The protein powder is optional.
If you want to increase the fat content, pour a 1/4 cup of cream on top just before serving OR buzz up a small batch of whipped cream. 1/4 cup of cream will add 22 grams of fat — perfect for anyone following an “almost” keto diet.
I make these quite often, so in order to save a bit of time, I mix together several zip lock baggies of the dry ingredients. When I have the urge I just take a baggie out of my pantry and while my fruit is simmering away, I mix in the cream and water. It’s so easy, it’s crazy!
Oat Fiber and Fruit Cobblers
- 1 1/4 cup Berries or Fruit strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries. chopped apples or pears
- 1/2 tsp Cornstarch
- 1/3 cup Water
- 2 tbsp Erythritol powdered
- 2 tbsp Oat fiber
- 1 tbsp Coconut flour
- 1 tbsp Unflavored whey protein powder unsweetened, optional
- 1/2 tsp Baking powder
- 1/2 tsp Glucomannan powder
- 2 tbsp Heavy cream
- 2 tbsp Water
- Preheat oven to 350º.
- If necessary, slice or chop your choice of berries or fruit and set aside.
- Add 1/2 tsp cornstarch to a 1/3 measuring cup, add 1 tbsp water and mix until cornstarch has dissolved. Fill the rest of the 1/3 measuring cup with water and add to small pot.
- Add Erythritol to the pot and dissovle. Add berries or fruit and slowly bring to a slow simmer. Simmer stiring often until the fruit softens and the sauce turns translucent.
- While the berries simmer, measure the dry batter ingredients into a small bowl and sift together. Sir in the cream and 2 tablespoon water, mixing thoroughly. The batter will be quite thick, if it is too dry add one or two more teaspoons of cream.
- Evenly divide the fruit mixture into 2 small baking dishes. Spoon the batter over top the fruit. If possible try avoiding touching the sides of the baking dishes with the topping.
- Place into a 350º oven and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown on top.
- Garnish with a sprig of mint or basil and serve while warm.
The topping batter will be quite thick. The oat fiber sucks up a LOT of liquid, which depends on the brand you are using. If necessary, add one or two more teaspoons of cream so that the batter is spoonable — NOT pourable.
The nutrition calculation will vary depending on the type of fruit used. The calculation for this recipe was done using chopped apples as the fruit.
