Peach Berry Cobbler with Oatmeal Streusel Topping

peach berry cobblerWith the chilly weather outside, I start to think about warm peach berry cobbler for dessert.  I don’t quite understand the connection, but it probably goes back to some long forgotten childhood memory of my mother making peach cobbler at this time of year.

Frozen fruit works fine, when fresh is out of season

Fast forward to 2018. Always pressed for time, I’ve adapted this recipe to use frozen fruit instead of fresh.  To improve the nutritional profile, I use olive oil in the streusel, instead of butter.

Brown sugar in this cobbler

This recipe uses brown sugar with the fruit filling to enrich the flavor. Nutritionally, brown and white sugar are similar, and it is more a matter of personal preference.  Brown sugar has molasses in it, which provides slightly more minerals than white sugar.  However, since you are only using it in small amounts, the amount of minerals you’ll actually get from brown sugar in this recipe is minimal. In general, a healthy diet should not include a lot of added sugar as it doesn’t add much nutritional value but does add calories.

Peach Berry Cobbler as part of a healthy diet

In my opinion, everyone should be able to fit the occasional dessert into their healthy diet.  Sugar is not evil, you just need to be careful to not eat it too often or in large quantities. Watch the portion sizes and savor something that is a little sweet when you are enjoying a meal with friends and family.
