Coconut Blueberry Crisp Recipe

This Coconut Blueberry Crisp is the perfect recipe to welcome fall. Simple, delicious and a healthy dessert to kick off the season of celebrations.

Disclosure: I received free samples of SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by SPLENDA® Sweeteners and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

I’m slowly getting my mind ready to transition into fall. I’m burning up the last of the summer-scented candles and making room for cable-knit sweaters in my closet.

In my family, it seems like there is a birthday or celebration every week starting in October and continuing through December. Between all the birthdays and holiday events, our weekends become non-stop cake and dessert celebrations.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good birthday cake and am never one to decline the dessert menu at a dinner party. However, all the sweets and treats can get overwhelming and throw a wrench into anyone’s healthy lifestyle.

Coconut Blueberry Crisp

That’s why I was excited to partner with SPLENDA and create this Coconut Blueberry Crisp for this month’s Recipe Redux contest. Their new SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend is made from only 2 non-GMO ingredients: stevia & cane sugar. To them, natural means using non-GMO ingredients that have minimal processing to ensure quality, consistency, safety and great taste, without added artificial flavors, colors, or ingredients.

  • No articial ingredients or added flavors, which means you know what you are getting!
  • It’s great tasting, with 50% fewer calories than sugar. Making it perfect for using anywhere you would normally use sugar.
  • It leaves no bitter aftertaste, which means you can use it in desserts, beverages, appetizers, and savory dishes. So versatile!
  • Just 1/2 tsp gives you the same amount of sweetness as 1 tsp of traditional sugar

This Coconut Blueberry Crisp is the perfect transition-into-fall-dish! Using late season blueberries still gives it a summer-time feel. But as the seasons change, you could change the blueberries to pears, apples or peaches!

Since it uses way less sugar than a traditional crisp, it makes a great healthier dessert idea for celebrations or even as an indulgent weekend breakfast idea!

 

It’s so simple to make and just 30 minutes stands between you and a delicious serving of warm coconut blueberry crisp (topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you are so inclined. which i always am)
