Four Sweet Summer Blackberry Desserts

We always love eating what’s in season. It’s good for the Earth, your wallet and the produce is at its best! During the summer, so many wonderful fruits are ripe. If you are lucky enough to live near a farm stand, grab what’s fresh and enjoy a bowl of fruit grown in your area. Or cook with fresh fruit for delicious results!

Blackberries are in season. They are perfect just as they are. You can eat them without any accompaniments! You can also add them to yogurt for an amazing breakfast to help you kick your day off right! They are a great snack, or you can bake with them to make delicious desserts! Here are four options you’re sure to love.

Keto-Friendly Blackberry Clafoutis


We all owe Julia Child so much gratitude for bringing many French recipes to American kitchens. A clafoutis can be compared to a dutch baby studded with fruit. While the name makes it sound like the recipe will be hard, you actually just add all the ingredients besides the fruit to a blender and then pour the batter over the fruit and bake. Using almond flour and a noncaloric sweetener, you can put a modern low-carb twist on the classic French dish. A serving has 88 calories, four grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and six grams of fat. Get the recipe.    

Blackberry Coffee Cake


Coffee cake is a funny baked good: it’s one of the few society says you can eat for breakfast. It has a lightly sweet flavor that isn’t too much in the morning but is enough to feel like a dessert in the evening. It has a crunchy topping, the fruit seeps in, creating a middle layer and then there is a delicious, moist cake as a base. It’s delightful all around! We love that this version is so easy to make! A serving has 204 calories, seven grams of carbs, three grams of fiber and 18 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Blackberry Coconut Bake


This recipe is great, and we love the origins. Its creator was trying to make a cobbler, and it went wrong, turning into this. Best served warm, it’s somewhere between a pudding and a cake. If served cold, it holds its shape, more like a cake. It’s delicious either way. One way, you serve it with a scoop; the other way, you cut it with a knife. It’s a different type of baked good than we’re used to, but we aren’t complaining! A serving has 65 calories, 10 grams of carbs, five grams of fiber and one gram of fat. Get the recipe.  

Blackberry Bars


Lemon bars are one of the quintessential desserts of summer. Tart fruit over a crust with a crumb topping just screams summer. But this bar dessert can be stretched to other flavors besides lemon. If you bake low-carb things regularly, you probably already have all the ingredients, but you may have to buy xanthan gum. It’s an ingredient you can’t skip, as the filling won’t be thick enough without it! The carb count seems high on this recipe, but it has nine grams of sugar alcohols that count toward overall carbs but don’t count for net carbs. A serving has 223 calories, 19 grams of carbs, six grams of fiber and 19 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Blackberries are tasty and the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth. We hope you enjoy them while they’re in season!
