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!
