Blueberry Crumble Is Delicious And Very Healthy

This blueberry crumble recipe is so yummy and easy to make. It is very healthy too without all that sugar that a crumble usually has. Also, if you use gluten-free oats then it is gluten-free too.

Blueberry Crumble Ingredients Are Healthy

Did you know that blueberries have more antioxidants than any other popular fruit and help prevent cancer, diabetes, age-related memory loss and are anti-inflammatory?  They are also rich in potassium, fiber, and vitamins A & C.

“Inflammation is a key driver of all chronic diseases, so blueberries have a host of benefits,” says Ann Kulze, MD, of Charleston, S.C.

The common apple has uncommonly huge health benefits, and how to best enjoy them. Your mom didn’t use the term superfood but she knew about apples. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” was the first nutritional advice I and many children heard from their moms.  For this reason, we call them “the first superfood.”

Stevia leaves

As I don’t use sugar for my baking I often use stevia which is the healthy option.  The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you.  The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter.  The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based.  Liquid forms will be less processed.  Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.

I like to use Almond Oil or coconut oil in my baking. They are both healthy oils that have a high heat point and this is good for making a blueberry crumble.

Brown Rice Flour has become a staple in my baking adding fiber and nutrition.   It assists in weight loss, helps reduce cholesterol and balances energy.  It is low cost and adds a somewhat dry gritty crumbly texture.

Oats are a low-calorie food that provides high levels of fiber and low levels of fat.  They help tp stabilizes blood sugar and reduces the risk of diabetes while removing bad cholesterol.

If you want gluten-free oats, here is a very good one Old GF Fashioned Oats–  Harvest Gluten Free Organic Rolled Old Fashioned Oats which is good for cooked oatmeal for porridge. For making a crumble, it is better to have one like this: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats

“It is now generally accepted that non-contaminated gluten-free oats are safe for a celiac disease diet, with the exception of a small minority of celiacs who may have an additional intolerance to Avenin.”  Says Celiac.com on Oats

For this recipe and all my recipes, I use Himalayan salt which is actually good for you!

So now that you know about the healthy ingredients in the blueberry crumble, it is time to make it.
