Let’s discuss the 7 basic ingredients needed to make this yummy blueberry dessert.
Healthy Blueberry Crumble Ingredients:
Fresh Blueberries: The star of the show here, fresh blueberries are what make this dreamy healthier crumble recipe an absolute delight.
You can use frozen blueberries as well but I find fresh sweet blueberries generate a nicer texture. Use any fresh berries you like here, or use mixed berries.
Pure Maple Syrup: To sweeten both the blueberry filling mixture and the crumble topping, we use pure maple syrup. For a sweeter treat, you can add 1 to 3 additional tablespoons of brown sugar or coconut sugar to the cobbler mixture or filling.
Lemon Juice: A little lemon juice adds a pop of flavor to the blueberry filling so that the sweetness is offset with a slight tang. This also makes the crumble taste nice and refreshing!
Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour: Used in place of regular all-purpose flour for the crumb topping mixture, we use gluten-free all-purpose flour. I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, however, Pamela’s, King Arthur, or any 1:1 gluten-free flour blend will work too.
While oat flour can be used, I find the texture turns out the best with a gluten-free blend.
If you love oats in your topping, add 1/2 cup of gluten free oats.
Coconut Oil or Butter: Melted coconut oil or melted butter gets mixed with the crumb topping to form that luscious flavor and texture. I prefer butter for the best results myself, but coconut oil is an excellent dairy-free option that I’ve used in many of my fruit crumble recipes.
If you’re vegan and like cooking with vegan butter, feel free to use it here.
Vanilla Extract: To bring a little warmth to the topping, we add some vanilla extract. Almond extract is also delicious here if you enjoy it and have it on hand. If you don’t have it on hand, skip it.
Salt & Cinnamon: Salt brings out all of the flavors to give the crumble a delightful richness, and a pinch of salt and ground cinnamon makes for the best blueberry crumble.
Double the recipe if you’re serving more than 3 individuals because I guarantee everyone will want seconds. 🙂
If you love the blueberry lemon combination, add 2 teaspoons of lemon zest to the crumble mixture.
Now that we’re familiar with the healthy ingredients list for gluten-free blueberry crisp, let’s make some this gluten-free blueberry crumble recipe!
How to Make Gluten-Free Blueberry Crumble:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the ingredients for the blueberry filling (it’s okay if it appears watery) until the flour has dissolved.
Transfer the blueberry filling mixture to an 8-inch baking pan.
Mix the ingredients for the crumble topping together in a mixing bowl until a thick sticky dough forms. The dry ingredients and wet ingredients can go in at the same time. So low-fuss!
Distribute the crisp topping mixture over the blueberry filling in the baking dish.
Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the topping is golden-brown and the blueberry mixture is bubbly and the topping is slightly golden brown.
Serve blueberry cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Store any leftover blueberry cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. You can also store it at room temperature wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 2 days.
Can I Make This Grain-Free?:
Yes, absolutely. If you follow a grain-free diet, the gluten-free all-purpose flour can be replaced with either almond flour or cassava flour in a 1:1 swap.
Use arrowroot starch or tapioca starch in the blueberry filling mixture instead of gluten-free flour in a 1:1 replacement.
One of my favorite parts about making this recipe is how quickly it all comes together. It can be whipped up at a moment’s notice and tastes so amazing fresh out of the oven.
And that’s it! The easiest, dreamiest blueberry cobbler recipe that the whole family will surely love.
