Best Ever Healthy Berry Crisp

Is berry crisp healthy? A lot of people may think that berry crisp is inherently healthy because come on… there’s fruit in it! Right?! Well, the truth is, most berry crisp recipes have refined sugar, refined flour, and these ingredients really just don’t do your body any good. Instead of having refined and highly processed ingredients in a berry crisp, this recipe is made with pure maple syrup, coconut sugar, oats, oat flour, and fresh or frozen berries! You will simply adore the finished result, trust me! 

What Kind Of Berries To Use For Healthy Berry Crisp?

I used frozen mixed berries with sliced strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Literally ANY AND ALL BERRIES will work like a charm for this healthy berry crisp recipe. Don’t let the fact that you don’t have fresh berries hold you back from making this glorious summer dessert. FRESH OR FROZEN BOTH WORK! 🙂

Gluten-Free Berry Crisp Recipe

What I love about this easy berry crisp is the fact that we use oats as the main “flour.” I love using oat flour for most of my recipes, but for the crumble topping, I wanted to create a little more texture so we use 1 cup of rolled oats plus some oat flour. Using oats and tapioca flour makes this berry crisp recipe completely gluten-free! See notes below the recipe for tapioca flour subs.

Commonly Asked Questions

What size baking dish for berry crisp? I used a 2-quart baking dish (the same baking dish I use for my baked oatmeal recipes). A baking dish with a similar size and shape should work well! 8×8 or 9×9 baking dishes work perfectly too.

How should I cut my berries for berry crisp? The only berries you need to cut are strawberries if you’re using them. Just slice them or chop them into bite-sized pieces (the same doesn’t matter too much). All the other berries are baked WHOLE in this crisp, so no need to cut any of those up.

How many cups of berries for berry crisp? We use 6 cups of frozen berries for this healthy berry crisp recipe. See above for what type of berries you can use for berry crisp.

Can I make this berry crisp nut-free? Absolutely! Just omit the walnuts in the crumble topping to make this berry crisp nut-free! Easy, peasy!

What can I use as a substitute for grass-fed butter? You can use solid coconut oil, or vegan butter as a substitute for grass-fed butter. This will make the crisp vegan and dairy-free too!

How to Store Homemade Crisp

Store berry crisp in the baking dish with a lid or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week! I’ve also read that you can freeze leftover berry crisp for up to 3 months too!
