I grew up loving peaches. We would get fresh South Carolina peaches off the side of the road on our way to the beach in the summer. As a kid, I would take the peaches, peel them, and sprinkle them with sugar before I ate them. Sometimes I would dip them in sugar. Because, childhood.

Peach Cobbler is a Southern staple. I grew up loving peach cobbler at a much simpler time in my life where I was not aware of my gluten allergy. Cobbler is a Southern take on a pie, where the crust cooks up through the dish and the top is filled with butter and sugar. Usually brown sugar. For this dressed up version, I used less sugar and only organic sugar cane. I also added a tablespoon of dried lavender flowers, which adds a nice balanced, floral note to the natural sweetness of the peaches. I served this cobbler with coconut milk-based vanilla bean ice cream, and garnished with dried lavender. A Colorado-twist on a Southern classic. The lavender is from my rooftop garden in Denver, and the peaches are local to Palisade, Colorado.

Now thanks to Bob’s Red Mill, I have been able to make a gluten free cobbler with minimal sugar that really shines the flavors of the peaches. And peaches deserve to shine.

This recipe is gluten free, corn free and soy free. This recipe does contain sugar and butter, because that’s what cobbler’s are all about.

Cheers to peaches, lavender and gluten free sweets.

I love Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour for this recipe. I also used their GF Steel Cut Oats. Hain is my favorite baking powder because it doesn't have corn starch in it.

I harvested lavender from my garden a few days earlier and let the bundle dry. You can also buy dried lavender if you prefer.

Gluten Free Lavender Peach Cobbler

Makes 1 pie.

For Filling

  • 5 peaches
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill GF flour
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers, crumbled.
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup ghee or grass fed butter

For Topping

  • 1/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1/4 cup steel oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg

Preheat oven to 350. Melt a small amount of butter in a pie dish. Just enough to coat the dish. Peel and cut your peaches, then set aside. Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda together in a mixing bowl. Add in ghee or butter and mix the batter with a fork. Once mixed, add in the lavender and almond or coconut milk and stir well. You are now ready to assemble. Pour batter into pie dish, and then place peaches on top. For your topping mix the ingredients together and pour on top of peaches. Place the dish in the oven and put a pan or aluminum foil underneath to catch any over flow. *A good cobbler will overflow just a little so it’s best to save yourself the clean up. Bake for 45 minutes until golden brown. Once your cobbler is finished baking, let it cool until it is room temperature. Serve with coconut milk vanilla ice cream.
