Simple, homestyle desserts are my favorite things to bake. Take this simple berry oatmeal crisp- it’s a sweet-tart mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries topped with a crispy, buttery oat topping. The dessert is easily made gluten free by using gluten free oats and oat flour, and is every bit as delicious.
Easy Berry Oatmeal Crisp Recipe
1 pint fresh blueberries
1 container (6 ounces) fresh blackberries
1 container (6 ounces) fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Oatmeal Crisp Topping:
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free, if needed)
1/4 cup oat flour (gluten free, if needed)
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
For berry filling, in a large bowl combine blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and granulated sugar; stir gently to coat. Spoon berry mixture in a 9-inch round pie plate.
For topping, in a medium bowl combine oats, oat flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add melted butter; stir until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over berries.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until bubbly around the edges and topping is deeply browned. The berry filling will be thin right out of the oven. The juices will thicken slightly once the crisp cools. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Serve warm or completely cooled.
