Sweet and tart, this magical Keto mixed berry crumble recipe will definitely add some color to your day!
A Lighter Dessert for Keto
Unfortunately, you don’t suddenly stop craving desserts once you flip the switch to Keto. You’re probably going to want sweets occasionally, even if your sugar cravings aren’t as strong as they once were.
That said, you don’t always want something heavy and decadent, like chocolate cake or fudge. Sometimes you just want a light, refreshing cap to a meal.
This Keto mixed berry crumble fits the bill perfectly. You can make use of berries that are fresh and in season and have a lovely dessert without a lot of effort.
If you’re reading this in the off-season, you could also make this with frozen berries.
How I Made This Keto
There are a few issues with your typical berry crumble for a ketogenic diet. First, are the berries themselves.
While berries have less sugar than many other fruits, you should be careful not to overdo it. Raspberries and blackberries have less sugar, while blueberries contain a bit more.
This crumble only contains a cup of mixed berries, so there’s built-in portion control. But, there are some other potential problems for Keto.
The crumble portion of this dessert is riddled with carbs. Crumbles are typically made with oats, white flour, sugar, and brown sugar. Just wow. Carb city.
While it might seem like a fruit-based dessert would be a better choice for Keto, unless it’s been made specifically for your low-carb needs it won’t work.
Instead, for this Keto recipe, I made a tasty topping using almond flour, shredded coconut, coconut oil, and vanilla.
The shredded coconut and vanilla give you sweetness without sugar, and the coconut oil steps in for butter as a binding agent.
Your result is a delightful treat with significantly less carbs than a traditional crumble.

A perfect dessert for a perfect summer day.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Combine the berries and lemon juice in a bowl, gently squishing the berries as you combine. Divide the berries between 6 shallow ovenproof dishes on a try or one ovenproof dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
- While the berries are baking, cut the solid coconut oil into small pieces. Place the almond flour in a bowl and add the pieces of coconut oil. Mix until it resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in vanilla and shredded coconut.
- When the berries are done, remove from oven and scatter the crumb mixture evenly over the top. Place back in over to cook for another 5-8 minutes or until the tops are golden and crispy.
