In a large bowl, mix brown sugar and cornstarch until well blended. Add blueberries and gently toss to coat. Add lemon zest and juice and toss to combine. Place oats in food processor fitted with steel blade. Process for 15 seconds. Add brown sugar and salt and pulse four times to combine. Add almonds and pulse two times. Sprinkle the small pieces of butter on top of the oat mixture and pulse five quick times. Pour the berry mixture into the prepared baking dish (if using ramekins, pour ½ cup berries into each). Spread the topping evenly over the berries. Bake for 30 minutes, or until filling is very bubbly and topping is browned. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving..
