The peach cobbler is a summertime staple, but unfortunately a traditional recipe calls for loads of sugar, white flour and unhealthy fats. This healthier makeover substitutes half the peaches for naturally low-in-sugar blueberries. It’s also made with olive oil in place of some of the butter and whole-wheat flour instead of the all-purpose white variety. It’s not your grandma’s cobbler, but it’s still pretty darn good.
