My family LOVES fresh Blackberries, which we pick abundantly whenever we visit Washington State I might add....
And what better way to use all those fresh berries than cook them up in a yummy 5 Minute Blackberry Cobbler.
This 5 Minute Blackberry Cobbler is a single serving recipe, completely fat free and Vegan, perfect for those days you want a sweet and healthy treat.
I use freshly picked Blackberries with a little sugar and corn starch for my filling. And add an Oatmeal/Brown Sugar Topping that will soon have you making seconds when the hubby or wife sneaks in to investigate the heavenly smells coming out of the kitchen. Trust me on this....I've made 3 of these already ....
This recipe is similar to my Chocolate Mug Cake and Blueberry Muffin Mug Cake in that the entire dish can be made in a coffee mug or small bowl in just a few minutes in your microwave.
Warm, sweet berries, with a chewy, oatmeal crumb.
Mmmm mmmm the perfect treat.
5 Minute Blackberry Cobbler
If your berries are frozen, heat ½ cup of frozen blackberries in a microwave safe bowl or cup until thawed, then add 2 tsp of sugar and ½ tsp of cornstarch and microwave for 30 seconds.
With a slotted spoon, remove the berries and place them in the bottom of a microwaveable coffee mug or small bowl. You can either discard the juice left behind or pour it on top of your cobbler when it's finished.
Meanwhile in a separate bowl, mix 3 Tbs of Rolled Oats, 1 Tbs Flour, 1 tsp Brown Sugar, ¼ tsp Baking Powder, and a pinch of salt until well blended.
Then stir in 2 tsp unsweetened Applesauce and 2 Tbs unsweetened Almond Milk to make a thick batter. Spoon the batter mixture over the top of the berries and microwave for 1 minute.
Check the topping to make sure it's done - you may need to microwave an additional 30 - 60 seconds, depending on the wattage of your oven.
I hope you enjoy this treat, straight from the heart of the Pacific Northwest.
Blackberries are truly a superfood, noted for their high levels of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid and manganese. Blackberries are also considered one of the strongest antioxidant foods consumed in the U.S.
Thank goodness they're so yummy too 🙂

This is so simple and quick! Great recipe Chuck! I used mixed frozen berries and it was delicious! I look forward to making a fresh raspberry cobbler in the spring! Thank you for developing a tasty, healthy, and quick recipe!
O wow!!!! This was sooooooo good!! Since it is just hubby and me at home I don’t like making huge desserts. This was perfect!! I accidentally used 2 TB applesauce instead of 2 tsp. It was still delicious! I made up lots of baggies of the dry topping so I can assemble the cobbler quickly! Yay!! Thank you Chuck for another excellent recipe... perfect for this dreary day in Texas! ??❤️
Is there substitute for apple sauce?
I´ve been using Vegan and sugar-free Quetschies (I think in the US they are called puree pouches) with different fruit flavors and they work wonderfully as an apple sauce sub in every single recipe tried. I have a toddler at home, so I have enough of them and never ever bought apple sauce...
I love your desserts! They are so yummy and satisfying!
Made this last night. Cinchy and Delicious!
I LOVE that it’s QUICK to make. Thank you!
Do you have the ingredient amounts to make in a casserole dish for a crowd?
Looks wonderful! Can't wait to try it.
I'm sorry I don't. I have never made it into a casserole!
Can you answer the oven question please? I too don't like using the microwave, infact I don;t even have one anymore.
I've never made this in the oven, so I really can't tell you.
I don't like using a microwave. How could I make this in the oven?
I dont use a microwave either but I'm sure first step will work on the stove and the last we can put it in the oven. it will take more time but it's possible.
I have another recipe that is for an OATMEAL BAKE AND IT SHOULD BE IN 350 DEGREE OVEN FOR 20 MIN BUT I Make it in the microwave and cook for 2 minutes. Try 350 degrees for 20 minutes but watch it carefully.
Great recipe! I used blueberries, because I did not have blackberries, and I added a teaspoon of lemon juice to the blueberries. I love it and will definately make it again.
Thank you for creating this recipe...it was delicious!
I think I'll try this with frozen cherries and add a dash of almond extract. Yummy!
