This show-stopping cobbler recipe–featuring peak-of-season nectarines and blackberries–has half the sugar and butter you’d find in a regular cobbler recipe, yet packs a much richer flavor thanks to whole oats, raw coconut, sour cream and lemon zest.


Nectarine Blackberry Cobbler with Coconut-Oat Topping

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 10 servings


  1. 1 cup oats
  2. 1/2 cup raw coconut
  3. 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour, divided
  4. 1/2 cup sugar
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  6. sea salt
  7. 1/2 stick butter, chilled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  8. 2/3 cup light sour cream
  9. 1-1/2 pounds nectarines, cut int 1-inch wedges
  10. 3/4 pound blackberries
  11. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  12. juice and zest from 1 lemon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix oats, coconut, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl. "Pinch" in butter with your fingertips until flour starts to come together into pebble-sized bits. Mix in sour cream just until a dough forms.

In a separate bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar, all the fruit, vanilla, lemon juice and zest and remaining 1/4 cup flour. Stir to mix.

Pour fruit mixture into an 8-inch square or round glass baking dish. Dollop topping dough evenly over fruit.

Bake 35-45 minutes, until topping is cooked through and golden brown.

Let cool before serving.

    Is the nutritional information available for this?

      Great question! I actually don’t include nutritional info for a very specific reason … I really want people to focus on food as food, and show what a healthy plate looks like rather than focusing on numbers (this was my conundrum for years when I was writing for Cooking Light).

      That said, all of our recipes adhere to the NOURISH principles of sound nutrition (focusing on fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats with a bit of well-sourced protein), and all are under 500 calories.
