Okay, fine. 

I will totally wear the Violet Beauregarde crown based on my recent recipes. 

I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I’m missing super cheap blueberry prices from America or the fact that I bought a 2-kilogram bag of the frozen kind that has set me off on a blueberry baking binge.

The 3 B’s.

Blueberry. Baking. Binge.

Over the last few months, I’ve shared some favorites which all includes blueberries- Blueberry breakfast cake, blueberry breakfast muffins and blueberry muffin parfaits. Cleary two things are standing out here- Blueberries and BREAKFAST.

The 4 B’s.

Now, let’s add another ‘B’ to the mix- My favorite meal of the day- Brunch.

Since being back in Australia for a little bit, I’ve been able to do something I absolutely adore, which is to throw brunches for my friends. It started as a somewhat tradition a few years ago (ironically, even published several occasions in my early blogging days!) and has continued again since I’ve been back.

Last weekend, I had a couple of friends over to be guinea pigs for some cookbook recipes for coffee. While I did have some edibles for them to sample, they were ones for the cookbook which needed their seal of approval. Because I wasn’t 100% sure that they’d be loving the recipes, I needed to have something as backup. In my final few weeks in America, I’d been experimenting with a crumble like recipe, and knew I had a winner on hand. Should the recipe tests had failed, they’d have something epic to faceplant instead. Thankfully, the cookbook recipes were given the ticks of approval and bonus? We had this healthy blueberry breakfast crumble to celebrate with!

Zing.

This healthy blueberry crumble has been specifically designed to be suitable for breakfast, and is totally a balanced and satisfying meal which tastes SO decadent! Unlike traditional crumbles, this version contains no butter, oil, margarine, white flour or sugar- Yet you’d never be able to tell! My first attempt used all coconut flour but I found that I was able to replicate an even better texture by including some almond flour. Because of the combination of ingredients used, this recipe is naturally gluten free, grain free, vegan, dairy free, paleo and refined sugar free! Phew! 

HACK! Want an extra boost of protein? You bet I tried this out with a protein boost! Not sure if you can tell, but the portion in the foreground of the photos has protein powder in the crumble mixture. They produced thicker, firmer crumbles, but still delicious. This vanilla casein protein powder, vanilla brown rice protein powder and vanilla paleo protein powder are my favorites.

Ingredients
  1. 4 cups frozen blueberries, thawed (can use fresh)
  2. 1 T lemon juice
  3. 1/2 cup almond flour
  4. 1/4 cup coconut flour
  5. 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice (I used a monk fruit stevia blend)*
  6. 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (optional)
  7. pinch cinnamon
  8. 1/4 cup cashew butter (can sub for any nut butter)
  9. 2 T pure maple syrup (can sub for agave or honey, if not a strict vegan)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a small baking dish with cooking spray/oil/butter and set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, coat the blueberries with lemon juice, mix well then transfer to the baking dish and spread out evenly.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, granulated sweetener of choice, protein powder and cinnamon and mix well. Melt your nut butter with your maple syrup and add to the dry mixture. Stir until a crumbly texture remains.
  4. Cover the blueberries with the 'crumble' mixture and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crumble is golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in pan before serving or allow to cool completely before refrigerating.
Notes
  1. * I stuck with 1 tablespoon as the cooked blueberries became even sweeter- Adjust accordingly
  2. While this tastes great hot from the oven, it tastes just as delicious cold too, or mixed with some yogurt as a snack.

Do you have an abundance of any fruit/vegetable/ingredient right now?

  1. I hate that movie/book. Gene Wilder was just too good at the role, and the book was pretty effing morbid. And then, in the new one, too weird and psychedelic. This, however, is lovely. We are currently trying to go through as much of our food as possible, so this will likely have to wait, but yum!

  2. Haha! I love that you referenced Willy Wonka. Mate, what would you give to go wander around the chocolate fountain? What would you do first? I think I would jump straight through the chocolate waterfall! And then I might sit in the chocolate lake…while eating blueberry breakfast crumbles, of course. I love that you bought a massive bag of berries…keep the berry love coming!

  3. I have an abundance of broccoli right now because it was on sale and it never is so…this is also a reason to buy a lot of cheese and dips to eat with them 🙂 the only part of Charlie and the chocolate factory I liked was the candy man song. It was kind of a creepy movie lol

  4. Your killing me with all of the blueberry goodness because right now they cost about 6 dollars for one cup! I guess I’ll just have to wait until july when they become super cheap or just use the frozen ones. Also fun fact: I could not watch willy wonka in the chocolate factory when I was little because I would get nightmares about the oomph loompahs. They still freak me out!

  5. SWEET POTATOES. But I’ve been obsessed with kabocha, Brussel sprouts, blackberries, spinach/kale and nowadays cauliflower! And if you were to put me in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I wouldn’t really be able to place myself. NOT Veruca because I HATE squirrels though–LOL!

  6. I love love love hosting dinner parties to test recipes. It’s a great reason to invite someone over! I’m all about the bloobs too. My nearby costo sells fresh organic bloobs in bulk – it’s an awesome deal.

  7. I am SO happy I found your blog!!! Can’t tell you how much I love your recipes!! All the ones that I have tried have been AMAZING!!!!?? I don’t subscribe to many blogs but I am subscribed to yours! It’s my favorite!!!!!❤️❤️❤️

  8. I love blueberries. About 6 more weeks until I can go blueberry picking again. The picking part is actually shit but the tons of cheap fresh blueberries are amazing!
    Also crumble. Our favorite Pub in London used to have a ‘crumble of the day’ and we were so obsessed with it.

    Speaking of obsession. My sister and I were so obsessed with Charly and the Chocolate Factory. We got a kick out of singing the Willy Wonka song again and again. Our favorite character was Doris 😀

    And that was a lot of trivia!

          1. How does it change the texture?
            (Sorry if I’m annoying, just genuinely curious because I love the flavours of vanilla and cinnamon in all breakfasty-things and desserts) 😀

  9. Hey there! I’m actually allergic to almonds and was wondering if you had a recommendation about an alternative to almond flour. I tried searching online but apparently the different flours do different things so I’m apprehensive about just substituting for something else. Any suggestions? So excited to try this recipe!

    1. Hi Naomi- Sorry to hear you are allergic to almonds! Are you able to tolerate oats well? They are a great cup for cup substitute in this for almond flour, although it will no longer be paleo. 🙂
