Apple Blackberry Crisp

gluten free apple blackberry crisp

There’s nothing like baked fruit desserts in summer.  With seasonal, fresh, luscious ingredients, this gluten free Apple Blackberry Crisp is the perfect healthy and scrumptious, warm weather delight.  When finished off with a high protein almond flour topping, baked treats such as this are superfood in the form of dessert.  Now what’s better than that?

Our summer started last Thursday when the boys finished school, and we are having an excellent time thus far.  Our house has been the setting for lots of sleep overs, lunches, snacks and water balloon fights for the boys and all of their friends.

Today we’ve been deeply involved in preparing for the Mapleton Hill Rummage Sale which takes place this weekend.  The boys plan to have an organic lemonade stand where they will sell high protein brownies, cookies and other treats, Saturday morning.  Who knows, they might even be selling Apple Blackberry Crisp.

  1. I love any dessert with baked apples and a crunchy topping. I’ll be making this with blueberries (no blackberries on hand) tonight!

  2. Pat @ Elegantly, Gluten-Free @ elegantlyglutenfree.com

    I love apple crisp and blackberry crisp, so I think this looks wonderful!

  3. This will be perfect for the last of the blackberries I picked on my camping trip last summer. Time to clear the freezer for this summer’s bounty!

    Thanks, Elana!
    Pat

  4. I bet I could bake this on the grill! It’s too hot to bake in the house right now.

    Looks great. When I first saw the headline I thought this was about electronic devices!

  6. Mmmm, this sounds amazing, I love a good crisp any time of year!

    Apple blackberry does sound like a smart phone! =) Only this time, it’s a smart dessert! Healthy and perfect for a summer dinner party. I love crisps and you can mix and match the fruit, which makes is so versatile. Good one, Elana!

  8. Yummy!!! That sounds sooooo good, I can’t wait to try it out… I guess I’ll be getting apples and blackberries today ;)

    Hi :) I am from Norway and I avoid milk, gluten, sugar etc from my diet. I tried your vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting, and it was so good! Thank you! I was so trilled to find a frosting without milk/butter/etc. I don´t use agave (because of the damage it does to the liver), but I replaced it with ricemilk, xylitol and some stevia. Worked very well! They looked nice too, but I couldn´t find my camera… Arghh :( ;)

    I love your blog, and I just ordered your almond flour cookbook in iHerb.com :)

    Love from Norway!

  10. I know I’ve been working too hard because my first thought was “won’t RIM sue Steve Jobs?”

    But seriously, it looks so tasty.

  11. Tori (Fresh Fruition) @ freshfruition.com

    Oh my, that looks so good! I love fruit pies and crisps- except apple. For some reason cooked apples make my mouth tickle!

  12. Becky

    Mmmmmm….can’t wait to try!

  13. Lynn Krukowski @ fireagateartstudio.com

    I bet this would be good with some fresh rhubarb in it too. I wonder how much agave I would need to add to help the rhubarb not be too tart?
    I imagine the apple would mellow out the tartness though.
    Thanks for the great inspiring ideas.

  14. Miriam @ Sometimes I Veg @ sometimesiveg.com

    It looks fantastic. I’ll have to put this on my roster to eat at the end of summer when blackberries and apples are both available locally (such as in my yard)

  15. Becca

    I made this last night for girl’s night and we all loved it so much! It was easy to make and delicious. I never quite feel so guilty after eating your desserts because they do contain some healthy food items. Thanks for making my baking life a little bit enjoyable. I typically don’t enjoy baking because it’s not healthy food, but you are changing that in many ways. :) We added a bit of cool whip to the dessert and that tasted great too!

  16. Looks Lovely Elana, and perfect for Summer! :)

  17. I made this with blueberries and rhubarb…because I’m always looking for a good recipe using rhubarb this time of year. Thanks! It was yummy.

  18. Jen @ keepitsimplefoods @ keepitsimplefoods.com

    Always love a good fruit crisp! I just adore the blackberry, apple combo!

  19. Thanks for the recipe, Elana! I’m going to try it this weekend. I plan to substitute homemade pecan flour for the almond flour. I think it could work if I cut down the oil in the recipe. Raw almonds are so expensive and hard to find, but pecans are abundant here in Texas, so I’ve been itching to try this substitution. This will be the perfect “guinea pig” recipe!

    Another goody, thank you, I appreciate all the great recipes you give out.

  21. Sarah D.

    Finally made this after having it on my mind for a while, and while it was delicious, it never crisped at all – was it supposed to? The topping browned perfectly even with the foil on top.

  22. that looks great, i just made a raspberry and peach cobbler. Cant wait to try this. thanks for the recipe;)

  23. Jenn Irwin @ gfconnoisseur.com

    This was fantastic!! It complimented our 4th of July dinner perfectly!

    Thanks Elana for another awesome recipe. I made this tonight and it was delicious! I had never had the combo of apples and blackberries before but I am sold. I served it on top of some coconut milk ice cream. So yummy

  25. Sequoia

    Hi there, I have a question about some of these desserts…I am cooking for someone who we think is allergic to wheat and is trying to avoid gluten, BUT is definitely allergic to almonds…So, the almond flour doesnt work for him. I have tried making flour out of hazelnuts, but the flour isnt fine enough in my food processor. Any suggestions??
    Thank you!

  26. Rebecca

    Is there any way to make this nut-free (such as swapping coconut flour for almond flour)? I have a bunch of apples and blackberries that need using, but I can’t eat nuts. Thanks!!!

    i just joined Elanas Pantry because i became interested in using almond flour for my 1200 calories a day diet-i made this crisp and it was delicious-but i have a problem-i am using My Fitness Pal for my food diary-i see that other Elanas Pantry recipes are in their data base-but when i try to enter this wonderful one it doesnt show up at all-how do i get it listed with My Fitness Pal?? i really DO want to make it again
