Blueberry Crisp

This recipe calls for just a half-cup of brown sugar for 12 servings. Rolled oats and wheat germ add the goodness of grains.


  • Filling:
    • 5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (don't thaw before using)
  • Topping:
    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup rolled oats, uncooked
    • 1/4 cup wheat germ
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened but not melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Place the fruit in a 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish.
  3. Combine the brown sugar, oats, wheat germ, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in the margarine with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the top of the blueberries. Bake for 25 minutes or until the fruit is tender. Cool before serving.
