My husband has great memories of cast iron cobblers on cold winter campouts. Caring more about staying warm than anything else, their creations usually consisted of dumping a can of pie filling into a Dutch oven covering it with yellow cake mix and throwing on a slab of butter. When Post invited me to create a unique dish with one of their cereals, this Colorado mountain classic instantly came to mind. However, I wanted to focus on something a little more heart healthy, but still showcasing my favorite cobbler toppers – oats and pecans. There are all different kinds of cobbler toppings, but my personal favorite is the crumb topping. Great Grains cereal was perfect for this. I love that the clusters are oaty and crunchy, and the pecans, which end up getting perfectly toasted, balance the sweetness of the peaches and blueberries. In addition to the taste, this cereal was the perfect visual accent. Without hurting your waistline, this cobbler can start your day off on a sweet note or end it in decadent warmth a la mode.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, a day focused on love and hearts, Walgreens and Post Cereal have teamed up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of American Heart Month. Cardiovascular disease happens to be the #1 killer of men and women in the U.S. Show yourself some love by learning about the signs and risks of heart disease.
Join me and my family by stalking up on your favorite heart healthy cereals at Walgreens.

Here is our family’s favorite Post Cereals: Great Grains Crunchy Pecans to eat as a granola or crumb topping. Grape Nuts baked in our grandma’s zucchini bread and Honey Bunches of Oats layered in our fruit & Greek yogurt parfaits.
Kids Review: My kids loved this cobbler. In fact they prefer this crumb topping over any other biscuit or cake like toppings that they have had on other cobblers. In fact I had a few of my kids trying to pick out the oaty clusters and pecans, just like their momma.
