An irresistible gluten-free summer dessert! This easy crumble is bursting with blueberries, topped with the yummiest crumble and a total crowd-pleaser! Enjoy in the winter months with frozen wild blueberries for a taste of summer and it's still so good!
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.
Hope you love it as much as we do!
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. (That said, I have been working on one to share with all of you!)
So we started making blueberry crumble and my husband loves it!
It is super easy and just as yummy.
All you need is:
blueberries (we’ve used fresh or frozen wild blueberries)
and some lemon juice.
Pro tip:If using frozen blueberries, we love 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.
In the Summer we love making this with fresh blueberries!
And all you do is mix the all the ingredients together in a bowl and pour into your baking dish.
Pro tip:Before mixing them together, I like to fill my baking dish with the blueberries (especially if using fresh blueberries because it’s not messy to do so) and see how they fit… this allows you to add more or less blueberries to make sure your crumble is full… remember, all fruit shrinks when it bakes.
And you can use any shape baking pan you love or have!
I like to switch it up…. here I used a round pan to make it feel more like a pie…
Then top it with the crumble topping of:
gluten-free all purpose flour (we use GF Jules affiliate link)
butter or dairy free butter
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!
You can also leave the edges without crumble if you want to see more of the blueberries as it bakes! If you do this however, you might want to bake it on a baking sheet, in case the blueberries bubble over while baking!
You home will smell amazing while it bakes!
Once baked, let cool a bit so that it sets (if might be watery depending on your blueberries, but will continue to thicken as it cools.
Then serve, with or without some vanilla ice cream, and enjoy!
Hope you love it as much as we do!
