You can assemble this instant take on the classic baked dessert in less than 10 minutes. It's great served warm with frozen yogurt or ice cream. You'll get the benefits of eating blueberries, which have been named one of the world's healthiest foods. Blueberries rank high in antioxidants that help protect against cancer, heart disease, and other age-related diseases. All this, and blueberries are delicious, too.
Frozen blueberries also work well in this recipe, so it can become a year-round favorite. Frozen wild blueberries are the best!
2 cups blueberries
2 cups peeled and diced peaches
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup granola without raisins
Combine the blueberries, peaches, and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for about 3 to 5 minutes or until the blueberries begin to burst.
Stir together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth. Stir into the blueberry mixture along with the brown sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened.
Spoon the blueberry-peach mixture into dessert bowls or plates, dividing equally. Sprinkle each serving with granola.
