Blueberry Crumble

Contributed by: NAPSA

Simple Blueberry Treats Are a Hit (NAPSA)-Now's the time to eat our fill of juicy fresh blueberries. Fortunately-for those of us who'd rather hit the lounge chair than slave in the kitchen-some of the most delectable ways to prepare North America's famous native berries are also the easiest.

Versatile enough to serve at a backyard barbecue or casual weekend brunch, Blueberry Crumble is easy to toss together, and it's one of those rare low-fat desserts that doesn't sacrifice taste.

Once blueberry season is over, make it with frozen blueberries!


  • 4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 packages (1.5 ounces each) instant oatmeal with maple and brown sugar


Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a 9-inch pie plate, toss blueberries with sugar. In a small bowl, combine butter and instant oatmeal until mixture forms coarse crumbs; sprinkle over blueberries.

Bake until mixture bubbles around the edge and topping is light brown, 30 to 35 minutes.
