Gluten-Free Strawberry Cobbler
Checking in really quickly today with a recipe and step-by-step video of this gluten-free and vegan Strawberry Cobbler. I wasn’t kidding when I said I would be flooding this space with strawberry recipes this spring and summer :) Similarly to crumbles or crisps, cobblers are delightfully lazy fruit desserts that require no perfection on the cook’s part, but manage to come out a perfectly jammy and satisfying mess almost every time. Earlier this spring, I set out to develop a version that is both gluten-free and vegan, but also quick and with a manageable list of ingredients – here is the result!
Sweet summer berries don’t need much to taste good in a cobbler. In this recipe, I add a minimal amount of maple syrup to the berry mix, as well as lemon juice for a hint of brightness, and arrowroot powder to help make things jammy. You can easily adapt this recipe to use any fruit or berry, just use a little more maple syrup if you have fruit that’s less sweet than strawberries. The cobbler topping is made with a mix of gluten-free oat and corn flours, and comes out of the oven perfectly buttery (thanks to coconut oil/fat) and crumbly. The fruit and the topping marry so nicely with the contrast of juicy, sweet berries and buttery dough – it’s what cobbler is all about. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’re in heaven. Enjoy!
