Makes 8 servings
- 3 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/3 cup Swerve Granular
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup butter (cold and cut into small squares or grated with a cheese grater)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 cup Brown Swerve
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
Place over rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine blueberries, xanthan gum, Swerve Granular, and lemon juice and mix well until the blueberries are coated. Add the blueberry mixture to a 9 x 9 pan (or smaller ramekins.)
In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, Brown Swerve, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon zest. With a pastry/biscuit cutter or fork, cut butter into dry ingredient mixture. Dough will feel like cookie dough. Spread the dough evenly over the blueberry mixture.
Bake for around 22 minutes (for the large pan) or 16-18 minutes in smaller ramekins – or until the crust is golden and the blueberries are bubbling. Serve warm or cold, and with Swerved ice cream or whipped cream.
