Super Easy Blackberry Crisp. Warm and gooey with a crispy oat topping. Top with vanilla ice cream for an amazing dessert. Takes less than 10 minutes to throw together!
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.
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!
