450 g fresh blueberries or blackberries
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp potato or tapioca starch
135 g gluten-free rolled oats
1 serving  (34 g) Vanilla Vega® Essentials or (35 g) Vanilla Vega® Clean* Protein
30 g pumpkin seeds
30 g sunflower seeds
1 Tbsp chia seeds
80 mL coconut oil
Pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan/gas 5.
  2. In a baking dish, combine the blueberries, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup and potato or tapioca starch. Mix together.
  3. In a food processor pulse the sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds until they become finely chopped.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the seed mixture, oats, chia seeds, Vega® powder, salt and coconut oil, mix together with hands until the mixture becomes moist and crumbly.
  5. Place the oat mixture on top of the blueberries in the baking dish, until the entire top is covered with the crumble mixture.
