Nothing beats the smell of a blueberry crumble baking in the oven on a Saturday morning. The house feels warm and emits a sweet cinnamon aroma, serving as the best wakeup call and motivator to kick off the day. This Easy Blueberry Crumble recipe gives off all the autumn vibes and is the most delicious way to transition from summer to fall. It makes me want to cuddle up on the couch with a cup of tea and a slice or two while watching Pose on Netflix.

This berry-forward skillet, which is perfectly suited for breakfast, brunch or a get-together with family or friends, is a perfect balance of both sweet and savory thanks to the combination of maple syrup, cinnamon and mixed nuts. It’s also a lovely after-dinner dessert as the coconut ice cream can be used as a topping to further amplify the flavors.

But this recipe goes beyond just taste factor. It offers a wide variety of health benefits as the healthy fats from the nuts and the complex carbohydrates from the blueberries help to slow down the release of blood sugar in the body. ** Another perk? This skillet also contains collagen powder – Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, to be exact – which helps to support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints. It is also flavorless, odorless and easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids, making it a super versatile addition to any recipe you have on hand.

This Easy Blueberry Crumble is very simple to make and the fun part about it is you can experiment with different berries and nuts. With a star pairing that includes a crispy crumble and gooey filling, you won’t want to miss out.

An Easy Blueberry Crumble Recipe That Contains Collagen

Easy Blueberry Crumble 

Yields 4-5 servings of Blueberry Crumble

Blueberry Filling Ingredients:

Crumble Ingredients:

  • ½ C almond flour
  • ½ C rolled oats
  • ¼ C walnuts
  • ¼ C pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ C sunflower seeds
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • 1 T melted coconut oil
  • Pinch of sea salt 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Take a cast iron skillet and coat with a small amount coconut oil to prevent sticking.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the filling ingredients and mix until well. You may find that the coconut oil gets hard, but this will melt in the oven.
  3. Add mixed filling into the cast iron skillet and begin to prepare your crumble.
  4. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients to make the crumble and pulse until everything is chopped into smaller pieces.
  5. Top the skillet with the crumble and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
  6. After the 30 minutes is done, remove skillet from oven and let cool. The berries should be cooked, and the crumble should be nice and crispy.
  7. Lastly, add vanilla coconut ice cream and some mint leaves for the garnish. Enjoy!
