Steps of making triple berry crumble

Frozen fruit is best because it is frozen when it is at peak freshness. It has tons more flavor and nutrients.

Plus, frozen organic fruit is much cheaper than fresh. Win win!

Since the berries are getting baked, it is perfect to use frozen berries. They’re going to get all soft and mushy anyway.

Even better? You can cook it with the berries frozen! No need to thaw them. You can have this frozen berry crumble prepped and in the oven in less than 10 minutes. Love that!

To thicken the berries I add in some flour, along with a little sugar for added sweetness and lemon zest for added brightness.

The real star is the oat crumble topping. Crunchy and toasty oatmeal mixed with butter , flour and sugar. It is amazing.

  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries* NOT thawed (about 24 ounces frozen fruit)
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Oat Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour

  • In a separate mixing bowl, make the oat crumble by combining all ingredients, then use your fingers to pinch the butter and incorporate with the dry ingredients. Keep pinching and tossing together with your hands until evenly combined. You will be left with many pea sized pieces of butter mixed in with the oat mixture. Set aside.

Recipe Notes

Frozen Berries: My favorite frozen berries to use are a combination of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. But you could use just 1 berry, or any combination of other berries. For larger fruit/berries like strawberries, cherries, mango, etc I will pulse the frozen fruit in the food processor a few times so the chunks are more bite size.
Fresh Berries: This same recipe also works for fresh fruit too! Just substitute the same amount of fresh berries for frozen. No other substitutions or change in baking time are needed.
Make Ahead: You can make this up to step 4, then cover tightly and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze up to 6 months. Bake it thawed or fully frozen until golden and bubbling, about 1 hour.
Leftovers: Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.
