Peach & Blueberry Cobbler

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.

"Just made it yesterday for some company and it was a hit! I used plums instead of peaches and threw in some raspberries along with the blueberries... its really good and guilt free! "

It was very easy to make! My husband cannot eat the cobbler without ice cream so we had to have it with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious! He said though it tasted good without ice cream too.


Made this over and over, using plums instead of peaches, as I am allergic to them. I also used whole wheat "InstaBake" by Hodgson's Mills for the flour mixture, brown sugar and Olivio and Brummel and Brown instead of butter. No one missed the butter! This is one of my most-requested Sunday brunch favorites and easy to assemble and bake.


I would avoid substituting coconut oil, it has saturated fat. Stick with the canola oil to be heart-healthy.

Some of this is true but, be careful, this is an opinion letter, not an article.

To make it even more healthy...I substituted coconut oil for the canola oil, substituted honey for the sugar and reduced the milk, It was wonderful!

I great healthy version if you can only eat one piece ;). I used 2.5 tablespoons of butter and with the oil you can still taste the butter so I may cut it down to 2 tablespoons and I used brown sugar as well. The next time, I am going to mix the blueberries into the batter just to see how that is. Overall, a great dish where you an experience with different fruits. Can you say cranberries?!
