* 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
* 3 tablespoons of canola oil
* 1 cup of whole wheat flour
* 1 ½ tablespoons of baking powder
* ½ tablespoon of salt
* 1 cup of reduced-fat milk (2% or skim work just fine)
* ½ cup of sugar
* 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
* 3 ripe, firm peaches, pitted and sliced (you can also use 3 ½ cups of frozen peaches)
* 2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine butter and oil and place into a skillet until melted. Keep the burner low-medium to prevent burning the butter. Don’t rush this process.
3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a big bowel. Mix these ingredients and then add the vanilla, milk and sugar. Stir all of this together.
4. Add the melted butter and oil to the mix and stir.
5. Pour the mixture into a baker’s dish or cast iron skillet (or any oven-safe dish you have). Add the peaches and blueberries.
6. Put the dish in the oven. Cook cobbler for about 45 minutes to an hour. Allow the cobbler to cool after removing it from the oven.
Tip: You want the batter to be done, but for fruit to be slightly mushy. Look for a golden brown color for the batter and bubbling fruit to know when the cobbler’s good to go.
