Faux Fruit Cobbler

Here are the pictures I promised earlier!

Faux peach cobbler with cinnamon and granola:
Aaand faux strawberry cobbler with chocolate chips and graham cracker pieces.

Thanks to summertime we have an abundance of lovely fresh fruit at great prices at our local grocery stores. Me being the trying-to-eat-healthier-desserts person, I have been looking for different ways to up the nutritional value for my sweet teeth (since you can never have just one sweet "tooth").

The result...Faux Fruit Cobbler! Much healthier and still oh-so-delicious.

I just finished eating a bowl of it, but I will post a picture the next time I make some and remember to take a pic - promise :)

  • 1 piece of your favorite ripe stone fruit (peach, nectarine, pluot, whatever you have handy and want to eat :) ), cut into large chunks with the pit removed
  • Cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp. granola or crushed up graham crackers, depending on your preference. Any cookie crushed up would be lovely as well.
  • Optional: 2 tbsp. chocolate chips (I forgot these tonight, but they get all melty and gooey and are just fabulous. Do it! :) )

  • Put your fruit into a bowl and add cinnamon to taste. Stir the fruit around so it all gets coated with cinnamon.
  • Add your granola/graham cracker/cookie pieces (and chocolate chips if you wish) on top.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds or until the chocolate is just starting to melt.
  • Mix, eat with a spoon and don't forget to take a picture for your blog :)

P.S. Thanks to Maren for her nice award today! I feel special :)
