This Healthy Blueberry Crisp is my new favorite summer dessert. This blueberry crisp is made in 35 minutes, naturally gluten and dairy free, has only eight ingredients and is sweetened with just a touch of maple syrup. Hope you’re ready for the best treat EVER!
I’ve always been a fan of ‘crisps’ when it comes to dessert. They’re much lighter than pie (which is also super delicious!) and crumble (which typically has more butter, sugar and flour in it). Crisps are typically made with oats as the base, but I also added some chopped pecans for crunch, healthy fats, and flavor!
However, the real star of the show here is the blueberries. They’re downright DREAMY. I used frozen Seal the Seasons New Jersey Blueberries, which are in my opinion – exceptionally sweet and juicy!
Can you use fresh berries in this healthy blueberry crisp?
Yes, you could also use fresh berries if you have an abundance of them, however, I like the frozen berries best. As the frozen berries cook, they defrost, creating a delicious blueberry sauce that you may not get with fresher berries.
This Healthy Blueberry Crisp requires minimum ingredients. Here is what you’ll need for this recipe:
30 minutes in the oven and you’ve got warm, bubbly delicious Healthy Blueberry Crisp ready to enjoy! I’m not saying you need to top it with vanilla ice cream… but I personally wouldn’t be opposed if you did.
