How to Make Keto Berry Crumble
For the Berries
Preheat your oven to 375F.
Mix the Swerve confectioners and xanthan gum in a cup, then set aside.
Add the berries, lemon juice and zest to a large bowl.
Sprinkle the Swerve mixture over the top and toss until well coated.
Pour the mixture into a buttered glass or ceramic baking dish.
For the Gluten Free Streusel Topping
In a separate bowl, add all the crumble topping ingredients, except for the Swerve Brown and butter, and give it a good whisk, breaking up any large lumps.
Don’t worry about the smaller lumps because it will all bake together and will give it that streusel like texture.
Mix in the Swerve Brown and melted butter.
Sprinkle the crumble over the top of the berries.
Bake for 30 minutes. Increase the temperature to 425F and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the crumble is crisp.
Allow to cool slightly before serving!
Tips for Making the Best Keto Berry Crisp
- Shop for berries on sale. Fruit, when not in season, can be a little pricy. Shopping for locally harvested berries at fruit stands or farmer’s markets are sometimes where you’ll find the best berries and they are usually less expensive then the grocery store.
- If you can’t find fresh berries in season, you can use frozen. Berries that are frozen are picked at peak season so they’re a great substitute. When making a Keto crumble or crisp with frozen berries, you will need to add a few additional minutes to the cooking time to allow the extra moisture to cook out.
- Because berries become juicier when they are cooked, using a thickener like the one used in this recipe, xanthan gum, will give the crumble a nice thick and glistening sauce like consistency, so don’t skip that ingredient.
- Keep an eye out for the top turning too brown. You don’t want to shorten the cooking time to ensure the crumble is cooked through so if the top begins to turn too brown, cover with a little aluminum foil until it finishes baking.
- Even in season berries can be a little too tart sometimes so taste them before you mix them up. Add a little more sweetener if need needed, it won’t hurt a thing
