"Sun Kissed" Mixed-Berry Cobbler
As a low-carb lover and promoter, I'm asked almost daily, "How do you live without fruit?" Believe it or not, I'm often asked, "How do you live without vegetables?!" People are so misinformed ... I love fruit and I eat berries quite regularly. Blueberries are a particular favorite!
Here we're going to get into an EXCELLENT low-carb, sugar-free, gluten-free, grain free (ok, that's a lie ... there's an oat or two, but I'm on a roll!) mixed berry cobbler. Rest assured, this is FAR from FLAVOR-FREE. The taste sensation on this cobbler is as good as any you've ever had, but with DRAMATICALLY less carbs. Imagine a hot scoop of this stuff after a slow, lazy dinner, with a fresh scoop of sugar-free vanilla ice cream, melting and dripping all around your warm bowl. Or, imagine heating up a slice of this for breakfast, the day after.
Some coffee, a few slices of bacon and a nice slice of re-heated mixed berry cobbler before beginning my day? Yes, please!

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Grease a 9" x 13" baking pan.
With a zester, zest your orange. You can also use a vegetable peeler to peel the very outer orange layer of the orange (do not get the white "pith" part, it's bitter). You want enough of the zest, to create about 1 tsp of fresh zest. Juice the orange and split the juice into 2 cups, one with 1 tbsp of juice and the other with 1/4 cup of juice. If you have extra juice, add it to the 1 tbsp. portion. If you don't have enough, add a little water to arrive at 1/4 cup's worth of liquid, in the larger cup.
In a mixing bowl, blend together your sugar equivalent, gums and salt. Make sure they're mixed well, as this will help prevent clumps.
Add your berries to the bowl. Pour your 1 tbsp. of orange juice over the berries, along with the chopped zest and vanilla. Toss the berries so that they are evenly coated with the sugar mixture. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and spread it evenly.
In a large mixing bowl, combine your baking mix, sugar equivalent, baking powder, soda and salt. Mix together.
Cut in your butter, with a fork or a pastry cutter, until there are many small pieces of butter, about the size of peas.
Pour in your 1/4 cup of orange juice and combine until a thick batter has formed.
Spoon small even clumps of batter over the top of the berries.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until bubbly and the biscuit portion of the cobbler is a nice golden brown.
