The best vegan blackberry crumble made with sweet, juicy blackberries and a simple but delicious oat crumble. Enjoy during the late summer and early fall when fresh blackberries are in season and at their sweetest!



For the Blackberry Filling: 

  • 4 cups fresh blackberries (300 g) 
  • 1.5 tbsp cornstarch (15 g)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (15 g) 
  • 1 tsp vanilla, optional (5 mL) 
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (30 mL)

For the Crumble Topping: 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together blueberries, cornstarch, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice. Pour the filling into a 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
  3. In a separate bowl use a fork to mix together the oats, flour, salt, maple syrup and coconut oil to form a crumbly topping. 
  4. Evenly distribute the crumble topping over the blackberries and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the topping is golden brown.


If using frozen berries, double the amount of cornstarch in the filling.
