We have been feasting on blackberries for the past two weeks. The brambles that have consumed our backyard are finally rip for the picking! Walking outside, you are engulfed with the smell of ripening blackberries. It is quite magical. Blackberries are special to me because every summer, my mom and I would go and pick them for hours. We would drive miles and miles, wade through streams, endure the sting of thorns and fight off bugs all for the sake of blackberry treats like cobbler, pie and jam.
In the spirit of her memory, I present you with a gluten free gem of a dessert that is light on sugar and big on flavor.
Berry Delicious Cobbler
Makes about 12 bars
1 egg, 1 egg white
3/4 cup Almond Milk
1/4 cup Apple Butter (or your desired sweetener)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup garbanzo bean flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 or more cups desired fruit (I used blackberries)
Combine wet and dry ingredients.
Pour approximately 1/3 of batter over peaches and stir slightly to allow batter into the layers of fruit. Pour remaining batter over top, spreading evenly. Slightly tap on counter to help air bubble rise to the surface. Bake approximately 20-30 minutes until batter is browned and not runny in the center. Cool for five minutes and enjoy!
