A healthier Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler recipe, full of juicy berries and peaches and a touch of brown sugar. This easy dessert is made entirely in your crock pot!
Who out there is a fan of using your slow cooker to make life easier? My hand is raised as high as can be! Some of my all-time favorite recipes are made in my crock pot. Like these Honey BBQ Slow Cooker Chicken Taquitos. And this EASY Slow Cooker Lasagna.
I used to only use my slow cooker for dinner recipes. But lately I’m loving how easy it is to make dessert in my slow cooker. When I shared this Slow Cooker Apple Crisp recipe, I never imagined how popular it would become. It’s one of my top viewed recipes every. single. day. So I decided to try a new twist on the slow cooker fruit dessert with this blueberry peach cobbler.
This Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler starts with a simple whole wheat dough made with a bit of butter, a touch of brown sugar, and some cinnamon and vanilla for extra flavor. You’ll crumble the dough into the bottom of your slow cooker, and then top it with the fruit. I kept the fruit filling simple, with just some honey, brown sugar, and vanilla for sweetness.
Once you’ve got the dough and fruit in your slow cooker, you’ll cover it and cook everything on high for a few hours until it’s all warm, sweet, and bubbly. Yum!
We love this with peaches and blueberries, but you can use your favorite fruits. Raspberries, strawberries, or cherries would be super delicious!
Are you wondering why you should make this in the slow cooker when you could just as easily toss the same ingredients in a baking dish and pop it in the oven? I have two big reasons why the crock pot wins with this recipe:
- You’ll save valuable oven space if you’re entertaining and cooking a big meal.
- Is it summer and SO hot in your house? You can make this Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler without turning on your oven!
And in case that’s not enough to convince you that you should make this easy dessert asap, read on:
Why you’ll love this Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler:
- For a dessert, this recipe is on the healthier side. We’re keeping the sugar and butter to a minimum. And we’re using whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour has more nutrients and fiber than all-purpose.
- You can use either frozen or fresh fruit, depending on what’s in season, the price, and what you have available. Frozen fruit allows you to make this delicious Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler year-round!
- Your house will smell amazing as this cobbler cooks!
We also love this Slow Cooker Apple Crisp, and I think you will, too!
- 14 ounces (about 4 cups) frozen or fresh peaches (peeled and sliced if fresh)
- 9 ounces (2 cups) frozen or fresh blueberries
- 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup whole wheat (or white whole wheat) flour
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Combine peaches, blueberries, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir and then set aside. It's ok if the honey and sugar aren't evenly distributed yet, as you will stir them again after you make the cobbler dough.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, cut in the butter until it is the size of small peas. Combine the milk and vanilla and then stir into the flour mixture until the dough comes together.
- Lightly spray the bottom of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Crumble the dough evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker. Stir the fruit to make sure it's evenly coated with the honey and brown sugar, and then place on top of the dough.
- Cover and cook on high for 2 ½ hours until filling is hot and bubbly. Serve warm, with ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
