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.

Wellness Tip
Never Too Late to Start Exercising
A 2001 study in the journal, Circulation, found that six months of endurance exercise largely reversed the negative effects of 30 years of inactivity! If you are a long-time non-exerciser, start now. Work towards 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise on 5-7 days per week. If you already do moderate or more intense exercise on a regular basis, keep up the good work!
