When you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert, baking fruit with a nutty topping is probably the easiest thing you can do.

PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOKING TIME: 30-40 minutes
YIELD: 8 servings


  • 2 pints of fresh blueberries (use 4 green apples, sliced, for the 21DSD)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup almond meal/almond flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped macadamia or walnuts
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (or coconut oil for dairy-free)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (omit for the 21DSD)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 pinches of sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Place the blueberries in a 9 inch x 9 inch baking dish, and squeeze the juice from half of the lemon over them. Toss slightly to coat the blueberries with the juice.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the almond meal or flour, macadamia nuts, melted butter, remaining lemon juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Spread the nut topping evenly over the blueberries, and bake until the fruit is well cooked/bubbly and the topping is golden brown (approximately 30-40 minutes).
