What you need to make this cobbler:
- Gluten free flour blend - I tested this recipe using Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend and King Arthur's Measure for Measure Gluten Free Blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
- Xanthan gum - If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
- Coconut oil - You can use another light oil if you prefer. Don't use olive oil.
- Blueberries - you can use fresh or frozen. Note if you use frozen blueberries, let them thaw and pour out some of the extra liquid.
