Ripe juicy blackberries are sweetened up with a Keto-friendly sweetener and the juice is thickened to give it classic cobbler consistency. Serve it with a scoop of your favorite sugar-free ice for a dessert that's so amazing, no one will ever know it's sugar free.

🔪 How to Make Keto Blackberry Cobbler
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a mixing bowl, add in the blackberries, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of the sweetener and xanthan gum. Gently toss until well combined.
In another mixing bowl, add in the almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder and remaining sweetener, then whisk to combine.
Add in the beaten egg, vanilla extract and melted butter. Mix until you have a sticky dough.
Dollop the dough using 2 spoons over the berries, making sure that the berries are still exposed and peeking through.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the berries are breaking down and giving up some of their juice.
Tip: If the top starts becoming too browned, tent loosely with aluminum foil and continue cooking.
Serve warm with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.
Are Blackberries Low Carb?
Blackberries are one of the lowest carb fruits you can eat. With only 3.5 net carbs per ½ cup serving, blackberries on Keto are the perfect low carb snack or ingredient for jams and sauces.
Should You Refrigerate Blackberry Cobbler?
For best results, leftover blackberry cobbler should be kept in the refrigerator. Though it doesn't contain much dairy, other than the butter, once the berries have baked, they'll continue to break down.
Keeping it in the fridge helps to slow down that process and keeps the cobbler fresher for longer.
How Do You Thicken Fruit for Cobbler?
Traditional cobbler recipes use a slurry made with flour. But since we are keeping this cobbler Keto-friendly, we used a tiny bit of xanthan gum. This helps to stabilize and the thicken the cobbler without increasing the carbs.
Word of caution when using this product. A little bit goes a very long way. For most dessert recipes, you'll only need ¼ teaspoon for the whole recipe.
How Do You Sweeten Blackberries Without Sugar?
If you end up with some sub-par berries that are just too tart to enjoy as they are, the best way to sweeten them up is to macerate them by soaking or steeping them in a water or liquid sweetened with a Keto friendly sugar alternative.
What Can I Do with an Abundance of Blackberries?
There is nothing better than summertime blackberries when they are plump, super sweet and juicy. That's why when I see really pretty ones in the grocery store, I tend to go a little overboard buying them. If this sounds familiar, here are some ways to put them to great use:
Add fresh blackberries to your favorite salad recipe. I love to add blackberries to this Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing. You can also make a simple fruit salad with blackberries and a medley of other berries. For a great dressing to add to the fruit salad, just use a little of this Sugar-Free Honey with some fresh lemon juice mixed in.
Homemade jam is so much easier to make than you would think. This homemade Blackberry Jam only takes 5 ingredients and less than 15 minutes to make! It's delicious served with hot buttered Keto Biscuits or delicious homemade Keto Waffles.
There are so many wonderful sauces and salad dressings you can make with pureed blackberries. Blackberries make a super tasty vinaigrette, like this Raspberry Vinaigrette using the exact same ingredients, using blackberries instead.
There are countless low carb desserts that you can make with blackberries. Mix them in with your favorite Keto mousse for a quick and easy dessert. Two of my other favorite recipes using blackberries are Blackberry Coffee Cake and Blackberry Cheesecake Bars.
A cool and refreshing smoothie is always a great way to use up some of those juicy ripe blackberries. Freeze them ahead of time to keep the smoothie cold and use less ice!
Never let blackberries go to waste. You can freeze them and use them later with these few easy steps:
- Rinse blackberries in a vinegar and water bath to kill any bacteria and to remove any dirt or grit. Pat dry with paper towels then allow them to air dry the rest of the way.
- Lay the berries in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Stick them in the freezer on a flat surface for about two-three hours.
- Transfer the berries from the sheet pan to a freezer safe bag and label with the date. They will stay fresh for about a year when frozen properly this way.
