Pre-heat oven to 375º F. Grease a 9 x9’’ pan with canola oil. In a small bowl, mix the fruit and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.

In another small bowl, mix the dry ingredients (oats, almond meal, cinnamon, and salt) and pour over the fruit mixture.

Place the cobbler in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until the top is slightly browned.
