Blueberry Almond CrumbleWhole food ingredients, Gluten free, vegan, paleo friendly-and just down right tasty for everyone 🙂
So if you didn’t know its National Blueberry Month! Part of eating a “whole food” lifestyle is buying local seasonal produce. It doesn’t get much more local than going to a blueberry farm about 10 minutes from my home and picking our own! This past weekend we packed up the family and went blueberry picking at Bowser’s Blueberry Farm. This is their first season to be open, and they were wonderful! They had a cute wooden cut out sign that my lovely Addi climbed behind for a photo op.
This was a perfect adventure for a toddler because there were no “jagger” bushes as we would say in Western PA, and the paths were well cleared. We all had a blast picking berries.
So since I had some wonderfully delicious fresh local berries I decided a “treat” was definitely in order. This is where the Blueberry Almond Crumble you have been waiting for comes in. This is a quick simple dessert that will please your taste buds and not destroy your nutrition plan. I bring to you Blueberry Almond Crumble.
4 Cups fresh blueberries
1-3tsp. Coconut Sugar (optional depending on tartness of berries)
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 Cup Whole Almonds
1/4C. Sliced almonds
2T. 100% Pure maple syrup
1/4C. melted coconut oil
1/4tsp Sea Salt (I use Pink Himalayan)
DirectionsPreheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease square baking dish (I use a little extra coconut oil, you can use whatever you’d like). Meanwhile place almonds in a coffee grinder until you’ve created almond meal, set aside. In my grinder this takes about 20 seconds. Don’t blend too long..you’ll get almond butter 🙂
- Wash berries, dry them off, place in baking dish, squeeze lemon over berries and toss to coat evenly
- Mix almond meal, sliced almonds, cinnamon and salt together
- Mix melted coconut oil and syrup together
- Combine wet and dry ingredients to form crumble topping and then spread it over blueberries
- Bake for 30 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden brown
Let stand for a few minutes, serve and ENJOY! Let me know what you think and what you’d like to see more of!
