BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE

So, this is a delicious blueberry crumble that I made for my very dear friend Manu. She currently lives in Sweden, can’t wait to see her again. Something is missing when she’s not around. The recipe is pretty easy. Making a vegan crumble is not a big deal. Such a lovely pie. You can skip the apple sauce, but I really recommend it. Yum.

Health Benefits

Blueberries contain a group of natural phytonutrients which have a unique ability to protect both the watery and fatty parts of the brain against damage from some environmental toxins. Phytonutrients also decrease free radicals levels that are linked to aging and disease. Blueberries are packed with vitamin C, E, riboflavin, niacin, and folate. Studies conclude that compounds in blueberries may reverse some age-related memory loss and motor skill decline.

Oats are great. They have a higher concentration of well-balanced protein than other cereals and they contain a good balance of essential fatty acids, which have been linked with longevity and general good health. They enhance performance when ingested 45 minutes to 1 hour before exercise of moderate intensity.
