Blueberry and Strawberry Oat Crumble

Summer has officially begun and now there is a farmer’s market in every corner.  I love going to a farmer’s market in this season because everything just looks so pretty. Oh and let’s not forget everything tastes so yummy especially the berries.  Berries…berries…and some more berries….

Farmer's Market Berries

 

So of course I ended up buying more blueberries than I actually needed.  I had to do something with these tasty babies before they went bad.  It’s summertime and 4th of July is right around the corner.  What else could I do with something that is blue and be patriotic and the same time. This was the perfect reason to use my blueberries. I decided to make blueberry oat crumble tarts with homemade strawberry preserve.  Who can resist this combination.  Not me…was I dieting????  I like to tell myself this is a healthier (than usual) dessert since the main ingredient is blueberries!  YEP..that sounds better 🙂  Now let’s bake, eat and celebrate!!!!!

Ingredients
Filling
Oat Crumble
Servings: 3 1/2" tarts
Instructions
Preparing the Filling
  1. In a small bowl combine blueberries, strawberries, cornstarch and honey and mix well. Set aside until it is ready to be filled in the tart crumble.
Preparing the Oat Crumble
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º. In a medium size bowl combine all the dry ingredients and whisk to mix well. Then add the melted butter and the honey and continue mixing until the oats become a bit sticky or moist.
  2. Place some of the oat mixture into a tart pan and using your fingers or the back of a spoon gently press down spreading the mixture around the bottom and on the edges of the pan. Keep one cup of the mixture to use on top. I used 4 3 1/2" paper tart pans to have individual tarts.
  3. Then evenly distribute the filling into the prepared tart pan(s) and sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top. Before putting the tart(s) in the oven, I sprinkled it with brown sugar to get a nice, sweet top coat.
  4. Bake in the middle rack for about 40 minutes. When the top is a bit brown then it is ready. Remove from the oven and let rest on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. This recipe can be enjoyed by itself, with whip cream or ice cream.
