Guilt Free Apple Oat Cobbler | Recipe

(Click here for more cooking ideas.)

Today's post is a gluten free fruit cobbler recipe.  These are great for breakfast, afternoon snack, or desert for health conscious guests.

Apple Oat Cobbler

30 minutes, serves 6.

1 cup of oats
2 large apples
Coconut oil (optional)
Walnuts (optional)
Berries or raisins (optional)

Cover the bottom and sides of an eight or nine inch glass pie pan with a thin layer of oats.  You may oil the pan lightly first, but it is not necessary.  Peel and slice the apples and layer them inside the pan.  Feel free to add other fruits if you wish.  This is excellent with peaches.  Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of your apples.  Add chopped walnuts if you wish.  Sprinkle the rest of the oats evenly over everything.  Drizzle honey evenly over that last layer of oats.

Bake the cobbler in the toaster oven.  I suggest trying whatever pizza setting you normally use.  The cobbler is finished when the oats have absorbed the honey and moisture from the fruit enough to stick together like a crumble dough and then lightly brown.  Serve hot.

Awesome Tip of the Day:  Cobblers are traditionally served with vanilla ice cream.  This one tastes great with yogurt.  You can also serve it with hand-beaten whipped cream.  Just pour a half cup of heavy whipping cream into a container with a teaspoon of honey.  Beat it by twisting a whisk in between your palms until it is light and foamy (think starting a fire with two sticks).
