How to Make Easy Healthy Blueberry Crisp for Two:
Are you craving something sweet and fruity? We've got a special treat for you! This healthy blueberry crisp for two is a delicious, light dessert to enjoy after dinner with someone special. Grab two small ramekins and fill them up with fresh or frozen blueberries.
First, let's start with our blueberry base layer! Blueberries become perfectly jammy and sweet when baked. Add a splash of pure maple syrup to enhance the natural sweetness of the blueberries. To thicken up all of those wonderful blueberry juices that escape while baking, add some chia seeds or cornstarch.
Next, let's top off the blueberries with a sweet and salty oatmeal crisp topping before we bake! In a small bowl, combine the crumble topping ingredients. We're using rolled oats, oat flour, brown sugar, melted coconut oil or butter, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Fill both of the baking ramekins with the oatmeal crumble topping.
Hold up! Before you pop these cute little dishes into the oven, place the ramekins onto a parchment lined baking sheet. A baking sheet makes it easier to grab the hot blueberry crisp out of the oven and prevents any blueberry dripping on the bottom of your oven.
Now it's time to bake and enjoy! Bake these easy healthy blueberry crisps at 350F for about 30 minutes and let cool for a few minutes before serving. I like to top my blueberry crisp with a scoop of vanilla gelato or some fresh whipped cream for dessert.

- Blueberries, fresh or frozen: Any blueberries will work in this recipe! I tend to use fresh blueberries that have been sitting in my fridge for too long.
- Pure Maple Syrup: Add some extra sweetness with a little pure maple syrup. You can also leave this out if you prefer only the sweetness of the blueberries.
- Chia Seeds or Cornstarch: Chia seeds add plant-based protein to this recipe and helps to thicken the blueberry juices. If you're not using chia seeds, add cornstarch instead.
- Lemon Zest, optional: Fragrant lemon zest helps brighten up this dish and enhances the flavor of the blueberries.
- Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats: (gluten-free if necessary) Make sure you use "rolled oats" and not quick cook or any other type. This recipe calls for old-fashioned rolled oats for the best texture.
- Oat Flour: (gluten-free if necessary) We like to use oat flour (blended rolled oats) to keep this recipe healthy and nutritious. You can also substitute all-purpose flour.
- Cinnamon: This amazing spice pairs perfectly with crispy, buttery oats.
- Coconut Oil or Butter: Use coconut oil to keep this recipe vegan and lightened up. Or use melted butter if you prefer it.
- Brown Sugar: Brown sugar brings that caramel-like, rich sweetness to any baked good!
- Salt: Add a pinch of salt to balance our the sweet rolled oat crumble.
- Vanilla Extract: Add a dash of vanilla to elevate the flavor in this easy healthy blueberry crisp for two.
Can I use different oats?
I don't recommend using quick oats or any other type of oats. Old fashioned rolled oats gives the blueberry crisp topping the best texture. Also, quick cook oats may affect baking time and end result.
This recipe would taste amazing with cherries, mixed berries, strawberries or raspberries if you don't have blueberries.
