(Flourless!) Keto Peach Cobbler 🍑

(Flourless!) Keto Peach Cobbler 🍑

With a fluffy cake-like topping

This is a suuuper fun and easy recipe inspired by my flourless keto pancakes, as the batter lends itself supremely to yield a fluffy topping… that is in no way mushy (or wet!). A bit of a shocker in keto fruit bakes, needless to say. 

(And I’ll even venture out and say that I bet this will make a terrific base for a tres leches cake!)

It appears that the trick is to simply use a nut butter rather than a flour. Though what is a keto ‘flour’ if not but a finely ground nut butter. Or perhaps better put, nut butter is essentially blended nut flour right? *Head spins* 

However way you think about it, this is one keto batter you’ll want to keep in your arsenal! Its simple, tasty and with a terrific fluffy texture. 

p. s. the carb count was calculated for an entire (large!) peach per serving, but I found that you can also bake this up using half a peach and it feels quite generous (as the topping is quite filling). It’s a *very* satisfying dessert either way.

The nut butter

While I found that almond butter works best here taste wise, I can also see macadamia and cashew butters working very nicely too. (Avoid peanut butter though, as it will overpower the peaches). 

Most almond butters come unsalted, but if you get the chance to pick go for the salted. It being pre-seasoned nice and thoroughly allows us to skip the step of guesstimating how much salt to add (and this is a lot more important than you might think given that we’re working with nuts and eggs, and no one likes bland cakes).

Which brings me to, if the nut butter in your pantry is unsalted, no need to panic i.e. rush to the store. Just add a very generous pinch (scant 1/4 tsp) and give everything an extra whisk.

Ingredients
  

For the peach filling

  • 2 peaches cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener of choice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

For the cobbler (cake like!) topping

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener of choice **
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons (salted!) almond butter or nut butter of.choice*

Serving suggestions

Instructions
 

  • Please note that this recipe can be scaled easily. To give you a visual idea, pictured is a Lodge 5" skillet with half a batch (one peach and 1/2 the batter)... and that's perfect for me (I'm doing more 'low carb' than keto right now). But when I want less carbs, it's still incredibly satisfying with less peach- a sort of upside down fluffy peach cake, iykwim. i.e. adjust the peach to your macros, it's still yum-to-boot!
  • Preheat oven to 400°F/ 200°C. Mix the peach with the sweetener, lemon juice and cinnamon (to taste!). Say, if your peaches are at their prime, you wanna let them shine and a little less added help is needed.
  • Transfer peach filling to a small skillet (or bakeware of choice) and dot the tablespoon of butter throughout. Bake for 15 minutes while while you prepare the topping, to get it nice and hot so it fluffs up nicely!
  • Whisk the egg(s) thoroughly in a medium bowl until light and foamy (a min or two if by hand). Add in the sweetener, vanilla extract and baking powder. Whisk in your nut butter of choice until nice and smooth.
  • Remove skillet from the oven after 15 minutes, and pour the cobbler topping on top (aim for about a finger deep, as it fluffs quite nicely). Bake for another 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. I've noticed that bake time here can vary quite a bit depending on how juicy your fruit is and the radius of your bakeware, but once its nice and golden it should be done.
  • Serve right away with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream!
  • My top (aesthetic) tip: I found that leaving some peach slices on top lead to a much prettier outcome, as well as a "less is more" approach when it comes to the topping: adding a finger height should be more than enough. Say, I had one fluff up too much, then collapse post bake and look all wrinkly (still yum though!).

    So good! No flour, minimal ingredients, quick. Perfect dessert. I halved the recipe, used a 5 inch pie plate. Truvia Complete brown for the filling and the cake. I thought one peach wouldn’t be enough, not so! I made it to have at my daughters baby shower, ate half of it already. I’m making it for a potluck at work. This really didn’t taste like lowcarb. Delicious! Thank you for posting these recipes, I love sweets and you make it possible for me to enjoy desserts even on keto.

