  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Crumble Topping:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Prepare the Blueberry Filling:
  • In a medium bowl, combine the blueberries, erythritol, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and xanthan gum (if using). Mix well to ensure the blueberries are evenly coated.
  • Spread the blueberry mixture evenly over the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  1. Make the Cream Cheese Layer:
  • In a separate bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with erythritol until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until fully combined and smooth.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the blueberry layer in the baking dish.
  1. Prepare the Crumble Topping:
  • In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, erythritol, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, mix the ingredients until it starts to resemble coarse crumbs.
  • Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the cream cheese layer.
  1. Bake:
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the blueberry filling is bubbling around the edges.
  • Before serving, take out of the oven and let cool for at least fifteen minutes. This helps the layers set and makes it easier to cut into squares.
  1. Serve:
  • Cut into 8 equal portions, then savour. This crumble can be served warm or cold, and pairs wonderfully with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of keto-friendly ice cream.

Tips for Success

  1. Using Xanthan Gum: Xanthan gum helps thicken the blueberry filling. If you don’t have it, you can omit it, but the filling may be a bit runnier.
  2. Sweetener Adjustments: Feel free to adjust the sweetness to your taste. Some may prefer more or less sweetener depending on their preference.
  3. Butter Temperature: Ensure your butter is cold when making the crumble topping to achieve the right texture.
  4. Serving Ideas: This crumble is delicious on its own, but you can elevate it by adding a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of keto-friendly vanilla ice cream.

Storing and Reheating

  • **Storage: **Reserve any leftovers for up to five days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
