This is the best and easiest Vegan Peach Cobbler! Perfect when peaches are in season, you will want to make this over and over again.
Does anyone else enjoy peach season as much as I do? This time of year peaches start showing up at the Farmer’s Market, and they are beyond incredible! We eat plenty of them sliced for snacks, and I even put some peeled and diced peach on my pizza last week. It was actually delicious! But my other favorite thing to do with fresh peaches? MAKE PEACH COBBLER!
Specifically, this vegan peach cobbler. It truly is the best, with a perfectly sweet topping and plenty of fresh peaches. Plus it’s easy to make!
How to make Vegan Peach Cobbler:
(See recipe card at the bottom of the post for the full recipe and print options)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. Prepare your peaches. I simply sliced them, but you can peel them and dice them if you’d like.
To peel peaches: The skin doesn’t bother me, but to easily peel peaches, boil a large pot of water, then turn off the heat and drop the peaches in, whole, for about 10 seconds. Then place them in an ice bath or run them under cold water. After that, the skins can be peeled off easily.
Next, place the peaches in the dish, and sprinkle with sugar and cornstarch. Mix well in the dish and spread out evenly. Make the simple cobbler batter, then spread it on top of the peaches. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the crust is golden and the peaches are bubbling.
Can I use frozen or canned peaches?
It’s definitely better with fresh peaches, but you can use frozen or canned peaches as well. For frozen, thaw and drain them before using. For canned, drain them before using.
How ripe should fresh peaches be for cobbler?
You want peaches that are ripe but still somewhat firm, not too soft and mushy or your cobbler will be mushy as well.
Can I make this in advance?
No, I wouldn’t suggest it. It’s really best fresh, though I enjoy any leftovers from the refrigerator for a few days. You could prepare your peaches ahead of time, so it’s faster to put together when you are ready to serve it.
Serve peach cobbler warm with a scoop of non-dairy vanilla ice cream or coconut whipped cream. Leftovers keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator, and taste great cold or warmed up. Enjoy!

Easy Vegan Peach Cobbler
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish. A 8x8 dish will work as well. You can even use a 9x13 dish but the cobbler will be more spread out.
- Prepare the peaches: Slice or dice your peaches (peel if desired, see Note on how to best do this). Place them in the casserole dish, then sprinkle the 1/4 cup of sugar and cornstarch on top. Mix right in the dish to combine, then spread the peaches out evenly in the dish.
- Make the batter: In a large bowl, mix together the melted vegan butter, sugar, vanilla and soy milk. Now add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix to combine. The batter will be thick, with a cookie dough consistency.
- Using a spatula or your hands, sprinkle the batter on top of the peaches and spread out a little bit. It doesn't have to be perfect, or cover all of the peaches.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the crust is slightly golden and the peaches are bubbling. Remove from the oven and serve warm with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream or coconut whipped cream. Enjoy!
- How to peel peaches: To easily peel peaches, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Turn off the heat once boiling, and immerse the peaches in the water for about 10 seconds, then remove them and place them in an ice bath, or run them under cold water. Then the peels will come off so easily.
- For gluten free, replace the flour with a gluten free flour blend.
- To make this for a large crowd, double and make in a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
