One of my favorite things to do is to bake seasonally. There’s nothing better than whipping up a dessert that uses whatever happens to be in season. Granted, some months are much more exciting than others, but that just means extra desserts are made then!
Obviously, the warmer months are my preference, thanks to the availability of all the stone fruits and berries. While I do know frozen berries are available year round, there’s something special about having them fresh and at an affordable price. While I love using fruits in cookies and cakes, my favorite way to use them is in a cobbler.
I’ve been meaning to share a keto blueberry cobbler recipe for quite some time. It’s been my go-to whenever I find myself with an abundance of blueberries. It’s the kind of dessert you’d make to feed a crowd or when your craving comfort food.
Now, this cobbler may look incredibly fancy, but I promise you it is so simple to make. No grains and no sugar are needed, but you’d never tell. The filing texture is gooey and smooth and the biscuit topping is fluffy and crumbly. It’s sweet, buttery, and loaded with blueberries.
I had some friends over for dinner the other night and served this for dessert and NO ONE believed me when I said that it was low carb- They thought I bought heat and serve cobbler!
Ingredients to make a keto blueberry cobbler
For the filling
- Blueberries– Either frozen or fresh blueberries can be used.
- Granulated sweetener of choice– I used erythritol, but both allulose and monk fruit sweetener can be used.
- Cinnamon– Gives a subtle but lovely cinnamon flavor throughout.
- Xanthan gum– Thickens the filling, without adding any extra carbs.
- Lemon juice– To balance out the sweetness and works with the xanthan gum to maintain thickness.
For the biscuit topping
- Almond flour– Blanched almond flour is preferred, but almond meal can also be used.
- Baking powder– Gives a little rise and fluffiness to the topping.
- Keto brown sugar– A sugar free brown sugar alternative. If you don’t any on hand, you can use erythritol or monk fruit sweetener.
- Granulated sweetener of choice– To balance out the keto brown sugar. I used erythritol.
- Egg– Room temperature egg.
- Butter– Softened and unsalted butter. Dairy free butter can also be used.
- Heavy cream– Lightens up the texture and balances the butter to ensure it doesn’t become dense or crumbly.
