One of the most common New Year resolutions is to lose weight, so I am sure there are many eager to get started, and some may be super sore from exercising. The first four ingredients in this recipe help combat sore muscles naturally.
2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup of tart cherry juice
1 tablespoon of ground ginger
1/2 cup of sugar or Splenda
1/4 cup of honey
1 cup of instant oats
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
2/3 cup of butter, melted
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of flour
2 tablespoons of corn starch
Combine honey, melted butter, ginger, oats, flour and brown sugar in a bowl. Mix by hand until soft crumbles form. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat cherry juice and sugar. Bring to a simmer. Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup of water and mix together.
Slowly stir cornstarch mixture into the simmering pot. Stir until it slightly thickens. Let sauce cool to room temperature.
Pour sauce over blueberries ad pomegranate seeds and toss separately into six small baking dishes, or place all in one 8-by-8 pan. Top with crumb mixture and place in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes.
Recipe serves six.
