Why Make This Gluten Free Cobbler
This cobbler is allergy friendly and makes for a quick, light dessert everyone loves. I enjoy making this cobbler year round but summer is the best time for fresh strawberries or blueberries. This gluten free cobbler can also be made with fresh blueberries. You have got to try it!
If you aren't gluten free, don't worry you will still LOVE this one, the almond flour gives a wonderful texture and flavor as the base for the crust. The ingredients are simple and delicious.
This gluten free cobbler has a nice crispy crust intertwined with a sweet gooey strawberry center.
Fresh Fruit. Fresh strawberries or blueberries will work great. I don't like to use frozen fruit because it tends to hold a lot of moisture and can make the cobbler a little soggy.
Almond Flour. I have only made this recipe with almond flour and I love it. It adds a nice nutty flavor, extra protein and makes the recipe gluten free.
Sugar. White granulated sugar for sweetness.
Oil. use avocado oil or a neutral flavored olive oil.
All other ingredients and measurements are listed below in the recipe card
Strawberries. Use fresh blueberries or blackberries in place of strawberries to make a gluten free blueberry cobbler (yum!)
Coconut Oil. You can also use olive oil or avocado oil.
