Ingredient Notes

  • Mixed Fresh Berries: I use fresh blueberries as the main ingredient as I love the fragrant flavor and structure they give to the filling. Juicy blueberries are combined with fresh raspberries and blackberries which add nice acidity and color to the crisp.
  • Rolled Oats: Also called old fashioned oats, these are chunky oat flakes that are minimally processed. They lend a wonderfully chewy consistency and hearty oaty flavor to the topping. Essentially it tastes like an oatmeal cookie!
  • All-Purpose Flour: You can swap this for 1:1 all-purpose GF flour to make a gluten-free version.
  • Sugar: The crumble uses a combination of brown and granulated sugar. Brown for flavor, and white for crunch. I use granulated sugar for the filling to enhance the berry flavor and hold on to the vibrant purple color, but you could swap that for brown sugar or coconut sugar too.
  • Vegan Butter: You'll want block-style butter, not spreadable margarine if possible.

💬 FAQs

Does fruit crisp need to be refrigerated?

Yes, store it in an airtight container or cover it with plastic wrap and chill. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze it in a sealed container, then follow the instructions for reheating in the oven below, adding 10 minutes to the bake time.

Can I reheat berry crisp?

Absolutely. You can warm it back up before serving in the microwave or oven.

Microwave: In a microwave-safe bowl at medium heat for 2 minutes.

Oven: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and heat for 15-20 minutes. You may want to cover the top with aluminum foil to keep in the moisture.

What's the difference between a crisp and a crumble?

Both are fruit-filled desserts that are baked with a streusel topping and without a bottom crust.

The names are often used interchangeably depending on different regions. But mostly, the difference between the two is a crisp contains oats and sometimes nuts like pecans or walnuts, whereas a crumble usually has a simpler streusel made with flour, butter, and sugar.

Can I use different fresh fruit?

Yes! You can add a mix of strawberries, pitted cherries, peaches, plums, - pretty much any summer fruit you fancy!

Ingredients

Crisp Topping

  • 160 g (1 ¼ cups) all-purpose flour
  • 80 g (1 cup) rolled oats, (old-fashioned oats)
  • 60 g ( cup) granulated sugar, *see note 1
  • 60 g (¼ cup) light brown sugar, *see note 1
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 120 g (4.23 oz) vegan butter, room temperature, cut into cubes

Berry Filling

  • 950 g (6 cups) mixed berries, fresh or frozen *see note 2
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 75 g (¼ cup + 2 tablespoons) granulated sugar, *see note 1
  • 60 g (½ cup) all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • Prepare: Preheat your oven to fan-forced 160°C/320°F or conventional 175°C/350°F.
  • Crisp Topping: Add the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt to a medium bowl and stir. Rub in the cubed butter with your fingertips until it resembles a crumble consistency. Set aside in the fridge while you make the filling.
  • Berry Filling: Toss the berries into a 10.5"x7.5" baking dish. Add the lemon juice and vanilla extract and mix with a spoon to coat the berries.
  • Add the sugar and flour and mix until the berries are evenly coated. They will release some juices.
  • Assemble: Top with the crumble mixture in an even layer.
  • Bake: Place the dish on an aluminum baking sheet or regular baking sheet (this will help it bake evenly and catch any overspill). Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serving and storage: Once baked, you can let the crumble cool slightly for 10 minutes and serve hot. Once cooled, cover leftovers with plastic wrap or foil, or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Notes

  1. Sugar: You can use all brown or white sugar, or coconut sugar which will give a darker result. If based in the States, use organic white sugar to ensure it is vegan.
  2. Mixed Berries: I use 400g blueberries, 300g blackberries, and 250g raspberries. If using frozen, there's no need to defrost them.
