Picture this: a warm scoop of peaches covered in a biscuit-like topping with some vanilla ice cream melting on top…
Dessert doesn’t get much better than that!
And then you go to make peach cobbler and realize that the ingredients are not ingredients that make me feel my best. Lots of sugar, white flour, butter, etc. just don’t make my body feel energetic and satisfied.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for desserts made with those ingredients, but only on rare occasions. And to be honest, I know how miz those desserts are going to make my stomach feel and make head hurt that I don’t even want to eat them.
Sometimes I want a sweet treat that isn’t going to make me feel awful thirty minutes after enjoying it.
So I went on a search for a peach cobbler that had ingredients that make me feel a little more nourished, and I found this one. I changed it up a little bit to my personal preferences.
I find that adding lemon juice and some extra cinnamon really brighten the peaches, and almond extract is one of my favorite additions to recipes to give that sweet flavor without a bunch of added sugar.
Despite all the coconut ingredients in the recipe, this doesn’t actually have much of a coconut flavor. Seriously.
It does not taste like a super-coconutty peach cobbler.
And this is coming from a non-coconut fan. I like a little bit of coconut but not a lot, and I love this Coconut Peach Cobbler.
Also, if you don’t have coconut milk, you can use regular milk. I tested it with 2% milk and it worked well. You could also substitute butter for the coconut oil if desired. Obviously, this would make the recipe no longer dairy free.
To be clear, this is dessert. But it’s dessert that is a little kinder to my body. And it’s a dessert that is really delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some yogurt or some whipped cream.
My personal preference is vanilla ice cream, so the ice cream melts into the peaches.
In fact, I had to make this peach cobbler again just to edit the video and the recipe because I needed it again in my life 😉
