"Darrin, help me out here. What are you hungry for?"
...part of being a church family means that your weekly calendar runs on a different rhythm than other families'. Sunday mornings were weekdays, and often Saturdays too, so the weekend really began for us on Sundays after church.
- 4 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen, also just about any fruit will do! I sometimes mix blackberries with the blueberries)
- 1 tablespoon flour (optional)
For the topping:
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup almond meal (I make this by putting a few handfuls of almonds into my food processor and chopping them until they are a fine, pebbly consistency. Alternatively, you can purchase this in most grocery stores in the baking aisle.)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup (or brown sugar in a pinch)
- 1/4 cup canola or olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
"After we got home from the early service, my mom and my brother and I would wait to hear my day's heavy footsteps coming down the long, tiled hallway after the last service. He always went straight to his closet to change from his church clothes into his Chicago Bears sweatshirt, and when he walked through the study door, the weekend began. He was tired but happy, loose, easygoing." ~Shauna Niequist Bread and WineYou can see a video of Shauna making this delicious dish here on the (in)courage.me website.
