Blueberries and apples are healthy, even in pastry. I am turning a new leaf, sort of. I started a new diet, but I love my sweets, and that’s ok. Blueberry and apple pastries can still be healthy, if you do it right. I created this yummy treat the way I have always done, but you can always cut back on the sugar, or create the dough yourself and make it gluten free.
Dreaming Of Traveling Again
This stay at home stuff is awesome, if you like staying home, which I do sometimes. But I also love hitting the road and exploring this beautiful country. I was feeling a bit nostalgic for my 10 Day 10 State trip to the Pacific Northwest, and remembered the yummy pastries at the local coffee houses.
Use What You Have
I had some leftover apples and blueberries from the night before, and a package of refrigerator crescent rolls. I just added a few more things and viola, I had yummy homemade pastries to enjoy with my afternoon coffee.
Don’t Forget The Coffee
Don’t get me started on coffee, that is definitely a discussion for another day, but I will say, I love my coffee bar and being able to make yummy lattes anytime I want, I highly suggest everyone get a coffee bar. You don’t have to go as elaborate as I did, just pick a space in your kitchen that will work perfect.
Creating Blueberry And Apple Pastries
These are pretty much the easiest treat you can make. If you got kiddos, have them join in the creating process, you know they will join in on the eating part. You can put any kind of fruit in them, apples, blueberries, peaches, strawberries, even cherries, which is my favorite thing to stuff into a pastry.
- 1 Apple, I like honey crisp, but use what you like (or blueberries or any fruit of your choice, you can even use canned fruit like pie filling)

- 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
