There are times when all I crave is a good blueberry dessert.
Blueberries are healthy, tasty fruits that are right at home in so many desserts with their soft texture and slight tanginess. When cooked, they can be naturally quite sweet.
For my diabetic friends, however, it can be more difficult to enjoy desserts when you need to restrict your sugar intake.
With that said, diabetes shouldn’t get in the way of enjoying a nice, sweet treat from time to time!
Fortunately, there are loads of amazing desserts out there that are low-sugar enough to fit even the strictest diet. They’re just as tasty as sugary desserts, too — they just focus more on the actual flavors rather than the sweetness.
And if you’re a blueberry lover, I’ve got good news for you! Here are 12 of the best low sugar blueberry desserts you can enjoy right now:
This blueberry crisp is crunchy, tasty, and (best of all!) not overly sweet. It’s been designed to not contain too much sugar — only one tablespoon across six servings.
If you don’t want it to have any sugar at all, you can even use a sugar substitute like stevia.
The good thing is that this is a very versatile recipe, so if you decide to cut added sugar entirely, you can focus instead on substituting with your favorite spices and berries!
Sweet,juicy blueberry cobbler doesn’t need to be loaded with sugar or carbs!
This blueberry cobbler uses a sugar substitute that allows you to enjoy a classic dessert without having to worry about your sugar intake.

Feel free to serve it with sugar-free ice cream, sugar-free whipped cream, or even just by itself!
Cheesecake’s creamy goodness meets the sweetness of gooey blueberry sauce with this recipe.
Not only is it a no-bake, fridge-only treat, but it also only has about 6 grams of sugar per slice!
The cream cheese filling, blueberry filling, and topping uses erythritol as a sugar substitute. For the biscuit base, you can make your own low-carb breadcrumbs or substitute with almond flour.
Blueberry muffins are one of my absolute favorites, so it was wonderful when I found this low-carb version! These are just as moist, delicious, and satisfying as the sugary kind – only way healthier.
For starters, this is quite a flexible recipe. You can make around 12 smaller muffins for fewer carbs each or 10 larger muffins with classic bakery-style overflowing tops!
Not only are these muffins low on sugar, but they’re also keto-friendly with minimal carbs in general. For extra flavor, try adding healthy toppings like lemon zest and nuts!
This keto-friendly blueberry cobbler recipe uses only sugar substitutes and natural flavoring, but it’s just as delicious as any traditional dessert. The warm crumbliness will melt in your mouth and leave an oh-so-good first impression.

Each berry crumble pie uses half a cup of brown sugar and six tablespoons of Splenda sweetener. As the entire pie is divided into 12 servings, berry crumble is one of the best blueberry desserts for diabetics!
As a crunchy dessert that also functions as a quick portable snack, these skinny blueberry crumble bars have you covered.
For a total of 12 bars, it only uses one-third of a cup of light brown sugar and a tablespoon of granulated sugar.
The upside is that the blueberries and orange/lemon juice give it a flavor that doesn’t need to rely on high sugar content!
It’s quick to create – only taking around half an hour – making it perfect for satisfying dessert cravings on short notice.

Fancy a diabetic-friendly blueberry bannock? I’ve got you covered.
This blueberry bannock – a flat quick bread cut into triangles based on a traditional Aboriginal recipe – is crumbly and tender.
It doesn’t have sugar or any sweetening ingredients, so its dessert taste comes mostly from the natural blueberries!
It’s both easy to make and filling, and isn’t too sweet for breakfast either.
The contrast of these tangy blueberry yogurt lemon bars’ creaminess and crunchiness makes for an amazing dessert!
They aren’t too sweet either and pack light on sugar; one serving has only 90 calories and 6 grams of the naughty stuff (carbs)!
Aside from blueberry, yogurt, and lemon, interesting ingredients like avocado oil and maple syrup also add extra depth of flavor. Trust me, you’re in for a tasty treat with this one!
Giving up ice cream is one of the most disheartening aspects about having diabetes. Fortunately, there are also plenty of diabetic-friendly icy desserts you can enjoy instead!

These moist blueberry oat muffins are golden-brown on top and soft on the inside — just the perfect blend of contrasting textures! This one uses a little bit of brown sugar and honey for a unique syrupy taste.
If 10 grams of sugar per muffin still sounds steep, feel free to use a brown sugar substitute like stevia or erythritol to lower sugar levels even further.
The total prep and cooking time is only around 35 minutes, making it a speedy baked treat you can snack on in no time at all!
