Blueberry Crumble with Cinnamon Ice Cream

Blueberry Crumble

I have been enjoying all kinds of fresh ‘berry baked desserts’ this summer.  This Blueberry Crumble is very quick to make and a bit lighter in calories since there are no pastry crusts.  The crumble on top has some oats to up the nutrition factor. It is buttery delicious  and not too sweet.

If you prefer a pie version check out this Blueberry Crumble Pie that you make all in one dish!

If you need any more encouragement to enjoy this – just think of all the anti-oxidants you’ll be getting with your dessert!

You can make this all year long since frozen blueberries are readily available.  You can’t beat it though when fresh blueberries come into season.

It is fantastic served warm with a bit of Cinnamon Ice Cream. ( I am all about Cinnamon Ice Cream this month!)
