I had been seeing Bread and Wine’s Blueberry Crisp recipe everywhere, so naturally I had to give it a try myself. Except I used blackberries instead of blueberries, but you get the idea. It’s really all about the topping/crust anyway. Am I right?? I found this recipe intriguing because it didn’t have any processed sugar (only 1/4 cup of maple syrup) and used healthier ingredients (almond meal, oats, olive oil) for the topping. Bonus points for being gluten free and super easy- which is another reason it’s the perfect summer dessert. Who wants to spend all their time in the kitchen when there are so many things to do outside in the summer? Not me anyway! This crisp was all I had hoped it would be and more! I can definitely see why everyone raved about it. I literally wanted to eat half the pan ;). Go pick yourself some berries and give this crisp a try. You won’t be disappointed! Enjoy!
