OMG, you will love this recipe. I had a friend give me some blueberries and I was so in the mood for a cobbler or a pie. Well a cobbler is faster and easier then a pie-so WA LA!
It's so good my husband asked me to make another right away before the smaller first one I made was even gone. He's not a huge blueberry fan....but he loved this. Soooo good!

4 cups fresh blueberries
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Splenda
1 tsp Thick n Thin thickener

1 1/2 cup almond flour
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup Splenda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 tablespoons cold butter cut up in small pieces
2 - 3 tsp heavy cream

Combine all the filling ingrediants and spread in a 2qt baking dish sprayed with Pam. In a medium bowl combine the first 6 ingrediants for the topping and then cut in the butter until crumbles form. Add the cream until nicely moistened. Drop the topping over the filling in tsp and I kind of smoosh it down. Bake it for 30-35 min 375 degrees. Serves 6-8. Yummy warm and with fresh whipped cream.

I played around with a recipe and came up with this yummmy-all in one bbq sauce. It's sweet, tangy and spicy. Tons of flavor. You can put it on chicken, pork or beef. So good.

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup lc ketchup
3 tablespoons Splenda (or other sweetener equivalent)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp red pepper
1/8 tsp onion powder

Mix everything together in a non reactive pan. Cook on low heat at a simmer for about 15 minutes. It will cook down and thicken up. It's enough to cover 3 skinless chicken breasts. Remember it has a lot of punch!
