About this Recipe

By: Linda Eads

This simple, rustic dessert is delightful.  It is a lovely dish to serve at a meals end.

And with blueberries now available year round, you can serve it no matter the season.





  • 4 C. fresh blueberries, rinsed
  • ¼ C. real maple syrup
  • ¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground allspice
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary (or 1½ t. fresh, finely chopped)

Topping Ingredients:

  • ¾ C. old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ C. almond flour
  • ¼ C. almonds, sliced
  • ¼ C. honey, preferably local
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/8 tsp. table salt

Optional to Serve:

1 C. Greek yogurt

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Place top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Place blueberries in a large bowl. Add maple syrup, cinnamon, allspice, rosemary, and salt. Toss to combine and set aside.

Step 3

Combine the topping ingredients in a separate bowl and stir until oats are thoroughly coated and all ingredients are well combined.

Set aside.

Step 4

Pour blueberry mixture into a 10” cast iron skillet and spread into an even layer.

Spread the topping evenly across the top in a uniform layer, as well.

Step 5

Place into pre-heated oven and bake for 30 minutes. If the top layer is nicely browned at this point, cover dish loosely with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the blueberry crisp is nice and bubbling.

Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes.


Step 6

Serve warm with some Greek yogurt, if desired.
