Breakfast Blueberry Cobbler

Dessert for Breakfast? Yes please, and thank you very much! This is (in my humble opinion), the ultimate breakfast. It includes a serving of fruit, not just any fruit but blueberries and strawberries! Contains a whole grain (love you oatmeal), protein in the form of yogurt, is low in sugar and tastes just like you're eating a dessert!

It starts with using fresh blueberries. In the winter, I could easily see using frozen as well.

Topped with oatmeal, a bit of brown sugar, cinnamon and a touch of butter.

Fresh out of the oven, topped with a combination of plain yogurt, strawberries, bananas and honey.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe. How about peach cobbler with blueberries in the yogurt? Or doing some combination of 3 different berries, blueberries raspberries and strawberries? Don't forget to comment on whatever variations you come up with–Enjoy!

Breakfast Blueberry Cobbler

2 cups fresh (or frozen) blueberries
1 1/4 oatmeal (old fashioned or quick cooking, not instant)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 Tablespoons butter

1 cup plain yogurt
sliced strawberries
sliced bananas
1 Tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 350
Divide blueberries between 4 ramekins. Combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. Use your hands to incorporate butter into mixture. Sprinkle oats mixture evenly over blueberries. Bake for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile combine all ingredients for topping. When cobblers are done baking, evenly distribute yogurt mixture between the 4 cobblers or place yogurt mixture on table and allow individuals to use desired amount.

Yield: 4 servings
