Wild Blackberry Crumble

Blackberry season is here! We have a boatload of berries in our back yard right now and I made the first recipe of the season last week. This blackberry crumble isn’t low in calories, but when is the last time you got protein, fiber, and iron out of your dessert? You can thank the flax seed for that. Use Xylitol instead of sugar to further reduce calories and make the recipe diabetic-friendly. Substituting rice flour makes the dish gluten-free and is easy to make using the WonderMill Grain Mill. It’s a treat everyone can enjoy!

  • 4-5 cups fresh blackberries
  • 3T white sugar or Xylitol
  • ½t ground cinnamon
  • Topping:
  • ½ flour or rice flour
  • ½ ground flax seed
  • ⅓c white sugar or Xylitol
  • ⅓c flaked coconut
  • 3T butter

In a separate bowl combine flour, ground flax seed, sugar, and coconut. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle topping over blackberry mixture
Cover and bake for 20 minutes.
Uncover and continue baking until topping is golden.
Note: You can either purchase milled flax seed to use or easily grind whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder to achieve a similar result.

Grain Mill Challenge Experience: Initially a WonderMill Grain Mill appealed to me purely from a long-term emergency preparedness standpoint. While the WonderMill is perfect for that purpose, I found I actually enjoyed the versatility the mill provided and will be using it in my kitchen on a regular basis. Because of The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge I've broadened my culinary horizons and feel comfortable using all kinds of flours besides the traditional white flour most of us buy at the grocery store. It also feels great to be able to cook for my gluten-free friends. Thanks, WonderMill for the opportunity to experience your amazing product!
