Cobbler has now been added to my favorite dessert list! This keto blackberry cobbler makes the list because it is super easy to make, guilt free due to the minimal ingredients and I always have berries in the fridge that are on the verge of going bad and need to be used up!
Summer Time Keto Desserts!
Summer time calls for running through sprinklers, rolling around in the grass and eating fruity desserts! I never come in from being out in the sun all day and feel like indulging in a batch of fudgy brownies, although I wouldn’t mind lol. I’m normally in the mood for something lighter and filled with fresh berries, like our:
- Low Carb Raspberry Pie Bars
- Easy Thumbprint Cookies, or
- Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Popsicles (so refreshing!)
How Do You Make Blackberry Cobbler From Scratch?
It’s simpler than you think. I was actually very surprised when I found out cobblers and crisps only require the fruit you are using a couple ingredients you are likely to find in your pantry! This blackberry cobbler will impress you friends with how fresh it tastes and complex in flavors and textures.
The baking of the whole, marinated fruit is really the deal maker here. It breaks down the berries allowing them to release their natural juices. The xanthan gum then comes into play by helping to absorb and thicken those juices so each bite is the perfect pairing of crisp topping and juicy, tender berries. You can’t go wrong with this keto cobbler.
Topping To Blackberry Ratio
I’m going to be honest, the topping is aways my favorite so I like to double time on making it. You can’t ever have enough! That being said, the recipe we’ve given you below is the perfect ratio if you like your topping to blackberry ratio 1 to 1.
If you decide to make extra topping, it can easily be stored in the fridge for weeks and used at a later date! And, if you’re anything like us then you’ll always have a fridge full of berries and be using the topping really soon for a raspberry cobbler *mouth drool*.
How Do You Store Blackberry Cobbler?
There is something that feels really good about eating the cobbler all warm and sizzly right out of the skillet, but unless you have plans to eat it all or you have enough people to serve it up to, there are inevitably going to be leftovers. So, how do you store something that is supposed to be crispy and gooey straight from the oven without totally ruining the cobbler experience?
Well, there are a couple things I highly recommend when it comes to storing and reheating:
- When storing it try to keep the topping intact with the blackberries.
- Store in an air tight container in the fridge up to 5 days.
- When reheating, pop it in the oven for optimal taste. A microwave will do and still taste great, but the oven will re-crisp and re-bubble the cobbler.
- Oven: bake at 300 for 10-12 minutes
- Microwave: 60-90 seconds
