Healthy Fruit and Nut Cobbler and What’s With Wheat?

Hi everyone,

As many of us know, wheat has become a big problem for many kids and adults in recent years. WHY????

Cyndi O’Meara has created a really interesting documentary that I implore you to watch. Spoil alert: It’s not about the wheat itself but what’s done to it.

In the meantime, I don’t think I have ever posted my friend Cynthia Green’s amazing Fruit and Nut cobbler that I served at a fundraising dinner last night. It has no wheat and it is absolutely delicious and satisfying. Enjoy!

Healthy Fruit and Nut Cobbler:

1 lb  defrosted frozen berries
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup almonds
1/3 cup pitted dates
1/3 cup cacao nibs (or you can use chocolate)
sprinkle of cardamom
sprinkle of cinnamon


Take defrosted bag of berries and put them in a strainer OVER a big bowl.
Drink the berry juice that comes out or boil it down for a berry sauce.
Place the defrosted berries and place in a pie plate and stir in the vanilla extract.
In a food processor or blender, pulse the cacao nibs, the dates, the nuts, the cinnamon and cardamom.
Sprinkle the chopped nut mixture over the fruit on the pie plate and refrigerate or serve.
Note: ONLY put the topping on RIGHT before it’s being served so it doesn’t get all mushy.
