The day is much cooler today so you might be thinking about using your oven again after our record breaking sunshine in July. Many of us picked up blueberries from the market yesterday, so why not treat ourselves, our family or our friends to a heart warming, classic comfort dessert made from these delicious berries. Jodi’s tip for this one is to add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the topping.
- 4 cups of fresh blueberries
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 Tbsp of cornstarch
- 2/3 cup almond flour
- 1 cup oats or gluten-free oats
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 4 Tbsp cold, cubed, unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350º. Wash and pat the blueberries dry.
Mix blueberries, lemon juice, brown sugar and cornstarch and place mixture in a greased, ovenproof dish. In a separate bowl, rub together almond flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter until mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle dry mixture over the berries. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until topping begins to brown and it smells too good to leave in any longer.
Enjoy with some heavy cream or ice cream to top it off.
