Blueberries and maple syrup combined in a crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is delicious!
We have several blueberry bushes in our garden and they have done really well this year. I love good blueberry years because that means that we not only enjoy blueberries during the summer, but I also get to stock my freezer with blueberries to use all year long.
One of my favorite ways to use blueberries is in crisps and cobblers. They are one of the easiest fruit desserts to make. They are simple and classic.
One of the things that makes them so easy is that they contain only a few basic ingredients. Nothing special or fancy. And yet crisps and cobblers are still so good. They are also easy to make gluten free.
This blueberry maple crisp is a pretty basic crisp recipe that I changed up by using a gluten free flour blend I had on hand and maple syrup for sweetening the berries.
I loved the flavor of maple syrup in this crisp. The flavor blended so well with the blueberries and oatmeal topping.
