Homemade Peach Cobbler

I love everything to do with my slow cooker in the summer. Since moving into a house with a tiny kitchen I’ve come to realize that even the shortest recipe in the oven heats up my kitchen to sauna level, even when it’s not that warm outside. Yes….it’s going to be a long summer.

This simple Peach Cobbler recipe is one of our favorites year-round. In the summer and fall, it can be made with fresh fruit and in the winter and spring, it can be made with home-canned peaches. This time when I made it I actually used frozen peaches and they worked well also.

What I love about this slow cooker cobbler recipe is that it’s so simple and only takes a few cheap ingredients but it makes an excellent dessert for your meal. We also make this recipe with pears or a mix of peaches and pears, that tastes amazing also!

What You Need:

  • 1 quart of Canned Peaches (drained) or about 2-3 cups of diced peaches
  • 1 cup Flour (can use Gluten Free Flour)
  • 1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar (or turbinado)
  • 1/2 cup melted Butter

Simple Homemade Peach Cobbler Recipe

Drain the juices from the diced peaches. In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and oats.

In your slow cooker, pour the peaches for the bottom layer. (You do want to leave a small amount of juice in the peaches so it won’t stick to the pot) On the top of the peaches, pour the flour mixture.

On top of the flour layer, pour the melted butter. I always poke some spots in the flour with a fork so a bit of the butter drains down but don’t mix it in. Cook on a low heat setting for 3-4 hours or until bubbly.

You could top this with a little whipped cream if you like. This cobbler is best served warm.

Simple Homemade Peach Cobbler


  • 1 quart of Canned Peaches drained or about 2-3 cups of diced peaches
  • 1 cup Flour can use Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar or turbinado
  • 1/2 cup melted Butter


  1. Drain the excess juice from the diced peaches. You'll want to leave just a little bit in so it does not stick.
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and oats.
  3. Pour the peaches in your slow cooker for the bottom layer.
  4. Pour the flour mixture on the top of the peaches.
  5. Pour the melted butter on top of the flour layer. I always poke some spots in the flour with a fork so a bit of the butter drains down but don't mix it in.
  6. Cook on a low heat setting for 3-4 hours or until bubbly.

I just love this dessert because with very little effort on your part you can have a delicious dessert on the table! I usually start this dessert after lunch so it’s ready in time for dinner if it gets done sooner than I expected it can just be turned on warm until ready to serve. This recipe makes enough to serve 4, you can double it for a larger amount of people but you will want to use a larger sized crockpot so the layers don’t get too thick.

  1. Mmm! peach cobbler is a favorite of mine. My husband does not like peaches, so I hardly ever make it. And I agree with you, I love my crock pot. Keeps the house from heating up so much. I use mine several times a week.

  2. During peach season I make up a recipe very much like yours and freeze them without cooking. They can go straight from the freezer to baking and taste just like fresh. I have not tried using the crock pot so I cannot say how that would work. I love being able to pull one out in the winter and have a summer tasting dessert.

  3. Found this at the Motivational Monday Link party — and pinned it! This looks like a recipe I already have – but better!! I can’t wait to try it.

  4. Time to start using the canned peaches from last year that are lingering. I always put off using my goods for fear of running out. Then I have to hurry and use reminding myself and kids that I need my jars emptied! Never fear 5 kids can go through 40 quarts of peaches in the blink of an eye. Love your blog. Just found it last week.

  5. That looks incredibly delicious, and I never imagined that you could cook a cobbler in a crock pot. I am Pinning this for later!

  14. Thanks for posting. I cannot wait to try this recipe. I just came across your blog. You are an inspiration to many, I am sure.
    I grew up in South Dakota. I now live in Canada.

  15. I just put some peaches in the crock, poured melted coconut oil & stevia glycerite over and topped with chopped nuts. Heat thru a few hrs and yummm. Grainfree and sugarfree. Let’s the flavor of the fruit shine thru 🙂
    Im trying this with frozen blueberries next. They release a lot of juice tho so I’ll have to play with it.

  16. Can anyone tell me how many pounds of peaches (approximately) it takes to yield, say, 4 cups of sliced or diced peeled peaches? Also, can nectarines be substituted for peaches, & do they have to be peeled as well? If so, would you use a very sharp potato peeler or a paring knife? Just found this site & am really enjoying it. Thanks a bunch for the recipes & ideas!!!!

    1. You can peel or not peel…depends on the fruit you use and how your family likes it. We do both and I use a potato peeler. And it’s probably around 3-4 pounds of peaches to equal 4 cups. You could use nectarines although you may want to add a bit of sugar to the fruit as they would be a bit more sour.

  17. I can’t wait to try this in the crock pot – might have the hubby put it together for dessert tonight!
