The first thing I do when blueberries really come into season is eat them by the handful and then I make my Blueberry Crisp…loaded with goodness!

This recipe is wheat-free and would be dairy-free if you just wanted to change the butter to coconut oil in the recipe. But, most importantly it’s just yummy and comforting on a hot summer day…with some real whipped cream, of course!
