How to Make Keto Blueberry Crisp
There are really only two simple steps to make this laid-back dessert. First, you’ll coat plump blueberries in coconut flour, sweetener, lemon juice and a dash of salt. Coconut flour is a delicious keto-friendly flour alternative that adds a nice nutty flavor and is highly absorbent. It keeps the crisp from getting too runny.
For sweetness, you can use any of your favorite low-carb powdered sweetener. If you like a more tart flavor in your fruit desserts, feel free to use less (or more) sweetener than the recipe calls for to please your taste buds.
The lemon juice is key to completing the classic pairing of blueberries and lemon — is there a better dessert duo?
Next, pop the blueberries in the oven until they’re thick, syrupy and the flour is absorbed. You’ll need to stir the berries after about 20 minutes of cooking to ensure the flour gets fully incorporated.
Once the berries are gooey, sweet and melted, cover your crisp with plenty of nutty granola and give it 5 more minutes in the oven to finish cooking. Soon enough, your kitchen will be full of the smell of cinnamon and everyone will be ready for dessert.
