BLUEBERRY-OAT BISCUIT COBBLER

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who's been on a fruit bender as of late. My favorite is strawberries (the best of which have passed in my particular opinion), with cherries, peaches, nectarines and blueberries tied for second place, which means this time of year I am in fruit euphoria. Most of it is getting eaten raw, but in order to get my better half to really get into this goodness, it needs to make it's way into a baked good or dessert of sorts. I found this recipe while flipping through the recent Bon Appetit and the simplicity of it caught my eye. I reduced the sugar, added in some whole grains, and now have a wonderful cobbler that dishes up beautifully as dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but can also be excused as a breakfast treat with a dollop of yogurt on top.

BLUEBERRY OAT BISCUIT COBBLER // Serves 6

Adapted from August 2012 Bon Appetit
The magazine also suggests that this can be done in six 6 oz. ramekins which sounds perfect for having people over. I think this would work great with a mix of fruits too - maybe mix in some blackberries or peaches.

 

  • 1 cup plus 3 Tbsp. white whole wheat flour (I imagine spelt or quinoa flour would work)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3 Tbsp. plus 1/2 cup natural cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 Tbsp. chilled, unsalted butter, cut into 1/2'' pieces
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 6 cups blueberries (about 2 lbs.)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon zest
  • vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt for serving

 

Preheat oven to 375'. Whisk 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup oats, 3 Tbsp. sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add butter, using your fingers and smush it in to make pea-size clumps. Gently mix in yogurt. Knead until biscuit-like dough forms, being careful not to overmix.

Combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar, remaining 3 Tbsp. flour, berries, juice and zest in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Pour into 8x8 baking dish (or ramekins). Tear biscuit topping into quarter sized pieces and scatter over berries.

Bake cobbler until juices and thick and bubbling and topping is cooked through and golden brown. 20-25 minutes for ramekins and 40-45 minutes for baking dish. Let is rest at least 45 minutes.

Between the oats and the blueberries, what's not to love. Oh, and the photo of the measuring cups is fantastic!!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterIdaBaker

Yes! More cobblers for breakfast please. Desserts that segue nicely into breakfast time are totally my kinda food. Love those little rivers of blueberry in the melty vanilla ice cream. Gorg!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

That last photo of the berries floating in the melted ice cream made my mouth water... Beautiful & delicious!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline @ Pink Basil

Sara, I had seen, and admired, your site before, and came across it again with Heidi Swanson's last post. I also share your love of whole foods, and can't wait to be even more inspired by your cookbook. On another note, this cobbler looks stain-your-teeth-blue fantastic! Especially with the addition of greek yogurt in the preparation, my mouth is already watering. Thank you for continually providing your readers with great recipes and photographs!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJill @ 42potatoes

This looks delicious! And the picture of the measuring spoons is begging to go on my kitchen wall! I love it!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

Hugh's photos are always gorgeous, but I'm especially entranced by these. I love the idea of having this cobbler for breakfast :)

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDessertForTwo

Beautiful! I always feel like cobblers have way too much sugar most of the time. I want to taste the fruit more than anything!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

oh my word! cobbler has been a big staple in my family, and though we always eat peach cobbler, i think it'd be nice to try something new. thank you oh-so much, it looks delicious!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjocee

This looks so delicious. I have been eating A LOT of fruit lately too and can't stop buying more because I know it will be all gone soon. Summer fruit is so fleeting. I would think oat flour might be nice too?

Thanks for the beautiful post.

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

i just started my own blog and am realizing how hard it is to be creative with every post and it's pictures. these are incredible! i would put these pictures up in my kitchen... looks delicious too :)

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterwendy

The blueberry photos!!!! Well, and all of the photos. And the finished product doesn't look half bad either. ;) I'm dreaming of that melted pool of ice cream mixed with the cobbler.

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

Thank you. It looks amazing!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCarin

This sounds positively delicious! I love anything "cobbler"...so good.

This looks and sounds amazing!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTender B.

oh this is just beautiful! the pictures are absolutely stunning!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSimply Life

To me, nothing beats a warm dessert topped with ice cream. The topping sounds particularly wonderful!

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAlicia

Mmm. I wish my "better" half (he's so not better) could be coaxed into eating fruit in such a manner. But he's pretty much suspicious of anything with seeds, which is why I'm better! :)

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLinda

So, so beautiful. I love the water hitting the blueberries - just gorgeous.
I am happy to see so much good press for your book! Can't wait to look through it.

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersarah

How divine! Is there anything more superb than summer berries?

August 2, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCleo

Gorgeous Sara, the perfect way to enjoy the summer produce.

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

What wonderful close-up shots. Those blueberries look divine!

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterthecitygourmand

Beautiful photos and delicious looking cobbler. It being the middle of winter here, I'm envying your berries and stonefruits.

