Blueberry Cobbler

I thought one of the best recipes we ever found was the Raspberry Peach Crumble, but Mom is less of a fan of crumbles than she is of cobblers, and we were hoping to find a recipe we would like. I stumbled upon one by the same gal who make the crumble, and the original recipe can be found here.

We didn’t have any fresh berries on hand, so we used frozen. I would encourage you to just use fresh berries unless you can figure out how much more arrowroot to add in to help set the extra juices produced by frozen berries. While ours didn’t quite set up the way we wanted it to, it was just delicious.

Biscuit
1 cup sifted almond flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 Tablespoons butter, cubed and cold
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg

Filling
4 cups blueberries
4 cups huckleberries
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon found cinnamon
4 Tablespoons arrowroot
1/3 cup maple syrup
Pinch of salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Make biscuits:
a. In a bowl stir together dry ingredients. Add in cold cubed butter and, using a pastry cutter or your fingers, break up the butter into the flour mixture until it is in small pieces.
b. Add in applesauce and egg and mix to completely combine. Using your hands, roll dough in to balls and then pat them into a biscuit shape about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and set aside.

3. In a large bowl, mix together the blueberries and the huckleberries, the lemon zest, lemon juice, arrowroot and syrup until well combined and pour into a 9×13 inch pan.

4. Top berries with the biscuits.

5. Cover lightly with foil and bake 20 minutes. remove foil and bake for an addition 20 minutes. Serve warm.

​6. Enjoy.
