Cardamom Peach Cobbler (gluten-free, vegan*)

A healthier, gluten-free version of the average peach cobbler that is just as sweet, juicy and crispy. Made with fresh organic peaches and a hint of cardamom to give this delicious summer dessert all the flavour.


With summer coming to an end and peach season in full swing, it was only right that I make this Cardamom Peach Cobbler (I obviously had to add cardamom to the mix because you guys know how much I love cardamom)! Only a tiny amount is used - just enough for its distinctive flavour to shine through, which you'll find compliments the sweetness of the peaches so beautifully.


It's a really easy dish to make and the best thing is it requires hardly any washing up. You just need a bowl, a spoon and a small baking dish!


Let's talk ingredients


When it comes to my recipes, I always try and keep them as clean as possible, so this Cardamom Peach Cobbler contains pure and simple ingredients (which you'll hopefully have most of at home already).


Peaches - I like to use fresh ripe peaches (organic too) as they are juicier and sweeter, meaning less sugar needs to be added. I prefer to remove the skin from the peaches, but if you want the cobbler to have extra texture, you can keep it on.


Maple syrup - this is used to add natural sweetness and give the peach base a nice syrupy consistency. You can swap this for raw honey if you prefer.


Ground cinnamon - adds additional natural sweetness to the dish and a greater depth of flavour. Don't skip this!


Ground cardamom - I like to use freshly ground cardamom for a fresher taste and richer aroma (trust me on this). Squeeze the pods to remove the seeds and grind them using a pestle and mortar until the seeds become a fine powder.


Grass-fed butter* - a small amount of butter is used in both the peach mix and the cobbler topping. I always opt for grass-fed as it's a good source of vitamin A and it's higher in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K2. To make the recipe vegan, simply swap the butter for coconut oil or vegan butter.


Rice flour and almond flour - both are used in the cobbler topping. Almond flour gives the dish some nutty undertones but if you have a nut allergy or you don't have any almond flour at home, you can replace it with the same amount of rice flour.


Almond milk - this is used as a binder in the cobbler topping but can be substituted for any nut or dairy-free milk.
