Blueberry Pecan Cobbler

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 21, 2010

I had some pecan flour in my freezer and came up with this grain free blueberry cobbler to try it out in a baking recipe.    It ended up turning out quite tasty .. even my picky 5 year old liked it!     If you don’t have any raw pecans around to grind into flour for this recipe, almond flour could be easily substituted.

Blueberry Pecan Cobbler

blueberry cobbler1 – 1 1/2 pint fresh blueberries
2 cups finely ground pecan flour (sources)
1/4 cup coconut flour (sources) 
1/2 cup date sugar (sources)
1 cup expeller pressed coconut oil (sources)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract (sources)
1 tsp organic cinnamon (sources)
1/2 tsp organic orange extract (sources)
1/2 tsp organic ground nutmeg (sources)
1/2 tsp baking powder (sources)
1/4 tsp sea salt (sources)

Spread the blueberries in the bottom of a glass baking dish – pick the size based on how deep you prefer your cobbler.    I used a round dish 10″ across.  Mix all ingredients together and pour over the top of the blueberries.  Bake at 350 F/177 C for 40 minutes or until topping is firm, golden brown and filling is bubbling.

* Please be sure to maximize the nutrition in your pecan flour by soaking/drying the raw pecans before grinding into flour.    For every 4 cups of pecans, add 2 tsp of sea salt to the filtered water and soak for 7 hours or overnight before drying at 150F on cookie sheets in your oven.

  1. Dear Sarah,
    i love to make my own yogurt from organic whole milk and have never tried raw milk or even unhomogeonized milk, but my love of enzymes and dairy is great and i would like to obtain the highest quality and most delicious milk i can and i figure fresh, creamy raw organic milk is the best and i saw on that you know where to get some and we live in the same area so can you please tell me where you buy your raw milk?

  2. Yay, a low-sugar/grain free dessert. I can do this, and blueberry season will be here before you know it! Thanks!

  6. Hi Sarah,
    I was just updating my dirty dozen/clean 15 list and saw that blueberries made the dirty dozen list this year. I don't know why the change, but thought I'd pass on the info.

    Thanks for the heads up about the new dirty dozen list, Daryl. I'm going to be blogging about this and EWG this week (May 10, 2010)
