Blueberry Coconut Crisp-ripe, juicy blueberries are topped with a sweet and simple coconut oat topping. Serve with ice cream or yogurt for an extra special treat!
I know it isn’t technically summer yet, but once Memorial Day happens, I consider it summer. I never understood and still don’t understand why some schools make the kids go back to class after Memorial Day. It should be summer vacation! I always hated going back and I don’t remember doing anything productive after Memorial Day. We were just killing time until school was out for the summer. If you are still in school, I am sorry. Hang in there.
Luckily, Caleb is out of preschool for the summer. They got the memo about summer starting after Memorial Day…or maybe they didn’t want to deal with 3-year olds anymore:) It’s an exhausting job. Either way, it is summer vacation at our house and we are getting the summer party started with Blueberry Coconut Crisp.
Blueberries have always been Caleb’s favorite fruit and it looks like Maxwell is following in his brother’s footsteps. He loves blueberries too. I buy the biggest containers I can find and the boys devour them. I bought a big container of blueberries and hid them on the top shelf of the fridge so the boys couldn’t find them. These blueberries were for the crisp!
Look at those plump and juicy berries! They were the perfect base for my crisp.
I sprinkled the oat mixture over the blueberries and baked until bubbly. This crisp is almost too easy to make!
When the crisp came out of the oven, I ate a few bites right from the pan, because who can resist warm blueberry crisp? Not me! The blueberries burst into my mouth and the coconut oat topping was perfection. I saved the rest of the crisp for family dessert night and my boys were happy about that! We enjoyed our Blueberry Coconut Crisp outside with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Hellooooo summer!
If you are ready for summer to start, make Blueberry Coconut Crisp. It is the perfect dessert to kick off summer! And just so you know, this Blueberry Coconut Crisp is also great for breakfast. Whole grain oats and fruit equals a breakfast of champions! I like to top it with yogurt if I am eating it for breakfast. This crisp is great anytime of the day! Enjoy!
