Nut Butter Blueberry Crisp

Crunchy nut butter gives this crisp a unique ‘American diner’ flavour.


450 grams frozen blueberries
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornflour

½ cup plain flour
⅓ cup quick cook oats
¼ cup caster sugar
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup crunchy nut butter (I used Fix & Fogg Everything Butter)
50 grams butter, melted

To serve
ice cream, cream or custard


Equipment: 20cm ovenproof pan or baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 170°C fan bake.

Put the blueberries and sugar in a saucepan and heat until the blueberries are thawed and juicy. Stir the lemon juice and cornflour together until smooth then stir into the berries. Simmer gently for 5 minutes until the berries and the juice are glossy and lightly thickened. Tip the fruit into the pan or dish.

Crisp: Combine the flour, oats, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the nut butter and use a fork to mix it through then add the butter and mix to make damp, lumpy crumbs.

Scatter the crumbs over the fruit, then bake for about 25 minutes until lightly golden and the fruit is bubbling. Serve with ice cream, cream or custard.
