A Healthy Strawberry Cobbler

February 28, 2012

Who say we can’t indulge on deliciously healthy dessert?  You don’t always have to feel guilty  about eating dessert  as long as you’re using the right ingredients you should feel good about what you eat. There are a few simple steps to sort out between junk desserts and healthy ones. Here’s what you need to know:

Ensuring that every meal and snack you consume have a combination of the three main micronutrients: “Carbohydrates with protein, Fiber and Fat” and we can easily  get these micronutrients from fresh high-quality sources. For instance, when baking avoid using white flour, it has been  processed  to death and bleached out of it nutrients, instead, ground some old fashion oatmeal with some of your favorite seeds such as pumpkin, sunflower, flax. Place it in your blender of food processor until flour consistency. For a delicious nutty milder flavor you can roast the nuts  first, same with white sugar. Use brown, honey or molasses as sweeter. The rule to follow is very simple, any white food has fewer nutrients than colorful ones.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious  and yes healthy cobbler:

  • 1/4 almond flour
  • 1/4 oat flour
  • 1/4 rice flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 honey
  • pinch os salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup of your favorite milk (I used  almond milk)
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries (sliced)
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp your favorite rum (optional)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)

Preparation

  1. Spray  a 13 -x-9 -inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking power and salt. Add milk, vanilla stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.  Pour batter over sprayed pan.
  3. Bring honey, strawberries, lemon juice and zest to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly.  Add a couple of Tbsp of your favorite rum to the fruit mixture. Pour over the batter (do not stir). Sprinkle  with cinnamon or nutmeg if desired.
  4. Baked  at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.

Enjoy it!
