Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup date sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (solid)
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Line and grease a 8×8 or 9×9 square pan. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, baking powder, flour, maple syrup, salt, coconut oil, lemon juice and zest and olive oil. Combine the mixture together with your hands or a large spoon, ending up with a somewhat crumbly, but pliable dough. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, reaching all the way to the edges and it is evenly distributed.
  3. In another medium bowl, combine the blueberries, cornstarch and maple syrup. Stir until combined.
  4. Top the crust in the pan with the blueberry mixture, then top the blueberries with the remainder of the flour mixture, crumbling the dough over the berries evenly.
  5. Bake at 375 for 30-305 minutes, or until top is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
