Easy Vegan Berry Cobbler 🌱 A simply scrumptious old school style dessert made with juicy berries and a buttery toasted sweet crumble topping.
A couple years ago, I planted berry vines in my yard – raspberries and boysenberries. I really like raspberries but I ADORE boysenberries. Ever since I was a kid, boysenberries have held a special place in my heart and my palate.

I grew up in Santa Monica, a coastal town in Los Angeles County, not far from the mecca of all things boysenberry – Knott’s Berry Farm. Throughout my childhood, boysenberries were a fixture in our kitchen. My brother and I just couldn’t get enough of those sweet, tart, plump, juicy, deep purple berries. Boysenberry preserves, jam, and our absolute favorite – boysenberry pie.
So, back to those berry vines. Not long after I planted them, the raspberry went wild, producing new shoots all over the garden. The boysenberry, however, remained – let’s say – quiet. I didn’t think it was going to thrive. I was worried.
And then this happened!
Oh boy boysenberries!
You’ve no idea how excited I was to have fresh boysenberries! My first thought was “I have to make a boysenberry pie.” But then I realized my young crop might not yield enough ripe berries to make a whole pie. So I opted to make mini berry cobblers instead. What a delicious decision that was!
With the help of my daughter Madison, we went on a quest to create a berry-centric dessert that would allow these beautiful fresh boysenberries to be the star of the show. Some cobblers have biscuit-like doughs that absorb the juice and flavors of the berries underneath. We decided to make a topping that enhanced the experience of the dessert without competing with the fruit itself.
This easy vegan berry cobbler is so scrumptious. It embraces all the flavor and texture of the beautiful berries with the rich addition of a chewy caramelized crust.
