Berry Breakfast Crisp

  • Author: Joscelyn Abreu
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


Fresh berries are lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, topped with a homemade granola, and then baked until golden. A deliciously wholesome breakfast!



Fruit Filling:

  • 5 heaping cups of your favorite berries, or other fruit, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, more or less may be needed depending on the sweetness of your fruit (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds for fresh berries or 2 tablespoons chia seeds for frozen berries

Granola Topping:

  • 1 cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, olive oil or butter will work also
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, or your preferred sweetener to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a 2-3 quart baking dish, stir together the fruit, maple syrup, and chia seeds. I find that fresh berries don’t produce as much liquid as frozen berries, which is why the amount of chia seeds called for differs. Set aside while you make the topping.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine oats, nuts, coconut, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt together. Stir in the maple syrup and oil until mixture is thoroughly combined. Sprinkle on top of the fruit filling and bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes, until filling is hot and granola topping is golden brown. Serves 4-6.
