Maple Almond Blueberry Crumble

Maple Almond Blueberry Crumble
  • 1/4 cup sliced, toasted almonds
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup spelt flour
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (plus extra)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 heaping tablespoon potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2-4 tablespoons maple syrup (for preferred sweetness)


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix together molasses and maple syrup in a small bowl, drizzle over dry mixture, and combine. If too dry, add more maple syrup.
  2. In a separate small bowl, combine potato starch with lemon juice, almond extract, and maple syrup. Stir until no clumps remain. Mix into berries.
  3. Pour berry mixture into a medium oval pan or round pan. Crumble oat mixture over berries.
  4. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Cool slightly and enjoy!
