With just the right amount of sweetness and full of bits of juicy fruit, this homemade fresh peach cobbler recipe is a favorite of my family. Served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top, it truly is a little bit of heaven in a bowl!
This time of year fresh peaches are in abundance and the grocery store has organic peaches at prices lower than I have seen all year. (Peaches are on the dirty dozen list so I always try to buy organic.) Our family has been enjoying a bounty of recipes using fresh peaches lately and I have made this homemade fresh peach cobbler recipe several times this summer already.
I originally saw this easy homemade peach cobbler recipe in Taste of Home magazine, but changed it to use more peaches, less sugar, and whole grain flour. Our family was pleased with the results.

Notes about this easy homemade peach cobbler recipe:
When I use whole wheat flour in recipes, I like to use a liquid sweetener like agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup. You can certainly use a dry natural sweetener like sucanat or rapidura, but you may need to add more milk. Recipes using whole wheat flour will absorb more liquid than white flour. You want the consistency of pancake batter.
Fully ripe peaches work best in this easy homemade peach cobbler recipe. Allow the peaches to sit a day or two at room temperature if they are still hard after you buy them. You want the peaches to be soft for maximum sweetness before using in the fresh peach cobbler recipe.
