A 5-ingredient mixed berry crumble that uses fresh or frozen berries, is vegan, gluten-free, and SO easy to make. You'll never guess the crumble topping!
Whenever summer hits, my dessert cravings go from dark chocolate decadence to light and fruity. My all-time favorite dessert is a fruit crisp! My healthy peach crisp was a stand out last year, but today's mixed berry crumble might take that top slot!
It's simple to make, it's packed with three types of berries, it uses just 5 simple ingredients and it can be made all year round!
This one is also amazing because it's healthy enough for breakfast. We like to have it for dessert one night and eat the leftovers the next day. So so good!
Mixed Berry Crumble with 5 ingredients!
For me, the key to a classic crisp is two things: saucy fruit and crispy topping. I'm taking some shortcuts with this recipe which makes it a bit healthier, but also even better!
As I said we're using just 5 simple ingredients:
- frozen mixed berries: which means you can make it all year long
- quinoa flour: to help thicken the berry juices a touch
- maple syrup: to cut down on the slight tang of the berries
- lemon juice: to brighten everything up
- granola: for our crunchy topping
And that's it!
How to Make This Easy Berry Crumble
This crumble will – no joke – take you about 5 minutes to make. You'll start by mixing up your berries with your flour, syrup and lemon juice. Then just spread them into a baking dish (I love this white one) or some little ramekins.
Final step: put on your granola and bake away!
You'll know it's done once the berries are bubbling and the granola is golden brown. It takes no more than 30 – 40 minutes!

This berry crumble is also…
- really light so you don't feel overly full afterward

- easy to make for a crowd
- refined sugar-free
I can honestly say, this is the ULTIMATE summer dessert!
What to Serve with Berry Crumble
Whether you're craving this for breakfast or dessert, there are so many fun ways to top it!
For dessert: I'd do a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream, a pinch more granola and some fresh berries on top.
For breakfast: I'd do a dollop of vegan yogurt, a drizzle of almond butter, a splash of almond milk and some cacao nibs
