blueberries, oats, dates, peanut butter, vegan butter, oh my. what doesn’t The Ultimate Vegan Blueberry Crumble have? the answer is nothing, because it truly has everything you could ever want. oh, did i mention there’s no added sugar?! that’s right, this gem is sweetened with dates.
adore a good crumble, especially blueberry ones because they’re my second favorite fruit next to papaya.
honestly, crumbles are one of the most versatile desserts when it comes to the varieties of fruits you can use. there are no rules.
from bananas to berries, peaches and apples, nothing is off limits.
in terms of the state of the fruit though, i absolutely prefer frozen fruit for crumbles and cobblers.
frozen fruit is usually perfectly ripe and makes for a better texture in my opinion.
when it comes to frozen blueberries, i always have a few bags on hand in the freezer for smoothies. they’re packed with antioxidants and are so delicious.
i actually went back and forth on whether or not to make this mixed berry but blueberries solo just stood out to me!
my crumble is definitely on the healthier side with real and minimal ingredients + no added sugar. heck, it’s healthy enough for breakfast.
the crumble topping really stands out and i love the combination of flavors that i used. you will need a nut or seed butter of sorts.
i went with peanut butter because peanut butter and blueberries are one of my all time favorite combos in the world. you can totally use something else though.
since you just need 1/4 cup, i don’t think the peanut butter is overpowering at all, but feel free to use anything!
in fact, let’s go over the entire ingredient list, which you’ll find is quite short!
here’s what you’re going to need:
- frozen blueberries
- gluten-free all purpose flour
- vanilla extract
- medjool dates
- old fashioned oats
- peanut butter
- vegan butter
- dairy free milk
the topping is really easy to put together by the way because it’s made in a food processor.
you’ll see that the crumble topping will almost resemble the texture of a no bake bar or something! the dates and peanut butter are what pulls everything together.
