Bob’s Farm to Table: I have always grown strawberries and picked someone’s raspberry patch. Now that fresh berries are available year-round, I always add them to my favorite cobbler. We offset these bright, lightly sweetened berries with a hearty, oat-studded cake-y topping. The combinations of flavors and textures is out of this world! Serve the cobbler as is or with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (see page 307).

Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Topping:
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, ⅓ cup sugar, and lemon juice to a mixing bowl, and toss until sugar has dissolved and coated the fruit. Transfer fruit mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a clean mixing bowl, use a large fork to whisk all of the topping ingredients together, just until a batter has formed (do not overmix).
  4. Drop large dollops of the batter over the berries in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake for 50–55 minutes, or until the berries are bubbly in the center of the dish and the topping is golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. For 100 calorie portions, slice into 16 sections by cutting 4 rows by 4 rows.
