Just-Sweet-Enough Blueberry Crumble

Make your Memorial Day super sweet with a delectable dessert recipe that is oh-so-satisfying.

Just-Sweet-Enough Blueberry Crumble
2 tbsp honey
1 3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch, or flour, if preferred
4 cups blueberries
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3-4 tbsp butter, cold and cut into small cubes
1 small container heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract, optional

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the honey, 1 cup coconut sugar, cornstarch (or flour), blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, and ground ginger to make the fruit filling. Stir together until thoroughly incorporated, then set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl make the crumble topping. Stir together the whole wheat flour and rolled oats. Add the cubed butter, and use a fork or your hands to gently work the butter into the flour and oat mixture, until everything becomes the texture of wet sand (like when making a pie crust). Then, stir in 1/2 cup of coconut sugar and set aside.

Grease a 9-inch pie plate (or 8-inch square baking dish).

Dump the fruit filling into the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle crumble topping evenly over the fruit.

Bake at 350°F for about 40 to 45 minutes, until topping is lightly-browned and filling is bubbly.

While the crumble cools, beat the heavy whipping cream at medium-high speed with an electric hand mixer (or in a stand mixer) until soft peaks begin to form. Add 1/4 cup coconut sugar and vanilla (if using), and whip again until fluffy. Serve on top of your crumble.
