(Fruit filling):
  • 2 c fresh peaches, sliced

  • 1 c fresh plums, sliced
  • 1 c fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 c splenda, stevia, or sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 pinch ground clove

(Cobbler topping):

  • 1/2 c rolled oats

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. For the fruit filling: In a large bowl thoroughly toss the fruit, sugar (or other sugar substitute), starch, and spices together until ingredients are combined.  Place the fruit mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch casserole dish and randomly place the butter cubes on top.
3. For the cobbler topping: In a large bowl combine all of the dry ingredients (flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg).  With your finger tips, rub the butter cubes into the flour until the mixture begins to resemble wet sand.  With a wooden spoon mix in the yogurt and milk until the mixture becomes dough.
4. Using a spoon, place dollops of the dough randomly on top of the fruit mixture to resemble cobblestone
5. Place the cobbler in the oven for about an hour, or until the cobbler topping is inserted with a toothpick and comes out clean.
