When it comes time to serve this dessert, add a dollop of whipped cream. And if you really want to spoil your friends and family, a scoop of vanilla ice cream also goes perfectly with a slice of warm crisp.
Please check the recipe card below for a detailed, printable ingredient list.
Blueberries - Use fresh blueberries when in season. You can use blueberry pie filling. But I strongly recommend using fresh blueberries.
Dry Ingredients - This recipe has just staple ingredients. Flour, brown and granulated sugar, and a touch of cinnamon and salt.
Nuts - Adding walnuts to the crumble adds taste and texture. If walnuts aren’t available, you can substitute them with quick-cooking oats or crushed pecans.
Butter - Be sure to use unsalted butter. I always recommend using only unsalted butter for recipes. Why? Because it gives complete control over the amount of salt you'll add to the recipe. Salt contents vary from brand to brand.
Variations and Additions
COCONUT. Adding shredded coconut adds both taste and texture.

Commonly Asked Questions
How to make Blueberry Crisp with frozen blueberries?
Although I recommend using fresh blueberries, you can also use frozen blueberries. Measure out about 24 ounces of frozen blueberries.
Place the frozen blueberries in a large colander and rinse with cold water. Drain and transfer onto a paper towel and pat dry. Follow the recipe as you would with fresh blueberries.
Can I use Blueberry Pie Filling?
Yes, you can! While I prefer fresh blueberries, there is nothing wrong with using a pie filling. If you want to make Blueberry Crisp, all you have on hand are cans of blueberry pie filling. Go ahead, use those. Two cans should be sufficient.
