The other night it hit me, a strong craving for something sweet. While I usually keep a stash of chocolate in the cupboard, it was all gone, and I definitely wasn’t leaving the house. I checked the pantry and found all of the ingredients necessary for an awesome crumble! After a quick search on Pinterest, I found a recipe on Pinch of Yum and tweaked it a little. I used what I had on hand and it turned out great!
So if you’re craving something sweet, and have a little time to kill, try this recipe for Blueberry and Strawberry Crumble! It’s simple, pretty healthy (for dessert) and tastes even better for breakfast the next morning 😉 Plus, chances are you have all the ingredients already, and if you don’t making a sub is easy!
Simple Blueberry and Strawberry Crumble
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1 cup of pecan halves
- 1/2 cup of almond meal
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened, flaked coconut
- a pinch of salt
- a dash of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil (melted if not already in liquid form)
- 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup
- 4 cups of fresh or frozen fruit (I used 2 cups of frozen blueberries and 2 cups of frozen strawberries)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If your pecans aren’t already in pieces, chop them up. Throw them in a mixing bowl along with the oats, almond meal, coconut, salt and cinnamon.
- Add the coconut oil and maple syrup and mix well! *HINT* Try not to taste any of this mixture, because I promise you, that when you do you won’t want to stop. Yup, it’s that good.
- Grease a baking dish (again I used coconut oil) and throw your frozen or fresh fruit into the dish.
- Top your fruit with the oat mixture (if there’s any left).
- Throw it in the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until the crumble on top is a golden brown
- *OPTIONAL* I topped mine with some more coconut and threw it in for another 5 minutes. The toasted coconut on top was delicious.
- Let it cool, and then enjoy! If there’s any left over, stick it in the fridge and save it for the next day. It tastes just as good, if not better!
- *OPTIONAL* Add a scoop of icecream or a dollop of greek yogurt
So, will you give this recipe a try? What fruit combination is your favourite? We think that blueberry and peach would taste great!
