Flashback Friday: Blueberry Strawberry Crumble

Blueberry Strawberry Crumble

It’s Fridayyyyy!! And it’s a long weekend! I think I live for long weekends. Annnnd college football starts! Yes, I am clearly excited about all of this.

Also, I just realized I have only posted fruity recipes this week. Sorry, I will try to refrain from all the fruitiness next week.

Typically when I do my Flashback Friday posts, I basically make the exact same recipe as the original post. This one is going to be a little different. The original post was more of a cobbler and I used boxed cake mix. I wanted to make this one a little healthier so this new version is a blueberry strawberry crumble.

Can we also talk about how ridiculously confusing it is trying to figure out the difference between a cobbler, crumble, crisp, buckle, etc.. Seriously they are all almost the exact same thing. I’m pretty sure when oats are involved, it is a crumble. If I am wrong about this then please forgive me.

Ok, so what do I love about this new crumble version? Pretty much everything. I didn’t use much sugar except for a few tablespoons in the topping. Instead of using just butter, I also used coconut oil. This dessert is not super sweet, but I think that is what I like about it. It will satisfy your sweet tooth without weighing you down.
