Blackberry Cobbler

I think I've mentioned this before, but my new co-workers are assholes.  They have developed some new, and very annoying habits, like loudly messing around in the next room and wanting all kinds of attention when I go to the employee kitchen for a cup of coffee.  One of my co-workers yells, over and over, so I can look at his current favorite office supplies, o.k. it's a toy, but he still yells, over and over and over...

It is great topped with ice cream, or a drizzle of heavy cream
if you are eating it for breakfast.
I have been taking the dogs for a walk during my lunch.  It helps get rid of some of their energy and I have a couple hours right after, of quiet uninterrupted work while they nap.  It is very productive time for me, but soon enough they wake up and demand to be let out, get drinks, need pets.  I'm using all my break time to take care of them instead of all the things I planned on doing during my union breaks, like updating my blog.  And work is busier than ever!

So, enough complaining.  I do love those dogs, as annoying as they are.

Well,I bought a big container of blackberries at Costco.  I like to have 8 (not 7 and not 9) at breakfast but I wasn't eating them fast enough to get through the giant container before they spoiled, so I made this blackberry cobbler.  It was delicious.  The almond flour cookie topping is wonderful on its own but together it is a delicious dessert or lovely breakfast.  Just eat it before the coworkers decide they need some, or yell at you to look at their new toy.

Blackberry Cobbler

20 oz. blackberries
3 Tbsp. Swerve, divided
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour

Preheat oven to 350°F
Mix blackberries,1 Tbsp. Swerve, lemon juice, and xanthan gum, pour into greased cast iron skillet or  8X8 oven proof pan.  In a medium bowl mix egg, butter, 2 Tbsp. Swerve, stevia, vanilla extract and almond flour.  It will be a stiff cookie dough consistency.  Drop by spoonfuls over blueberries and spread to cover most of the fruit.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until fruit is bubbly and crust is a golden brown.
