A touch of honey heightens the sweet juiciness of blackberries in this simple crisp. Like all crisps, this one is delicious with a scoop of ice cream or some softly whipped cream.

Note: The tapioca thickens the blackberry mixture a bit, feel free to omit it if you like.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes


  • 6 cups blackberries
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp quick-cooking or instant tapioca (optional)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces


  1. Preheat over to 350°F. In a 2-quart baking dish combine the blackberries, honey, lemon juice, and tapicoa. Toss to combine.
  2. Put the oats, flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Pulse several times to combine. Add the butter and pulse until well combined. Note: You can also work the ingredients together by hand in a large bowl.
  3. Spread the topping over berries—it doesn't need to be terribly even and leaving space here and there gives the filling something to bubble up through.
  4. Bake until the berry filling is bubbling and topping is browned, about 1 hour. Let cool at least slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 6 to 8 serving Blackberry Honey Crisp.
