This quick and simple blueberry crisp recipe is a great last minute dessert option.
I realize that picking a favourite fruit may feel a little bit like picking a favourite child (no? just me?), but blueberries definitely snag a top spot in my heart. This is especially true when eaten in the form of a blueberry crisp. Ok, so I may be a little bias with my blueberry love since the Blueberry Capital of Canada is only a few hours away from my hometown, but whatever – they’re delicious all the same.
Crisps of any sort make for a great last minute dessert option considering they’re simple enough to assemble and delicious when served warm (bonus points if topped with ice cream). With very little prep or cooldown time, this dessert can be served to guests within an hour from start to finish.
I personally love quick and easy desserts. They’re a win in my home since I’m perpetually last minute when it comes to planning meals (food blogger problems). I recommend throwing this blueberry crisp recipe together prior to serving your main dish then baking it while your guests eat. This way the dessert will be ready to serve (and still warm) after the meal.
In the event that you don’t have fresh blueberries on hand, don’t worry: this blueberry crisp recipe can be made with frozen blueberries without compromising flavour (which is actually what I did on this particular occasion). I also decided to divide the recipe into individual portions, however this recipe can be made in one 8″ baking dish as well.
