Sweet, juicy peaches and a cinnamon flavored biscuit topping are combined to make a delicious cobbler dessert in your cast iron skillet.  Nothing says it's still summer than a scoop of melting ice cream over a fresh from the oven fruit cobbler!


Units Scale


  • 1 cup almond flour, sifted
  • 2 TB coconut flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 TB granulated sugar substitute
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 TB softened butter
  • 2 TB heavy cream
  • 2 TB sour cream
  • 1 egg


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar substitute ( I used Swerve)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 TB lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. xanthan gum (for thickening the syrup)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 barely ripe peaches, cut into slices ( I chose to peel half and leave the skin on for the other).


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Make the biscuit topping-combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Mix in the butter, creams, egg until fully combined. Set aside.
  4. Make the cobbler syrup- in a cast iron skillet mix the sugar, salt, water, coconut flour, xanthan gum.  Stir until syrup begins to simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes until it is thickened.
  5. Add peaches, spices and vanilla.  Stir until peaches are fully coated with the syrup, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Drop 2 TB of dough onto peach mixture in cast iron skillet.  You should get about 8 biscuits.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Test with toothpick or wooden skewer to make sure biscuits are cooked all the way through.  You can lightly cover with foil and cook a few minutes longer if needed.


*To peel or not to peel...I have made this cobbler with the skin on and also peeled.  I prefer without, hubby likes the skin.  

**The cobbler also is best when the peaches are not too ripe.  You don't want them to get mushy in the oven.  I believe peaches are ripe when you can just about smell their lovely fragrance.  You shouldn't be able to leave an indentation on them when you press down on the skin.

*** Keto Peach Cobbler will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

****This cobbler dessert is a bit higher in carbs for some who are following a strict keto diet.  In order to lower the carb count, I would make the serving size a bit smaller.  Peaches are one of the fruits that are lower in carbs, but they still have sugar in them.  My thoughts are that this is an occasional treat that I would adjust my macros for the day.  It is worth it!
