Growing up my grandma would also grow a plethora of blueberries. I swear she had a magic touch because every year they would be perfectly plump and sweet.

She would also make a few batches of blueberry buckle, and man did that taste delicious. So buttery, soft, fluffy, and embedded with bursts of fresh blueberries.

Now, I will say my blueberry buckle is not quite as good as hers, but it is dang tasty. I wanted to create a grain/gluten-free version, as many of you request more of those types of recipes! I will post a veganized version of my grandmas blueberry buckle in the near future because it is too good.

To make this blueberry buckle, start off by preparing the base.

The melted coconut oil, flax eggs, sugar, and lemon zest are whisked together in a large mixing bowl.

Then the flours, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon are added. The mixture is stirred with a wooden spoon or spatula until combined. Slowly, the non-dairy milk is added until a thick wet batter forms. Lastly, the blueberries are carefully folded in.

The batter is poured and spread in a parchment-lined 8×8 baking dish.

Next, the topping is prepared by combining all the ingredients in a mixing bowl until sticky, but slightly crumbly. The topping is sprinkled over the blueberry base.

The blueberry buckle is baked at 350f for 35-40 minutes until top is golden brown. It is then cooled for 15 minutes before slicing.
