Cinnamon Apple Cobbler
The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required and understand the steps and timings involved.
Traditional cobblers are topped with biscuit dough (similar to that of British scones), which are made with wheat flour (not gluten-free).
So I’ve got a delicious gluten-free cinnamon apple cobbler recipe to share so that those with gluten intolerance can enjoy this autumnal dessert.
The topping is made very simply with almond flour, melted butter, and maple syrup, making it a gluten-free dessert.
You can eat apple cobbler warm from the oven on its own, or add some whipped cream, pouring cream, custard (if you’re in the UK) Crème Anglaise (if you’re not!), or ice cream (try our easy recipe for No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream!).
Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.
It does not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.
- Fresh Produce – Apples
- Dairy – Unsalted Butter
- Ground Cinnamon
- Pure Maple Syrup – buy the good, 100% stuff, anything less is just made up of flavorings and corn syrup.
- Almond Flour – essentially, very finely ground almonds.
Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
