Let’s discuss the four healthy ingredients for this easy blueberry cobbler recipe.

Ingredients for Single-Serve Blueberry Cobbler:

Fresh Blueberries: The reason we’re all here! Fresh berries get baked to jammy perfection with an amazing biscuit topping. If you love blueberry desserts, you’ll get a kick out of this simple recipe.

Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour: Used for the cobbler topping and to thicken the blueberry mixture, we use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. Pick a blend you’ve used in the past and love!

I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour or Pamela’s Artisan Blend Gluten-Free Flour. Any blend will work as long as it is designed to be a 1:1 replacement for regular all-purpose flour.

If you don’t add flour to the blueberry filling, it will be very watery and won’t thicken up. If you’re okay with this, feel free to skip the flour for the filling. You can also replace it with a little cornstarch. 

Coconut Oil: The fat portion of the cobbler topping, a little coconut oil makes the biscuit dough moist, rich, and tastes buttery without the need for butter.

I add coconut oil to the fruit filling too in order to bring it richness and a creamy texture to the delicious blueberry cobbler.

If you aren’t dairy-free, replace the coconut oil with two tablespoons of melted butter in the topping and 1 to 3 teaspoons of melted unsalted butter in the blueberry cobbler filling.

Pure Maple Syrup: Used to sweeten the blueberry crumble, pure maple syrup keeps this easy recipe refined sugar-free. 

Sea Salt: A pinch of sea salt enhances the flavor of the cobbler, making all the flavors shine through. Without salt, baked goods taste flat, so be sure to add it in.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • You can replace the pure maple syrup with brown sugar, white sugar, or coconut sugar if you’d prefer. If you go this route, add a little additional coconut oil (or butter) to the topping mixture to offset the loss of liquid.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of lemon zest and lemon juice to the gluten-free crumble topping for a lemon blueberry dessert.
  • If you have trouble finding fresh blueberries, you can use frozen blueberries. If you do so, add a little additional flour to the filling so that you don’t end up with an overly syrupy blueberry bottom. Frozen blueberries tend to hold extra liquid, which necessitates more flour for thickening. 
  • If serving more than one individual, you can scale up the recipe by doubling or tripling it and use individual ramekins or mugs. 
  • For a lower fat recipe, replace the melted coconut oil with almond milk, oat milk, or cashew milk. Just note the topping won’t taste as rich. 
  • ​Add a pinch of cinnamon to the fresh blueberry cobbler if you’re like me and you love cinnamon in your baked treats.
  • Stir 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the gluten-free cobbler mixture if you have it on hand. 
  • Swap the blueberries out for your favorite berries. If using larger berries like blackberries, chop them into small pieces ahead of time. 

Now that we’ve covered the four simple ingredients for this easy blueberry cobbler, let’s make it!

How to Make Single-Serve Blueberry Cobbler:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Transfer the ingredients for the blueberry filling (blueberries, flour, coconut oil, pure maple syrup and a pinch of salt) to an oven-safe ramekin or bowl and mix well until combined. I use an 8-ounce ramekin, which is the perfect size for this recipe.

In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together the ingredients for the cobbler topping (both the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients) until a thick dough forms.

Transfer the topping to the ramekin on top of the blueberries. You can leave the mixture crumbly (as I do), or you can press the dough into a biscuit shape.

Place the ramekin on top of a baking sheet (in case the blueberries bubble over during the baking process).

Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, or until the topping is slightly golden brown and the blueberry filling is bubbly.

The exact cooking time depends on the altitude at which you bake (lower elevations require less baking time), and whether all of the ingredients are at room temperature or chilled before going into the oven. 

Allow the gluten-free blueberry cobbler to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. This allows the ramekin time to cool down and also allows the blueberry filling to thicken up.

If desired, serve this single-serve blueberry cobbler with extra blueberries, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or yogurt on top.

Enjoy!

If you have leftovers, cover the ramekin in plastic wrap or transfer the leftovers to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 7 days.

This small blueberry cobbler is a great recipe for those times you’re craving something sweet yet health conscious and also don’t want leftovers.

This is perfect for my small family. But wanted to know if you have similar recipe for, say, an 8x8? I have a family get-together coming up and several are GF or no sugar...this would be terrific, but I don't have that many ramekins! :-)

Thank you for your talent and willingness to share!

What can be used in place of maple syrup? I'm not a fan.

Hi Stacy! You can use any granulated sweeter you like. I would add a little additional oil to offset the loss of liquid in the cobbler topping if it seems like it needs it :) Enjoy!

Can you use a couple ramkins? I have to find mine to see if they are 8oz or not.

If need be, you could separate the ingredients between two ramekins. I would keep an eye on the bake time, as they will take slightly less time to bake :)

Can you microwave this with comparable results? Summer is approaching and wanted to avoid firing up the oven for a single serve treat.

I totally get that! I've been reluctant to use my oven, myself. I haven't tested the recipe using the microwave yet, but I imagine it can be done. I just googled a microwave cobbler recipe and it calls for 1.5 minutes of microwaving. I'll swing back to report my results once I do try it, and in the meantime, let me know if you do as well! xo
