My mother loves this recipe because it’s so easy to make. The Engine 2 crew calls it Dumpster Fire Cobbler because dumpster fires are one of the easiest fires we fight: contained, outdoors, and quickly extinguished with a pre-connected booster line on a hose reel. Easy deployment and easy clean-up, just like this cobbler!
Blueberry Dumpster Fire Cobbler
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk substitute
3 tablespoons agave nectar or maple syrup
2 cups blueberries
Combine flour and baking powder in a small bowl.
Combine vanilla, milk substitute, and agave nectar or maple syrup in a measuring cup.
Add contents of measuring cup to dry ingredients and mix until smooth. The batter will be runny.
Pour the batter into a non-stick 8-inch square pan. Sprinkle the blueberries over the batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until browned.
If you’re looking for an alternative to porridge in the mornings, this blueberry and almond milk smoothie recipe is great. Packed-full of healthy ingredients, whiz it up in a matter of minutes and drink it fresh, or stick it in the fridge to make a mousse-like treat for later.
1 punnet blueberries, washed and drained
200ml sugar-free almond milk
1 Chia shot (1 tsp)
Juice 1/2 lemon
1. Blend all ingredients until smooth and serve at room temperature.
Tip: If you make this the evening before and leave it in the fridge overnight, the Chia seeds will swell with the blueberries, and you will have a mousse-like pudding for breakfast instead.
