No Sugar Added Wild Blueberry Crisp Recipe

My “sweet-tooth” is luckily not as strong as it used to be, but every now and then I a treat and I need it to be baked!

What’s a crisp? It’s like a cobbler but healthier!

I can’t really do baked goods and even some fruits are too sweet-tasting for me. This blueberry crisp recipe is just sweet enough and very satisfying. It’s even husband-approved! The sweetener in this dish are organic dates. Dates are generally about as sweet as I go in cooking. I’m not into artificial sweeteners and I really don’t like stevia either.

My friend Sarah is an amazing chef and I created this crisp recipe off of memory, modifying a gluten free blueberry crip she taught me to make a few years ago.

One of the best things about this blueberry crisps is that I always have these ingredients on hand.

No-Sugar Added Blueberry Crisp Recipe Ingredients

I’m in no way known as a good baker, so there are probably enhancements I can make to this process!

  1. Remove organic wild blueberries from the freezer and allow them to thaw: approximately 1-2 hrs.
  2. Once the wild blueberries are almost thawed, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Pour the thawed organic wild blueberries into a glass square baking dish.
  4. Finely chop the dates. Put half the dates into the glass dish with the wild organic blueberries and mix.
  5. Add a few dashes of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to the organic blueberry-date mixture.
  6. Squeeze by hand some juice from half a lemon over the blueberry mixture and mix with a spoon.
  7. Mix in about 1tsp to 1/2 TBS of coconut oil with the wild blueberries.
  8. In a small bowl, mix with your hands the almond meal and rolled oats with a few dashes of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Add in the remaining chopped dates and continue to mix.
  9. Drizzle about 1 TBS over the almond meal, oat and date mixture. Mix with your hands until its a bid crumbly.
  10. Crumble the almond meal, oat, date and coconut oil mixture evenly on top of the organic blueberry mixture.
  11. Place the crisp in the oven to bake for 35 minutes or so. Bake until desired tenderness.
  12. Try not to eat the dish all in one sitting.
