What’s better than a cobbler fresh out of the oven? Few things compare to a simple mixture of seasonal fresh fruit topped with a crumbly, buttery roof. Top with ice cream or yogurt, if you please, or just enjoy these cobblers in their perfect simplicity.



  • 2 cups blackberries (12 ounces)

  • 3 cups raspberries (12 ounces)

  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and coarsely cut into quarters(about 11/2pints)

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 to 4 tablespoons honey (depending on the sweetness of the berries)

  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder

  • Pinch salt


1 Preheat the oven to 375.

2 Make the filling: In a large bowl, toss together all the ingredients for your selected cobbler filling.

3 Butter an 8-inch-square, deep baking dish, preferably glass.

4 Transfer the fruit mixture to the dish, leaving 1 inch of room at the top, for both the topping and the juices that like to bubble over and make a sticky mess on the bottom of your oven. You can put a baking sheet on the rack below the one you are using to bake the cobbler to catch any juicy spill-over, just in case.


  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

  • 1 cup raw unsalted almonds or pecans, finely chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 1 cup butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes, plus more for greasing the pan


5 Make the topping: In a large bowl, stir together the oats, coconut, nuts, salt and cinnamon.

6 In a small pot, melt the coconut oil and honey together. Drizzle this over the oat mixture and stir well. Add the butter cubes to the oat mixture and squeeze the butter and oat mixture together with your hands until the oats and butter are well incorporated. This part is great for the kids to get involved with! (It may look like this is way too much butter, but trust me, you want your topping to be really buttery. You may ask, “Why am I wrist deep in butter and oats?” Well, this is what makes the crumble top crumbly.)

7 Top the fruit filling in the baking dish with the oat mixture and cover the pan with foil. Bake for 35 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Remove the foil and bake until the topping is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more.


Bring this dessert to a summer barbecue or potluck and everyone will love you. All of the fruits called for in the recipe that follows are on the Dirty Dozen list and, therefore, are best bought organic. If you can’t find organic, peel your fruit first. Have extra cobbler? Use it in your morning oatmeal instead of any sweeteners or layer in a cup with yogurt for a gorgeous parfait.

Extra filling can be cooked separately in a little greased ramekin and eaten with yogurt, ice cream, or over oatmeal.
