Vegan Strawberry Crisp has been my go-to quick fruity dessert for a while. Sometimes I substitute in blueberries, or even apples, but I always return to strawberries. I love how macerated they get and how they naturally breakdown to be such a juicy and fruity dessert. The crisp topping is the perfect mix of crispy and buttery, with a hint of sweetness for a great weeknight dessert!

I’ve re-done this recipe to be a completely updated treat of the version I’ve enjoyed and I’m so happy to be re-making it with Bob’s Red Mill products, and to be a Bob’s Red Mill ambassador!

I’ve loved being an ambassador for so many years and seeing how many of you have converted to using their products. I go into the two products that I use here in more detail below, but I love the high quality, consistency, and taste/texture of all their products. They work perfectly in this crisp, too!

P.S. – Do you call it a crisp or a crumble? I call this recipe a crisp, but I’ve also got a recipe for Strawberry Crumble!

Why You’ll Love This Strawberry Crisp

Grab those fresh strawberries, and let’s get started on this simple strawberry crisp recipe! Here’s why I’m so obsessed with this dessert:

  • Sweet and citrusy. Soft, citrus-infused strawberries pair so well with a sweet, crispy oat topping! It’s too good for words.
  • Quick and easy. You can prep this dessert in 20 minutes with only 7 ingredients! Then, all you have to do is wait for it to bake and cool.
  • The perfect summer dessert for any occasion. Strawberry crisp is the perfect casual dessert for a warm summer night, but you can also double the recipe and serve it for a dinner party. Up to you!

Notes on Ingredients

Scroll down to the recipe card to find the ingredient quantities and recipe instructions.

  • Brown Sugar – You can also use regular granulated sugar, coconut sugar, or any other kind as long as it’s not liquid.
  • Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour – My favourite gluten free flour! I use it to create a nice, thick, juicy filling, and in the topping for the perfect crunchy crisp. 
  • Strawberries – You can use either fresh or frozen! I have tips below if you’re using frozen.
  • Orange Juice – This adds a bright punch of tangy flavour! You could also use lemon juice (half the amount) or pineapple juice.
  • Sea Salt – This brings all the flavours together. If you’re using kosher salt, use a little less so that it’s not too salty (since the granules are smaller).
  • Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats – These are my favourite oats! I love that they are certified gluten free if you need them to be. I recommend sticking to the old fashioned rolled oats kind so that the texture is correct. If you use quick oats, they might dissolve too quickly while cooking.
  • Melted Vegan Butter – Vegan butter helps achieve the desired crisp, buttery consistency of the topping. The one I use is salted. If yours is unsalted, add a pinch of salt. You could also sub in oil, adding a pinch of salt.

How to Make Vegan Strawberry Crisp

Ready to see how this easy strawberry crisp comes together? Here’s the step-by-step guide!

  • Coat the strawberries. In your 8×8 baking dish, stir together the sugar, the Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, and the sea salt. Add the strawberries and toss to coat them completely. Allow everything to sit for 10 minutes to bring out the flavor of the strawberries and to thicken their juices.

  • Make the crisp topping. In another bowl, mix together the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, the remaining Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, and the sugar. Pour the melted butter over the sugar and flour, and mix bit by bit until a crumble forms. You can use your fingers to clump it together in bits too. Don’t over-mix it.
  • Assemble. Top the strawberries with the oat flour mixture, covering everything entirely.
  • Bake the crisp. Bake for 30 minutes, then broil on low for a few minutes until the top is golden brown. Allow everything to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Scoop into bowls and serve with ice cream for the best result! 

Tips for Success

It’s a pretty simple process, but I’ve got a couple of tips and tricks that will help you out with this strawberry crisp recipe!

  • Add more sugar if needed. If you’re using very fresh and tart strawberries, feel free to increase the sugar in the filling by 1 or 2 tablespoons. You can always taste a small amount of it after the ten minute rest period to see if it’ll be sweet enough for you! 
  • If you’re using frozen strawberries, let them thaw completely first. You can drain off the excess liquid, or add in a few more tablespoons of flour until it looks like in the photos.
  • For a thicker crisp. If you want a thicker crisp, feel free to make a little bit more of the topping to cover it up even more!
  • Possible flour substitutions. If you’re not gluten free, you can use Bob’s Red Mill Unbleached White All Purpose Flour.
  • You could also use individual ramekins to make this. I would split it between 4-5 individual ones.

Serving Suggestions

Strawberry crisp is pretty great as-is, but there are a couple of add-ons that you can indulge in if you like! A scoop of my Cashew Ice Cream would taste incredible with this. Cashew Whipped Cream would be great, too! A serving of fresh fruit on the side (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.) is always a good idea as well.
