Blueberry Cobbler Made Light!

What says summer more than blueberries...and especially blueberry cobbler?  Yep, that's what I'm talking about! Blueberries are absolutely amazing in a dessert (one of my favorite pies.) However, we rarely make desserts anymore because when we do, well, I eat them! But we do try to make room for those dessert items that hold a great memory or are seasonal.  Certain foods (think corn-on-the-cob, fried eggplant/zuchinni) I love to eat seasonally and berry desserts are one of them. The other day I picked up a lot of blueberries at the market and I usually put them in cereal or smoothies, but  today I couldn't resist the idea of making an old fashioned cobbler.
So, in order to make our dessert and eat it too, I found this great recipe for Blueberry Cobbler, a lighter version which was entirely delicious.  Find the recipe here.

Blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, and lemon peel.

After reading some of the reviews for this recipe, I decided to add about a teaspoon of cinnamon to the blueberries and 2 teaspoons of lemon extract to the batter.  I also used my own multi-grain flour.  It made it a little better for you and added a nice nutty flavor.
Well, it turned out fantabulous!  I will definitely be making this again...even if it turns out to be next summer; it's going in my cookbook! 

Let me know if you try the recipe and like it...Blessings!!
