Blueberry Cobbler ­

Low Carb and Gluten Free

3 c. blueberries
¼ t. xanthan gum (to thicken)
2 T. Splenda (or other sweetener)
1 t. lemon juice 

2 T. butter
? c. almond flour
2 T. Splenda (or other sweetener)
½ t. lemon zest 


Spray or grease a 9 inch square baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the blueberries, xanthan gum, sweetener, and lemon juice and mix well until the blueberries are coated.  Add the blueberry mixture to prepared pan (or smaller ramekins.)

Melt the butter in the microwave in an average sized coffee mug or bowl. Stir in the almond flour, sweetener, and lemon zest until a crumbly dough forms. Crumble the dough over the blueberries in pea (or larger) sized clumps.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the blueberries are bubbling.

Serve warm or cold. I whipped some heavy cream with Splenda for a topping.

About the Author
Linda (LRuthers)



     I'm convinced that there are many more bad recipes than there are bad cooks. The problem is that sometimes decent cooks use bad recipes and then believe that the poor results are their fault.

     When people print recipes in cookbooks, magazines, etc. or when they post them online, they seldom tell the pitfalls or the little tips needed to make the recipe turn out well. And, too, quite a few printed recipes contain typos!

     I search for recipes that are good. Dependable. I'm not a chef. I'm a mother and grandmother who's been cooking for >45 years.

     I believe that any recipe posted for the general public should be one that I can master. If not, there's something wrong with the recipe.

     I post my successes and my failures, and tell what I learned when following each new recipe. I learn more from my mistakes. I don't know what that says about me.

     The very best recipes are the ones that are inexpensive, delicious AND easy. And there are a lot of those.

     Sometimes, I spend a little more and work a little harder for a recipe that seems to be one that will make people really happy.

Thanks, Linda
