Homemade Blackberry Crisp (Gluten-Free)
This is the best homemade Homemade Blackberry Crisp you’ll ever make! Made with oatmeal, this easy and healthy crisp is also gluten-free.
Listen. No matter how many times I go to type “crisp”, I keep writing “crispy”. I’m going to rename this blackberry crispy to keep myself from looking like an idiot. #toolate
Blackberries are the official weed of Western Washington, and they’re some damn tasty weeds at that. I always snicker at how much blackberries are at the grocery store because they grow EVERYWHERE around here. For free. Including directly behind the grocery store.
What’s In This Blackberry Crisp?
So very glad you asked my friend!
We’re rocking fresh and juicy blackberries, greek yogurt (yep, stay with me on this), oats, coconut flour, vanilla (related: try homemade) cinnamon, eggs honey, brown sugar (related: try homemade), and butter.
What If I Don’t Want to Or Can’t Use Coconut Flour?
If you eat gluten, then feel free to use all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour. But, if you need to keep this gluten-free, you could also use almond flour or your favorite gluten-free baking blend.
Here’s How to Make It:
Whisk the eggs and cornstarch together; mixing REALLY well. Add the vanilla, yogurt, salt, and honey.
Mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, powdered milk, cinnamon, and cut it with the chunks of butter.
Gently mix in the blackberries. Treat these beauties with the care and love they deserve. Pour the mixture into the greased pan, and top with the crumbly topping. Pro tip: use the butter wrapper to grease the pan!
Scoop a small amount of the finished crisp into a small bowl, and top with whipped cream or ice cream. Then, take that small bowl, set it aside, and eat the rest straight from the pan.
You’re not getting any judgment from me. After all, I’m the idiot who called this a “crispy”.
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes:
- Need to make more or less of the recipe? Click and slide the “servings” number on the recipe card and the ingredients will adjust as needed. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
- You can use frozen blackberries if you’d like. Allow them to thaw and drain the excess juices before incorporating into the custard mixture.
- Feel free to add additional fruit or a mix of different kinds. I like adding sliced peaches (related: how to cut a peach in 15 seconds), raspberries, nectarines, and/or blueberries.
