Blackberry Crisp is the perfect summer dessert! Buttery, crumbly oat topping covers a sweet berry filling. Serve the crisp slightly warm with a scoop of ice cream!



For The Blackberry Filling:

  • 8 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup flour

For The Crumble Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 tablespoons butter, cold and cut into small cubes


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Butter a 8″ x 10″ baking dish, or any shape 2 quart capacity baking dish and set aside.
  3. Add the blackberries, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt and flour to a large bowl. Toss the ingredients together as gently as possible so as not to smash the berries.
  4. Add the oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and butter to another bowl. Using a pastry blender, forks or clean hands, blend the topping together until all the ingredients are combined and the butter is worked into the oats, flour and sugar. See the post for pictures as a reference.
  5. Pour the blackberry filling into the buttered dish, spreading into an even layer. Top with the oat topping and place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the topping is brown and the filling is bubbling.
  6. Remove the crisp from the oven and let cool at least 15 minutes. The filling will be syrupy, but will thicken as it cools.
  7. Serve the blackberry crisp in bowls with vanilla ice cream on top.