Summer, despite the yucky temperatures it brings to Texas, always brings my favorite fruits. I'm with you on the fruit bender. For me right now it's blueberries and peaches. I can't seem to get enough! This recipe is gorgeous and has the added plus of combing two of my favorite things: oats + blueberries! Love it!

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCourtney

i remember you getting overly excited about hoarding fresh cherries in our dorm room...i think your mom stocked you up with them when she came to visit or something

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercourtney

This sounds divine! The next time I see blueberries on sale, I will absolutely be making this!

Adoring the final shots. The close up on the right just oozes with sensuality. Love it. Beautiful, as always, Hugh.

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterkelsey

Gorgeous. It is blueberry season here in New Hampshire. Can't wait to make this.

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDena

I just recently came across your blog and the photos are truly beautiful and creative! Sprouted Kitchen is now in my blog roll rotation and I can't wait to start trying your recipes.

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJenny D

Gorgeous! I love that this looks like it's kind of between a crisp and a cobbler, or at least how I think of them. I love blueberries so much and the topping on this sounds fantastic.

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi @ Food Doodles

I always say that I never get sick of summer fruit- especially berries and stone fruit. I'm pretty much right there with you in fruit euphoria. Right now, I'm love blackberries, peaches, nectarines and raspberries...this cobbler looks like a fantastic start OR end to the day! xo

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKasey

Just gorgeous. I found your blog through Brian from A Thought for Food, and what a lovely surprise. The cobbler looks lovely. Ever since visiting Maine in early July, I can't stop dreaming of blueberries. This looks delicious. Thank you for sharing!

August 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMonet

This looks delicious. Bilberries (wild blueberries that can be foraged for in the UK) are my favourite, so I will definitely be trying this one out. Thank you for sharing it. Victoria@bilberrytart

Heavenly dessert! Its been a long time I had a fresh taste dessert at home. This will be serve for tomorrow. thanks for this dear.

August 4, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterwaka network

I love your take on a biscuit topping. And yes, I have been on a fruit bender of epic proportions. It is just the best.

August 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKimberley

Wow this looks incredible. I've been hitting up the farmer's markets for fresh fruit this summer. Can't get enough! :)

August 4, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterYumi

Oats and blueberries are amazing! Loving these photos!

August 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFull Flavored Life

Blueberries are my favorite. Certainly my favorite berry. Nectarines are my favorite fruit. Probably. Anyway, we were in Whole Foods today and Spencer asked for apples and Graham asked for pears and I was like, "Are you CRAZY?? We are in the midst of stone fruit, melon, berry nirvana!! No fall fruits for you!" Crazy mom for sure.

August 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDana

This is an amazing idea to do for breakfast. I'm gonna bookmark it and do it next Saturday for brunch!

August 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMike

We both adore cobblers of any fruity kind. Love the photos!

Lately, the grill has tempted us into making fruity desserts topped with a crisp-sort-of- topping and our cast iron skillet (the small one). We pop that on the grill as dinner comes off the grill, and then dessert is perfectly prepared as we eat. Plus the kitchen stays cool.

Hey Sara, I "awarded" you a Versatile Blogger Award! To see what that means, visit this post on my blog: http://granolameetsgrits.com/2012/08/07/versatile-blogger-award/#

On the one hand I am thrilled to share your blog with my readers because I like it so much, but on the other hand I am sorry because I realize this is kind of like those silly chain letters I always threw away when I was younger. :) If you would rather not post about this on your blog, I will not be offended in the least. Just wanted to include you on my list of favorites, that is all!

Let me know if you have any questions I can answer, though I don't know much about this thing myself. :) Have a good day!

August 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSharon

This looks amazing. I made one similar, here's the link http://therealfoodrunner.blogspot.com/2012/07/naturally-sweetened-summer-blueberry.html

August 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKatherine

Crispy, buttery, sweet streusel; plump, juicy blueberries; and creamy, vanilla-y ice cream... This looks simply divine!!

August 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSophie @ happyspinach

YUM

August 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristin

You guys have a beautiful blog. Just watched your trailer for the book - loved it! :)

August 7, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLindsay @ Pinch of Yum

Seriously, you amaze me every single time. This looks absolutely amazing, especially a la mode!

August 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChristina

This looks beautiful. Your pictures are amazing. Plus, your trailer for your cookbook looks great. I can't wait to see the final product :)

Wow! I'll definitely try this next week-end. I always drawn oats in lots of milk,I wanted to replace it with yoghurt but I didnt know how. Before this recipe. Thanks!

August 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDaniela @ FoodRecipesHQ

This looks so wonderful! I love the pictures you post!

September 5, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBeglaubigte Übersetzung

This was a hit at my dinner party! I made it with some wild blueberries and served with home made vanilla olive oil ice cream. My stomach is growling just thinking about it again.

September 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJody @ The Scarlet Spoon

I must be dumb but was I supposed to add the yogurt to the biscuit mix? The recipe seemed to omit it so I thought that was for your topping suggestion.
