Even though I’m a food blogger, I don’t do a lot of baking. I’ll whip up a batch of muffins or cookies when the craving strikes but even then, I like to keep it simple. I don’t want to fuss with multiple bowls, too many measuring cups, and treating everything as an exact science. But this blueberry crisp? You really can’t mess it up. Plus, it’s made on the stovetop so you don’t even need to heat up the oven!

How to Make Blueberry Crisp on the Stovetop

Combine walnuts, flour, oats, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl.

Add the mixture to a non-stick skillet and cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet.

To make the filling, combine granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt in small bowl, then set aside. Add the blueberries to the skillet. Cover and cook over medium heat until the blueberries thaw and release their juice, about 7 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.

Stir in cornstarch mixture and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and distribute topping evenly over the filling.

Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on the side!

Tips for Perfect Stovetop Blueberry Crisp

This crisp will not fully “set,” and it’s best eaten in a bowl with a spoon. The blueberry mixture becomes deliciously soft and sweet, almost like jam. The crunchy topping is delicious with a scoop of ice cream on top. Once cooled, it’s best eaten immediately, but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge if needed.

You can make this recipe with fresh or frozen blueberries. I like using frozen blueberries because you don’t have to worry about berries being in season. Plus, they’re usually cheaper than fresh blueberries.
