This is a delicious wild blueberry grain-free crumble meaning it is gluten-free too. It is a very healthy recipe and is also refined sugar-free. What inspired this recipe was that my sister was coming for her birthday dinner and I wanted to have a very healthy dessert to serve.
Why make a ‘Wild Blueberry Grain-Free Crumble’?
What inspired me to create a grain-free dessert is that all of my meals are based on eating using proper food combining principles. I learned about this to help food digest better. There is a whole chapter on this principle in my book: Green Means Lean E-Book.
First, I went and bought a big bag of frozen wild blueberries. Then, I made the crumble the day before so the day of creating a big meal would be easy. Already had some unsweetened coconut milk yogurt in the fridge so it was easy to put some in a bowl and add a little stevia to make it extra tasty for the dessert.

Hemp hearts – are definitely a superfood filled with health benefits! The hemp heart is hulled from the hemp seed. They do come from the same plant as marijuana but they will not get you high. Hemp hearts will get you high on nutrients and health benefits. I enjoy adding them to my meals daily.
Stevia – 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.
Coconut oil – this one is great!
Walnuts – I love walnuts! My mom loved to cook with them because they add flavour and crunch to any meal. Now I know that walnuts are also highly nutritious, so much so that I consider them a powerfood..
Arrowroot Starch – this is what I use.
Wild Blueberries – Wild blueberries are a tasty superfood that for centuries has been a part of the native North American’s diet. These small wild blueberries are almost always found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. I love wild blueberries and almost always have some in my freezer.
Himalayan salt – is actually healthy for you!
