Blueberry Coconut Crisp Recipe

I know it isn’t technically summer yet, but once Memorial Day happens, I consider it summer. I never understood and still don’t understand why some schools make the kids go back to class after Memorial Day. It should be summer vacation! I always hated going back and I don’t remember doing anything productive after Memorial Day. We were just killing time until school was out for the summer. If you are still in school, I am sorry. Hang in there.

Luckily, Caleb is out of preschool for the summer. They got the memo about summer starting after Memorial Day…or maybe they didn’t want to deal with 3-year olds anymore:) It’s an exhausting job. Either way, it is summer vacation at our house and we are getting the summer party started with Blueberry Coconut Crisp.

Blueberry Crisp Recipe

Blueberries have always been Caleb’s favorite fruit and it looks like Maxwell is following in his brother’s footsteps. He loves blueberries too. I buy the biggest containers I can find and the boys devour them. I bought a big container of blueberries and hid them on the top shelf of the fridge so the boys couldn’t find them. These blueberries were for the crisp!

Look at those plump and juicy berries! They were the perfect base for my crisp.

For the topping, I combined Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, almond meal, coconut, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and melted coconut oil.

I sprinkled the oat mixture over the blueberries and baked until bubbly. This crisp is almost too easy to make!

When the crisp came out of the oven, I ate a few bites right from the pan, because who can resist warm blueberry crisp? Not me! The blueberries burst into my mouth and the coconut oat topping was perfection. I saved the rest of the crisp for family dessert night and my boys were happy about that! We enjoyed our Blueberry Coconut Crisp outside with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Hellooooo summer!

If you are ready for summer to start, make Blueberry Coconut Crisp. It is the perfect dessert to kick off summer! And just so you know, this Blueberry Coconut Crisp is also great for breakfast. Whole grain oats and fruit equals a breakfast of champions! I like to top it with yogurt if I am eating it for breakfast. This crisp is great anytime of the day! Enjoy!

  1. Looks perfect! It is totally summer….despite what the calendar officially says 🙂 Yayy for school ending!

  2. This looks so beautiful! Can I ask about the coconut oil? I’ve never cooked with it, and was wondering, do you measure out the 1/3 cup and THEN melt it, or is that measured after you melt it? Sorry if this is a dumb question! 🙂

    Love your blog!!

  3. This looks delicious! I love the blueberry and coconut combo. I’m assuming you add the coconut with the oats and flour to make the crisp topping? Thanks 🙂

  4. This looks perfect for summer! This is totally blueberry season, and crisps are one of my favorite desserts. Memorial Weekend is totally the unofficial start of summer as all pools become open then 🙂 I actually have some almond meal and coconut laying around that I wasn’t sure what to do with….so now I know! Definitely need to run out and grab some blueberries 😀

  5. Unfortunatly, i can’t have oats. Is there a gluten free way to add some crunch to this otherwise wonderful recipe?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    1. Hi. Please see my reply to you at the bottom of the Comments. I didn’t realize I could reply to you directly. If offer some gluten free oat products.

  8. Lovely Maria…Could you please continue to post recipes like this fabulous crisp? As far as ingredients go, that is…We are trying to eat cleaner foods with healthy fats, no dairy, white flour, etc and this is perfect! I’m a foodie so if you find it to be delicious- i can trust that it is!!! Love your site!

  9. I mix 1/4 cup honey with the coconut oil instead of sugar and it’s delicious!!! My entire family loved it. Thanks!

  10. I made this for dessert for family. Very easy to put together. Berries were delicious and a bit tart…while the crumble was good, I felt like the ratio of crumble to berries was off. It seemed like it could have used double the amount of crumble. I also think the berries were very ‘loose’ with the amount of juice they produced during the baking process…some type of thickener (the addition of some flour?) It doesn’t seem like many reviews contain actual reviews from recipes being made! I wanted to leave a review that actually gave an opinion based on having actually made it. Hope this helps someone interested in that info.

  11. The topping for this was AMAZING!! The berries aren’t super sweet and mine did get pretty liquidity. I’m fine with less sugar but if you like sweet then I would add some to the berry part. Same with a thickener. It was fine without but I think most people would prefer a little thicker consistency-maybe add a TB if cornstarch?

  12. Yummy! Just made this tonight with some extra blueberries so my nut-free, GF, roommate could enjoy it too (subbed GF flour). It was super delicious! We served it with banana ice cream, so it was a healthy treat 🙂

  13. For RANDI – In general, oats are considered to be gluten free and any gluten present would be picked up in the manufacturing process from cross-contamination from other products with gluten. If you want to be extra sure your Old Fashioned Oats are gluten free, Quaker now makes Gluten Free Old Fashioned Oats in a Bag . If you can’t find them near you, try online. Their other new GF oat products are GF Steel Cut Oats in a Bag, GF Quick 1-Minute Oats in a Bag, GF Instant Oatmeal ‘Original’ and GF Instant Oatmeal ‘Maple Brown Sugar’. Note Sarah Smith’s comment where she thought the recipe would be OK for her GF boyfriend, just as written. Good luck!
