Easy Blueberry Crumble

It was time to give you a dessert recipe! Here is one that is lovely to serve slightly warm. Super easy to make with not too many ingredients, this recipe is sure to be a repeat! Feel free to substitute the berries for rhubarb, apples, peaches, or whatever fruit is in season ;) Blueberries are such a beneficial fruit that this dessert is quite a healthy one. Just remember to save some for your fam or guests!!

Thanks Lesley for the Blueberry Crumble recipe. I am going gluten free and always appreciate recipes that are easy to convert. The Women’s Group at my church meets this week for a pot-luck lunch and at least 3 of us are gluten-free so I’m always looking for something I can offer as an alternate to the regular baking. Thank you.
I miss exercising with you but I do find Aquafit works for me right now.
Blessings, Susan
