Breakfast cobbler is for cobbler people like us. I make cobblers filled with blueberries, blackberries and peaches all summer long.

But what about breakfast?

Could we get some of this fruity goodness into our lives earlier in the day?

I revamped my favorite cobbler recipe into something heartier with more fiber (to stick with littles all morning long) and this is the result: whole-wheat strawberry breakfast cobbler. Sweet, satisfying and the sunniest way to start the day.

I started with the same base as our basic cobbler but substituted or added a few extras:

  • whole-wheat flour
  • whole oats
  • an egg
  • chia seeds

Just mix it all together and pop in the oven for about 50 minutes. I make these whole-wheat cobblers the night before and serve with a drizzle of half & half. So. Good.

I make this cobbler the night before so it’s easy to serve on a busy morning. Add a drizzle of half & half for extra creamy goodness.

Is Whole-Wheat Flour Good for You?

Yes! The difference between white flour and whole-wheat is about the processing. White flour is made from heavily refined and processed wheat grains. Whole-wheat flour is made from grains that have not undergone heavy processing. The result is different taste, and nutritional value.

  • Whole-wheat flour has more fiber than white flour.
  • Whole-wheat flour doesn’t spike your blood sugar as much as white flour.
  • Since it’s not ground so finely, whole-wheat flour retains more of the natural vitamins and minerals found in wheat itself.

I took a picture of a wheat field today…

It came out pretty grainy.

What did the bread baker say to the sack of flour?

I loaf you!
