Recipe: Baked Blueberry Crisp

Gluten-free, dairy-free breakfast crumble

A delicious way to start the day — or end it! And I imagine it would be a fantastic heathy dessert as well.

This is a quick and easy post-workout recipe – full of healthy fats and a variety of carbs to help refuel your glycogen stores. And I plan to play with it, to try adding in even more protein. I have used plant-based protein powders in the past with baking. Maybe try that instead of almond flour, or add a plain collagen protein mixed in with the thawed berries.

Additional versatility: You could swap out the frozen fruit, or the nut type. Add ginger or other spices as well! Mango, ginger? Strawberry mint? The possibilities seem endless!

On a side note, I did mix in 1 scoop of plain Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides into my serving today, and stirred it into the mix. Fantastic! No change in the taste or texture, but a beautiful extra 10g joint-healing protein in my breakfast. I still need to try mixing it in at the beginning, and seeing how it cooks. But I imagine wonderfully!
