Mixed Berry Crumble in a Jar


  • 1/2 C old-fashioned oats (gluten-free friends, use gluten-free oats)
  • 1/2 C almond meal
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar or Sucanat
  • 2 tablespoons butter (or vegan butter substitute), cold and chopped into small pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen berries
  • 1 t sugar (can use a small amount Stevia or Xylitol instead)
  • juice of half a lemon + 1/2 t lemon zest


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and spray two mason jars with nonstick spray. (I used the pint-sized jars, but if you use larger or small, adjust the recipe accordingly. This is one of those beautiful things where you don’t have to be super precisel; you can easily use ratios you prefer.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, almond meal, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt. Using a fork, smash in the butter until the butter is crumbled into the mixture. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the berries, sugar, lemon juice and zest.
  4. Layer 1/4 of the berry mixture into each jar, top with 1/4 of the crumble mixture. Add the rest of the berry mixture to each jar and top with the remaining crumble.
  5. (I can’t wait to try this with the Very Cherry Berry Blend from Trader Joe’s. We had frozen strawberries on hand, and they were rather lovely, but the pieces were large)
  6. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes, until browned, bubbly and glorious.
  7. Enjoy as is, or top with a scoop of ice cream and a sprig of fresh mint!
