Fig Crumble with Fresh Blueberries and Oats

This fig crumble is both tart and sweet with a crunchy oat topping. Serve it with some whipped cream or ice cream for a delightful summer dessert.

One of the true beauties of this rich dessert is that the figs that I used were very ripe. This made for a wonderful syrup like filling that rises up to envelop the crumble, giving the dish great taste and a fabulous texture in every bite.
