Berry Crumble with Orange Blossom Sauce

Berry Crumble with Orange Blossom Sauce

Living in San Diego, every day feels a bit like an early summer day. Over the weekend, I felt like embracing the sun and made a summery Berry Orange Crumble. I apologize if I am a bit ahead of the weather in your area, but the recipe will be around when you catch up! The crumble is perfect for summer, not too sweet and not too tart. I am using maple syrup instead of sugar and coconut oil instead of butter, which makes this dessert healthy and delicious at the same time. Fresh fruit crumbles are good any time of year as you can use whatever berries or fruits you have around. I love this recipe because it’s easy enough for busy, weeknight cooking and will be ready in 40 minutes. it’s perfect for a backyard barbecue, with a scoop of ice cream or orange blossom sauce!

  1. I could go for a heaping cup of these in some vanilla yogurt- a perfect dessert I don’t have to feel guilty for lol Nice work πŸ™‚

  2. This looks so good! I love crumbles and I love the substitution of maple syrup here and coconut oil. They both add a depth of flavor that would change this in a perfect way. And the orange blossom sauce sounds like heaven.
