This Blackberry + Blueberry Cobbler is healthy enough for breakfast, but sweet + delicious enough to be dessert! These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.I haven’t dabbled in cobblers too much. In fact, this is somehow the first time I’ve ever posted a cobbler recipe on this site. What I have been doing for the past five years?!

I think for a while I just assumed cobbler was similar enough to a crisp or crumble and never needed too much individual exploring, because crisps had already earned top spot on my favorite dessert list. And logically, that should have earned it a place on my list of things to try long ago.

These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.Finally, recently, I started seeing some swoon-worthy, beautiful fruit-filled cobbler recipes floating around the internet. Totally intruiged by the more biscuit-y, cakey top – way more unlike a crisp than I had realized – I set out to create my own perfect (and healthier) cobbler topping.

Playing around with a mix of almond flour, tapioca flour, and baking powder for a bit of fluffiness, I created a pretty bomb (if I do say so myself) cobbler topping. Even better? By using non-dairy milk and coconut oil, it’s kept totally gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo-friendly, and vegan.

These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.A bit of coconut sugar and a splash of vanilla extract are used for flavor. These ingredients create a thick batter, which tops off the filling: a combination of fresh blueberries and fresh blackberries. The berries are tossed with maple syrup, tapioca flour, and cinnamon. The simple approach to the filling creates a lightly sweetened berry filling with a thick sauce and fresh flavor.

The entire cobbler recipe can baked in a small baking dish, but I recommend splitting it up into three or four small ramekins and baking the cobblers individually. By dividing up the filling and batter, everyone can devour their own cobbler and enjoy the perfect filling to cobbler topping ratio.

These gluten-free, Paleo, and vegan cobblers have a crisp and gooey topping.The blueberries and blackberries work together super well. The blueberries are high in pectin and break down a lot, providing thickness and sweetness, while the blackberries add a burst of tartness. The batter on top puffs up in the oven, becoming a fluffy, biscuit-y top with a crunchy crust made from a sprinkle of coconut sugar and cinnamon right on top.

I recommend devouring one of these warm – add a scoop of dairy-free ice cream or a dollop of coconut cream on top for the ultimate treat! Enjoy :)

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
For the cobbler topping
  • ⅓ cup almond flour
  • ⅓ cup tapioca flour
  • 1½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used almond)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar + ½ tablespoon cinnamon, to sprinkle on top
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a small baking dish or three small ramekins by greasing with a bit of coconut oil and setting on a baking sheet.
  2. In a bowl, combine the blackberries, blueberries, maple syrup, tapioca flour, and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Pour the fruit into the prepared pans, dividing evenly if using more than one ramekin.
  3. In a different bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, coconut oil, non-dairy milk, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon coconut sugar. Mix until smooth and then dollop over the berry mixture.
  4. Combine the remaining tablespoon coconut sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter.
  5. Bake for 25 - 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the pastry comes out clean. Serve with dairy-free ice cream!

  5. I admit that crisps are my go-to and that I haven’t messed around with cobblers much either. This cobbler looks perfect with that topping that looks so tender, and the blackberry-blueberry combination sounds delicious!

  8. What a fabulous looking cobbler Rachel! Glad you jumped in and tried one. Cobblers are always so easy and the perfect summer dessert. Or breakfast maybe?! Can’t wait to try your version.

  9. This cobbler looks fantastic.
    I would love to try this one but we are in winter here in Australia. Do you think it would work with frozen berries?

  10. I can never resist crisps either but cobblers are another weakness of mine. These are beautiful, Rachel! I love that it’s gluten free and vegan and the blackberry and blueberry combo is totally making my mouth water!

  11. Cobblers are so fun this time of year! I love fresh berries and these look so pretty and delicious! Also, I love that you made them single serving! SO fun! Hope that you’re having a great weekend!
    xoxo Cailee!

  12. Delicious, I’ve actually never had cobbler. I too thought it was similar to a crisp or something. The photos are GORGEOUS! Love how rich blueberries are in color.

  13. I haven’t made a cobbler in forever and you are reminding me how much I love them! I’ve been wanting to eat all the fresh berries I’ve been seeing in the store lately and this cobbler is the perfect way to enjoy them :)

  14. The cobbler topping looks absolutely perfect! I looks like your experiments with flour combinations really paid off :)

    This was absolutely delish. My husband and I both loved it. Next time, we will cut way back on the cinnamon … or else eliminate it all together. Thanks for an awesome recipe.

  17. This cobbler was pretty awful. The pastry sank down into the blackberries and when cooked was gooey and grey and looked very unappetizing, even though I cooked it an extra 10 min. The blackberry mixture was not sweet enough.

    • So sorry you had trouble, MG! Wish I could help diagnose what went wrong – the pastry should have maintained it’s thickness on top of the berries. Sweetness can definitely vary based on blueberries, so if your berries were tart that could’ve been why you didn’t find it sweet enough.

  18. Hi Rachel, I don’t know if I’ve commented before. It’s not easy to find a grain-free dough recipe without eggs… thank you so much for this. Made it with nectarines, plums from my tree, and wild frozen blueberries to fill up the dish. So delicious! My hubs and I are eating super clean and paleo-ish these days, so this was a lovely treat for the 4th of July weekend.

    • Hi Stephanie, thanks so much for your comment and feedback. I’m so glad you enjoyed the cobbler – the fruits you used in the filling sound so delicious. Jealous of your plum tree!

  19. Mary Turner says:

    I just made two cobbler recipes with blackberries. Both were good! However, I must say that this one was the best! Loved the sweetness and cinnamon flavor added a “wow” factor for me. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Hello
    I’m excited to try this cobbler!! It just came out of the oven. I made it with fresh marionberries!! One question? Can this recipe be doubled to make it for guests?

    • Hi Kristy, hope you love it! Jealous of your marionberries – I can’t find them down here in San Diego. You can definitely double the recipe, just increase the pan size (if you’re baking in one pan) and bake for a little bit longer. Enjoy!
