Easy Blackberry Crisp

What better way to use up summer fruit than with a fruit crisp? They are super easy to throw together, customizable and take much less effort than whipping up a pie. This fruit crisp takes only 10 minutes of prep time, 30 minutes in the oven and only 8 ingredients!

I call this the lazy girls fruit crisp.

Easy Blackberry Crisp

I start by adding fruit, lemon juice and sugar to a large bowl and toss the fruit until coated. The lemon juice adds a nice tartness and the sugar sweetens up the crisp.

If you don’t have blackberries substitute your favorite fruit or do a mixture of fruits.

The crumb mixture takes just a couple of minutes to prepare and can be done while the oven is preheating. I used the same crisp topping as my Individual Mixed Berry Crisp. The crumb topping is made with old fashioned oats, hazelnut meal, butter and a smidge of all purpose flour. If you can’t find the hazelnut meal in the grocery store subsistue all purpose flour. The hazelnut meal gives the crumb topping a nice nutty flavor.

The crisp topping gets added to a food processor and pulsed until combined. (So much easier that mixing by hand!)

This Easy Blackberry Crisp is perfect for summer.

Serve warm with a big scoop of ice cream and enjoy!

  • I am in LOVE with this “lazy girl’s” blackberry crips!!! Anything that is easy and quick always wins my heart, but this also looks absolutely delicious! Love the hazelnut meal addition to the crumb topping – I bet that pairs amazing with this! Pinned! ♡ Cheers! /

  • How yummy! I love the lazy girl’s crisp! This is how I make the filling for my crisps too, but I love that you shared your recipe for a nice crumble topping. Usually I use leftover pie crust dough I have in the freezer, but it’s bound to run out one of these days from all my lazy girl tendencies 😉 Thanks for sharing the recipe for this gorgeous blackberry crisp, Kelley! I love how your recipes are always low maintenance and a cinch to make <3

  • This looks awesome! Crisp is such an easy dessert to throw together, which is perfect for summer, when it’s hot and I’m feeling super lazy, but want something delish 🙂

  • This looks gorgeous, Kelley! We just made a some crisps and crumbles from the fruit we picked – they are my favorite dessert to bake during the summer and now I wish I had some of yours too! It sounds so delicious!

  • Using summer fruit with crisp is an amazing idea! My lovely girl friend made it. And it is absolutely tasty. Can’t wait for more incredible recipe. Your blog has been our favorite so far.

    Really great recipe, changed it up, using what I had, made it twice, once with frozen blackberries and a can of mixed fruit, almond flour, almond extract, next frozen raspberries and fresh peaches. Used 2 tbsp cornstarch and 3 tbls agave syrup , 1/2 butter and 1/2 cashew butter for the crumb topping, came out great. Thanks.

      Hi Renate,

      Cool tricks! I’ll have to try the one with the cashew butter, that sounds great!

      Have a great day!
