Blueberry filling

  • 2 cup blueberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest


  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 3 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare a greased 9inch loaf pan
  • In a medium bowl, mix the blueberries, sugar, corn starch, lemon juice, and lemon zest until combined. Pour this mixture in the prepared loaf pan
  • In a separate bowl whisk together oats, whole wheat flour, sugar, cinnamon, and the melted butter until combined. Layer this crumble topping evenly on the berries
  • Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes until the berries are soft and the crisp topping is golden brown
  • Enjoy on its own or top with some greek yogurt and honey-like I did. You could also go for vanilla bean ice cream if you have that available!
