REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!

5-Ingredient Apple Cobbler

apple cobblerThis week has been one of those tight budget weeks.  All of my meals were thoroughly thought through.  I didn’t get all of the “fun” things to make yummy treats.  So, last night when my husband asked if we had anything sweet, I thought, Nooooo!  I thought, Oh man!  What can I make?!  Well, I had some banana flour that I had picked up on my vacation last week.  I also had about 1/4 of a brick of dates.  I use the term brick quite literally.  I bought these dates in Canada that were smashed together into the shape of a brick.  They’re so packed, they are actually heavy!  I bought a bunch of apples this week, as well as some butter.  I thought to myself, I can do this.  I can work with this.  And I did!  This apple cobbler is delicious!

Ingredients:

4 small apples, chopped

1 lb dates

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter, melted

3 Tbsp banana flour or your gluten free flour of choice

1 Tbsp maple syrup

Directions: Soak dates in water for about 2 hours or more.  After 2 hours, puree the dates and the water, creating a delicious caramel.  Preheat oven to 350′ and grease an 8″x8″ square pan.  Place chopped apples in the bottom of the pan.  Pour caramel puree over the chopped apples.  In a separate bowl mix melted butter, flour, and maple syrup.  Plop spoonfuls of the batter over the caramel.  Bake for 30 minutes.
