5-Ingredient Blackberry Crumble

This recipe for a Blackberry Crumble is incredibly easy to make and delicious for a healthy(er) alternative to traditional dessert.  Using only five ingredients, this recipe was perfect for two on a weekday night, with a little bit left over for a tasty snack the next day.

Anyone else despise when blogs offer a 12 hour update prior to the recipe? Let’s jump right in to the recipe, chock full of random ingredients I scrounged from our fridge just before heading out of town. It was super quick to make and we both loved every bite.

Blackberry Crumble

Prep Time: 5 minutes; Bake Time: 25 minutes; Total Time: 30 minutes

Serves 2 (with some leftovers)


  • 2.5 cups blackberries
  • 2 cups granola (I picked out one with dried berries previously mixed in)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (a little bit under that, but right around that amount)
  • 1/4 tablespoon granulated salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Directions (high altitude)

  1. Pre-heat oven to bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.  While I mixed everything together at the same time, it may be better achieved by mixing the granola and butter together first prior to adding in the rest of the ingredients.  Ultimately, you want the granola and butter to form large clumps and all ingredients to be evenly distributed.  Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Bake for 20 minutes or until berries are softened and the granola has a light brown color along the perimeter.  Served best warm.

We immediately tossed any leftovers into an air tight container in the fridge and enjoyed cold the following day with a little extra brown sugar tossed on top.  Absolutely delicious and the perfect second day snack.
