Blueberry Crumble

In the words of a very wise man, “It’s fruit-forward!”

My hubby’s not wrong. The crumble is delicious and uses less sugar, allowing the natural flavors of the blueberries and peaches to pop.

Are you curious about the recipe now?

“Holly, you have a blueberry bush?” Jen from Cherish My Heart (Crystal Shores Serial) was picking what must’ve been blueberries from the bush and popping them into her mouth.

“I do.” I stepped up beside my sister. “Wow, that’s news to me.”

“They’re delicious, too.” She handed me some.

“Yum.” I glanced around my yard. “Huh, well, yay for us. What should we make first?” Mackinac, Jenison, and I bought property together and put three tiny houses in the space. Each house had a fence to give us some privacy. The blueberry bush could’ve been here prior to cutting down several of the trees and brush.

“I was at the Farmer’s Café the other day.” Jen turned to face me.

“Again.” I winked and reached for a few more blueberries. We had not talked about it, but I had a feeling she went to the café not for the food, but to see the man who made the food.

“Whatever.” She rolled her eyes. “Chef made blueberry crumble without granulated sugar. He added some coconut sugar instead.” She grabbed my hands. “Holl, it was so good. I thought I would miss the sugary happiness. Instead, I got excited to try some recipes of my own at home.”

“What made it that good?” In my mind, it was just a blueberry crumble. Sugar or no sugar.

She closed her eyes and let out a cleansing breath. “You could actually taste the fruit. It wasn’t masked by the granulated sugar flavor.”

“Now you have me curious.” At the rate we were picking blueberries off the bush and eating them, we would need to buy some soon.

“You could make a crumble for Jake. A perfect peace offering.” She wiggled her eyebrows.

“Yeah, right. He would take the dish from my hand and promptly throw it into the trash.” I hated thinking that way.

“We need to find a way to make him talk to you. Sweets usually can be pretty persuasive.” Jen plopped down the grass and stretched her legs out.

I joined her and rested my head on her shoulder. “It’s going to take a lot more than a simple crumble.”

We’ve been making sweet treats less sugary lately but they’re still packed full of flavor. The Blueberry Crumble recipe made me excited to whip up more recipes with honey and/or coconut sugar.

Actually, that’s why I made the recipe a second time, but with blueberries and peaches. It was the perfect combo! I need to make a few more crumbles but with other combinations, like strawberries, peaches, and fresh herbs. Yum!

I used coconut sugar a lot during my legacy blog days. That blog included something for everyone. I made vegan and gluten-free recipes, along with sugary happiness recipes. It was fun to work with it again for this recipe.

The blueberry crumble can be made any time of the year, but it’s a perfect treat that could be complemented with some yogurt or ice cream during warmer months.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe to make, you’ll love the dessert.

Like any of my recipes, you can add or substitute any of the ingredients. You can use your favorite nut, add granulated sugar, or use all-purpose flour instead of gluten-free. Have fun with the recipe, and make it work with your palette.
