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 assumed cobbler was similar enough to a crisp or crumble, like my favorite caramel apple crumble, or this amazing vegan peach crisp. I didn’t realize that cobblers has a significantly different topping to a crisp. Where a crisp is far more crumbly, and usually based in oats, and cobbler topping has a different texture altogether.

Where a crisp or crumble recipe is crumbly, the cobbler topping is soft, cakey, and sweet. A perfect topping for the sweet, cinnamon-scented berry filling.

I’ve become totally intrigued by the biscuity, cakey top of a cobbler. So, I set out to create my own perfect (and healthier) cobbler topping.

What’s in the cobbler topping?

We keep it simple with this blueberry & blackberry cobbler topping! The ingredients you’ll need are:

These ingredients create a thick batter, which tops off the filling: a sweet and spiced combination of fresh blueberries and fresh blackberries.

How do we make the blackberry blueberry cobbler filling?

It’s very simple! We use a combination of blueberries and blackberries for the filling. You’ll toss the berries with maple syrup, tapioca flour, and cinnamon. As it cooks, it bubbles down into a thick, saucy, and delicious filling.

I used fresh berries for both, but frozen berries can absolutely be used as well. You may want to thaw and drain them before using so the filling isn’t too liquidy!

Do I need to make small cobblers?

It’s entirely up to you! I did minis for my family because they’re super cute, and by dividing up the filling and batter, everyone can devour their own cobbler. But if you prefer, you can absolutely bake the entire cobbler recipe in one baking dish.

As for how delicious this blackberry blueberry cobbler recipe is…the blueberries and blackberries work together super well. The blueberries are high in pectin and break down a lot, providing thickness and sweetness. The blackberries add a burst of tartness and texture.

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 blackberry blueberry cobblers warm. Add a scoop of dairy-free ice cream or a dollop of coconut cream on top for the ultimate treat! Enjoy :)
