Blueberry crisp is an easy dessert recipe your family will love.

Blueberry crisp

This is one of my favorite ways to use blueberries.  Blueberry crisp takes only a few minutes to throw together and you have a delicious dessert that tastes like you spent hours making it.  Take this to any event, function or holiday occasion and you won’t bring any home with you.  I love the taste of the oats combined with the nuts in this recipe.  You can double the recipe. It keeps well refrigerated for several days.  Blueberry crisp is good reheated in the microwave or oven.  I love it with whipped cream on top but ice cream is great, too.  You might like to check out our recipe for cheesy apple casserole, too.

Ingredients Needed for Blueberry Crisp:

Fresh or frozen blueberries

White granulated sugar

    This crisp is so good. I’ve made it three times and I normally don’t care for crisps. I cut the recipe in half and it’s perfect for two. This is even better cold. Thanks for the recipe.5 stars

  2. Debra Pryce says:

    I made this for a small dinner party the other night and it got rave reviews – even from non-‘dessert people’! So easy and delicious! It was great for breakfast the next morning, too.
    I’m going to make another one for luncheon next week but will try it with peaches.
    Thanks for the great recipe!5 stars

  5. This blueberry crisp is absolutely delicious. It’s the first time I’ve done a crisp with blueberries and it turned out fantastic! The old fashioned oats and nuts add a great texture to the topping. The cinnamon is a tasty addition and the cornstarch made the berries thicken-up just perfectly.5 stars

  6. We really enjoyed this recipe. Not to sweet. Used a scant 4 cups of blueberries. Lovely served with vanilla bean ice cream. Will definitely make this again.5 stars

  7. Can you use blueberry pie filling and leave the sugar off the top of the berries?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You can try it.

  8. I love this recipe, it’s so easy. I change the flour to cassava flour I get at Walmart and it’s great. Thanks for sharing this with us5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Thank you, Karen! So happy you are enjoying the recipe.

  9. Would almond flour work in place of the ap flour?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Jenn, I’ve never tried it but I think it may work fine. You can try it and see. 🙂

  10. I’ve made this twice now with the blueberries. Today I’m making it with peaches. Easiest recipe EVER!

    Question:. Can this be made ahead and stored in fridge to bake tonight?5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, that should work ok for you, Laura. So happy you are enjoying the recipe. Thank you for the great rating.

  11. This is delicious !!! Definitely a go to!5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      So happy you enjoyed this recipe and thank you for the great rating. Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. I’m allergic to tree nuts. Any suggestions on a substitute?

  13. Tastes amazing, but I will have to increase the measurements for the topping because I always have too little, so when I go to serve it, you get mostly blueberries. I love the crisp part, so I want to be able to enjoy it!5 stars

  14. This looks so delicious. Should we defrost the frozen blueberries prior to making the dish?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      You don’t have to defrost the berries, Tricia.

      1. Toni Urbano-Goldinger says:

        Oh, Yummy! Made this for breakfast this morning, and what a hit! Trouble is when you’re quarantined due to Covid, and can’t sleep….you get up and bake at 2:00am. This will be so good for Easter Breakfast. (Now that we are all vaccinated!!)5 stars
