Summer Strawberry Crumble

It’s the season of strawberries and I, for one, am taking full advantage.

Strawberry Crumble

After a recent trip to R & C Dairy and Farmstead,  B and I came home with 6 pounds of freshly picked berries. When one picks 6 pounds of strawberries, one quickly needs to figure out what to do with such a goldmine, as they perish somewhat quickly. While we ate many, many berries as is, we also made turned a few of these gems into crumbles. 

Fresh picked berries

My recipe is a riff on The Kitchn’s brilliant post How to Make A Fruit Crumble with Any Kind of Fruit.  I upgraded the nutrition by using almond flour v. white flour and added oats for crumble authenticity. Because of my love affair with vanilla, I added it, too and kicked it up with lots of cinnamon.  

Pre baked crumble


This recipe has graced 3 tables in the last 2 weeks-two versions of the strawberry and one using blueberries as the fruit. I must say that while initially the blueberry was my fave, my heart truly belongs to the strawberry version. The best part of this recipe? Any fruit can be used, as The Kitchn post indicates.

Make this recipe. You won’t be sorry-I promise. And when you make it, come back here and tell me which fruit you used. I want to know.

    Having picked nearly ten pounds of berries late last week, I am ecstatic to find a new twist on crumble that usually finds itself featuring apples or stone fruits in our house. And because I make nut and seed milks on a regular basis, we have a variety of flours hanging out in the fridge for baking. Looking forward to having this on the dessert menu very soon… and when the strawberries are gone, my blueberry bush is gradually blue-ing…! Thanks, Robin.

    I’ve just started to play around with almond flour, so I’m happy I came across your recipe. We are huge crisp and crumble fans around my house, so I’d love to give yours a try .. especially that topping! We’re not in berry season yet here in New England, but I can’t wait!

    Crumbles are one of my favourite desserts! Kind of feels like you’re eating a very fruity oatmeal, which I love. I’m so excited for Ontario strawberries to come back in season!

    This crumble looks SO heavenly! Cannot wait to try. I don’t have freshly picked berries (yet!) so am very envious of your beautiful local berries.
