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 the most. I love how macerated they get and how they naturally breakdown to be such a juicy and fruit dessert. The crisp topping is the perfect mix of crispy, buttery and 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?

Notes on the Ingredients

ingredients for strawberry crisp

brown sugar – you can also use regular sugar, coconut sugar or any other kind once it’s not liquid.

Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour – my favourite gluten free flour! I use it in the filling to create a nice and 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 – adds a bright punch to the flavour! You could also use lemon juice (half the amount) or pineapple juice.

sea salt – brings all the flavours together. If 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 – adds delicious flavour and helps with the consistency on the topping. The one I use is salted. If yours is unsalted, add a pinch of salt. You could also sub oil, adding a pinch of salt.

How to Make Vegan Strawberry Crisp (Step by Step Instructions)

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.

step by step instructions on making dessert

In your 8×8 baking dish, stir together the 4 tablespoons of sugar, 3 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, and the sea salt. Add the strawberries and toss to coat completely. Allow to sit for 10 minutes to bring out the flavor of the strawberries and to thicken their juices.

In another bowl, mix together the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, remaining 3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, and 5 tablespoons sugar. Pour over the melted butter and mix until bit by bit until a crumble forms. You can use your fingers to clump it together in bits too. Don’t over mix it.

Expert Tips and FAQ

  • 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.
  • If you want a thicker crisp, feel free to make a little bit more to cover it up even more!
  • 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.
  • A scoop of my Cashew Ice Cream would taste incredible with this!
  • This will last in your fridge for at least 4 days!
