We love blueberry treats in my house. Blueberry pie bars, blueberry chia muffins, and lemon blueberry pancakes make an appearance every year when blueberry season arrives.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh summer berries is this apple blueberry crisp recipe. The apple flavor complements the blueberries so well, and the topping gives it just the right amount of crunch.

This recipe can be served as dessert with ice cream or coconut whipped cream. And given the nourishing ingredient list, it could also be served as a fun breakfast or a healthy snack.

Apple Blueberry Crisp Tips

I like to peel the apples for the best texture in this recipe. But if you’d prefer to skip that step and leave the peels on the apples, that works fine, too.

To cut back on dishes, you can use the same big bowl to mix the fruit and the crisp topping. There’s no need to wash the bowl between these steps in the recipe.

Add the crisp topping to the fruit mixture by dolloping it on with a spoon. If you want a lot of topping, you can double the topping quantity in the recipe. 

Cook the apple blueberry crisp until the topping is brown and the apples are soft. You can serve this warm, or refrigerate it and serve it cold later. If you cut into the crisp while it’s still hot, it will be a bit runny. Let it cool if you want the fruit filling to gel together.

  1. Oh man! This looks onto of this world. I am going to have to pick up some blueberries to pair with my CSA apples and make this right away 🙂 Thanks for sharing and linking up…

  2. Yum! Tried this tonight with wonderful results. I didn’t have almond meal onhand so I used WW flour. Luckily none of my family have gluten issues so it wasn’t a big deal. Thank you for the great recipe!

  3. Apple crisp is one of those desserts I love, but only if someone else makes it! I’ve never had a gluten-free version, though, I guess I’ll have to make this myself. 🙂

    1. The only part I don’t like is peeling the apples, but once I get past that part it’s a breeze!

      1. I used to have one of those, but it broke. I should pick up another one since I find myself grumbling and complaining every time I peel apples.

      2. Many people don’t peel the apples. Slice them somewhat thin and you won’t notice. You will, however, get more nutrition and save time.

  4. I love a good crisp, and I have yet to try blueberry crisp. Looks like that’ll be next on my list!

    1. I love crisp too. I seem to always have a bag of blueberries in the freezer, and they come in handy when I get a hankering for this dessert.
