Triple Berry Crumble

Triple Berry Crisp – made with frozen fruit – is one of the most low-effort/high-reward desserts you can make! Essentially mix your dry ingredients together to make a buttery crumb topping, then pour that over your fruit and bake to sheer perfection. It’s divine with a big scoop of ice cream on top!

My fiancé asked a great question while I tested the recipe – is this considered dessert or breakfast? Honestly, with the antioxidants from the berries and the filling fiber from the oats… I wouldn’t judge you too much if you had a big slice of this for breakfast!


Ingredients

  • Triple Berry Frozen Fruit Blend – This recipe uses frozen fruit which is a lifesaver when using raspberries, since they seem to grow mold on the car ride home! You can sub for fresh fruit if you prefer; I would remove a few minutes from the cooking time.
  • Oats Quick oats are always in our home. You could also use rolled/old fashioned oats.
  • Cold Butter – Cubes of cold butter are mixed in the topping to bring everything together.
  • Brown Sugar – A touch of brown sugar in the crumble topping adds the perfect amount of sweetness.

How to Make Triple Berry Crumble

Whether you call it berry crumble or berry crisp, this dessert is perfect to make especially for those who are a little hesitant about baking. It’s super hard to mess this up!

With Easter coming up, this would be a hit at the dinner table. It also makes a great Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving treat, or a “just thinking of you” surprise.

  1. Start by mixing together your frozen fruit, all purpose flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract, salt, and honey. The honey will seize up because of the fruit’s temperature; don’t worry about that.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Cut the cold cubes of butter into the oat mixture. You can use a dough cutter, a fork, or your hands. The texture should be like wet sand.
  4. Prepare a ceramic baking dish with nonstick spray.
  5. Pour in the fruit mixture, then add the crumble on top. I like to press some parts down gently to help it form little nuggets.
  6. Bake at 350℉ for50-55, until the fruit is bubbling up the sides and the crumble topping is golden brown.
  7. Let the crisp cool for about 5 minutes so the filling will set, then serve with some vanilla bean ice cream.

Variations/Substitutions

  • You can use your favorite type of berries/fruit in this recipe. Try strawberry, rhubarb, or peach!
  • If you’re not a fan of butter, try using melted coconut oil to make the crumble topping come together.
  • Add pecan or walnut pieces to the crumble mix! Bake as usual.

Ingredients
  

Berry Filling

  • 5 cups triple berry blend frozen fruit
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • ½ ct. lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • lemon zest

Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter cold, and cut into cubes

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, pour in the frozen berries, flour, honey, the juice from ½ a lemon, vanilla extract, salt, and lemon zest. Stir thoroughly and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Using a pastry cutter, a fork, or your fingers, cut in the cold butter cubes. The mixture should be slightly damp and resemble wet sand.
  • Preheat your oven to 350℉.
  • Prepare a pie dish or baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Pour in the berry filling mix.
  • Top the berries with the crumble topping. Slightly press the topping down; it doesn't have to be perfectly even.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 50 – 55 minutes. You'll know it's ready when the fruit layer is bubbling and the crumble topping is golden brown.
  • Let the pan rest for at least 5 minutes so the filling can set and slightly cool down.
  • Serve on its own, or with vanilla bean ice cream on top. Enjoy!

Notes

If your crumble topping is too dry for your taste, take the dish out of the oven and pour some melted coconut oil on top. Using a fork, lightly stir the topping to evenly distribute the oil. 
Then, bake for another 5-8 minutes. The crumble topping should be more “crumbly”.
