Blueberry + Basil Crumble

Last week, I found my perfect summer dinner party dessert. I have been searching for a recipe for a long time to serve when we have friends over that tastes amazing, is healthy, comes together easily, and looks spectacular. That’s not too much to ask from a dessert. Right?

Enter in my new (and soon to be legendary!) blueberry basil crumble. We made it one night and Matt was quick to inform me that he would say yes to anything I asked, if only he could have more of this dessert. The next night we served it to friends. Everyone loved it!

You can make the entire thing ahead of time for easy party prep. Serve the crumble in ramekins or miniature Weck containers for a fabulous dinner party treat.

Blueberry + Basil Crumble

To make the recipe you will need; 2 pints of blueberries, 1/4 cup fresh basil, 1 lemon, 1 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup chopped almonds, 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted), 2 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tbs nutmeg, 1 tbs cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

Before jumping into the recipe, I knew I wanted our containers to have a bit of style. I used a length of pom poms and a small dab of hot glue to adhere the trim to our jars. They look more festive this way and it really accentuates the specialness of the dessert.

Once the jars get cleaned out, the trimmed containers can have a great second life as cute pencil holders for the office.

Before filling the jars, we used a small spray of Pam inside each. I use Pam often in our everyday cooking. Using it for these sweets allows guests to scoop out the dessert easily and makes clean up a cinch. Since I like to cook desserts in pretty containers and odd-shaped vintage pieces often – having the sprayed layer inside makes my clean up job much easier.

To make the blueberry basil crumble; combine blueberries, chopped basil and the juice from one lemon together in a bowl, toss to combine. Fill the containers with this mixture.

Then combine all other ingredients in a bowl and mix with a fork until combined. Top each fruit mixture with the crumble. You can do all this ahead of time. Just leave the crumbles to sit in the fridge until ready to serve.

When you are ready to serve the treat – preheat the oven to 350 degrees and stick the glass containers inside. Cook for 30 minutes and serve hot – with a side of ice cream. Your guests will love you for it!
