, but if you don’t mind the taste of coconut in this dish it would be fine.
- The blueberries give a nice tartness to this cobbler to contrast the sweetness of the peaches. If you don’t prefer blueberries, raspberries or blackberries would also work great.
How this peach cobbler is healthier
Most traditional recipes for cobblers call for up to 2 cups of sugar! That’s a lot of sugar to put in one dessert! I have cut the sugar down to a half cup and just a couple of teaspoons for the fruit. It’s plenty sweet enough! I have also replaced the butter with healthy coconut oil. You can serve this dessert to your family and know it’s healthier than anything you can buy in the store and even most recipes out there!
