Blueberry Crisp. Mini blueberry crisps feature fresh blueberries combined with fresh lemon and orange juices. Topping prepared from old-fashioned oats, almond flour, sliced almonds, maple syrup, unsalted butter, and fine sea salt. Mini crisps baked until golden brown.
Blueberries are way out of season. I love fruit crisps and decided I would seek out some nice berries, pay the pretty penny for a few pints of them, and put this recipe together. Any leftover berries into some blueberry Belgian waffles.
Fresh blueberries pair really well with lemon and orange, so I added a little of both to brighten the flavor and add a little pop. No additional sweeteners. A bit of cornstarch acts as a thickener.
The berry mix is spread evenly among four to six individual baking dishes or ramekins, or into an oven safe 8-inch square or round baking pan or dish.
Old-fashioned oats, almond flour, sliced almonds, and fine sea salt are tossed with maple syrup and melted butter. The almond oats mix is spooned over the berries.
The crisps are baked until the blueberries burst and the topping is golden and crispy.
These cool little Staub baking dishes are the perfect size for this dessert. Ideal individual portions.
A nice vanilla bean whipped cream pairs beautifully with the crisps.
