Crockpot Blueberry Peach Cobbler, full of juicy blueberries and peaches. This easy cobbler recipe is made entirely in your slow cooker!
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 this Slow Cooker Taco Pasta and Crockpot Chicken Tacos.
If you only use your crockpot for dinner recipes, though, you are missing out. You are going to love how easy it is to make dessert in your slow cooker! My Slow Cooker Apple Crisp is one of my best crockpot recipes.
This crockpot cobbler recipe starts with a simple biscuit-like cobbler dough. You’ll crumble the dough into the bottom of your slow cooker, and then top it with the fruit. The fruit filling is simple to make with just a few ingredients, so the fresh flavor of the peaches and blueberries can shine.
As the cobbler cooks, the blueberry peach filling becomes irresistibly juicy, hot and bubbly. This crockpot blueberry peach cobbler is best served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Not ready to use your slow cooker? My oven-baked blueberry cobbler and peach cobbler recipes are also amazing.

How to Make Crockpot Cobbler
This recipe is easy to make, and it’s especially quick to prepare if you use frozen fruit. Find the full recipe with ingredient amounts and instructions in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Prepare the Fruit Filling
Make the fruit filling first, so that it can rest while you make the cobbler dough. As it rests, the fruit will start to release some of its juices and the filling ingredients will be easier to combine.
If you are using fresh peaches, peel and slice them. If you use frozen peaches, they will already be sliced and peeled. You do not need to thaw the fruit if frozen.
Put the peaches, blueberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir and then set the fruit aside. After you make the cobbler dough, you will stir the filling again to fully combine all of the ingredients.
Make the Cobbler Dough
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add the cubes of cold butter to the bowl. Use a pastry blender or your fingertips to work the butter into the dry ingredients, until the largest butter pieces are the size of small peas. Pour in the buttermilk and stir with a fork until the dough comes together.
Crumble the dough over the bottom of the crockpot. Stir the fruit filling to make sure everything is well combined. Pour the fruit on top of the dough. If there are a lot of juices in the bowl, leave those behind.
Slow Cook the Cobbler
You can cook the cobbler on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or on low for 4 to 5 hours. The exact cook time will depend on your slow cooker, as they all tend to cook a little differently. If you use frozen fruit, plan on the cooking the cobbler closer to the longer end of the cook time range.
The cobbler is done when the fruit filling is hot and bubbly, and the cobbler dough has cooked through.
Crockpot Cobbler Variations
- We love this crockpot cobbler with peaches and blueberries, but you can use your favorite fruits. Try cherries, blackberries or strawberries.
- If you prefer a crockpot peach cobbler, you can increase the amount of peaches and leave out the blueberries. Or make a blueberry cobbler by replacing the peaches with more blueberries.
- Both fresh and frozen fruit work equally well in this recipe. The cobbler may take a little longer to cook if you use frozen fruit, so plan on the cook time being close to the higher end of the cooking time range given in the recipe.
- You can use white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour for a healthier cobbler.

Crockpot Blueberry Peach Cobbler
For the fruit:
- 5 cups fresh or frozen* peaches , peeled and sliced if fresh (about 5 large peaches)
- 3 cups fresh or frozen* blueberries
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the cobbler dough:
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, or white whole wheat flour
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
- ⅓ cup buttermilk
Make the fruit mixture:
- Combine peaches, blueberries, sugar, cornstarch and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir and then set aside. It's ok if everything isn't evenly distributed yet, as you will stir again after you make the cobbler dough.
Make the cobbler dough:
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 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. Pour in the buttermilk and mix with a fork 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 everything is well combined and then spread the fruit in an even layer on top of the dough (leave any excess juices in the bowl).
- Cover and cook on high for 2 ½ to 3 hours or on low for 4 to 5 hours, until filling is hot and bubbly. Let the cobbler rest for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve warm, with ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
- If using frozen fruit, you do not need to thaw it before using. The cobbler will take a little longer to cook if using frozen fruit, so plan on the longer end of the cook time range.
Slow cookers are seriously a life saver! I need to make more desserts in there, too. I was just thinking of making a cobbler or crisp in there a few weeks ago, so this is perfect. I love the ease of this recipe, Kristine! Sounds SO good! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
WOW! I love that you can make this in the slow cooker! I usually put my slow cooker away in the summer, but this is brilliant!
This cobbler looks amazing and I love how hands off the recipe is, thanks to the slow cooker 🙂
this cobbler looks so good! so perfect for the upcoming summer & i just love that it can be made in a slow coker.
Beautiful photos and a delicious dessert! I want a big bowl of this for dessert right now! LOVE!
Oh my gosh, this cobbler looks SO good, Kristine! I definitely do not make dessert as often as I should in my crockpot! This’ll be so perfect for those busy summer days when I run out of time to make dessert!
I love using my slow cooker all year round, especially when it’s sooo hot outside. This cobbler looks incredible, Kristine! I love that you kept it on the healthier side too!
I made it tonight and it was wonderful. I used thawed frozen fruit and it was still perfect. All it needed was whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to accompany it. There’s always tomorrow!
This looks so good!! I can just imagine how delicious it must smell while cooking!! I’ve never used a slow cooker to make dessert before but this seems to good not to try! And so easy!
Thank you, Alaina! You need to try making dessert in the slow cooker sometime!
What size slow cooker should I use?
Mine is a 5 quart. For this recipe, you should be fine with a 5 or 6 quart (or smaller).
Can you use canned peaches, or will it be too mushy?
I don’t think canned will work well in this recipe. Fresh or frozen is best!
Can u just make the fruit part and freeze that? And when u want it make the topping?
That should work. You’d have to pop it in the oven to get the topping to brown when you were ready to serve it. In that case, it might be easiest to just make the whole thing in the oven when you want to serve it rather than using the slow cooker and freezing. 🙂
I am a type 2 diabetic. Can the “Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler” recipe be made for diabetics?
Hi Margaret, I’m not a doctor and can’t give dietary advice for diabetics. You would need to calculate the sugar and carbohydrates and determine if it fits in with your medically prescribed diet. While this dessert is lower in sugar than many, it does have a fair number of carbs between the fruit, crust and added brown sugar/honey.
If I one and a half this recipe and use a seven quart slow cooker, do you think it would turn out okay?
Hi Clare, I think that will work. Enjoy!
I doubled the recipe, used stawberrys, blueberry, home canned peaches, used maple syrup instead honey,
Approximately how many fresh peaches is this?
4-5 medium fresh peaches.
This looks amazing. Can you use gluten free flours, coconut, almond, or other flours in it?
Thank you, Cheryl! I haven’t tested this recipe with other flours, so I can’t say how it would turn out.
You make it in a rectangular crockpot?
Yes, that should work. Enjoy!
Do you have to thaw the frozen fruit before cooking it?
Nope, you can add it to the slow cooker frozen. 🙂
Looks delish! Estimation on calories?
Hi Devon, I don’t count calories and haven’t calculated them for this recipe. You can use an online calculator (such as My Fitness Pal) to find the nutrition information.
How long and at what heat do you do for an oven baked?
I would try 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. It’s done when the filling is bubbly. If the top looks like it is browning too much before the filling is done, you can cover it loosely with foil.
When you serve this, is it difficult to evenly distribute the dough/crust, since it is on the bottom or do you mix everything up before serving? I’m also looking to double this, do you think that will work? Looking forward to making this! Thanks!
I do not mix before serving. Doubling may not work if your crockpot is small or heats slowly. You may need to add more cook time.
