Two Berry Cobbler

Berry cobbler is one of the most popular dessert of summer time because of the availability of fresh fruits; also this is the nice way to combine fruits with grain for a balanced dessert. But this two berry cobbler is modified by me so that I can have it as a breakfast or evening snack with a cup of green tea or your favorite coffee. The texture is somewhat different than regular cobbler because I have used whole wheat flour and coconut oil rather than butter.

But if you want to serve it as a dessert than I suggest serving it with a scoop of frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream. I have opted for strawberries and Canadian wild blueberries for this two berry cobbler; you can also use your favorite berries, cherries or even peaches for this recipe.

Note: I have used foil pan for easier clean-up; if you are concerned about uneven cooking in foil pans than place foil pan inside a glass/metal baking dish before baking. A nice way to evenly bake your food and to share with family and friends.
