David bought some blackberries from the farmers’ market this past weekend. He decided he was going to make blackberry crisp. You know David, he doesn’t have a tooth in his head that isn’t a sweet tooth.  

Do you like blackberries?

I don’t, but David loves blackberries. It’s totally a mouthfeel kind of thing for me. I don’t like gnawing on all those little seeds that don’t seem to go away. He thinks I’m crazy and you will probably side with him on this one and end up making this recipe.

According to David, this blackberry crisp is tart and tangy, topped with rolled oats, brown sugar, pecans, with the warmth of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. 

This isn’t the only crisp that David makes. He also loves apple crisp and bakes that in the fall when the mountain apples are coming off. 

We hope you enjoy this blackberry crisp!

  • Yum! Wish my B.O.B. Bob would make me a dessert like this…won’t ever happen! He’ll go buy me dessert though, so I guess that’s something!

  • I’ve enjoyed following your blog and look forward to your comments on mine. I just wanted to let you know that I have moved to faithhopeloveandlucksurvivedespiteawhiskeredaccomplice.com, and I hope that you’ll continue to follow Brenna and I there.

  • While looking for a new blackberry pie recipe, I stumbled across your blog. I thought the idea of a crisp sounded good since I like a crunchy element too. Don’t know why I never thought of this myself. I tried the recipe and it was delicious, especially with a little vanilla ice cream on top. Just wanted to thank you for the great recipe. I’m looking forward to checking out some of your older posts for more.

    • Carol, I have several crisp recipes now. I have done apple, strawberry rhubarb and a blueberry also. I’m so glad you liked the recipe. Thank you so much for your comment! I love to hear what people think 🙂

  • What did you bake this in? The instructions never say to transfer the ingredients out of the bowl and I doubt you baked it in the bowl! lol Did you use an 8X8 glass pan?

  • 5 stars
    Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe
    We live in Sweden and in Greece
    At this time we are in Sweden and went out to pick blackberries (not the easiest sport 😀)
    We found your recipe and followed all the steps except the nuts (didn’t have any)
    To make a long story short…we can’t stop eating it😂

  • Hi! I tried this recipe. Seems like 1.5 cups of blackberries are not enough (I actually put in a little more). Using an 8×8 baking dish, there is only a very thin layer of berries and a much thicker layer of topping . It was tasty though. I will probably use it as an icecream topping v putting icecream over the top.

  • When I mix the “filling” I had berries with a lot of sugar, flour and brown sugar left. It hardly covered the bottom of the pan. It told me to pour the topping over the “filling”. Nothing in the pan is wet. I’m going to go ahead and bake it and see what happens.
