Sweet Treats: Personal Peach-Blueberry Cobblers

By , SparkPeople Blogger
My fridge is full of the last blueberries of the season, and an overflowing basket of white peaches is ripening on the counter. It's about 8 p.m. on a Sunday, and my boyfriend and I have just cleaned up from dinner and are just settling down to read. About 30 minutes later, I am restless. I glance longingly at the peaches. I've eaten three since yesterday, leaning over the sink to catch the juice that runs down my chin. The sweet, succulent flesh pulls clean off the pit and the downy skin is soft against my tongue. Sigh. I'm craving cobbler, but I don't want to expend the energy (or the calories). Then remember I have whole wheat fillo dough in the freezer. Maybe…

Success!

I wash and skin one ripe peach, rinse a cup of blueberries, and cut a 2-inch length from the end of the frozen dough. I chop the dough into bits and flake it with my fingers.
After a dusting of sugar, the berries and sliced peach go into a small greased casserole, and I cover them with the flaky dough. A spritz of nonstick cooking spray and a bit more sugar and some cinnamon, and the dish is ready for the oven.

A half-hour later, our dessert is ready. We devour it with two spoons and no guilt. This makeshift cobbler has just 163 calories and 2 grams of fat.

Daily Spark Tip:
Blueberries are seriously good for you. I eat at least a handful most mornings, with yogurt and homemade granola, in oatmeal or atop cereal and soy milk.

Blueberries are small and mighty, known for their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. They also contain anthocyanin, the antioxidant that gives the berry its deep color and may also help improve learning and memory (according to studies on mice). Like most berries, blueberries are rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, as well as B vitamins, fiber and vitamins C, E and K.

Blueberries have been proven to protect against mental deterioration, they contain more antioxidants than almost any other fruit, and they are chock full of nutrients.

A cup (two servings) has just 80 calories and 4 grams of fiber!

Peaches contain less than 40 calories per medium fruit, and each one packs 1 1/2 grams of fiber!

Wow, sounds perfect for fall harvest fruits! I can't wait to test it out! Report
Sounds great . . . will definitely try!! Report
I buy frozen blueberries as they are always cheaper than fresh. They are frozen when they are fresh, so they are just as good. Report
sounds great. thanks Report
Thanks for the recipe! I love blueberries, I have some on my oatmeal EVERY morning along with cinnamon..have been doing so for several years and not tired of it yet. The cinnamon is to help with diabetes and I swear I think it helps. Now as far as blueberries keeping the mind sharp....uh..in my case not sure it it working that well..lol Report
Boy, that sounds good and easy. I think it would be a great way to use up extra fruit. Report
I like to add a half cup (or so) of frozen (thawed) blueberries to my oatmeal. It's delicious, and the blueberries are sweet enough that I don't have to add any sugar or sweetener to the oatmeal. Report
Blueberries are Absolutely one of my Fav's besides Peaches, Strawberries and Kiwi fruit!! Blend them all together and your mouth is having a Party!! Report
Wow! I tried this last night with blueberries, blackberries and raspberries mixed together. Boy, was it yummy!! I did the crust a bit differently. One half of a sheet of crumpled phyllo was on the bottom and sides of my itty-bitty cassarole dish and the rest was flaked onto the top. I rated this recipe with 5 stars in the recipe section. I think I'll have it again today. Report

what is fillo dough and where do you find it? Report
I love this idea... I've got filo dough in my freezer right now and I'm wondering what to do with it... and this is great! I think I'll make it for Saturday breakfast. Mmmmm I can't wait! Report
I enjoy freezing the fresh fruit for smoothies later in the year. They are great for mid winter tastes of the season.

But, I must admit, this does sound yummy! Report

Two of my favorite fruits - yummy! Report
sounds really great will try soon yummy Report
Sounds good I will have to try! Report
Sounds good but, I'm going to try this without the peaches. Maybe I'll use blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries all jumbled together. I don't like peaches much. Report
Blueberries and peaches are two of my favorite fruits from summer's bounty. I'm sure I'd love this cobbler. Alas, although I have the fruit here, I don't have the filo dough. I'll have to get some and try this soon, before the price of blueberries spikes again. Report
Blueberries are a fave of mine as well! I like 30 g of Fiber One cereal with 50 g of blueberries, 100 g of plain fat free yogurt and 8 g of sugar. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM!! Report
I love blueberries. I eat a cup with .5 splenda on them with them frozen. It is like eating ice cream. Report
Blueberries are great. Sam's Club had two pound boxes for about $5 last week, so I bought two and made blueberry sorbet. Report
