Keyword: blueberry cobbler
- 2 cups blueberries
- sweetener (like Stevia or Splenda) equal to 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp lemon zest
- 1 cup water
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- sweetener equal to 2 tsp sugar
- 3 Tbsp butter or vegan margarine
- 1/4 cup milk, dairy or non-dairy
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine blueberries, sugar substitute, vanilla, lemon zest and water in a small saucepan. Bring to boil and simmer, stirring, until the sweetener is dissolved.
Mix cornstarch with 1 Tbsp water and add to blueberries mixture. Bring to boil. Cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour into lightly buttered pie dish (or 4 ramekins for individual servings) and cover with topping.
TOPPING: Mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar substitute and butter in a food processor or by hand until the mixture is crumbly. Add milk and process until the mixture just holds together.
Using your hands, shape small pieces of dough and lay them on top of the filling.
Bake until golden, about 30 minutes.
I don’t think you can call this “sugar-free” and then include sugar in the recipe or an equivalent sweetener. Sugar-free entails that you don’t need sugar in the recipe, not that you need to replace it.
Also, in your instructions, you repeatedly use the word sugar. It’s a good recipe, but you really don’t need to lie. And SHOULDN’T lie just to get views.
There is no need for harsh words.
I remade an old recipe for cobbler and used sugar substitute instead of sugar. But I made a mistake while typing the recipe. It was not my intention to fool anybody.
I avoid suggesting people which specific sweetener to use because some prefer Stevia, others like Splenda or xylitol or maltitol or artificial sweeteners. That is why I say the amount of sugar that you are supposed to replace with the sweetener of your choice.
Amanda actually has it right, although she’s wrong in her reasons and definitely didn’t say it well.
My mom has diabetes, so I am always looking for good recipes for her to use. Sugar-free means that there is no sugar at all in the food. Fruit has natural sugar in it, so the best description for this would be no-sugar-added. Otherwise, the description is a bit misleading, especially for those who don’ t know better.
That said, I am definitely looking forward to trying this out!
Thanks for posting. I will defiantly try it. I think most people would know to use sugar substitute. I believe some get online just to call out posters who have made slight errors! Pay no attention to them and keep posting!👍🏻😊
Yum! this cobbler looks insane! And the blueberry makes it extra summery, Love it!
I think this looks wonderful. Thank you.
I’m looking for ways to reduce sugar content in our diet. This is a good way to do that and not feel like you have to give up everything. Thank you so much.
That is exactly the purpose of this blog. To show that you can eat healthy AND tasty.
Wow! It looks divine. Some time agi I baked rhubarb cobbler and it was tasty but I feel like your verion must be 100 times better!
Oh, I’m sure your cobbler was delicious as well.
I buy the frozen organic blueberries at Costco & usually don’t need any sweetener if I’m just munching on them. Will definitely try this & hope my husband enjoys & not think only healthy, then his stubborn side kicks in & says no good BUT we all know better. 🙂
