Made with blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, this gluten-free berry crisp is topped with a cinnamon-spiced oat and walnut topping.
Berry season is getting closer and closer by the week and I couldn’t be more excited! We take our blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries quite seriously around here and if you’ve ever tasted a freshly picked Michigan berry you’ll know why.
Every summer we pick pounds and pounds of local berries to freeze for later in the year to use in smoothies, muffins, pies, and more. Inevitably, one of the first desserts we make with our freshly picked berries is a crisp.
Topped with a cinnamon-scented oat mixture and plenty of toasted walnuts, each bite is the perfect combination of sweet, tart, and crunchy deliciousness. For added nutty flavor and texture, I made a gluten-free version using Bob’s Red Mill almond meal instead of all-purpose flour.
The result? Everything you love about berry crisp with the addition of a subtle nutty, toasty flavor from the almond meal. Think of it as berry crisp to the next level. Looking for other almond flour recipes? Try my almond flour blueberry muffins! They are a big hit as well.

SO SO good!
Swapped walnuts for sliced almonds and added a tablespoon of coconut sugar with the berries. Just the perfect amount of sweetness and crunch. Also really good for breakfast! LOVE!! Thank you!
What a great idea Susan to add almonds! So glad you enjoyed!
While I have tried quite a few of your recipes with success we did not care for the walnuts and overall lack of sweetness.
Sorry you didnt enjoy the walnuts or lack of sweetness. You can always swap for pecans or omit the nuts and add more sugar. :)
Made this for a friend’s birthday. Was a big hit. Delicious. Right amount of topping for the berries. Will make again.
Oh good I’m so glad!!
What do you suggest for adapting this recipe to make it with frozen berries?
No need to adapt!
Yummy dish. Can’t wait to try it.
Anything that’s gluten-free is a must-try for me! This sounds amazing!
I could definitely go for a bowl of this deliciousness!
This is my kind of dessert (or breakfast?)! Since you used olive oil, I bet this would be amazing with a little basil in the topping or as a garnish. Or maybe some basil ice cream. YUM!!! LOVE it Lizzy.
Dude. I LOVE the basil idea!!!!
We love crisps around here, so we’ll definitely be trying this one out this summer. I can’t wait to go berry picking with my little one – so much fun!
I know- I am counting down the weeks to berry season!
We just discovered a blueberry patch nearby, need to visit!! This is the dessert of my dreams!
Oh my gosh blueberry picking is probably my favorite. Its for sure the easiest!!! And you can freeze them without having to pit them :)
My dad just revealed to me the other day that he LOVES berry pie. I had no idea. I’m going to have to spring this crisp on him too.
No way really? Berry is Rich’s favorite too. Pie, crisp, you name it. I like it because you don’t have to peel anything. ;)
I cannot resist a fresh berry crisp, and you just got me all excited to pick fresh berries this summer! That almond meal sounds interesting to me, will check it out.
Oh man summer is right around the corner my friend!!!! We are so close!

Kids LOVE picking berries!! It’s so fun!
I’ve actually been eating ALL THE BERRIES lately because pregnancy cravings. This crisp would rock my world so hard.
Oh my gosh I ate so many berries when I was pregnant too!!! I hope that babe makes her appearance soon!
Definitely trying this soon! Pinning for later :)
I make a lot of apple crisps and now I’m wondering why I never made berry crisp? I’m so gonna try this!
I go in waves but I find berry crisps are even easier because you don’t have to peel or slice anything!
Aww I love those photos of your little man picking berries!
Your daughter is going to love going picking this summer!!
One of these days I want to come to MI to pick all the berries and then gobble them up! These crisp looks killer!
Umm seriously. How about next month? :) xoxo
I have always wanted to go blueberry picking, but I’ve never done it! I think this will be the year though :) This berry crisp sounds incredible, and I love that you used almond meal!
