Given that’s it’s summertime and optimal berry-picking time, I naturally had to share a yummy, easy, preservative-free berry recipe with you: my Low-Sugar Healthy Berry Crumble! The juicy, double-berry base is topped with a buttery golden streusel-like topping, with added crunch from some heart-healthy oats! Perfect hot with ice cream or just by itself, you can make it in 10 minutes and then pop it in the oven to bake. Easy-peasy, berry squeezy!
You can use any mixture of berries that you want in this Low-Sugar Healthy Berry Crumble, as long as it amounts to two cups. I went berry picking recently with my toddler daughter, and gathered service berries (aka june berries) and mulberries from trees around our neighbourhood so those are the berries I used. I’ve also made it with a mixture of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, and that was equally delicious! There is only a teeny bit of sugar in the crumble topping, as the berries are sweet enough, so although the recipe is quite healthy, you’d never know it from the deliciously sweet taste!
- 2 c. mixed berries, fresh or frozen
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/2 c. oats
- 1/2 c. butter softened
- 1/4 c. sugar
- pinch of salt
- pinch of cinnamon
- Dump the berries into a greased baking tin.
- Mix the remaining ingredients (flour, oats, butter, and cinnamon) into a crumbly mixture and sprinkle over the top of the fruit.
- Bake in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 minutes or until golden on top. Enjoy!
While I used butter to make this, you could easily veganize it by using margarine. Plant-based all the way, baby!

Technically, this is more of a crisp than a crumble, but eh, I prefer the way Berry Crumble trips off the tongue. If you’re not a berry fan, no worries I got you; try my award-winning recipe for my super-easy (and incidentally also low-sugar) Harvest Apple Crumble!
