ingredients and Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Gluten Free Blueberry Cobbler. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of this page for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. I prefer using frozen which will result in a more saucy cobbler.
This recipe is made with coconut sugar making it refined sugar free. You can however use brown or cane sugar in replace.
Fresh lemon juice adds the perfect amount of tanginess.
Tapioca flour helps create more of a thicker blueberry filling. Use corn starch or arrowroot starch in replace.
Vanilla extract adds a lovely flavor to any baked good.
This cobbler uses the gluten free flour blend from Bob’s Red Mill. If using a different brand, make sure it’s a 1:1 swap. Other gluten free flours such as almond flour will not work as a 1:1 replacement.
Make sure you are using a gluten free baking powder to ensure this recipe stays gluten free. Otherwise, any baking powder will work.
A touch of salt helps balance out all the flavors.
Cinnamon gives the biscuit topping a warm, sweet flavor.
You can use almond milk like I did, or any type of milk or nut milk alternative such as dairy milk, cashew milk, hemp milk, etc.
Use dairy-free butter to keep this recipe free from dairy, otherwise you can use regular butter.
An egg helps the biscuits rise and have a fluffy texture. I unfortunately have not tested this recipe with a vegan egg replacement. If you decide to try it, please let me know in the comments below.
how to make
ONE: Preheat the oven to 425F and prepare a baking dish by lighting coating it with your favorite non-stick spray or oil. Then, in a large bowl mix together the frozen blueberries, coconut sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract and tapioca flour. Pour into greased pan and set aside.
TWO: In a medium bowl, combine gluten free flour blend, coconut sugar, gluten free baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until ingredients are well incorporated.
THREE: Add in the cold butter and mix with your hands or a fork (I prefer my hands, it’s much faster). The mixture should be crumbly. Set aside.
FOUR: In a small bowl, whisk together the almond milk and egg and then pour this mixture into the dough. Mix with a spatula until ingredients are incorporated.
FIVE: Using a large cookie scoop, scoop the dough and drop it over the blueberries and flatten slightly with the back of a greased spoon. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes, then uncover and bake for 25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and firm to the touch.
SIX: Let cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Tips and tricks
Use frozen blueberries for a more saucy cobbler, and fresh blueberries for more of a firm cobbler.
When mixing the butter into the flour, use your hands or a dough cutter.
