The Best Blackberry Crumble

Labeling this as the best blackberry crumble might seem like a reach, but I can assure you this will meet any of your sweet tooth needs. 

Summer means fresh berries, and fresh berries mean copious amounts of freshly baked pies, cobblers, tarts, and of course crumbles. 

Sweet juicy blackberries tossed in sugar, almond extract, and lemon zest. Topped with a crispy, buttery, and flaky crumble topping. This isn’t like a traditional crumble topping, instead, it resembles clusters of soft scones. It will melt in your mouth. Even more, if topped with cold vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream….

These muffins are not as large as I remember, but I dont think I could handle something that big again! However, the taste is just as I remember…maybe even better. Super fluffy and moist, and the perfect amount of lemon flavor that leaves you feeling refreshed and oh so satisifed. …

Almond Bear Claws | Vegan

Not going to lie I have been on a roll with recipe testing and posting on my blog, but this last weekend I felt stumped because I couldn’t think of anything new that would require time and some creativity. I then turned to Facebook and asked for recipe suggestions. Well, thanks to my lovely friend Trisha she suggested I veganize almond bear claws. Thank the Lord she did, because they turned out amazing! As always…keep reading to get this life changing recipe. 

The dough came out so flaky and buttery, just like how laminated dough should be. Filled with a rich and delicious almond paste (or marzipan), sprinkled with crunchy slivered almonds, and dusted with powdered sugar. It is like bringing an artisan bakery to your home.
