A healthy summer dessert – slow cooker blueberry crumble

Author: Dr. Michelle Durkin on 10 July 2018

Does dessert and healthy belong in the same sentence? They do now!

Here's my go-to dessert that fits the bill...slow cooker blueberry crumble! It not only tastes delicious, it take just 3 minutes to prepare. No joke.

Here's a short video of me making this recipe with Carolyn from the Eat Real Food Academy while visiting Comox Valley on my summer vacation a couple of years ago.


2 lb blueberries (or any berries!)
2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 Tbsp Maple syrup (or honey)
1-1/2 cups almond flour


Cover the bottom of your slow cooker with blueberries.
Mix melted coconut oil and Maple syrup and pour over almond flour until crumbly consistency is achieved.
Spread over berries.
Cook on high for 1-1.5 hours.

Enjoy on its own, or on top of Greek yogurt (or water buffalo yogurt like we did!) or chia pudding. Top with nuts, seeds, or coconut. The sky's the limit!

Now I have a challenge for you. Serve this dessert to your next dinner guests or bring it to your next potluck and let me know the response! Do you have any go-to healthy dessert options? Leave a comment below and I'll be back next week with another edition of Doctor as Teacher Tuesday!
