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.
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.
