Mixed Berry Crisp is such an easy and delicious recipe that anyone can easily make. Juicy berries, under a sweet, crisp, golden crust!

Mixed Berry Crisp – Gluten Free

Mixed Berry Crisp is the perfect recipe for anyone, even if you are a beginner baker. The crisp is so easy to make, and it turns out juicy and flavorful. The Mixed Berry Crisp can be made with your favorite berries.

I like using a mix of raspberries and blueberries. The berries are topped with an almond oatmeal crisp that is sweet and a bit crunchy. You can make the same recipe using apples, pears, peaches or juicy plums.

The topping is my favorite part, and the almonds add such a nice flavor and crunch. Served warm with ice cream, this delicious crisp is a hit with everyone!

Mixed Berry Crisp Recipe Tips:

  • First, use any berries that you like: raspberries, blueberries or raspberries.
  • The recipe also works great with stone fruit like peaches and plums.
  • I used FRESH berries. You can use frozen berries, make sure you thaw them and drain off any water excess.
  • Use gluten-free oats for a gluten-free version of the crisp.
  • Also, make sure you refrigerate the crisp topping, its the most important step, please don’t skip it.
  • In addition, do not skip the cornstarch as well, it will reduce the water content of the fruits and create that delicious, sticky texture.
  • The almonds can be skipped if you are allergic, or they can be replaced with other chopped nuts.
  • Bake the crisp to golden perfection and serve warm with ice cream!

Tools/Ingredients I used to make this Mixed Berry Crisp Recipe:

  • Cornstarch – I prefer using cornstarch instead of flour to thicken sauces, and this organic brand is my favorite
  • Cast Iron Skillet – get one and you will use it forever. I like that it heats evenly and consistently and that it comes pre-seasoned for the first use.
  • Blanched Slivered Almonds – can be used as a snack, added to salad and many desserts.

  • Using your fingers, crumble the chilled crisp topping and sprinkle it evenly over the berries.
  • Bake it in the center of the oven until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown, about 50 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Remove the crisp to a rack to cool slightly.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Hello, love your recipe for berry crisp. Can you suggested a substitute for the butter in the crumble topping. Trying to keep it lower in fat ? Thank you

Berries are in season now. It really does look amazing. Ill be making this over the weekend . ? I like you don't have much sugar in it as well. Normally, I'd have to sweeten things down.
