Vegan Pumpkin Cobbler

Being that it’s already December, I honestly thought I was over all things pumpkin lol. Believe it or not, for some reason this recipe has been ranking higher and higher on EDS out of hundreds of recipes. Since this recipe dates back to 2016, I just knew.. 

We had to remake this staple vegan Pumpkin Cobbler

As a souther bell, I’ve had endless “cobbler”. You can make cobbler that’s fruit and biscuits, or more cake like, the options are truly up to your preferences. What remains to be true about all cobblers, is that they are just so easy! It’s simply a handful of ingredients thrown together, it’s got moisture, and is best served hot with ice cream. 

I sometimes questioned why this recipe was highly ranked, but it all makes sense once you break it down! 

It’s quick, easy, affordable, a handful of ingredients, moist, made with coconut oil, you can use coconut sugar or brown sugar, the cake is sweetened with maple syrup, packs a ton of real pumpkin, pairs seamlessly with vanilla ice cream and my caramel, is perf for fall, is a pumpkin lovers dream, and is non vegan approved!

If you love no fuss pumpkin desserts, you need to try this recipe for vegan Pumpkin Cobbler!

Why this recipe is great: 



Aesthetic appeal

Perf for fall 

Minimal ingredients 

Made with coconut oil

All you need, is just a few ingredients!

  1. Can this be made with regular sugar and milk, it sounds amazing and I have fresh pumpkin puree I need to use up.

  2. Hi! This looks delicious but I have a nut allergy. Is there a substitute for the pecans? I know the recipe uses 1/2 c which seems like a lot to just omit – but let me know if that would work too. thanks!

    1. Hi Kiana, You’re welcome to substitute with a seed versus a nut! Let me know how it turns out!

  3. This looks delicious! Can it be frozen after baked? Thanks!

    LOVE this! I’ve made it twice and will be doubling the recipe next time to put it in a 13×9. Thank you!

  5. If recipe is doubled, should I change the size of the pan to a 16 in pan??

  6. This looks so good! What a great treat to make friends in the fall!

  7. We really enjoyed this recipe! Because it makes its own sauce we found the coconut caramel to be unnecessary. I guess we’ll use the leftover caramel for pancakes or waffles! It makes a lot! Great fall dessert!

  8. This is delicious! We made it with gluten free flour–a combo of Bob’s 1 to 1 and King Arthur’s GF flour and we used 1/3 cup coconut sugar for the topping. We prefer it without the caramel sauce because it was too rich for us. Thanks for sharing!
