Oregon blackberries and Honeycrisp apples are combined and topped with a hazelnut oat topping creating the perfect combination of flavors for this healthier version of a fruit crisp dessert. A perfect dessert for anytime of the year and any type of gathering.



For the topping:

For the filling:

  • 5 cups frozen Oregon blackberries or Oregon Marion blackberries (aka Marionberries)
  • 3 cups chopped Honeycrisp apples


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the topping ingredients.
  3. In a 9×13″ baking dish combine the chopped apples and frozen blackberries.
  4. Add the topping in a layer over the blackberries and apples.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is beautifully crisp and golden.
  6. Eat…and serve with ice cream or heavy whipping cream (which obviously completely negates the ‘healthier’ aspect of this recipe but it’s so worth it!)
