BlackBerry Cobbler

1 c self rising flour
1 c sugar
1 c milk
1/2 stick butter
1-2 pints blackberries

Preheat oven to 350*
Mix the flour, milk, butter and 3/4 c sugar in a large bowl. Pour into a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with blackberries then remaining 1/4 c sugar. Bake for 1 hour.

That’s it! Easy as that. You can top it with fresh whipped cream. Yum.

Coconut milk works great!

Cleaned Up Blackberry Cobbler

1 c unbleached self rising flour (King Arthur)
OR
1 c flour of your choice – gluten free, almond(very dense), buckwheat, spelt, millet, quinoa, brown rice, sorghum, oat or a combination of these
1 1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

3/4 c stevia
1 c almond milk
2 T unsweetened applesauce
1-2 pints organic blackberries

Follow the same directions as above. Except, rather than buttering the dish use a healthy oil. You can use a variety of berries and other fruits too.

Want to make them even better and protein packed?

Substitute a 1/4 c of the flour with vanilla protein powder!
You may want to lessen the stevia a bit if you don’t like things too sweet.
The protein powder is sweetened after all.

Did I also mention this one is cheap?
Frozen berries are fairly inexpensive. And they are flash frozen at the peak of freshness so there is no worry about them lacking nutrients. You can even find them along rivers and streams (and other places too) growing wild in many areas in late summer. I forage berries every year!

What is your favorite cobbler?

Live Well!
