Here is a recipe I found for Very Best Blueberry Cobbler. I made it using all organic ingredients and almond flour so its gluten free.
* 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract * 1/2 lemon, juiced * 1 cup white sugar, or to taste * 1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour * 1 tablespoon butter, melted * 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour * 4 teaspoons baking powder * 6 tablespoons white sugar * 5 tablespoons butter * 1 cup milk * 2 teaspoons sugar * 1 pinch ground cinnamon
1. Lightly grease an 8 inch square baking dish. Place the blueberries into the baking dish, and mix with vanilla and lemon juice. Sprinkle with 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of flour, then stir in the tablespoon of melted butter. Set aside. 2. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 3/4 cups of flour, baking powder, and 6 tablespoons sugar. Rub in the 5 tablespoons butter using your fingers, or cut in with a pastry blender until it is in small pieces. Make a well in the center, and quickly stir in the milk. Mix just until moistened. You should have a very thick batter, or very wet dough. You may need to add a splash more milk. Cover, and let batter rest for 10 minutes. 3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spoon the batter over the blueberries, leaving only a few small holes for the berries to peek through. Mix together the cinnamon and 2 teaspoons sugar; sprinkle over the top. 4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden brown. A knife inserted into the topping should come out clean - of course there will be blueberry syrup on the knife. Let cool until just warm before serving. This can store in the refrigerator for 2 days. serves 6
When I'm using thawed berries, I place the berries, lemon juice and sugar in a sauce pan. Place the pan over medium-low heat and reduce the liquid until thick. This avoids having to use any starches as a thickening agent.
Yummmy STUFFF! Maybe I'll pull some blue berries out of the freezer tonight.

Oh my gosh, that sounds fantastic! I just picked up some raw coconut flour, I'm going to try to use it with this recipe. YUM!
I'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
