Easy Blueberry Crisp Recipe Without Butter

This post about Easy Blueberry Crisp Recipe has been updated since we published it in 2014.  A friend invited me to pick blueberries with her in September, so I jumped at the chance since the patch I discuss below never opened due to a late frost

I have been going to the same Blueberry farm since my daughter was in a baby Bjorn, she is now 12 years old. There is something about picking fruit from a bush that makes it so much better.

I did think that having 3 grown kids with me would make the process go quicker, but it seems as they get older they have become less interested. I only brought home 5 pounds of blueberries this year so I will have to make a trip out again.

I searched for a quick and easy recipe for our first night with our bounty, and found this Easy Blueberry Crisp Recipe without butter

Have you begun to guess what the Secret ingredient is yet? Can you say mayonnaise? I was as skeptical as you might be right now but the mayo actually gives the topping a little tang.

I only had light mayonnaise so it may help with calories too. LOL>

This is such an easy Blueberry Crisp recipe you can assemble everything while you’re preheating the oven.



Just pour your freshly washed blueberries or other fruit combos in your pan, I chose to make ours in a pie pan.


Once you understand the basics of making a crisp topping, you can use literally any fruit to make a sweet and juicy filling. Here’s how to make a fruit crisp in four easy steps.

crisp topping ingredients with a twist

Crisps always include whole oats AND held together with a mixture of flour, sugar, and butter OR IN THIS CASE MAYO and bake up into crisp and tender pastry.

Mix your toppings in a separate bowl. Pretty basic right?

Now it is time to add your secret ingredient, mayo? I mean really who would have thought. Since you can substitute Greek yogurt for mayo I wonder if you can do the same in the recipe.

Any thoughts about eliminating the mayo in this dessert? 

Super easy crisp recipe

Cover the blueberries with the topping just like any other fruit crisp recipe and bake.


SERVE THIS BABY WARM OR AT ROOM TEMP.  I prefer it a little warm out of the oven, and it makes that vanilla ice cream melt so perfectly.
