Fresh blueberries are making an appearance in our markets and this easy blueberry crumble is the perfect way to use them.

A few weeks ago, my daughter invited a few friends to spend the night at the last minute. I usually like to have snacks on hand for the girls to enjoy while they hang out and watch movies together but this time, since it was a spur of the moment invitation, I didn’t make it to the store. Fortunately, I had a pint of blueberries in the fridge and decided to make a quick Blueberry Crumble.

The girls loved it! They enjoyed bowls of the blueberry crumble late that night and my husband and I ate it for breakfast the next morning.

I thought it would be a great idea to take this recipe and alter the ingredients to make a single serving version.

This recipe is easy to make and is sweetened perfectly.

How To Make A Blueberry Crumble

Step 1

Take a half a pint of blueberries (roughly 6 ounces) and gently mix in a little sugar, flour, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt.

Step 2

Spoon the sweetened blueberries into a small baking dish then mix together the ingredients for the crumble topping.

The crumble topping is a mixture of flour, oats, brown sugar, vanilla, and butter and when baked, the topping tastes just like crumbled oatmeal cookies.

Step 3

Bake the blueberry crumble in the oven for about 25 minutes. The mini dessert is perfect for one or maybe even two people.

A reader also suggested serving a mini blueberry crumble at a party where each guest is given their own personal dessert.

For this crumble recipe, I use a 5-inch dish or a ramekin that holds around one cup. For best results, use a dish of similar size.

  1. Any thoughts on doubling or even tripling the topping part of the recipe, without the butter, and storing it to use again for the next crisp or crumble, then just adding in the butter when you need topping for the next time. I thought this blueberry crumble was sensational, and would try it with other fruit as well. Love your recipes. Thanks for taking the time to take the work out of adapting favorite dishes for the rest of us.

    1. Hi Susan,

      I’m so happy you loved the blueberry crumble, thank you for taking the time to let me know!

      Yes, you can definitely double and triple the dry ingredients in the streusel – just leave out the butter and add it when you decided to use the topping.


  2. I don’t usually leave comments when I try a new recipe, but I just made this and it is delicious! I did motify it a little though. I used frozen blueberries and cherries. I used honey instead of sugar for the fruit and added some cinnamon. I also used Kerrygold salted butter for the topping. Sweet and a little salty!!! It is very tasty!

  3. 5 stars
    There are many recipes for families and there are a few recipes for two-all of which leave me eating the same thing for days on end….which is both good and bad; good if I like it, but bad if I don’t!!!
    Thank you for your blog that meets the needs and wants of one person.
    Thank you for this very good recipe. I had to make the flour and oats gluten free, but that’s part of my life now.
    I signed up to get your blog in my email box.

    This is dangerously easy to make! It’s fun when life gives you easy inspiration for dessert. 😉

  6. Yum! I’m growing blueberries this year but I don’t anticipate getting a handful at once unfortunately. To the store I go.

  7. Katherine Turro

    This looks super delicious! I’m always looking for recipes for one person too – thanks for sharing!

  8. This is perfect! Seeing as I’m the only one that loves sweets in my household I love the fact that this serves one person!!! Perfect

  9. So glad I found more recipes for one!! I live alone and I don’t always want to make a whole dessert because I’ll just end up eating it all, haha! Crumbles are probably one of my favorite desserts and I’m glad to see that I already have all the ingredients I need to make one.

    1. Hi Carol, thanks so much for letting me know. I’m trying to figure out what is going on. I don’t seem to have a problem when I check from my end but I’ll keep looking into it.
