Cobbler is my favorite dessert of all time. Not just any cobbler though. It’s gotta be blueberry and it’s gotta be Texas style. Most cobblers are made by dropping biscuit dough on top of a slurry of sweetened fruit. Also delicious. But Texas style cobblers are a different beast. A buttery, sweet, delicious beast. Texas style cobblers are made by pouring a thick pancake-like batter into a generously buttered pan and then topping with the fruit of your choosing.
My grandmother’s recipe for blueberry cobbler is legendary in my family. It’s a staple at family parties, especially summertime barbeques. After a bit of trial and error, I’ve transformed this gem of a recipe to be completely paleo! YES. It is just as delicious. Buttery, sweet, and fluffy with crispy edges that are to die for. This paleo blueberry cobbler is literally everything.
Did I mention that it only takes 5 minutes of prep time? Yep. It’s super easy to make and you don’t need any fancy equipment. Just a bowl, a whisk, and a glass baking pan.
One last note, while this recipe is paleo and gluten-free, it’s still a dessert and not something I would call “healthy”. This cobbler is definitely a treat. I mean, look at how much butter it calls for. Not a health food. Not even close. But that’s why it’s so great. Just thought I’d throw that out there as a disclaimer.
I hope you enjoy the recipe! 🙂
