8 cups



  • 6 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 1 ¼ cups whole-wheat pastry flour

  • 6 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. To prepare filling: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 13-by-9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Combine blueberries, 1 cup sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, cornstarch and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; toss until the berries are coated. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  3. To prepare topping: Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter (or your fingers), work butter into the flour mixture until it resembles small pebbles.

  4. Whisk egg and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, and, using a fork, lightly toss until evenly distributed but not overmixed. Sprinkle over the blueberries in an even layer.

  5. Bake the cobbler until the topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
