Strawberry, Pear & Apple Cobbler

u

Ok… this is a recipe I have on replay.  I’ve posted the “Peach” version during the Vegan Challenge, and I substituted pears instead of peaches.  But I have to say… this dessert was elevated to a whole new level when I tried berries in it.   Then again, summer strawberries just make everything better. 🙂

This recipe is so simple and it’s doesn’t contain any sugar… just 1/4 of maple syrup for the whole recipe.  The natural sweetness of the fruit makes this dish a healthy choice.  The finished product is a luscious dessert.

Here’s the recipe:

Fruit Filling:

2 pears, peeled, chopped coarsely

2 apples, peeled, chopped coarsely

(Note: you can use all pears or all apples… any variation will work here)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

a pinch of salt

Strawberry Layer

A whole bunch of washed strawberries, stems removed, cut in half

(Note: you can skip this layer, or use any other fruit your heart desires… think raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, apricots, mango, pineapple, peaches)

Crumble Topping

1 cup pecans

1 cup dates

2 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

Assemble:

1) Add all of the fruit layer ingredients to a food processor and pulse until coarsely broken down and ingredients are well mixed.

2) Spoon fruit layer into baking dish.

3) Top with fresh strawberries (as many as you like… the more the merrier)

4) Add all the crumble topping ingredients to a food process or and pulse until crumbly.

5) Sprinkle crumble topping evenly over strawberries.

6) Bake at 350 F for 30 -40 minutes… until the fruit is soft and bubbling.  Enjoy!
