Simple Brown Sugar Vegan Peach Cobbler Recipe
This juicy and rich vegan peach cobbler is a twist on classic Southern peach cobbler, but made with brown sugar biscuits that bake soft and tall, and you don’t even need to remove the peach peels. Jammy, sweet, and deliciously refreshing with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream, you’re going to LOVE this simple vegan peach cobbler recipe!
Why you’ll love this vegan peach cobbler:
If there’s any vegan peach cobbler recipe you should try this summer, it’s this one. When I say it’s beyond approachable and so easy, I mean it.
You don’t even need to peel the peach skins. That jammy and juicy peach filling comes naturally with just 5 simple ingredients (just like on my roasted peach cobbler cheesecake!).
Here’s why you’ll love this vegan peach cobbler recipe:
- Flavor and texture: We’re baking this peach cobbler fruit on the bottom, biscuit on top. However, the biscuit is VERY similar to the fluffy and soft cobbler of a Southern peach cobbler. Just a different method! The result is super juicy roasted brown sugar peaches that are baked with a cake-like fluffy rich biscuit.
- Only 9 Ingredients: All of which are probably already in your cupboard! Unless you have to run out and get some ripe peaches 🙂
- You don’t need to pre-bake the peaches: Some peach cobbler recipes call for this. But not this recipe. We’re simply mixing the peaches in the actual baking dish, and topping with the biscuit before shoving the whole pot into the oven!
- You won’t believe this peach cobbler is vegan: Nor dairy free! It’s just so unbelievably rich, juicy, and jammy, it’s the perfect summer dessert to please all eaters.
If you need a dessert to bring to your summer barbecue, Fourth of July party, or just want something sweet yet healthy, this is your recipe!
Why you don’t need to remove the peach peels for peach cobbler:
Most recipes call for peeling the peach skins off, but to be honest, I couldn’t be bothered. It takes an extra 15-20 minutes. Plus, peaches are so freaking irritating to peel in the first place, and it really doesn’t yield you any different texture.
So why peel? I say, skip it. Plus, then it’s less waste.
Your juicy peach cobbler filling will still be just as jammy, and personally I like the taste of the peach peel, so you get more peach in your peach cobbler!
Want to know how simple and easy this peach cobbler really is? The filling is just 3 ingredients, and the cobbler on top is only 5 ingredients! How wonderful is that?! Plus, the ingredients are incredibly simple and easy to find.
For this easy cobbler recipe, you’ll need:
- Peaches: Yellow or white peaches work! I use JUST ripe peaches. They’re perfect.
- Brown sugar: You can use maple syrup though for either component- the peaches or the biscuits (or both!).
- Vanilla extract
- Flour: I like to use all purpose flour. For gluten free, you can use King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten free flour.
- Vegan buttermilk: I make this myself. It’s just a simple combination of dairy free milk and apple cider vinegar.
- Cinnamon & nutmeg
- Vegan butter: You can also use coconut oil here.
- Baking powder
In terms of baking equipment, you really only need a casserole dish and a bowl to make the biscuits! Using a pastry cutter is easiest to make the biscuits, but you can also use a fork as well.

Fruit cobbler recipe tips & tricks:
- Make sure to use fresh peaches. Sometimes, people mention that they end up with a gummy peach cobbler filling. The only way to avoid that is by using fresh peaches that are in season. Using canned peaches or a canned peach filling will yield a really gluey texture that just won’t taste good! Keep in mind that peaches are in season from the beginning of May until late July!
- If you need gluten free vegan peach cobbler: I recommend using King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten free flour blend. It’s amazing!
- There’s no need to peel the peaches! Some people say that you must peel the skin off of the peaches before using in a cobbler. However, I’m super lazy when it comes to a really simple recipe, and have found that it’s totally fine to make this peach cobbler with the peel still on the peaches. Save yourself some time, and skip the blanching process!
- If you don’t have vegan butter: you can swap in coconut oil for an equal amount in the biscuit recipe. Make sure to use triple refined coconut oil if you don’t want the coconut taste!
You are just going to absolutely love this healthy vegan peach cobbler recipe! It’s just so easy, and perfect for all eaters, even the vegan skeptics.

Jammy, sweet, and deliciously refreshing with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream, you’re going to LOVE this simple vegan peach cobbler recipe!
Peach Cobbler Filling:
- 5 medium peaches, sliced (about 4 cups)
- 1/3 cup (85 g) organic brown sugar*
- 1 tbsp arrowroot starch or cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Vegan Brown Sugar Biscuits:
- 1 1/2 cups (190 g) all purpose flour*
- 1/4 cup (50 g) organic granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup (50 g) organic brown sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 5 tbsp (56 g) vegan butter, cold
- 3/4 cup (180 mL) vegan buttermilk, cold
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a large casserole dish. Set aside. Prepare the vegan buttermilk by combining the dairy-free milk and apple cider vinegar. Mix together in a small bowl and set aside, to be used in the biscuits.
- Prepare the peach cobbler filling: make sure the peaches are sliced, then place them into the casserole dish. Add in the remaining ingredients of the peach filling (brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg), and toss to evenly coat. Set aside.
- Make the biscuit dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and sea salt. Add in the cubed vegan butter, and use a pastry cutter or a fork to cut the butter into the flour mixture until you achieve a sand-like texture. Then add in the vegan buttermilk and vanilla extract, and use a rubber spatula or fork to fold the vegan buttermilk into the flour mixture until you achieve a wet dough. Be careful not to over mix the dough. You’ll mix it until the buttermilk has just mixed into the flour.
- Top the peaches: Spoon globs of biscuit dough on top of the peaches to create the cobbler.
- Bake the vegan peach cobbler: place the casserole dish into the oven to bake for 45 minutes. After 30 minutes, if you see the biscuits lightly browning, you can cover with tin foil to bake for the remaining time. Remove the cobbler from the oven, and allow the cobbler to cool for 15 minutes.
- Serve the peach cobbler: serve the cobbler with scoops of vegan vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
- Storage: store any leftovers in an airtight container and in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Brown sugar: Swap in coconut sugar or maple syrup if desired.
Gluten free: Swap in King Arthur Measure-for-Measure gluten free flour blend.
