Blackberry-Apple Cobbler

This is a super simple cobbler I came up with on the fly.  We have wild blackberries growing on our back hillside, so I like to take advantage of the cheap, and nutritionally bountiful berries when they are in season. James, from recently talked a little about the nutritional benefits of blackberries HERE. Delicious and nutritious!!

Blackberry-Apple Cobbler
Blackberry Filling:
1 1/2 C Fresh Blackberries
1/2 C + 2 tbsp Water
3 tsp Arrowroot Powder
Apple Filling:
2 Large Apples
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp raw honey
Cobbler Topping:
1 C Almond Flour
1/4 C Coconut Oil
2 tsp Honey

In small sauce pot, combine blackberries and 1/2 C of water. Allow to simmer till reduced slightly, about 10 minutes.  Combine remaining (2 tbsp) water and arrowroot powder and stir into blackberries. Remove from heat. 

Preheat oven to 350. Peal apples and slice.  Add Cinnamon and honey to sliced apples in 9 inch pie plate.  Stir in blackberry mixture.

Combine cobbler topping ingredients in a small bowl.
Gently sprinkle topping over prepared blackberry apple mixture.
 Place in preheated oven for about 30 minutes till apples are to desired crispness and topping is browned slightly. Enjoy plain, or with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.

A workout just picking them!
