This vegan berry crumble is made with oats and whole wheat flour for a healthier take on dessert. You can use fresh or frozen berries, so this recipe is tasty no matter the season!


  • 1 ½ cups oats
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 ⅓ cup blackberries or blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons of blackberry preserves or jam
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper, leaving a couple of inches of overhang on two sides.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, pastry flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Mix in the coconut oil until well combined. The mixture should be crumbly but the coconut oil should be evenly distributed.
  5. Press 2 cups of the oat mixture into the bottom of the parchment lined pan. Save the rest of the oat mixture for the topping.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the berries, fruit preserves and cornstarch.
  8. Remove the baked crust from the oven and spread the fruit mixture evenly on top.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture.
  10. Bake for another 30-35 minutes until slightly browned on top.
  11. Let cool for 5 minutes then remove from the pan and let cool on a wire rack.
  12. Let cool completely before cutting, about 1 hour.
  13. Slice into 12 bars.
