Tweet Share on Facebook

August 19, 2010

This cool cobbler is perfect for a hot summer day - or any time of year, really! Mix it up and add any berry that you like and top it with some non-dairy vanilla ice cream.


  • 4 cups blackberries (or other berries) (fresh or defrosted)
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates (pitted and packed)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds (or other nuts)
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates (pitted and packed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 Tablespoons water
  1. In a food processor, place 2 cups of blackberries, 1/2 cup of medjool dates and the lemon juice and process until smooth.
  2. Spoon the blackberry mixture into an 8 x 8-inch (or similar sized) glass dish. Add the remaining 2 cups of blackberries to the dish, and stir well.
  3. Wipe out the food processor, add the oats and almonds and process until finely ground.
  4. Add the remaining dates and salt to the processor and thoroughly process.
  5. Add the water and process until the whole mixture sticks together. Add more water if needed.
  6. Spread the oat mixture on top of the blackberries with your hands. It's fine if clumps remain. The pie is ready to be served. Or place it in the refrigerator for later.
Yield: About 4 servings
