Easy Blueberry Crumble

- No need to prepare a pie crust or assemble a cake. Just toss some fruit, sprinkle on the streusel topping, and cook! So easy!
- This quick and easy summer dessert is suitable for any occasion!
- Make blueberry crumble with fresh or frozen blueberries. So simple and quick.
Ingredients for Blueberry Crumble
This quick and easy recipe can be adjusted to fit all kinds of different fruits, fresh or frozen.
Blueberries: Fresh or frozen blueberries can be used in this recipe. Look for whole, firm berries, and be sure to remove the tiny stems if you see them. A sprinkle of all-purpose flour helps to thicken the juices in the pan.
Topping: Flour, sugar, butter, and cinnamon is all you’ll need to make a crispy, crumbly topping. Feel free to use your favorite gluten-free flour and sugar-free sweetener.
- Mix and match blueberries with other fresh or frozen berries, rhubarb, apples, peaches, or pears.
- Add a little bit of fresh lemon juice or lemon zest with the berries.
- Old-fashioned oats can be mixed into the crumble mixture.
How to Make Blueberry Crumble
- Prepare topping (as per the recipe below) and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
- Toss blueberries with flour and sugar and place in a baking dish.
- Top crumble with streusel topping and bake until the fruit is bubbly and the top is golden brown.
- Serve warm with ice cream.
PRO TIP: Chill the topping so it doesn’t melt while the blueberry filling is being prepared.
Storing Blueberry Crumble
- Keep leftover blueberry crumble covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Enjoy it cold, or reheat it in the microwave.
- A baked crumble can be frozen (once chilled) for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before reheating. Or freeze an unbaked crumble separate from the streusel topping. Thaw, top, and bake as directed.
- Leftover blueberry crumble can be mixed in a bowl and pressed into a casserole dish and frozen to make grab-and-go blueberry bars!
