Strawberry Apple Hazelnut Cobbler

Strawberry Apple Hazelnut Cobbler 2

This is another variation of my classic apple almond cobbler or peach almond cobbler. The fresh strawberries give out their natural sweet juices while baking with the apples and, combined with the ground hazelnut flour, make this cobbler absolutely sublime! I personally am going to be making this variation for our Thanksgiving feast!

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

FILLING

2 cups fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled and halved

2 medium apples, peeled, cored, diced

½ cup ground hazelnut flour*

½ cup whole wheat pastry flour

½ cup rolled oats

2 Tbsp (+ 1 tsp) regular smart balance or Melt Buttery Spread, room temperature

  2. Spread 1 tsp smart balance on a 9 inch pie dish.
  3. Combine all the FILLING ingredients in a bowl and place in pie dish.
  4. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
  5. Add smart balance or Melt Buttery Spread and kefir or buttermilk to the dry mixture and work with your fingers to make into a crumbly mixture
  6. Sprinkle evenly over filling
