Blueberry Crisp

I recently made a Peach Cobbler and loved it so much that I thought I would make a blueberry one. BUT then I got too lazy. So I made a crisp instead. This dish is lazy as hell and delicious AF. I made it the other day when I had my parents over for dinner since it doesn’t take much effort at all. Whenever I have people coming over for dinner, I freak TF out. I start worrying about a spider web I’ve been ignoring for 3 months and the outside windows I never wash. I’m also an excessively messy cook which means I have some extra cleaning to do along the way. All this to say, this dish takes barely any effort at all and clean up is a breeze. But your guests will never know that you’re super lazy. It’s a win-win!

I’m not sure what is happening with my computer as of right now but it sounds like it’s getting ready to rocket ship off my lap. The fan inside of it is so freaking loud and I have no idea why. My computer from college use to do this since it was some super sketchy computer that I got at some store for $50. That number was made up because my memory is fleeting with each passing year. But the point is, the computer always sounded like it was going to explode, which was fair since it was so cheap AND it was 10 years ago. But now I’m a grown up in 2019 with a real computer that is brand new and it sounds like it’s gearing to explode in my face. The moral of the story – cheaper is better 99% of the time. I bought some fancy shmancy car a year ago because we had a friend at the dealership and now I just want to go back to my ole faithful honda civic. That car was the most reliable car I’ve ever had. Sure, it got stolen multiple times and some kids smoked 600 pounds of weed in it, but she still kept pressing ahead. I miss that red 1998 honda civic. She took care of me for so long.

Speaking of large purchases, ever since my husband quit his job and is now home on a regular basis (instead of being here 4 hours a week just to hopefully sleep), we kind of feel a bit claustrophobic in our home. My SIL is also living with us while she is in between apartments, so things are feeling pretty tight here. Our house is a 1950’s home so it’s ranch style with a basement, but everything is pretty snug inside. It worked great when my husband was never home, but now it’s pretty tight. Then the other day my husband mentioned how we are growing out of this house pretty fast and it would be nice if we both had an office. So what did I do? I started obsessing. I have very obsessive personality traits so as soon as he said that, I started obsessing over the thought of moving. Now I’ve been spending my free time looking at homes online. Do I have time to do this? Absolutely not. But my obsessions have taken over me and I have no control! I even asked our realtor to get us a walk through in a place. Is this the right time to move? Probably not, BUT I CAN’T STOP MYSELF!!

The thought of having a real photo studio sounds AWESOME! I know that probably sounds silly to you, but I literally work from home all day every day and take food photos in the jankiest setup. Having a professional area sounds like a dream! I’ve taken food photos for 8 years now and they’ve come a LONG way. But I could still get so much better if I had just a little more room and light. Is that reason enough to buy a new home? Probably not…………

But maybe.

I need to put these obsessions into my work. Which means I need to get to cooking today. Kbbbbbbyyyyyeeee.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. First of all, delicious looking recipe as always, Juli! Second of all, just got myself a brand new fancy expensive computer and it’s doing the same thing! I swear it’s about to explode even though it’s brand new. Technology- ugh!

  2. Juli
    This sounds delicious! Have to make it ASAP. Just wondering what the macros/nutrition info are on it. Thanks

  3. So, I’m not much of a baker and have not ever made a cobbler, but I’m obsessed with all the berries right now. Could I make this with fresh berries the same way?

  4. Going to make this very soon and let you know how it turns out. Wish I could just eat the pictures! Make sure your computer is able to vent the heat out. That fan running at high speed is one of two things….a pillow, cushion or something is blocking the vent(s) on the side of the laptop preventing heat from escaping…the other problem might be a defective fan on the motherboard. If, after making sure you’re not blocking the vents, the fans keeps running then call the manufacturer as soon as possible. They’ll put you through the paces of troubleshooting but you don’t want that problem to go on for too long or you could risk permanent damage. Just my two cents and thank you for all that you do. Getting my GF one of those Lululemon tops that you featured this week for her birthday.

    Best crisp ever! I have been making a variation of this for years, but this time I added the baking powder and I threw in an egg to the crumble bit. The egg made it more cake-like.. It was amazing! Peaches up next.
    Thanks Julie….

  6. We have so much in common it’s not even funny! I’m a very messy cook- Swedish Chef style from the Muppets. Lol. My hubs and I both work from home and have a 1950’s ranch in Seattle… Though we also have a 1 year old soon and have been having the same obsessive moving thoughts! Keep up the good work!! Been following you for years!!

    1. omg i can’t even imagine what it’s like to have a 1 year old in a 1950’s house. if your house is anything like ours, it’s a hella tight space. kids toys must make it insane!

  7. Just made this today and holy f was it delicious and way easy. Subbed in arrowroot flour and a gf flour blend, in case that helps anyone reading this.

  8. I had no idea this recipe would turn out so good! Not because of the recipe but I had my doubts as a cook! I made it for my GF’s birthday and it was a hit. I have saved it to my Dropbox so that it will be handy anytime. Thank you so much for creating this. Have a great time in Bali. My GF’s son and DAL just got back and had a blast!

  9. I have tried many desserts with almond flour and I have not liked any of them. They always look promising and then I try them and wind up throwing them out. I was skeptical to make this one because it has almond flour in it but I had to try because it looked so delicious. Well, it didn’t disappoint! This was the best guilt free dessert I have ever eaten. Have made it twice in a week and this will continue to be my go to dessert!

  10. I’ve made a LOT of your recipes. I think I can confidently say this might be my favorite! We went blueberry picking last week and have wayyyyyyy too many blueberries in this house. Since they were fresh I added in a little less than 1/4 cup of OJ to the blueberry mix. OMG I can’t stop eating this! Thank you! <3

  11. Thanks for this! Just out of curiosity, what’s your favorite non dairy vanilla ice cream. I feel like they can all be hit or miss and the flavored ones can sometimes taste better. I haven’t found a vanilla I love just yet.

  12. This is the best blueberry crisp recipe– I have used fresh and frozen blueberries. I also used 1/2 cup of almonds and pulsed them in the food processor before I added the other dry ingredients and that worked so well (I didn’t have walnuts or pecans). I also use Miyokos vegan butter instead of ghee and it’s the same result. So incredible!
