Print Friendly 

Description:
Fruit is an important part of a healthy diet because it’s filled with vitamins and antioxidants, high in fibre, low in fat and calories, and delicious to boot. Here’s a recipe for a blueberry dessert that will bring some fresh fruit into your meal.

Ingredients:
Filling
3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
1 tbsp (15 mL) cornstarch
¼ cup (60 mL) water
1 lb (450 g) fresh (or partially thawed frozen) blueberries
1 ripe medium pear, peeled, halved, cored, and diced
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon zest

Topping
¾ cup (180 mL) white whole-wheat flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled
2 ½ tbsp (40 mL) sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder
½ cup (125 mL) fat-free buttermilk
2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
1 egg white
1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest
¼ tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon

Canola oil cooking spray


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400° F/200° C.

2. Coat an 11 × 7-inch baking pan with canola oil cooking spray.

3. Combine sugar, cornstarch, and water in a large non-reactive saucepan. Stir until cornstarch is completely dissolved, then stir in berries and pears. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil 1 full minute. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tablespoon (15 mL) zest. Place fruit mixture in the baking pan.

4. Combine flour, 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of the sugar, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Combine buttermilk, canola oil, egg white, and remaining 1 teaspoon (5 mL) zest in a small bowl. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir until just blended. Spoon batter into eight small mounds on top of the filling. Mix remaining sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle on top of cobbler.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until filling is bubbly and a wooden pick inserted into the topping comes out clean. Let stand 20 minutes to absorb flavors.

Recipe
Lighter Bran Muffins
Category: Desserts
Description: Compared to the buttery, icing-piped white scones and tartlets in the pastry case, the bran muffin always seems like the obvious choice for the hungry healthy-breakfast browser. The bran adds a good bit of fiber and a little protein, too. But most bakery batters are made fluffy with white flour and sweetened with enough sugar to cover four glazed donuts—a 400-plus-calorie breakfast with more than 70g of carbs, most from refined sources like white flour and brown sugar. And the portion size? These muffins are enormous. Our mission: Bring the bran muffin back into balanced territory with 100% whole grains and no refined sugar—but still keep it moist and packed with flavour.
