Berry Crisp (Gluten-Free)

Jump to Recipe

Berry Crisp (Gluten-Free),  the comforting and delicious taste of berries, with a sweet crunchy topping with your favorite ice-cream is delicious all year round. Berries are not only tasty but they are also great for your health. They contain lots of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibers.

Berry Crisp (Gluten-Free)



I never get tired of making crisps, my Healthy Apple Crisp and this Berry Crisp (Gluten-Free) recipe, are the ultimate comfort dish, served with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream and they are such a treat loved by young and old

This recipe is also refined sugar-free. I used a maple syrup and coconut sugar. Blueberries and blackberries were on sale at my local health food store and I decided to stock up. I made this delicious Berry Crisp recipe and freeze the leftovers to make Blueberry Pineapple Bread and Blackberry Smoothie.

How To Make Berry Crisp (Gluten-Free)

To make this delicious summer berry crisp, I toss the berries with tapioca starch in a large bowl, stir in maple syrup, lemon, and vanilla. Then walnut is processed in a food processor, coconut flour, maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla, coriander, salt and coconut oil added for a delicious and crumbly topping.

The gluten-free berry crisp is then baked until sweet berries are bubbly. Delicious served warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
