Healthy Blueberry Crisp

Fresh, plump summer blueberries shine in my Healthy Blueberry Crisp with chia seeds!

Healthy Blueberry Crisp

Hi friends!

I spent a few days in Charlotte last month and got to catch up with my college roommate Lori.  She excels at figuring out how to make super healthy food that still tastes really good.  Remember the Black Bean Brownie recipe with homemade fudge icing she gave me?

She made me a healthy blueberry crisp that was totally drool worthy.  And then she told me what was in it.. chia seeds!

The chia seeds act as a perfect thickener, while adding nutrients.

When the crisp is baked, you hardly notice them.

The topping is whole wheat flour, oats, coconut sugar and either real butter or coconut oil

Unfortunately, she doesn’t cook with measurements so I had to come home and figure out the exact details for you guys.

But I think I nailed it!

This crisp is super easy to make, totally delish and a new family favorite!

    I love all crisps!!! Favorite dessert. Do you have to grind up chia seeds to get the benefits like flax seeds or is that different?

      For this recipe no grinding necessary! They get kind of gelatin-y when you soak/ bake them.

  18. Blueberries are so good right now! That looks amazing yum! Thanks for linking up

    Julie, this recipe looks wonderful and I would love to try it! I am wondering where to find coconut sugar? Is it available in the grocery aisle or a specialty store? Thanks for sharing a great and healthy recipe!

      I just found it in Publix. I’ve also seen it in Whole Foods. It’s becoming much more popular. Grocery with other sugars.

    I believe Lori deserves two thumbs up !!
    I do remember the black bean brownie.
    I believe this blue berry crisp is a winner too.
