This single serving blackberry crisp is so tasty, warm and comforting. And you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make!
I would consider this a treat/ dessert, but it does have some redeeming healthy-ish qualities. It does contain some sugar, but most of the flavor comes from delicious sweet-and-tart blackberries. Two and a half cups of the blackberries, plus two tablespoons of sugar and a little flour make up the fruit part of this dish.
I guess I am showing a little bit of local pride here, since blackberries are the state of Alabama’s official state fruit. Did you know there even was such a thing? Well, you are welcome for that bit of useless trivia. 🙂
The topping for the crisp is a mixture of brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, salt and walnuts. Two tablespoons of butter (not pictured) ties it all together.
Here is a tip: I find that using clean hands to mix in the butter works best. Why? The warmth from my hands softens the butter, and it combines into the rest of the ingredients better. I just kind of keep squeezing the butter chunks until the topping resembles large crumb-y chunks.
Next, I spoon the blackberry mixture into some little ramekins(<- Amazon affiliate links), and then I just top it with the crumble mixture.
