This Gluten Free Blueberry Crisp is topped with coconut and almond flakes and served with a delicious coconut whipped cream. Not only is this blueberry crumble gluten-free it is also dairy-free and refined sugar-free. You can also make it nut-free, by adding extra coconut flakes instead of the flaked almonds.
Blueberry crumble is the perfect dessert for winter! There is nothing like warmed fruit with a tasty crumble. Just like this gluten free apple crisp which is one of my favourites.
It is a super easy dessert to prepare and would make a lovely addition to a dinner party menu.

Should I use Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
I highly recommend using fresh blueberries over frozen blueberries, as you will not get as much liquid.
However, frozen blueberries (I buy an organic brand from Coles) still works well and taste just as amazing. You just have to be prepared for a bit more liquid.

If you or any of your guests have a nut allergy, then you can also make it nut-free by increasing the coconut to replace the flaked almonds.
