  • Recipe: breakfast cobbler

    Looking for a fresh family breakfast? This lightened up version of a berry cobbler is a great option. Walnuts offer heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, berries provide an abundance of nutrients and antioxidants, while oats add fiber and non-fat yogurt provides a good source of protein, says Chelsey Lindahl, MultiCare Health System dietitian. This breakfast is an especially fun weekend or holiday treat!

    Makes 1 serving


    1 6-ounce carton fat-free yogurt

    7 walnut halves, chopped

    2 or more tablespoons berries (raspberries, blackberries or blueberries)

    3 tablespoons oats, dry

    2 teaspoons brown sugar

    1 teaspoon butter or margarine


    Starting with the yogurt, layer yogurt, chopped nuts and berries in a 2-inch by 4½-inch oven-proof ramekin. 

    In a small bowl, combine oats and brown sugar. 

    Into oat mixture, cut butter with a table knife to combine. 

    Sprinkle oat mixture over berries. 

    Preheat oven to broil. 

    Place ramekin in oven and watch while top browns (takes about 1 minute), rotating ramekin if necessary for even browning. 

    When oat topping is browned, turn off oven and let cobbler sit for 5 minutes to heat through.
