  • 1 cup almond meal/flour packed
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond milk + 2 teaspoons lemon juice or apple cider vinegar room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 8 medium to large plums black or red, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond meal, rice flour, baking powder, salt, and two teaspoons coconut sugar. Add almond milk and melted coconut oil and stir until fully combined. Set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, toss sliced plums with 1/2 cup coconut sugar, cinnamon, and arrowroot powder until evenly incorporated. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish.
  4. Using a spoon, drop biscuit dough (about 5-6 biscuits) over plum mixture. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until biscuits look done and golden brown and plums are bubbling. For the last 10 minutes of baking, you may need to loosely cover top of cobbler with foil so that it can continue to bake without burning.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or coconut whipped cream.
