Cherry Cobbler

Cobblers are one of the most forgiving dishes when it comes to swapping refined sugars with more nutritionally robust options like date puree. To make date puree, pit dates, soak for an hour or so in just a little hot water, and blend until smooth. If you make too much, you can store it in the freezer for later use. If you prefer a more crumbly topping, add extra oats to get the desired texture.


  • 3/4 c. old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 c. white whole wheat flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 c. date puree, divided
  • 6 c. cherries, stemmed & pitted
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 T. pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375º F. Oil a 10-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine the oats, flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well.
  3. Whisk together the oil, egg and half of date paste. Stir into the dry ingredients to combine.
  4. Coat cherries with lemon, vanilla and remaining date paste.
  5. Transfer cherry mixture to baking dish. Drop the oat mixture over the top.
  6. Bake 35-45 minutes, or until cherries are fully cooked and topping is lightly browned.

As a retail dietitian, I work with all my customers, including my littlest shoppers. These are the guests that are often the most excited to see what nutritious message—and of course snack—I’m able to share with them. Even the very youngest, who remind me of their age by holding their three or four small fingers chat with me and absorb my carefully crafted guidance. These little friends who are quick to show me that they know how to count to three are most excited when I show them the little green cartoon that can also only count to three.
