GF No-Sugar-Added Summer Berry Cobbler
- 1 cup almond flour
- ½ cup tapioca flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons Lakanto brown sugar, coconut sugar or turbinado sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, chilled
- 1 whole egg plus1 egg white*
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 5 cups mixed fresh berries
- zest of 1 lemon
- 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
- 1/2 cup Lakanto sugar, Swerve or coconut sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
First Make the Biscuits:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F
- In a large bowl combine the almond flour, tapioca starch, coconut flour, Lakanto brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Rub the cold coconut oil into the dry ingredients until you’ve reached the texture of coarse breadcrumbs.
- Add in the egg, egg white, and vanilla. Using your wooden spoon or your hands, bring the dough together into a ball. Once the dough has come together set aside to make the filling.
- In a large bowl combine the mixed berries, lemon zest, and juice, tapioca starch, sugar, and cinnamon. Gently fold everything together until the lemon juice, sugar ,and tapioca starch have formed a sauce, coating the berries.
- Transfer the berries to a 9-inch cast iron pan or casserole dish of your choice.
- Press the dough into one even layer, about 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out 6 rounds and place them on top of the berries.
- Loosely cover the cast iron pan with foil then bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and bake for another 20-25 minutes uncovered, until the biscuits are golden brown and the berries are burst and have formed a shiny sauce.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool just slightly before serving with vanilla ice cream!
- Cover and store leftover cobbler in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
