Easy To Make Blueberry Crumble (Organic + Vegan + Gluten-Free)

Hello everyone and welcome

I have been loving all the summer fruits and berries.  So today I decided to make a Blueberry Crumble because………I need to use up my blueberries before they go bad and because this is such an easy to make dessert.

Now I know the title might not seem that appealing to some, especially when you read (organic + vegan + gluten free) but I promise you will never know!

When I am cooking and baking my goal is to use really good quality and healthy ingredients as much as I possibly can……..without sacrificing taste. I love good flavorful food…..don’t we all.

I decided to make a gluten-free version because I bought the flour a while back and I only used it once to make a gluten-free deep dish pizza. You can find that

recipe here…just swap the wheat flour for all purpose gluten free.

Now let’s dive into the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups organic gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic brown sugar (DIY here)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine pink Himalayan salt
  •  4 cups fresh organic blueberries
  • 6 tablespoons cold vegan butter, cubed ( I like this soy free brand here)
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened organic applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon organic lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar (for blueberry filling)
  • 4 teaspoons organic cornstarch

Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9×13 or 8×8 inch baking dish ( I used a bit of the vegan butter.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1/2 C cane sugar and 1/2 C brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and flour. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut in the vegan butter until the butter is pea-sized or smaller.
  3. Mix in the applesauce, using a spoon or your hands bring the dough together. Transfer half of the dough to the prepared baking dish and press in to form an even layer of crust.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine blueberries, lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch. Mix well to combine, add the mixture into the baking dish spreading it out evenly. Crumble the remaining dough over the blueberry mixture to form the crumb topping.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 45- 50 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow it to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do. For similar recipe’s to this one check out some of my older post here, here and here.
