Blackberry Peach Fruit Crisp with Oatmeal Cookie Crumble
This is my favorite fruit crisp. Loaded with fresh juicy tart blackberries, sweet summer peaches, and topped with a crumbly oatmeal brown sugar streusel – this is the fruit crisp you want to nosh on!
Part of the reason I love it is because I always have the ingredients in my cupboard. Just pick up some fresh juicy fruit, and you’re in fruity heaven!
Of course, I also love it because it’s so yummy. It’s perfect hot out of the oven topped with a big spoonful of vanilla ice cream. Great with some whipped cream as an after dinner treat. Divine as a breakfast start to the day topped with some vanilla yogurt. I’ve even eaten it straight out of the fridge, cold and yummy.
I’m pretty lucky, as the blackberries I get to use are all wild blackberries that I picked. These blackberries are a little tart, so I added the peaches and a little sugar for sweetness. Taste your fruit to see if it’s tart or sweet, and add sugar as needed.
For the brown sugar, light or dark will work – use whichever you have.

- 5 cups blackberries
- 1 large peach, peeled and chopped
- 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 1 tablespoon white sugar, optional
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Place the blackberries in a large bowl, and mash a few of them with a large spoon or fork. Stir in peaches and quick-cooking tapioca. Taste to see if the fruit needs any sugar. Set aside, and make the topping.
- Whisk the brown sugar and the flour together in a large mixing bowl. Add butter, cutting it in with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in oats and cinnamon, blending until clumps form.
- Place the fruit mixture in a 9x9-inch pan, and top with the crumble. Bake in a 350° F oven about 30-40 minutes, or until filling is bubbling and topping is brown and crisp. Let cool at least 15 minutes before digging in.