    • That’s so awesome to hear Zelma! And I agree with you, this is one of my favorite recipes I’ve developed (easy, tasty and great ingredients).

      p.s. check out the flourless pancakes as they’re a spinoff of this one

      p.p.s. you can also use it with any other fruit- berries, apples (or ‘apples’) etc

    Thank you for the recipe! We had blackberries in the freezer so gave it a try with those instead of the peach. Topped with fresh whipped cream. So delicious – and super easy. This is a keeper!

    The whole family enjoyed this one so much, loved the topping! Thank you for making more easy recipes like these, the pancake version will be easy to make for the kids.

    DELICIOUS! SUPERB! AMAZING! I used half a peach, erythritol and it came out so bomb. Thank you, peaches are my favorite!

    Also for all of those saying this isn’t ‘keto’, I’m diabetic and wear a CGM. I had this for dessert and it didn’t spike my sugar more than other keto fruity desserts. I saw people commenting about Glucose Goddess on instagram and yes, her tips have been awesome for me to eat higher carbs and still not spike my blood sugar. I’m assuming that the fatty topping here helped to “dress” the carbs here and helped to keep the spike low. Awesome!

    • Please see the notes Judie! I could’ve calculated the macros using 1/2 (or 1/4th!) of a peach like the other keto blogs do… but I’m trying to lessen the stigma that keto desserts need to be less than say 5g net. In my experience of doing keto for years now, you can eat more carbs than we think (when done properly).

      Peaches have about the same carbs as blueberries, so consume according to your macros. Xo!!

        Agreed, I’m diabetic and there’s so much more to eating low carb than just limiting carbs. The Glucose Revolution is a great book to learn more about this.

        Terrific recipe here! I used half a peach per serving and added a handful of blackberries which I adore.

        • For sure, but also as keto/low carb depending on the amount of peach. Keto is 20-50g net carbs (or even 100g if you’re fat adapted), so 15g net carbs is still pretty low carb. I’ve been a ‘keto blogger’ for 4 years, and I’m determined to push the stigma that ‘all carbs’ are bad and that keto foods need to be under 5g net. Ketosis is an incredibly interesting metabolic state, and I wholeheartedly believe that we’re limiting ourselves by not taking into account other factors that spike glucose.

          p.s. someone commented on a book called the glucose revolution (she’s on instagram as glucose goddess), worth a follow as she talks more in depth about tricks to eat more balanced while still not spiking blood sugar. It’s an interesting subject for sure!

    In the recipe you state in #1 “ Please note that this recipe can be scaled easily. One batch is good for a”. Good for a what?
    Please tell us.
    Thank you.

    • Susan THANK YOU! I’m dying a little, def didn’t copy everything :/

    Hi! I really like your receipts and I have done many of them. The peach cobbler looks amazing but how can be keto with 14 g carbs per serving? I’m I missing something?

    • Please see the notes Mariel!

    I made this with apples in place of peaches and peanut butter in place of the other nut butter. Turned out yummy!

  8. Kellie Anderson says:

    I can’t wait to give this a try! I was expecting a little bit of almond flour and was happy to see almond butter instead. I know already how almond butter really does “fluff up” when baked, so I know that this will be amazing in texture. And seasonal peaches*swoon*

    • Lisa E says:

      This comes out to 14 carbs if you subtract the fiber, 19 if you’re counting total carbs you are on the threshold of your 20 carb per day limit! Taking in account that the artificial sweetener may come off the total I would still call this low carb not Keto. But I will add it looks wonderful and I’m thinking berries for a lower carb count and will have to give it a try with them. Thank you for sharing!

  9. Jill says:

    I want to make it with blueberries as it’s what I have around, should I still bake them for 15 mins prior? Thank you!! Oh and would you add the cinnamon still?

    My mouth actually watered! And while I know not for everyone, I’m really enjoying this more relaxed approach to low carb that you’re bringing. An entire peach is too much for me, but I’ll adjust to my macros.
