Easy Strawberry Crisp – Sweet and juicy strawberries topped with a buttery brown sugar oat crumble. This delicious fruit crisp dessert comes together in minutes and it is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Friends, I have a major strawberry addiction. Like, I’m consuming 5 pounds of strawberries per week kinda thing. They are perfect this time of year. I’m trying to grow strawberries and it’s not going so well. I currently have one teeny tiny peanut-sized strawberry growing. Waaaah. Fingers crossed that my strawberries will grow, grow, grow. I’m not too optimistic.
In the meantime, I will keep picking up beautiful organic strawberries at the grocery store. Side note: I am at the store often. Too often. Every other day-ish. Any other food bloggers feel me on this?
So, what have I been doing with all the strawberries I keep buying? Aside from eating them as-is, I’ve also been making Strawberry Sangria, Strawberry Pie, and this super easy Strawberry Crisp. I’m in strawberry heaven over here!
This is the easiest fruit crisp ever. We toss the strawberries with sugar, orange juice and flour and place them in a baking dish. Our topping comes together in 2 minutes – oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon and melted butter get mixed up and crumbled over our berries. This beauty goes into the oven and almost immediately makes your house smell amazing! Once those strawberries are syrupy and bubbling and our topping is light brown we pull it from the oven.
Let this crisp cool off just slightly; you still want it a little warm when you serve it. And speaking of serving, don’t forget the vanilla ice cream. I say that the ice cream is optional in the recipe itself, but, let’s be real, when is ice cream ever “optional”? Get the ice cream, make this Strawberry Crisp, and watch it get devoured. Need help eating it? I’ll be right over.
