Reviews for Healthy Blackberry Cobbler
"Tastes like grandma made it"
"The first time I made it, the dessert was bitter. Obviously, it was because the BERRIES were bitter! I made it again after tasting several berries in a batch and it turned out perfect! I've frozen some blackberries so I can make this in late fall...YUM."
"One of my first lower fat baking recipes and loved it."
"I make this now on a regular basis for my husband and have also shared it with friends. It goes together quickly and I also tried it with peaches, which also turned out good."
"I made a batch and took half to an elderly couple I have been cooking for each week. When I took my half out of the oven, I was so disappointed. It was awful! Bitter and unfit to eat. After one taste, no one in the house would touch it. I ended up throwing it all away. I was so embarrassed that I had shared something so horrible with others."
"Leslie, this is a great, quick and easy recipe. I made it in record time just as the 15 minute prep time stated which for me is unusual. My entire family loved it and the 'lower fat' category is our little secret. I substituted blueberries and the recommended peaches. What a hit! This one is a keeper. Thanks"
"jaslotnick, how about squeezing the juice out of a whole orange.."
"What should I use as a substitute for orange juice? My family doesn't drink juice because of the high calorie count."
"I have made this cobbler and it has been a hit everytime. LM, Olathe, Ks."
