Keto Peach Cobbler is a delicious low-carb dessert that captures the classic flavors of a traditional peach cobbler without the added sugars and excessive carbohydrates. This recipe uses keto-friendly ingredients to keep the net carb count low while providing a warm and satisfying dessert experience.
While it may not have the exact taste of a traditional peach cobbler made with wheat flour and sugar, the almond flour version offers a wonderful low carb and gluten-free alternative.
This easy keto peach cobbler recipe made with almond flour has a unique and delicious taste. The almond flour crust lends a nutty and slightly sweet flavor that complements the natural sweetness of the peaches perfectly. It has a slightly crisp texture on the top while being tender and crumbly underneath, creating a delightful contrast.

Are peaches keto?
Peaches can be enjoyed on a keto diet, but they should be consumed in moderation due to their carbohydrate content. Peaches are relatively high in natural sugars, primarily fructose, which can impact ketosis if consumed in large quantities.
Here's the approximate nutritional information for one medium-sized peach (about 150 grams):
Carbohydrates: 13 grams
Dietary Fiber: 2 grams
Sugars: 11 grams
Net Carbs (Total Carbs minus Fiber): 11 grams
To stay within the typical daily carb limit on a keto diet (usually around 20-50 grams of net carbs), you need to be mindful of your peach consumption and track your total carbohydrate intake from other sources throughout the day.
If you choose to include peaches in your keto diet, consider having smaller portions and balancing them with other low-carb foods. Additionally, it's a good idea to enjoy them as part of a meal that contains healthy fats and proteins, which can help stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce the impact on ketosis.
Gather your simple ingredients to make this low-carb peach cobbler.
- Peaches - use fresh, not canned peaches.
- Sweetener - use a low carb sweetener. We used brown monk fruit sweetener for the additional flavor, but any other sweetener such as Swerve or allulose will work fine.
- Almond flour - we have not tried with with coconut flour but if you make that swap you may need to increase the egg and butter quantity.
How to make keto peach cobbler
This is a great keto dessert that you can adapt to any other low carb friendly fruit.
Beat butter and sweetener, then add remaining ingredients.
Place sliced fresh peaches in a baking dish and sprinkle with sweetener.
Spoon the cobbler topping on top and bake.
Serve and enjoy.
- Choose Ripe and Sweet Peaches: Use ripe and sweet peaches for the best flavor. If fresh peaches are not in season or not available, you can use frozen peaches as well. Just make sure to thaw and drain them before using.
- Adjust Sweetness to Your Taste: Different brands of keto-friendly sweeteners may vary in sweetness, so adjust the amount according to your preference. Taste the peach mixture before baking and add more sweetener if needed.
- Don't Overmix the Topping: When making the almond flour topping, be careful not to overmix it. Overmixing could result in a dense and doughy topping.
- Add a Touch of Spice: Consider adding a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger to the peach filling.
- Use a Glass or Ceramic Baking Dish: Glass or ceramic baking dishes distribute heat more evenly than metal pans, which can help ensure the cobbler cooks uniformly.
- Avoid Peaches with Excess Liquid: If using frozen peaches, be sure to drain them well to remove any excess liquid. This will prevent the cobbler from becoming too watery during baking.
- Let It Rest: Once the cobbler is out of the oven, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the peach filling to set slightly and makes it easier to serve.
If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat individual portions in the microwave or oven before enjoying. We also enjoy this cobbler cold!
