Disclosure: This #SundaySupper post is sponsored by American Family Insurance. All opinions are my own.

Growing up, my family rarely ever ate sweets. Candy, chocolate or cake were for special occasions such as birthdays and holidays. Every day after dinner desserts during my childhood consisted of nature’s candy of fresh cut watermelon or some type of fruit salad.

As for my Scottish husband, the desserts in his home were the typical sweets you may think of such as chocolates and cakes prepared from scratch by his mum.  Twenty years together, my husband has ruined me for sweets and spoiled my children. After dinner, our kids expect (Dare I say even demand.) dessert as a reward for finishing their supper.

Yes, sadly I have succumbed to bribing my children with dessert for cleaning their plates. However, if I have to bribe reward my children with pudding (British for dessert), then at least I’ll attempt to make it a healthy dessert such as my Blueberry Quinoa Cobbler.

Truthfully, any cobbler makes the perfect summertime dessert. Fortunately in Florida, we can find blueberries in the supermarket almost year round and reasonably priced, too. So, why wait for the summer to indulge in this healthy cobbler?

The beauty of this gluten-free cobbler is that it is rich in fiber, antioxidants, healing properties and protein which are so essential for active and fit families.  Serve it a small scoop of frozen yogurt for calcium and an extra helping of protein, too.
