Sweet, baked blueberries topped with a buttery, moist and crispy keto almond flour biscuit. This keto cobbler recipe contains only 5.6g net carbs per serve, it is gluten-free, dairy-free, and freezes very well for later! So let’s see how to make this easy keto dessert from scratch using fresh or frozen blueberries.
There is a lot of confusion between cobbler and crisp recipes. While both recipes rely on a baked layer of fruits, their toppings are very different. A cobbler is topped with a thick buttery biscuit that stays soft in the center and crisps on top. On the contrary, a crisp or crumble is topped with a dry crunchy crisp that resembles cookie crumble pieces. Therefore a keto cobbler recipe is a low-carb dessert made of one layer of baked juicy berries and topped with a buttery, moist and crispy biscuit. The biscuit is usually made of low-carb flours, egg, butter, cream or milk but it doesn’t involve crunchy nuts like in a keto crisp.
A low-carb blueberry cobbler recipe is one of the easiest old-fashioned dessert recipes to serve to your family with no doubt that everyone will ask for more, even non-keto eaters. Let me share with you my tips and tricks to turn this healthy blueberry cobbler recipe into the BEST keto blueberry cobbler recipe.
You can make the low-carb blueberry cobbler using fresh or frozen blueberries. If you are using frozen blueberries they will release more juice to the recipe and therefore it’s recommended to add more thickening agents to prevent the biscuit from soaking in the berry juice. Otherwise, thaw the blueberries before using in the recipe.
The best blueberry cobbler recipes have a juicy, jelly-like layer of blueberry. In order to achieve this with no cornstarch as most classic high-carb cobbler recipes, you need to add a keto thickening agent like whole psyllium husk or xanthan gum or gelatin. The purpose of these ingredients is to soak up the liquid from the berries and create a jelly-like texture. It also prevents a runny, mushy blueberry layer. Other delicious additions to the blueberry layer are lemon juice and sugar-free crystal sweeteners like erythritol or monk fruit stevia crystal blend.
To make the biscuit of your keto cobbler recipe you need to play with the flours. The combination of coconut flour and almond flour is a must to create a slightly crumbly, moist biscuit. Let’s see all the other ingredients you need to make this almond flour cobbler:
You don’t have to prebake the blueberries for this low-carb blueberry cobbler. First, mix the blueberries with lemon juice, psyllium husk, and erythritol and lay evenly all around the pan. Then, use a cookie scoop to evenly scoop out the cobbler biscuit batter all around the dish. Finally, use a spoon to roughly flatten and spread each almond flour dollop of biscuit batter onto the fruit. It is important to spread the biscuit or the dollops won’t fully bake in the center resulting in a very moist and fragile biscuit.
You can use any glass or ceramic baking dish to bake a cobbler but not a removable bottom pan or the juice from the berries will run out from the pan. However, a very important thing to make the best cobbler recipe is to use the same baking dish size recommended in the recipe. In fact, if your layer of fruit is thinner, due to a larger baking dish, the fruits will bake faster than the top resulting in undercooked topping and mushy fruits.
You can store the cobbler in the fridge for up to 3 days. Simply wrap the top of the baking dish with a piece of plastic wrap. Rewarm individually for 10-15 minutes at 350F (180C ) or for 25 minutes for a larger portion.
Yes, you can freeze your keto cobbler. The best is to freeze the recipe in single-serve portions and in individual oven proof-ramekins. This way, when your sweet craving comes, you can pop the frozen cobbler directly in a warm oven (180C/350F) and rewarm for 10-15 minutes. It will taste as good as a fresh cobbler recipe.
A reasonable size of keto blueberry cobbler is a service of 1/3 cup per person. While it may sound small, this recipe is highly fulfilling as it contains 12g fat and 3.4g fiber per serve. Plus, keep in mind that you will serve this portion with a zero-carb topping, that’s the best part! I recommend you add 1/3 cup of zero-carb topping to each serve for a cozy comforting keto dessert. My favorite zero-carb toppings that I love to sweetened with a touch of vanilla stevia drops are:
