Fresh vs. Frozen
In making this recipe, you’ll inevitably encounter the age-old question: fresh blueberries, or frozen?
Of course fresh is always best, but there are a couple of obstacles associated with fresh blueberries in particular.
For starters, their growing season is short. As in, blink and you’ll miss it.
The other is that they tend to be really expensive. I know my jaw has dropped at the price of one of those teeny clear plastic bins containing what appears to be a handful of fruit.
If price is no object, or it happens to be blueberry season, go for it. Otherwise, frozen blueberries are an acceptable alternative.
If you go the frozen route, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, make sure the blueberries don’t contain any added sugar.
Watch out for bags that say “sweetened” or “lightly sweetened,” and check the ingredient list on the back.
Once you’ve hunted down some unsweetened berries, make sure you resist the temptation to thaw them before starting on this keto blueberry coconut crumble recipe. They can go right in the oven, but you may need to adjust your cooking time by about five minutes.
