Slow Cooker Blueberry Cobbler

This healthy slow cooker blueberry cobbler is SUPER easy and the taste is so good! It’s the perfect summer dessert. You can use homemade cake mix or Bisquick, fresh or frozen berries, plus there’s a gluten-free option.

Don’t you love it when you can toss dinner into a slow cooker and call it done? What I think might be even better though, is tossing DESSERT into a slow cooker and calling it done!

My favorite peach cobbler recipe is a dump dessert, meaning I can dump it into the slow cooker and walk away and it will be ready for me whenever I want.

With blueberry season though, I wanted to do something with all the freshly picked blueberries we have… I have an easy blueberry cobbler recipe!

Blueberry Cobbler

Anytime I have extra blueberries – whether from picking at a local farm or finding a good deal at the grocery store – I either freeze them for smoothies (here’s how to freeze blueberries) or I make a blueberry pie.

In the middle of summer though, I REALLY don’t want to turn the oven on. Keeping it off as much as possible means keeping the house cooler!

So I turn to my favorite kitchen appliances to get the job done instead. As much as I love my 8-quart Instant Pot, this blueberry cobbler uses Old Faithful – my slow cooker – and it’s AMAZING.

Let me tell you why this is the best blueberry cobbler recipe ever.

It’s made in the slow cooker. That means no heating up the house, no need to babysit, and no need to set a timer.You need just 3 ingredients. If you have a jar of homemade yellow cake mix, a bunch of blueberries (fresh or frozen), and some butter, you’re good to go!Leftovers are AMAZING. This blueberry cobbler is AWESOME fresh out of the crock-pot, but leftovers the next day were pretty legit too.Use a different berry! While this is a BLUEBERRY cobbler, you can easily turn this into a blackberry cobbler, strawberry cobbler, or even a mixed berry cobbler!It’s super, super easy. You just dump the ingredients in the slow cooker. For real. No mixing allowed!No dishes! Other than the slow cooker itself and a mug for the butter, you’re not dirtying a bunch of dishes… you don’t need to wash a large bowl or baking dish!Healthy enough for breakfast. You can totally control the amount of sugar in this recipe, which means it can be healthy enough to serve for breakfast or a snack (and I’ve done both!)It can be gluten-free! You have total control over the ingredients, so they can easily be made gluten-free.The kids LOVED it. My two kids ate nearly the entire batch the first time I made this. Then they jumped up and down (literally) when I told them I was making it again!

Blueberry Cobbler Recipe

Did you catch my note above about making this blueberry cobbler with cake mix?

I know there are TONS of dessert recipes out there that use a boxed cake mix, but that isn’t exactly real food. Instead, we’re using my recipe for homemade cake mix that comes together in literally two minutes. You need:

Psst! If you’re going to add salt, I highly recommend Ava Jane’s Kitchen. You may think all salt is created equal, but unfortunately, 90% of the salt produced around the world contains microplastics (gross, right?). Ava Jane’s Kitchen is an exception. Their salt is 100% microplastic free, and it’s SO GOOD! Plus, you can get a bag for just 1¢!! (Get your penny bag of salt on this page.)

That’s it! If you make cake often at home, you can save a lot of time by making a few batches of homemade yellow cake mix (or homemade chocolate cake mix) for the pantry. One batch fits perfectly in a 32 oz jar!

How to Make Blueberry Cobbler

This blueberry dessert literally comes together in just three easy steps.

Step 1. Pour the blueberries into the bottom of the slow cooker. You can use fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries – the end result is the same and both are delicious. I’ve had this 6-quart slow cooker for several years now and truly love it. It’s relatively easy to clean, but if your slow cooker is not, I highly recommend using slow cooker liners.

Step 2. Sprinkle the homemade cake mix on top of the blueberries – do not stir! The not stirring is actually pretty important. That’s how you get the layer of blueberries on the bottom and the cake-like cobbler on top.

Step 3. Pour the melted butter over the cake. Do your best to drizzle evenly, so that you don’t end up with too much raw cake mixture. Although I have to say, that raw bit is one of my favorite parts!

Set the timer and walk away! The cobbler will thicken as it cools and it will be ready in just a few hours! You can even top this with homemade whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Wait – Don’t I Need Lemon Juice or Lemon Zest?

A lot of blueberry cobbler recipes call for both of these ingredients, but I’ve found that in my recipe, they’re just not needed!


How do you tell if a cobbler is done? You can tell your blueberry cobbler is done when the top is a golden brown color and the filling is bubbly around the sides. What about Bisquick blueberry cobbler? Bisquick is another processed food that we should stay away from, but if you have a family recipe that you love and it calls for Bisquick, use my homemade Bisquick instead. It comes together just as quickly as the homemade cake mix and it’s SO much healthier than the yellow box! Should I refrigerate the blueberry cobbler? You can keep the cooked blueberry cobbler at room temperature (either out on the counter or on the picnic table) for a few hours, but at the end of the day, you’ll want to store any leftovers in the fridge.

How to Make Blueberry Cobbler With Pie Filling

I’ve never tried making blueberry cobbler with pie filling, although I imagine you can substitute the canned filling for the fresh fruit. The only catch would be that the canned filling will have some liquid already AND will likely be sweetened.

If you decide to use pie filling, I’d recommend adding a bit more cornstarch and reducing the sugar in the homemade cake mix.

Best Ever Slow Cooker Blueberry Cobbler Recipe (gluten-free option)

This healthy slow cooker blueberry cobbler is SUPER easy and the taste is so good! It’s the perfect summer dessert. You can use homemade cake mix or Bisquick, fresh or frozen berries, plus there’s a gluten-free option.

Method: Slow cooker
Cuisine: American


If your slow cooker is older or hard to clean, use a slow cooker liner. Otherwise, measure the blueberries into the slow cooker.
In a small bowl, stir to combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Pour this evenly over the blueberries.
Drizzle the melted butter evenly over the dry cake mix.
Cook on low for 2 ½ to 3 hours. The crumble topping should be golden brown. Lift the lid to let the air out as the cobbler cools.** This will thicken the cobbler.
Serve warm as desired, possibly with a scoop of ice cream!


I use all-purpose einkorn flour, but you can use whatever flour you’d like, including gluten-free flour blends.
It’s okay if your slow cooker defaults to warm after the cooking time is complete. If this is the case, you may or may not need to lift the lid to thicken the cobbler.
If you decide to use pie filling, I’d recommend adding a bit more cornstarch and reducing the sugar in the homemade cake mix.
You can keep the cooked blueberry cobbler at room temperature (either out on the counter or on the picnic table) for a few hours, but at the end of the day, you’ll want to store any leftovers in the fridge.
