Fresh tasting, Pretty and Yummy!

New! I’ve added a cooking video to this page so you can see how quick and easy it is to make this gluten-free Blueberry Crumble!

If you’re new to the website, I have a printable recipe on the bottom of every recipe page with exact measurements and directions.


Original post..

My husband and his entire family love blueberry desserts!

I used to make blueberry pie all the time but ever since my son was diagnosed with celiac disease and went gluten-free, I have to admit  I’m not a huge fan of all the work involved in making a pie crust.

So we started making blueberry crumble and my husband loves it!

It is super easy and just as yummy.

All you do is mix:

blueberries (we’ve used fresh or frozen wild blueberries) with



corn starch or gluten-free flour

and some lemon juice.

Pro tip: I use frozen wild blueberries, they are they smaller ones, and I de-thaw them in a colander in the sink so they drain a lot of water while they defrost.

Then pour into a baking pan.

I make it in a pie pan too to make it look extra special and pretty!

Then top it with the crumble topping of:

gluten-free all purpose flour (we use GF Jules affiliate link)

gluten-free oats

brown sugar

butter or dairy free butter

and cinnamon.

As an aside, you may have noticed that we are affiliate for GFJules.  To learn more about why we love GFJules flour and why we have used it for 10 years, click here.

And importantly, purchasing through an affiliate link does not change your cost at all. It generates a small percentage of the sale for me, and purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!

Back to the gluten-free Blueberry Crumble

You mix the crumble ingredients together with either a pastry cutter or your hands until well combined.

After you mix all the ingredients, all you do is put the crumble on top of the blueberries and bake!

It couldn’t be easier!

We make it all year round using fresh blueberries in the Summer and frozen wild blueberries in the Winter.

And served in a pie pan, it’s a pretty and crowd-pleasing dessert!

Hope you love it as much as we do!

  1. This blueberry crumble was an absolute hit at my family’s Christmas dinner! I almost didn’t make it because I was running out of time, but I am so glad I did! My dad is still talking about this dessert and requests it to be his birthday dessert from now on! So glad it is quick and easy and so thankful for this recipe from Karen!!

  2. This crumble looks awesome! Would I be able to use gf oat flour and maple syrup or coconut sugar as the flours and sweetener respectively? Thinking of using coconut ghee as the butter substitute…. Your guidance and expertise would be so welcome! (Trying to see if i can use what I have in my pantry to make your delicious crumble!) Thanks so much in advance Karen!

  3. I decided to make this on my birthday and it did not disappoint! It was easy to make and very delicious especially topping it off with vanilla ice cream! Thanks so much Karen for sharing this recipe. The family loves it!

  4. The filling section says “flour or cornstartch”. I assume gluten-free flour? Is cornstarch typically gluten-free?
