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 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!)
