Recipe Idea: Make Some Delicious Blueberry Crisp
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about the scrumptious Blueberry Crisp we ate yesterday. Wow. Good stuff. Not so good for you, though, unless you eat about half of what I ate. Before analyzing the nutrition, I thought this recipe should serve six. I just figured out the nutrition label and it’s obvious, that’s not a good idea. Try dividing it into 12 servings. But it was SUPER delicious.
The nuts and the butter make the Blueberry Crisp high fat. You could make it healthier by cutting the nuts in half (1/2 cup instead of one cup). I used about one and one-third cups of sugar, and that can be cut in half, too.
I don’t know why I was surprised. It’s about the same amount of filling you would put in a pie, and I would cut a pie into 12 pieces. I combined two recipes to make this Blueberry Crisp, taking the best parts of both: Apple Crisp and Blueberry Crumbly Top Pie. Both are delicious. The garnish of candied ginger adds a little zing when you eat it.
Next time, I’ll do better. But it is SO tasty. It won’t go to waste (but it will likely go to my waist–just kidding).
You’re gonna wanna eat this.
