Cherry Cobbler
Cobblers are one of the most forgiving dishes when it comes to swapping refined sugars with more nutritionally robust options like date puree. To make date puree, pit dates, soak for an hour or so in just a little hot water, and blend until smooth. If you make too much, you can store it in the freezer for later use. If you prefer a more crumbly topping, add extra oats to get the desired texture.
3/4 c. old fashioned rolled oats
3/4 c. white whole wheat flour
Pinch of salt
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 c. olive oil
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. date puree, divided
6 c. cherries, stemmed & pitted
2 T. fresh lemon juice
