Cranberry Apple CobblerThis is the time of year for cranberries and desserts.  Let’s make our deserts healthy and delicious.    Today’s recipe is an easy to make gluten free, low glycemic cobbler which has good fat, fiber and even some protein.  For the crust I used walnuts,  coconut flour and almond flour along with metabolism boosting coconut oil.

Cranberry Apple CobblerAs a sweetener I use coconut sugar which is a low glycemic sugar and contains nutrients like zinc and magnesium.  I like it best with a mixture of coconut sugar and maple syrup.

Here is a video to show you how easy it is to make it:

Good for Urinary Tract and Digestive System

We have all heard cranberries are a remedy for urinary tract infections.  This is because they contain components that  prevent the ability of e-coli and other infectious agents to adhere to the lining of the urethra and bladder but that’s not all.  They are also good for your intestines as they help prevent attachment of bacteria to the stomach lining too.

Did you know cranberries have other great health benefits? Here are some other reasons to enjoy cranberries:

Good for Your Heart

A substantial number of recent studies have shown that whole cranberries are good for supporting our cardiovascular system and our liver.

Promotes Weight Loss

The high amount of antioxidants in cranberries help to flush out your system.  With less toxins in your system your metabolism and digestive system work better and you can lose weight quicker.

Anti-Aging Properties

The antioxidants contained in cranberries help your body  get rid of the free radicals which contribute to the aging process. They will not only help your skin to glow,  but your internal organs will also function more efficiently without problems.

 These little berries have so many benefits you might want to keep eating them all winter long!
