Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Vegan Berry Crisp. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

I recommend using frozen berries for this recipe, it’s much more cost efficient but just as amazing tasting. If you don’t want to use frozen berries, fresh will work the same!

I personally like to add in a touch of jam or jelly which not only adds a touch of sweetness, but also adds to the overall texture of the dessert. Spread the Love is my favorite brand of clean jelly!

Coconut sugar is what I used for the sweetener, however, cane sugar, brown sugar or even maple syrup, agave or date syrup will work. Alternatively, monk fruit sweetener or honey will work as well.

The crisp is made with a blend of oat flour and oats.

Adding in the ground flax is optional, however, I love that it adds a bit of fiber.

You can use any type of oil that you prefer such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, or even avocado oil.

Maple syrup is an all natural sweetener that I love to use in my recipes, it works great at adding a touch of sweetness to the crisp. Alternatively, you can use honey, agave or date syrup.

This berry crisp is so easy to make and is so tasty – not overly sweet, perfect balance of sweetness and still being able to enjoy the natural taste of the berries. The crisp topping is soo good, I usually make extra so there’s tons of it on top!
