Paleo Blueberry Crisp

Paleo Blueberry Crisp Recipe via Worthy Pause

Paleo or not, this is my f*%&ing favorite summertime dessert and it takes virtually no time to assemble for consumption.

While I'm usually a fan of having leftovers, this dessert is best served right out of the oven so the recipe is written as a single serving. Double or triple or quadruple the batch as needed!

Okay, I'm not going to waste any more time gabbing about it. Let's bake.

Filling Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint of blueberries
  • ~1 tsp lemon juice (about 1/4 of a whole lemon)

Crumble Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/8 cup ghee or coconut oil, melted (softened is fine too)
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • some crushed pecans or sliced almonds
  • optional:  lemon zest from 1/4 of a whole lemon
 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Toss the blueberries in a small baking dish (like this) and squeeze or pour the lemon juice over the top.
  3. Mix all the crumble ingredients in another bowl.
  4. Spoon the crumble mixture over the berries.
  5. Bake for 20-30 min, or until the topping is golden brown. Let cool slightly before eating.

Tips

  • A shallower baking dish works better than a deep one.
  • You can probably substitute any berry into this recipe.
