I’ve blinked and it’s already Valentine’s Day! Where has this year gone? It’s hard to believe it’s already February. I personally love V-Day because it’s just another excuse to share love with the people I love. It’s also another great excuse to dive into some serious dessert.
But I don’t love the stomach ache that comes the next day from all that champagne and chocolate, so tuck into this blueberry crisp and enjoy all the dessert vibes without all the gunk in your trunk! Not only is this recipe simple, but it also has really wholesome ingredients that are sure to tickle your tummy (in the happy I love dessert kind of way). The blueberries are baked to gooey perfection and are topped with a delicious crumble-like concoction with things like oats, almonds, and maple syrup to sweeten.
Cook this up for your significant other this Valentine’s Day and be ready to be met with happy kisses!
