Wild Blueberry and Pear Crisp

Lisa Turner | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 6 people

A delicious dessert (or breakfast) filled with antioxidants from wild blueberries and seasonal fruit. Serve with plain yogurt for added calcium and protein. Increase the flaxseed in the topping if you wish, or add more walnuts for extra omega-3s.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375˚. Lay pears in an 8x8-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Top with blueberries. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and 2 tablespoons turbinado or brown sugar; sprinkle over fruit. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until syrup is partially thickened.
  2. While fruit is cooking, in a medium bowl, combine remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, flour, oats, walnuts, flaxseed, and cinnamon; add melted butter and canola oil, and mix well. Spoon over fruit. Bake for 15–20 minutes more, until topping is lightly browned and fruit is bubbly and thickened. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
