Grab These Ingredients
Here are the simple ingredients for this gluten-free blueberry cobbler. Most are pantry staples, so they're easy and affordable to find at the grocery store. Jump down to the recipe card for exact measurements.
- Fresh berries: blueberries and blackberries are in season right now and you might even be able to snag them on sale at Kroger depending on when you're making it! I splurge for the organic berries.
- Lemons: add lemon juice and lemon zest to the blueberry filling to brighten it up.
- Maple syrup and coconut sugar: these are the two sweeteners you'll need to make this paleo blueberry cobbler recipe.
- Tapioca flour: this is used as a thickener in the recipe similar to cornstarch and helps thicken up the berries and their juices. You can also use arrowroot starch.
- Almond flour: it's the base of the soft cobbler topping with the cinnamon crust. I don't recommend swapping this out for coconut flour or gluten-free flour because they have different structures and absorb different amounts of liquid.
- Dairy-free milk: we used coconut milk but you could use almond milk or cashew milk.
- Coconut oil: these two are the wet ingredients for the recipe and help bind the cobbler topping together.

How to Make Paleo Berry Cobbler
The full printable recipe is below, but let’s walk through the steps so you have a clear idea of what to expect when making this easy paleo blueberry cobbler recipe.
Start by making the blackberry blueberry filling. In a large bowl, mix together the berries with maple syrup, tapioca flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, and cinnamon.
Pour the berry mixture into a greased baking dish.
In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, coconut milk, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and 1½ tablespoons of coconut sugar in a medium bowl and mix until smooth.
Dollop by the spoonful on top of the blueberries.
Combine 1½ tablespoons of sugar and ½ tablespoon of cinnamon together in a small bowl then sprinkle over the flour mixture.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cobbler topping is set and golden brown. Serve it with your favorite dairy-free vanilla ice cream!
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. This recipe also freezes well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight and reheat in the oven at 350°F until warmed through. Cover with foil to avoid it over-browning.
To make and freeze in advance, allow the baked cobbler to cool completely. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.

Needed to double the breading topping for a bigger bowl and didn’t have blackberries so I used apples. Ate it for a full week. Delicious
Do you think I could use strawberries or double the blueberries if I don't want to use blackberries?
Molly Thompson says
Definitely! You can use any mix of berries!
I used banana instead of the blueberries, Andrea maple syrup instead of the coconut sugar. Was very yummy!
