This berry crisp is the perfect summer dessert, with a fresh triple berry base topped with the best crunchy oat crumble topping. It’s the best served warm with a big scoop of ice cream!
This berry crisp is made with three fresh berries, it uses raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I love the flavor combination of these three berries together, plus they add just the right amount of juiciness to the berry crumble. All topped with a sweet crispy crumble topping, made with oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon for just the right sweetness, and crunchiness atop the sweet warm berries. Top the whole mixture with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream that just ties the whole dessert together.
Some of my favorite summer time desserts are made with fresh fruits, in a warm dessert all topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Like my peach cobbler dump cake, or a hot brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can’t beat the combination of a hot dessert with cold ice cream on top.
This berry crisp can be made all year long, and although I think it’s perfect in the summer with fresh berries, it would be amazing on the Thanksgiving dessert table, or for Easter, or just for a yummy post dinner treat. If you make it in the fall or winter and can’t find any fresh berries, you can also use frozen berries in a pinch.
(Just look at those gorgeous berries!!)
Can I use Frozen Berries to make Berry Crisp?
You can use frozen berries instead of fresh berries in this fruit crisp. You want to bring the fruit out of the freezer a few minutes before you need it. This will help it soften just a bit so you can mix it up better with the sugar and flour The crisp will probably need to bake for an extra 10 minutes or so to cook out the extra juices from the frozen berries. Cook the berry crisp until the berry filling is bubbling.
If the crumble topping starts to turn too dark of a color, you can cover the top with foil for the last few minutes of baking, as needed.
This berry crisp is one of my new favorite desserts. I love a good crisp so much more than pie for fruit desserts, because the crunchy sweet oatmeal and brown sugar topping is so delicious and the perfect pairing with the sweet berries.
This berry cumble is so easy to make with only a few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand in your pantry!
How to Make Berry Crisp?
First you’ll throw together your crumble topping, you’ll whisk together your flour, oats brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in your cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside till needed.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together your berries, sugar and flour. Try to coat the berries evenly in the dry mixture. Pour the fruit into a greased baking pan. Then sprinkle the topping evenly over the top of the berries.
Bake it all up for about 45 minutes until the top is golden and the berry filling is bubbly. Allow the crisp to cool for a few minutes before serving warm, topped with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
This triple berry crisp is the perfect summer dessert to make using fresh berries. It’s perfect for serving at a party or backyard bbq! It’s so tasty and the perfect combination of sweet and soft berries topped with the crunchy crumble topping.

Just made this. Nite the step-by-step instructions for making the crumble mixture don’t list adding in the oats. I realized this when I was about to sprinkle the crumble mixture on the berries so hastily added them to the crumble mix.
I’m so sorry about that! They are supposed to be added to the end of the crumb mixture so they keep their texture. I added that step!
