Peach & Blueberry Cobbler

Rating: Unrated

This is a healthier version of a traditional cobbler, with canola oil in place of some of the butter and whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. Unlike more classic biscuit-topped cobblers, the peaches and blueberries are nestled into a tender batter that swells around the fruit as it bakes. Other fruits may be substituted. It's especially beautiful when baked in and served right from a cast-iron skillet.

Make sure to reserve a portion of the peaches as you puree the mixture so the pops will be packed with icy cold, chunky bits of fruit. For a grown-up twist, try adding 1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint, lemon verbena or basil.

A combination of Greek yogurt and buttermilk in the batter makes for a moist and tender cake, and swapping out all-purpose flour for white whole-wheat flour ups the nutritional value without affecting the taste or texture of this delicious coffee cake.

Tomatoes may seem like an odd dessert ingredient, but their tangy flavor lends a pleasant balance to the sweet peaches in this healthy dessert recipe. To make individual cobblers, divide the filling and crust among twelve 8- to 10-ounce ovenproof dishes; bake until golden, about 50 minutes.

English Muffin Breakfast

While not your traditional breakfast, this meal contains all essential parts of a balanced meal. Cottage cheese is an excellent source of protein and is packed with calcium, phosphorus, and B vitamins.
