Tri-Berry Humble Crumble

Tri-Berry Humble Crumble Recipe:

Ingredients (serves 7-10):

  • Mulberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Cornmeal
  • All purpose flour
  • Baking powder 
  • Rolled oats (optional)
  • Corn starch
  • Coconut sugar (or any sugar, can even combine sugars together)
  • Butter 
  • Ginger root



  1. Move 1.5 c (1.5 sticks) of butter from fridge to freezer and leave in for 15 min. 
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Next, you’ll need 3-4 cups of all 3 berries combined. Thoroughly wash your berries. For detail cleaning, soak your berries in water with a good splash of vinegar and have it sit for 1-2 minutes, then strain water and leave aside to dry. 
  4. In large bowl, combine 1 c of flour, 1/2 c cornmeal, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 c coconut sugar, 2 tsp grated ginger, 3/4 c oats. 
  5. Take cold butter out and grate or thinly slice and add to flour mixture. You don’t want the butter to melt, so use a fork to smush and mix the butter in with the flour mixture. 
  6. Once the butter has started to clump, use your hands to incorporate any excess flour. This mixture should be dry and crumbly. Grab a handful of it and give it a squeeze, the flour-butter mixture should smush together. 
  7. Head back to your berries and grate in 2 tsp ginger, then toss in with a sprinkle of sugar to loosely cover, and a good sprinkling of cornstarch. 
  8. Pull out a 8-10” cast iron or a med sized casserole dish and start patting down the crumble mixture with your fingers to make around a 1” crust on the bottom of dish. 
  9. Toss in berries and spread out evenly. 
  10. Grab handful of the crumble mixture, squeeze it, then crumble on top of the berries making different sized crumbles. 
  11. Move inside oven and it should be ready in 40-45 minutes.
  12. Serve with ice-cream if you want something creamy to go along with your crunch and berries. If you have leftover crumble mixture, you can freeze to use later. Same goes with berries.
