Apple Blackberry Crumble With Hazelnut Topping (GrF, GF,DF)

No refined sugar, no grains, optional dairy, easy substitutions…what more could a person ask for in a sweet treat?!

I don’t make desserts that often. I find I don’t have a lot of self control when it comes to having desserts around the house. So I usually save making desserts for when we have guests, or a birthday, and when I can usually send some home with our guests to lessen how much is leftover the day after.

There’s a problem with that though. I like having dessert once a week and I honestly don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I also like to make them at home, because I have more control as to what kinds of sugars are being used, better quality flour and overall, a little healthier so they have less impact on the body.

Her favourite dessert is peanut butter cheesecake, so that’s what the birthday girl is going to get! Also one of my favourite, however that get’s a little tricky with all the peanut allergies out there, so I’ll need an alternate choice for her guest. I managed to locate an amazing cheesecake recipe and I’ll be making a lighter and more summery dessert. It is blackberry season on Vancouver Island and a short walk out the front door provides a bountiful supply of wild blackberries. It’s like I’ve moved to heaven. As per usual, I have modified from the recipe that inspired me and created a slightly lower fat version without forsaking flavor. If you have to give up flavor to eat dessert, why bother at all.
