Plant-Based Blueberry Crumble

I have a friend who is absolutely OBSESSED with blueberries. Every time I ask for flavor suggestions or recipe ideas, he always suggests something with blueberries.

While he is probably slightly crazy, I'm happy to oblige. Blueberries are incredible. They are sweet and juicy. And one of the healthiest foods you can eat.

I know there's a lot of talk about superfoods. People debate which foods provide an insane amount of nutrition. There isn't always consensus, but I firmly believe that the best superfoods are the ones that are available and affordable. Like blueberries!

Let's talk about fruit for a second.

When a fruit is in season, you can buy it inexpensively at the store. But when it's not in season, it's being shipped in from another country and can get expensive.

Personally, I never buy fresh fruit. I buy all my fruit frozen because more often than not it's cheaper than buying fresh.

It also lasts longer. AND it's picked at the peak of ripeness. All the nutrients stay put when the fruit is frozen so you know you're getting the optimal nutrition. Frozen fruit is seriously the way to go!

All that to say, I used frozen blueberries for this crumble and I recommend that you do too. You'll get a delicious sweet juicy sauce that you can only get with frozen berries.

As for the other ingredients, the list is pretty short. You likely already have them.

Ingredients

  • Frozen Blueberries: Frozen is hands down the way to go! If you have fresh, the recipe will turn out mostly the same.
  • Quick Oats: I found that quick oats gave me the texture that I wanted for the crumble topping. They are smaller than rolled oats and mixed together better.
  • Maple Syrup: The maple flavor is so good in this crumble. It complements the blueberries so well! If you want to keep this crumble completely sugar free, you could use date syrup instead.
  • Almond Flour: Adding a bit of almond flour helps the crumble bind together.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt enhances the sweetness!

How to make Plant-Based Blueberry Crumble

I made a single serving of this for myself, but if you're cooking for multiple people, feel free to increase the ingredient quantities you use.

Start by adding your blueberries to a cake pan. I used a 4-inch cake pan. But again, use a larger pan if you're cooking for more people.

In a separate bowl, mix the oats, maple syrup, almond flour, and salt. It should JUST stick together. Don't worry if it's pretty loose, it will come together as it bakes. Sprinkle the mixture over the blueberries.

Bake for 15 minutes, until the berries are warmed through and the oat mixture is crispy. Enjoy!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
