Berrylicious “Crobbler”

Ever heard of a crobbler before? Probably not! This dessert is truly a “Tiffany original.” Inspired by the Northwest’s luscious berries, a crobbler is a cross between a crisp and a cobbler, making for one scrumptious dessert! The antioxidants that you’ll receive from a serving of this will give your body a lovely health kick. Enjoy!

Preparation Time: 5-8 minutes Cook time: 30 minutes | Yields: 6 servings

Topping

1 cup of gluten free flour (I like a mix of 1/3 coconut flour and 2/3 brown rice flour) and 1⁄4 cup almond meal OR gluten free oats
1⁄4 cup unrefined cane sugar (or 1/3 cup xylitol)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons organic butter or ghee
1 beaten egg
3 1⁄2 tablespoons milk (I prefer Hemp milk or gluten free rice milk)

Filling

5 cups of berries, apples, and/or pears (a little rhubarb is also nice if you like it a bit more tart). Frozen berries work just fine, you might just have to use a bit more arrowroot powder to get the right thickness.
1/3 cup agave syrup (or about 20 drops of stevia)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 to 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium saucepan heat the fruit, agave, lemon juice, and arrowroot powder. Cook until the mixture gets thick and hot (10 minutes or so).

2. In a mixing bowl combine the flours, almond meal (or GF oats), sweetener, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter until you have just small pebble sized bits of butter.

3. In a small bowl whisk together the milk and the egg and then add it to the flour and mix.

4. Pour the fruit mixture into an 8X8 baking dish. Top the fruit with dollops of the topping mixture or just crumble it over the top.

5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until golden on top. Let it cool at least 10 minutes. Try serving with “Coconut Bliss” frozen dessert (if you can find this product in your area).
