[RECIPE] Fruit Crisp

Hello all,

I’ve learned to make a new dessert and it hits the spot so often. I’ve made it multiple times for different people and everyone loves it too.

I love fruit based desserts because they’re naturally sweet, are more nutrient dense than you’re average dessert, and a good source of fiber. Add in some whole grain and I am sold.

This one in particular is so versatile because you can really switch up the fruit. I’ve made it with strawberries and blueberries, just apples, and then a mixture of the three, the last one being my favorite. I think I want to try to add in peaches next time!

It’s also pretty easy to make it. I won’t say it’s super easy but it’s not too bad either. One a scale of one to ten with one being scooping ice cream out of a carton, it’s probably a 5.

Alright, on to the recipe. This makes about 5 servings (double for a 9″ pie plate like in the photo).


  • 3 cups of fruit of choice, chopped evenly (highly recommend trying apples, blueberries, and strawberries)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons white flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/2 stick softened butter*


Grease baking pan with butter or spray oil

  1. Mix fruit, 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoons white flour, and cinnamon together
  2. Spread in pan and set aside
  3. Mix remaining ingredients and mixed well together, use hands
  4. Refrigerate until butter hardens
  5. Remove from fridge and poke with fork to create crumbs
  6. Sprinkle crumbs over fruits
  7. Bake in preheated oven (350F) for about 45 minutes until house smells amazing, fruit filling bubbles and crumb browns.
  8. Wow everyone with delicious dessert!

Enjoy my friends.

*You can use cold hard butter and a pastry blender or knives to work butter into crumb but I find the knives frustrating and difficult and I don’t have a pastry blender.
