SF/GF Fruit Cobbler

So this weekend I had these raspberries and I thought, "I want cobbler". So I made it! And don't even ask me how much of it I ate. Cause then I'd have to explain that Clay doesn't like cobbler, and I'm the only other human that lives in our house. 

I discovered better batter flour when I saw tons of people using it on gluten free blogs and stuff. They claimed it worked wonders! Well, I looked at our health food store and they didn't have the mix, so I worked my google magic and found a mock recipe for the better batter flour blend. The link is down in the recipe. I have to say this- this blend works WONDERS for cinnamon rolls. And it turned out beautifully for this cobbler! I still would rather use my other blend for other things because I don't think this blend is quite as healthy as my other blend. However, it's good for cinnamon rolls and in my book, that means they should be praised. I plan on doing a whole other post about THAT. 

 Fruit Cobbler (Gluten Free, Sugar Free)
 adapted from Better Batter Recipe

4 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup Better Batter Flour*
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk
2 cups sliced fresh or frozen (12 oz pkg) peaches, nectarines, whole blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, pitted cherries or a combination of fruits
1 Tablespooon coconut sugar

Preheat oven to 350
Put butter in 8 or 9 inch square pan (I use a glass one and melt the butter in the microwave – or you can set the pan in the preheating oven to melt the butter)

Whisk Better Batter Flour, 3/4 cup coconut sugar, and baking powder in small bowl. Add milk, whisk to form a smooth batter.

Pour batter over melted butter in pan.

Scatter fruit over batter. Sprinkle with remaining 1 Tablespoon of coconut sugar.

Bake at 350 until batter browns and fruit bubbles, 50-60 minutes.

When using frozen fruit, do not defrost.

 *If you aren't gluten-free, this could totally be subbed out for white flour.

So... what's the diff between coconut sugar and regular sugar? Because you would think sugar is sugar! But does coconut sugar seriously constitute it to be sugar free? So is it calorie free? How is it different than sugar substitute? It seems like a miracle that I need to get my hands on!

I have totally been wanting cobbler lately. And I never crave cobbler. Perfect timing! But I just went shopping last night!!! I don't have potato flour or the pectin. Pectin was a surprise. My health food store lied to me and said they had sorghum when I called and it wasn't there! So now I have no flour mix! But they had all these things.

Looks yummy, but I don't know if I've ever had cobbler. Maybe a couple times, but not regularly. You are so amazing with being healthy and are so good about following your diet! Love you so much!
