It’s officially the weekend. I have a love hate relationship with weekends. I tend to splurge and make unhealthier choices on weekends. You know… watch an entire season of Pretty Little Liars in one day while I don’t shower and stay in my pjs. Just me? This weekend I’m determined to make healthy and wise choices that mostly have nothing to do with eating. But, just in case you feel like splurging this weekend but don’t want to eat an entire pan of brownies while watching an entire season of , I wanted to share this recipe with you!
A. It’s healthy. B. It’s a single serving! You can eat the entire thing and not feel even a little bit bad. You can also make it your own with any kind of fruit you have on hand. It would be deliciously yummy with frozen or even canned peaches, strawberries, or blackberries. You know.. it would even be food with a 1/2 cup of pumpkin and some pecans. Done! I will be making a pumpkin version of this cobbler this weekend. Oh and sauteed apples! Okay. I’m glad I decided to share this recipe with you because I’m totally experimenting with new flavors this weekend.
Single Serving Blueberry Cobbler
- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon Brummel and Brown yogurt butter
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Splenda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
- Dash of nutmeg
- Dash of cinnamon
Mix blueberries and sugar in a small bowl and set aside so the sugar can do it’s juicy job. You can smash your berries a little to help this process along. Prehat oven to 350. Spray a small ramekin with butter flavored cooking spray and then add the butter. Heat the ramekin in the oven until the butter is bubbly.
Note: Heating the dish with the butter in it makes the recipe great. It makes the cobbler more well… cobbler like! It adds the crispy and chewy components to the crust.
Mix flour, Splenda, baking powder, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a separate small bowl. Spread the mixture into the hot ramekin. Add the sugared fruit in the center of the batter, leaving a rim of batter around the edges. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the batter is golden brown around the edges and the center looks set.
If you count the blueberries in the recipe, it’s 5 points for the whole thing. If you don’t (and sometimes I don’t because fruit is free if you eat it plain!), then it’s 4 points! Plus whatever topping you may or may not add. If you add just a dollop of fat free cool whip or a frozen yogurt bite or two, nothing extra! It’s also perfectly fine with nothing extra at all.
