Berry Balsamic Crisp


Remember I mentioned my purchases at LeRoux Kitchen? One of them was Wild Blueberry Balsamic. I tried a sample in the store and immediately grabbed a bottle to buy. It’s so delicious I can’t stop thinking of dishes I can use it in.

I decided for the Wild Blueberry Balsamic’s inaugural use I would make a berry crisp for two one. I did share, I swear. But trust me, you will not want to. And I also ate 1/2 before dinner and the other 1/2 after. I think it would make a perfect breakfast too, no?

{Berry Balsamic Crisp}


  • 1/2 c. frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 c. frozen strawberries
  • 1 t. arrowroot powder (or corn-starch)
  • 2 T. old-fashioned oats
  • 2 T. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 T. dark brown sugar
  • 1 T. maple syrup
  • 1/4 t, cinnamon
  • 2 T. butter, divided
  • 1 t. Wild Blueberry Balsamic (or regular)
  • 1/4 t. vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the berries in a bowl and cover with arrowroot powder, toss until coated and absorbed. Add balsamic and maple syrup to berries.

In another bowl, mix together oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and 1 T. melted butter.

Put berry mixture in small oven-safe dish. Sprinkle oat-flour mixture on top of berries until evenly covered. Cut other T of butter into little pieces and sprinkle on topping (optional).

Bake for ~25 minutes.

  1. Ooh I love how the blueberry balsamic inspired this. I have a bottle of chocolate balsamic and have been trying to figure out what to use it in!

    • We have the chocolate balsamic too! I just picked up a bottle of coconut balsamic from Boston Olive Oil and I’ve been trying to come up with something using both. I need ideas!

  2. *whimper* Things I love: crumbles/crisps in winter, and balsamic with berries. I’ve only tried it with straberries before – I must try this soon!

  3. I bought my mom some blueberry balsamic at the King Arthur Flour shop. I wonder if it was the same brand?! This berry crisp looks delicious!
