Blueberry cobbler is divine. I think it’s one of my favorite desserts (okay, the list is a bit long).
Those who need gluten free desserts often miss out on things like cobblers and fruit crisps, but not this time.
This blueberry cobbler recipe is gluten free, so it is perfect for those who can’t tolerate wheat products. You will see below that it’s very simple to make this a non gluten free dessert as well, so suit yourself. Either way I think you’ll love it.
Blueberries and other berries are so amazingly healthy for us. All berries are high in antioxidants but blueberries are an especially rich source of these vital nutrients. Antioxidants help protect the cells in our bodies from damage, and damaged cells lead to disease and aging.
Blueberry Cobbler (This One's Gluten Free!)
- 6 cups blueberries, fresh
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 3/4 cup all-purpose baking mix, gluten-free
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons milk, or milk substitute such as almond milk or soy milk
- 1/2 cup almonds, sliced, optional, see note below
- 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, optional, see note below
- 1 tablespoon egg white, optional, see note below
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Coat an 11" x 7" inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the blueberries in the dish. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of the granulated sugar, then add the orange zest. Toss or stir to coat the berries with the mixture.
- For the topping, in a small bowl, combine the baking mix, the remaining granulated sugar, the butter and milk. Mix it together well. Spoon the topping over the blueberry mixture.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
Before you put the cobbler in the oven, mix together the almonds, turbinado sugar (or regular sugar if you prefer) and the egg white. Brush the top of the cobbler with the mixture and bake. This mixture adds even more sweetened and a nice bit of crunch to the dessert.
Note: You can still make this recipe if you don’t want or need to eat gluten free recipes. Simple replace the gluten-free baking mix with all purpose flour.
