Blackberries love our property. Dave shovels new blackberry starts out of fence lines, our garden and fields every year. It’s quite a project keeping these prickly vines in check.
Fortunately we love these prickly fruits. Blackberries off the vine are a fantastic seasonal treat. Blackberries are also the healthiest of all berries. The rule of thumb is the darker your berry the healthier it is.
Blackberries are darker even than blueberries and chock full of antioxidants and other nutrients. We have mountains of blackberry vines that we keep to pick from.

Making this recipe an easy healthy dessert:
This recipe is pretty good for you. Blackberries are amazingly great for your health. Apples are also very nutritious. However, apples do have a lot of natural sugars which increase the carbs.
NOTE: If you are a low carb person or diabetic this recipe may be too high in carbs for you even sugar free due to the apples.
This vegan blackberry crisp with apples is so good. Enjoy this healthy vegan dessert. That means it’s also dairy free for our lactose intolerant friends.
Using a sugar substitute helps make this into a really healthy dessert recipe. Cane sugars are not good for us. At all. So to keep your sugars in this dessert lower. Use your favorite sugar substitute. I have a few linked in the recipe card for you if you need some ideas.
FOR GLUTEN FREE: Use your favorite gluten free flour or thickener for the crisp. I recommend cornstarch, arrowroot or tapioca flour.
Blackberry Apple Crisp Recipe:
- The Apple Blackberry Crisp oats I used are just what I had on hand. In this case I used steel cut oats. Use regular oats if you prefer.
- I am using coconut oil for a healthy fat. Using coconut or avocado oil.
- You may use fresh blackberries or frozen for this easy recipe. If you use frozen measure them BEFORE they completely defrost. Also thawed frozen berries have a lot of juice and will require more thickener.
- It’s done when the juices bubble and run a bit over the edges. Put a baking pan under the crisp to keep your oven clean.
