Slow Cooker Pumpkin Cobbler Recipe

This slow cooker pumpkin cobbler is a fun way to enjoy an autumn-inspired dessert after dinner.

Cobblers always sound like such a homey type of dessert to me. The word “Cobbler” sounds like something that’s totally comforting, warm, welcoming, and ooey-gooey delicious. And seeing as how it’s currently pumpkin season, I thought I’d give a pumpkin cobbler a try.

The truth is, as I sit here typing this in my dining room office, I’m also sitting in a ton of very loud noise and vibration. They are jackhammering the slab in the closet area of my bedroom and the whole house feels like it’s going to come tumbling down around me. The noise is deafening, the dust is hanging in the air and the vibrations are worse than many of the earthquakes I’ve lived through as a California native. It’s quite the experience and I absolutely cannot wait until it’s over!!

But while I worry about my framed photos vibrating off the wall and onto the ground in a million pieces (they didn’t tell me I might need to take everything down, but I’ve been scrambling to catch everything!!), I’m also enjoying the faint smell of Autumn coming from my slow cooker. It’s hard to pinpoint over the smell of the machines they’ve got going, but it’s definitely there and bringing me a little bit of peace and comfort in a moment of stress and worry. Funny how aromas can do that for you…

Clean Eating slow cooker Pumpkin Cobbler Recipe With Maple Syrup

I used less sugar in this recipe than most cobblers call for because most people will want to pour maple syrup over the top. So I didn’t want to go hog-wild with the sweetener. You can always double the sweetener if you prefer not to use the maple syrup after cooking. But I highly recommend it. It’s a very nice addition to this dish.

Also, the topping is a bit dense and spongy. I like it because it reminds me a bit of a dense, spongy cake. It’s grain-free and it’s pretty tasty!

So I’m going to go save a few more framed photos before they hit the floor and tonight, I may find myself enjoying this for dessert with a glass of wine to calm my frazzled nerves!!

    Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe and links to other recipes as delicious if not even more 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Chef – My pleasure! I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

  2. Cindy Reece says:

    Can you use can pumpkin for this recipe?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Cindy – You could, but it would become something pretty different. Plus you’d have a hard time spreading the almond mixture over the top without it totally mixing in. Might be worth a shot though if it’s all you have to work with. Let me know how it turns out if you try it!

  3. Can you use pumpkin that has been cut up and put I in the freezer? If so would you rec defrosting first?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      AZ – Yes, you could. I would thaw it first. Hope you enjoy it!

  4. I’m making this for the first time. I’m using precooked butternut squash for the filling part and everything else in the recipe is as listed. I have a Instan Pot IP-LUXaaa60 V3 The recipe says to cook the cake on cook on low for 4 hours. There is no low setting on my model so I used the “Slow Cook” setting for 4 hours. My Instant Pot directions said when using the “Slow Cook” have the “Pressure Release Venting”. There is and adjustment for temperature ” Less, Normal or More” but no heat range is listed in the manual. Any suggestions?

    1. Georgia – I don’t know much about that particular IP. Your best bet would be to ask online in an Instant Pot community, such as on Facebook. They are very good at answering questions like that. I wish I could be more help, but I just don’t know that particular appliance at all.

      1. What would you say is the “low setting” temperature listed in your recipe?

        1. Georgia – See my previous reply. There is no way for me to know. May appliance simply says “low”. Again, I would ask in an Instant Pot community. They can give you a better answer.

  5. Hi this is Georgia again. I just found a “Slow Cooker temperature range” for my Instant Pot. The “Normal” mode is 190-200 degrees F. The “More” temperature range is 200-210 degrees and the “Less” is 180-190 degrees. I’m making the “Slow Cooker Pumpkin Cobbler Recipe”? The butternut squash I used is pretty juicy if that makes any difference in your advise. I am presently using the normal range. Thanks for your help.

    1. Georgia – I don’t know what temperature a slow cooker cooks at, especially since each one cooks just slightly differently. Even if I knew the temperature ranges on my own slow cooker, it might not be exactly the same on yours. I would just opt for the lowest setting and see how it goes. It’s going to be a gamble one way or the other. You may have to cook it for an additional hour at the end with a vented lid (a wooden spoon handle holding the lid open just a bit) to cook out the extra liquid. But again, that’s just a guess. I’m very sorry. I just don’t know how to make adjustments for your appliance.
