It’s dessert time again, and I cannot wait to share this Blueberry Coconut Crumble with you! I like to cook and bake with what fruits and vegetables are in season. The seasonal fruits and vegetables are usually more flavorful, richer in color/vitamins, and less expensive! The berries this summer have been phenomenal. As a finishing touch to the dinner I served my friends of Roasted Whole Herb Chicken, Zucchini Pasta, and Sautéed Merlot Mushrooms, I created this beautiful baked blueberry coconut crumble.
I recently couldn’t pass up blueberries in the grocery store, so that’s what I used! I mixed blue berries with local raw honey and cinnamon and then topped with a dry crumbled mixture of almond meal, coconut flakes, more cinnamon, and chopped pecans. I popped the dish in the oven just as we were sitting down to eat our main meal – this way, it’s finished and perfectly warm when you are ready for something sweet. This blueberry coconut crumble could be my most favorite dessert of all time! If you really want to get a little crazy, you can do what we did and make this bad boy into a blueberry crumble ice cream for the perfect summer sweet treat as well!
