I am a big fan of simple recipes. Like kale chips or chocolate coconut energy bars. Life is so full, that I don’t always have a huge amount of time to spend in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, eating wholesome, healthy food is a definite priority, but it doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious and nourishing.

Simple One-Pan Berry Crisp

My very favorite recipes are ones that I can make in a single pan and throw in the oven to do their thing. This healthy berry crisp checks both those boxes.

I don’t do anything at all with the berries. I measure out 4 cups (more or less) and dump them in a baking dish, then make the crisp topping.

Sometimes I use fresh berries and sometimes I use frozen. The kind varies with the season or what I have on hand in the freezer. I do like to do a few different kinds mixed together though. Whatever combination I end up with, it’s always delicious. I have noticed that if I’m using frozen berries, the crisp needs to cook for a little longer.

I’ve now used up the last of our frozen berries from last summer, but thankfully berry season isn’t too far away and the strawberry plants should produce well this year! I also like using them in this triple berry custard tart.

Crumbly Almond Flour Topping

I use almond flour to make this crisp topping. It has a nice nutty flavor that goes well with almost everything. I use my fingers to squish in butter or coconut oil, add some vanilla, and sometimes honey or stevia drops, sprinkle it over the berries, and toss it in the oven to cook.

This berry crisp is delicious all on its own, but I really like something cool and creamy with it. I usually whip up some whipped cream or serve it over ice cream and we have it for dessert. However, it’s such a healthy recipe that it also works really well over yogurt for breakfast!

Here’s a fun summertime idea — if you have a cast iron skillet and don’t want to heat up the house by using the oven, try making berry crisp on the grill!

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen berries (such as strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15 drops stevia extract (or honey or maple syrup to taste, optional)

Optional Toppings


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Lightly grease a 8×8 or larger baking dish.
  • Place the berries in the prepared baking dish. If using frozen berries, thaw and then drain the excess liquid first.
  • In a small bowl, combine almond flour, coconut oil or butter, and vanilla, and sweetener if using.
  • Use your hands or a fork to mix the ingredients until it makes a crumbly topping. You may need to adjust the almond flour up or down slightly, depending on the texture of the brand you use.
  • Sprinkle the topping evenly over the berries.
  • Place the baking dish into the oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven when done and drizzle with organic honey or maple syrup if desired.
  • Allow to partially cool, then top with whipped cream or ice cream to serve.
  • Enjoy!

    Loved this recipe! I used organic frozen mixed berries, but thawed them first and made sure I drained them in a colander, so they wouldn’t be too soupy. I used KerryGold butter in the topping and added a little organic maple syrup. Topped it off with homemade whipped cream. Yum! THANK YOU, Katie! ?

    This is NOT a cobbler. Cobbler has a biscuit topping. Why call it that? As a southerner, it is annoying.

    i made the blueberry /almond flour cobbler. frozen berries. followed recipe. the topping completely disappeared into the cobbler there was so much liquid. tapioca, cornstarch etc. needs to be added in order to prevent this. or maybe thaw berries and drain…. suggestions??

      Absolutely agree, I made this for Christmas dessert and it wasn’t even served, a huge disappointment. I took it home, scrapped off the topping and dumped the soupy berries in a pot and added some arrowroot and thickened it. The berries were too expensive to throw away.

    I tried this recipe with coconut oil and a little bit of coconut sugar mixed into the almond flour crumble, and it turned out better than I expected it to. Even though doesn’t it hold together well until it’s refrigerated for a few hours, it’s delicious both warm from the oven and chilled. Thank you for this recipe Mrs. Wells! The world needs more guilt-free healthy desserts like this one, and I’m glad I discovered your website.
