🫐What You’ll Need

Blueberry Filling:

  • Fresh Blueberries – You can find fresh blueberries year-round, but we think summertime blueberries in-season taste the best! You can also use frozen blueberries to make cobbler if that’s all you have on hand.
  • Brown Sugar – Caramelizes the blueberries bringing sweet, toffee-like flavors to this dessert.
  • Lemon Juice – Adds a hint of acidity, which brightens up and enhances the flavor of the blueberries when cooked.

FOR THE TOPPING:

  • Flour – Acts as a binder for all of the ingredients and helps make the top nice and crunchy when air fried.
  • Rolled Oats – Adds a nutty flavor and texture to the top that is classic in fruit crumble recipes.
  • Butter – Adds flavor, and moisture and helps the topping become golden brown and toasted in the air fryer.
  • Brown Sugar – Adds pleasant sugary-sweet flavor.
  • Cinnamon – Compliments the warming flavors in the blueberry filling.
  • FOR SERVING (optional): vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream.

Tools:

  • Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi – You can use any air fryer you have for as many ramekins that will fit in the bottom of the air fryer basket. We love the Ninja Foodi because of its versatility and quality.
  • Ramekin – A small baking dish perfect for air frying single servings that is heat safe.

📖How To Make Blueberry Cobbler In The Air Fryer

1️⃣Prepare for air frying: Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes. Grease a ramekin with oil or butter.

2️⃣Prepare the blueberry filling: Wash the blueberries in cold water to remove any dirt or impurities. Place them in a bowl along with the lemon juice and brown sugar. Toss the mixture until fully combined. Add the blueberry mixture to the bottom of the prepared ramekin.

3️⃣Assemble the cobbler topping: In a small bowl, add flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix well. Cut the cold butter into small pieces and then press it into the dry mixture using your fingers or a fork. Continue until the butter is well incorporated and a crumbly topping forms. Sprinkle the topping over the blueberries evenly.

4️⃣Air fry and serve: Place ramekin in the preheated air fryer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the blueberries are fork tender and the topping is golden brown. Serve hot with a scoop of ice cream and/or whipped cream.

👩🏻‍🍳Chef’s Tips

Before making this easy air fryer dessert, make sure your ramekins are heat safe up to 375 degrees.

If you don’t have ramekins, you can use a small air fryer-safe bowl or baking dish. Just keep in mind the cooking time may differ slightly.

The time it takes to fully cook the blueberries will depend on your individual air fryer and how large your blueberries are For best results cut the apples even in size. If your apples aren’t fully cooked through in 15-20 minutes, add more cooking time in 3-5 minute intervals.

This air fryer blueberry cobbler recipe is easily doubled, tripled, or quadrupled to make multiple servings at once. Simply use a larger baking dish that will fit at the bottom of the air fryer basket and increase the cooking time by a few minutes if necessary.

🍏Variations

Make it a full berry cobbler by using your favorite berries, including blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries.

If it’s summertime and peaches are in season, swap out the blueberries and make Air Fryer Peach Cobbler instead!

If it’s fall and apple season is in full swing, make a batch of Air Fryer Apple Crisp.

For a little extra decadence, top your air fryer cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

If you don’t have rolled oats on hand, you can use chopped nuts such as pecans or walnuts instead. Just keep in mind that the texture will be slightly different.

Instead of cinnamon, use pumpkin pie spice in the filling and topping to add warming fall flavor to the dessert.

This recipe can easily be made with frozen blueberries. The cooking time may vary and the texture may be slightly different.
