5 Minute Blackberry Cobbler

By Chuck Underwood @brandnewvegan

My family LOVES fresh Blackberries, which we pick abundantly whenever we visit Washington State I might add….  And what better way to use all those fresh berries than cook them up in a yummy 5 Minute Blackberry Cobbler.

This 5 Minute Blackberry Cobbler is a single serving recipe, completely fat free and Vegan, perfect for those days you want a sweet and healthy treat.

I use freshly picked Blackberries with a little sugar and corn starch for my filling.  And add an Oatmeal/Brown Sugar Topping that will soon have you making seconds when the hubby or wife sneaks in to investigate the heavenly smells coming out of the kitchen.

Trust me on this….I’ve made 3 of these already ….

This recipe is similar to my Chocolate Mug Cake and Blueberry Muffin Mug Cake in that the entire dish can be made in a coffee mug or small bowl in just a few minutes in your microwave.

Warm, sweet berries, with a chewy, oatmeal crumb.  Mmmm mmmm the perfect treat.

If your berries are frozen, heat ½ cup of frozen blackberries in a microwave safe bowl or cup until thawed, then add 2 tsp of sugar and ½ tsp  of cornstarch and microwave for 30 seconds.

With a slotted spoon, remove the berries and place them in the bottom of a microwaveable coffee mug or small bowl.  You can either discard the juice left behind or pour it on top of your cobbler when it’s finished.

Meanwhile in a separate bowl, mix 3 Tbs of Rolled Oats, 1 Tbs Flour, 1 tsp Brown Sugar, ¼ tsp Baking Powder, and a pinch of salt until well blended.  Then stir in 2 tsp unsweetened Applesauce and 2 Tbs unsweetened Almond Milk to make a thick batter.

Spoon the batter mixture over the top of the berries and microwave for 1 minute.  Check the topping to make sure it’s done  – you may need to microwave an additional 30 – 60 seconds, depending on the wattage of your oven.

I hope you enjoy this treat, straight from the heart of the Pacific Northwest.

Blackberries are truly a superfood, noted for their high levels of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid and manganese.  Blackberries are also considered one of the strongest antioxidant foods consumed in the U.S.

Thank goodness they’re so yummy too
