This delicious easy blackberry crisp is a wonderful way to enjoy blackberries. It’s a great dessert for any gathering and perfect for just a few people. We love any kind of crisp but this one is so good with fresh blackberries. It’s great hot or cold, but I personally love it warm with vanilla ice cream. Such a great treat!

Easy Blackberry Crisp Ingredients Needed:

Fresh or frozen blackberries

White granulated sugar


All-purpose flour

Quick-cooking or old-fashioned rolled oats

Brown sugar

Ground cinnamon

Ground ginger

I made this crisp with walnuts but it’s just as good with pecans. The spices and the berries really is a wonderful flavor. You can also top this with whipped cream.

If you have followed our site for any amount of time you know we love blackberries. They take me right back to my childhood because we had a lot in the summer and my Mother always made so many delicious desserts. Our deep dish blackberry cobbler is a great dessert too. It’s an old fashioned recipes with layers of cobbler and the longer it sets the better. It just soaks up all that delicious blackberry juice!
