This easy fruit cobbler is made with wholesome ingredients and is free of dairy, eggs, and refined sugar, with a gluten-free alternative.
Summer fruits are just the best. When they’re on sale, I buy a bunch with the best plans to freeze a bunch for the winter. The only problem is that we end up eating it all before I have the chance to prep them for the freezer!
Besides just snacking on it fresh, I love using it in pies, crisps, tarts, cakes, pancakes, and muffins…There are so many possibilities! This cobbler is another favorite. It’s fruit smothered in a simple vanilla cake. It’s delicious enough for dessert, yet wholesome enough to enjoy for breakfast or brunch.
The nice thing about this cobbler is that you can use a combination of your favorite fruit, either fresh or frozen—blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, plums, and cherries are all delicious ideas!
I usually keep a bag of mixed berries in the freezer for my smoothies, so I threw a few cups into this cobbler, along with fresh sliced strawberries, cherries, and peaches. It’s like summer in a bite! Such a yummy combo!
This cobbler is great with a cup of coffee, a scoop of ice cream, or my favorite, a glass of almond milk! Enjoy!
