Cobbler is king of summer desserts—fresh berries, crumbly crust and, if you’re lucky, a dollop of ice cream on top. While it’s a great way to put the season’s sweetest harvests to good use, this after-dinner treat is usually just that: a treat. Spoonfuls of sugar and boatloads of butter make cobblers an indulgence with just a hint of healthy from fruit. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With a few creative ingredient swaps, and a twist on the time of day it’s served, you can cave to cobbler – and consider it nutritious – first thing in the morning! Try this peachy pancake recipe and see for yourself.
