Easy Homemade Blueberry Crisp

Crisps are such wonderful desserts! They are super easy to put together and have tons of flavor and texture. In many ways it’s like eating pie, but without as much work.

Part of what makes this blueberry crisp so good is the combination of flavors and textures. The filling is flavored with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and thickens beautifully. Then the topping has cinnamon and nutmeg as well, with a lovely crispness to it that compliments the juicy berries so well. It’s the best part! When served warm with a scoop of ice cream, it’s truly like biting into a little bit of heaven. SO good!

Blueberry Crisp Ingredients

The ingredients for this blueberry crisp are nice and straight forward. You probably have most of them in your pantry. You just need your fresh blueberries and you’re on your way to a delicious dessert!

Cinnamon Oat Topping

  • All Purpose Flour: Combined with the oats, this gives the topping it’s structure and crisps up during baking.
  • Old Fashioned Rolled Oats: Gives the topping extra crispiness and flavor – a little bit like an oatmeal cookie!
  • Brown Sugar: Provides hints of molasses flavor.
  • Cinnamon and Nutmeg: Gives this topping a comforting flavor.
  • Salt
  • Unsalted Butter: Binds everything together.

Blueberry Filling

  • Blueberries: I prefer fresh, but you could use frozen. Frozen blueberries do often have extra moisture though and are frozen solid, so you’ll want to bake it a touch longer for it have time to heat up and thicken it a little more.
  • Brown sugar: Sweetens the berries with hints of molasses.
  • Unsalted Butter
  • All Purpose Flour: A little bit of flour helps thicken the sweet sauce.
  • Lemon Juice: For a fresh pop of flavor.
  • Cinnamon and Nutmeg: Gotta have these comforting flavors in every bite.
  • Pinch of salt

How to make Blueberry Crisp

This could not be easier to make. First, you’ll combine all of the ingredients for the topping, except for the butter. Then add the cold butter and cut it into the dry ingredients until it gets crumbly and comes together.

Next, combine all the ingredients for the blueberry filling and stir well to evenly coat the blueberries.

Pour the blueberry mixture into an 8 or 9 inch square dish, then sprinkle the topping evenly over top.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the topping is golden and bubbling around the edges and the sauce has thickened. Let it cool for a few minutes, then serve!

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

I love using fresh blueberries, but you could use frozen. You just will need to adjust the baking time a bit. Frozen blueberries do have extra moisture and are frozen solid, so you’ll want the crisp to have time to heat up and thicken a little more.

Serving and Storing Blueberry Crisp

  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream!
  • Store your blueberry crisp well covered in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat, scoop some into a bowl and reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, depending on how large the serving it and how warm you want it.

      There’s actually a section about frozen blueberries in the blog post, but yes you can. You’ll just probably need to adjust baking time for the additional moisture and cold berries.
