This easy Berry Crisp can be made with fresh or frozen fruit and takes just minutes to pull together.
A sweet and crumbly layer of oats, coconut, flour and pecans with a base of juicy blueberries, raspberries and blackberries is dessert all year long!
Why We Love This Crisp
The topping is great to make ahead! I freeze individual bags of crisp topping and when we need a dessert, I simply add fruit and sprinkle the topping right from frozen…
This means dessert with only about 5 minutes of prep!!
You can use fresh or frozen berries to make this.
FRESH: In the summer you can use fresh berries and feel free to change up the ratios and the berries!
FROZEN: In fall and winter, I buy a big bag of triple berry mix to keep on hand in my deep freezer. When using frozen berries for berry crisp there is no need to defrost them first however you will need to add some extra cook time.
How to Make Berry Crisp
If easy is what you’re after, this recipe won’t disappoint.
- Berries: Combine berries (per recipe below). Tip: Feel free to substitute orange zest or a combination of both if you are feeling adventurous!
- Topping: Combine the topping mix, adding pecans or your other favorite chopped nuts as desired.
- Bake: Sprinkle the topping over the berries and bake until berries are hot and bubbly.
That’s all there is to it!
To Store Leftover Crisp
Unless you live in a warm and humid climate, you should be able to store berry crisp for 24 hours at room temperature. Just make sure to cover it tightly. After 24 hours refrigerate it in an airtight container, it should keep for 3 to 5 days.
- To Freeze, cool it completely and cover tightly, either with a double layer of foil or in a tightly sealed container. Defrost in the fridge overnight.
- To Reheat, place in a 350°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes, covered.
