This Blueberry Crisp is the perfect spring and summer dessert! The blueberries are juicy and sweet, all while topped with the most amazing crumble!
Whenever I make fruit and berry crisps I have to make a little extra crumble. I’ve been doing this for ages now. I love the crumble! The texture of the oats, sweetness of the brown sugar, and the hint of cinnamon is perfection!
You know I made more crumble for this blueberry crisp recipe! In fact, the blueberry filling to crumble ratio is 1:1. Yes! You get the same amount of blueberry filling and crumble in every. Single. Bite. What more could you want in a berry crisp recipe?!
This recipe originates from my dear friend Natalie from Life Made Simple. I made this crisp last year and my family and I loved it! I opted to take out the lemon zest she uses, and added a little more cornstarch to make the filling a tad thicker and less runny. As mentioned above, I increased the amount of crumble used in the recipe too. Minor tweaks resulting in something truly delicious!
This blueberry crisp is so delicious and it’s sooooo easy to make!
If you’re using fresh blueberries rinse them off, place them in a bowl and add the sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice.
Can you use frozen blueberries to make Blueberry Crisp? Yes.
I had a lot of fresh blueberries on hand, so I opted to use those. However, I’ve made this blueberry crisp with frozen blueberries and the results are phenomenal.
Place the sugared blueberries in a baking dish. Now, prepare the crumble.
Once all of the ingredients have been added to the bowl, cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender.
Place the crumble over the blueberries. Now comes the hard part, waiting!
I highly recommend you serve this blueberry crisp warm with a side of cold vanilla ice cream. YUM! I need to make more of this stat.
The most delicious and refreshing blueberry crisp! It's topped with an irresistible crumble too. Served with a scoop of ice cream and you have a perfect spring/summer treat!
- 4 cups fresh blueberries (frozen works too)
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 (heaping) cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/3 cup + 1 Tablespoon packed brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, cold and cubed (1 stick of butter)
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray or butter a 9"x6" inch pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Mix to combine.
Place the blueberry mixture into the prepared baking pan. Spread into an even layer. Set aside.
In a medium size bowl add the flour, oats, brown sugar, sat, and cinnamon. Whisk to combine.
Add the cold cubed butter. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the mixture until the butter is a tad larger than the size of peas.
Evenly sprinkle the crumble mixture over the blueberries. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crumble is golden brown and the blueberry juices are bubbling.
Remove and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream!
