Peach and Berry Cobbler for a Movie Inspired #SundaySupper

Apr 14, 2013 by

Today’s #SundaySupper is so cool! We are all doing a post inspired by a special or favourite movie. Have you been able to think of a food or beverage and immediately connect it to a movie? You know, like how Carrie has her special Cosmopolitan and Bond has his Martini “shaken, not stirred.” You get the idea. Our host today is none other than Heather from GirliChef! Check out Heather’s awesome recipes on her blog.

I chose the movie Soul Food. I loved the movie so naturally, I loved the series too. I watched every single episode. I laughed. I cried. I crushed. Yes, Boris Kodjoe is the ish! I’m over him now, but back then….just looking at him made my day. I loved the series so much that I jumped at the chance to be an extra in one of the episodes. That’s right. I was on set for about 12 hours, mostly doing nothing – but I was there. It’s too bad I have no idea what season or episode it was. Ha! Ah well.

In the movie, I loved that every Sunday the family got together and had a big meal that everyone would enjoy. It was a time to catch up, work out issues, and share joys. You see, I believe I loved it because the values portrayed in the movie were similar to mine. The focus, aside from all the drama and family bickering, was always on family and bringing them back together after tremendous turmoil. Family first. I love a good drama. If you haven’t seen Soul Food (1997), it’s definitely an oldie but goodie.

It’s too  bad that the idea of Soul Food generally means something deep fried, sugar filled or unhealthy but incredibly tasty. Today I’m sharing a recipe that is a cleaner version of a Soul Food dessert. I wanted to try it because 1. I have never made a cobbler before and 2. I’m coming off a juice fast and I need a sweet treat that won’t throw me off my goal. I love that there are fruits and that the cake is made with spelt flour. Totally my kind of dessert!

Chocolate Oatmeal Banana Bites

Jul 28, 2011 by

 

You’ll hear me say quite often, that I love different. When I came across this recipe on Marmande In The Kitchen‘s blog, I knew I had to try it. I’m always looking for neat little treats for my family that tastes great and won’t harm them in the long run. Believe it or not, these little bites have no Eggs, Butter, Flour or sugar – which are basics in making baked items. Now, I did make some changes but it tasted awesome just the same. The original recipe called for Coconut Oil so I will try to use it when I make it the next time. Oh and guess what? I made my own Almond Meal! You should try it! Really!

As always, I used what I had available. I had some Sliced Almonds, so I put it in my Magic Bullet for a few pulses until I achieved the desired result and quantity. I had dark chocolate chips in the pantry. I did try the frosting, and it was great but I felt that the bites were good enough on their own. So here’s my amended recipe:

 

Ingredients:

3 Large, very ripe bananas, mashed

1 Tsp vanilla extract

¼ Cup Olive Oil

2 Cup Rolled Oats

2/3 Cup Almond Meal

½ Tsp Cinnamon

½ Tsp Allspice

½ Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Baking Powder

2/3 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 24 hole mini muffin pan.

Mix to combine, the bananas, vanilla, and olive oil in a large bowl.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, almond meal, coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips and stir until just combined.  The dough will be fairly loose and wet.

Spoon the mixture evenly into the muffin tray and bake for about 15 minutes.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then cool completely on a cookie rack. If you can wait that long.

 

Enjoy!
