If you’re anything like us girls in the office, you’ll think one thing when you see this cobbler recipe: as delicious as pie, without all the pie-making effort? Yes please!

I stumbled upon the idea of a healthier and more wholesome cobbler because I wanted something that resembled a pie without all the hard work of actually making a pie! I have always loved baking and have learned to be creative by making gluten-free and vegan recipes. That is why I thought that it would be great to cater to everyone's preference by delivering tasty, wholesome, and fun desserts like this berry cobbler. It is a great dish to serve in your upcoming family gatherings, and everyone will think you slaved away in the kitchen! Although it may not look like it, it is a great snack for those who seek to live a healthy and fit lifestyle due to the protein and healthy fat content.

For the biscuits
2/3 cup almond flour
½ cup millet flour (or other gluten free flour like oat or rice)
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
½ cup almond milk
¼ cup coconut oil (soft to hard texture is ok, doesn't have to be melted)*

For the fruit base
½ cup frozen strawberries
½ cup frozen blueberries
1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
½ tsp. cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.  Fill a round baking pan with the fruit base ingredients and stir.

2. In a medium-large bowl whisk together the almond, millet flour, baking powder, and salt. 

3. Add the wet ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.  The batter should be somewhat chunky and runny at the same time. 

4. Place the batter on top of the berry mixture and bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown. 

5. Serve with vegan ice cream and enjoy!  I topped it with So Delicious vanilla bean ice cream.

*Many people are wary of using coconut oil because certain brands have such a strong taste. My favorite brands of coconut oil are Dr. Bronner’s and Spectrum.  They have a neutral flavor that is suitable for all kinds of dishes.
