How many of you have a Sunday night ritual? I enjoy my Sundays, those are the days I I take a break from teaching and work and try to make a nice dinner for family and friends. What I really look forward to are Sunday night desserts. I made this a few weeks ago and it tasted fresh, juicy and crisp; perfect for a hot August night in California. This topping would go great with any fruit and I really like that it’s not too sweet, as you can taste the berries over the topping. Enjoy!
Blueberry & Strawberry Cobbler
3 cups fresh fruit
3 tbsp. white wheat flour
4 tbsp. non-dairy, non-hydrogenated butter
1/4 cup quick oats (not steel cut)
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 tsp. arrowroot powder or cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss berries with arrowroot and place into oven safe dish. Lightly dot with 1 tbsp. butter. Combine the oats, nuts, sugar, vanilla, flour, salt, and remaining butter (melted). Scatter topping over fruit and bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden brown. A la’ mode topping? Even better!
