New Recipe: Guilt-free Berry Cobbler
Each week as part of my duties with TheKitchenHotline.com I plan a full menu of meals that feed a family of four for an entire week. Each day’s menu feeds the family three meals plus a snack for the kiddies. These recipes need to be relatively easy to allow more quality time for the family to spend together. Another part of my charge is to come up with healthy recipes. Each week I will share one of these recipes with you. Here’s this week’s:
- 4 cups fresh or frozen organic any/all of blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup raw local honey or agave nectar
- 2 tablespoons organic AP flour
- 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
- 1/2 cup organic AP flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup coconut oil plus 1 tablespoon
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup organic low fat Greek yogurt or regular low fat yogurt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease the sides of a baking dish with the 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
To make the topping, stir together the sugar and the flour in a large bowl. With a fork, work the coconut oil into the flour mixture until it has a crumb-like texture. Fold in the cinnamon and the oats and set aside. Toss the berries in lemon juice and honey/agave then gently toss with flour. Pour the berry mixture into the greased baking dish and top with the crumble. Pack it down lightly. Place into the oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes; until the crumble is browned and the berries are bubbling. Serve topped with yogurt. Makes 8 serving.
