Fruit Crisp Topping for Freezer

One of our favorite summer desserts are fruit cobblers and crisps. I found that I can make a fruit cobbler quickly by using the master muffin mix and spreading over fruit.

I recently found a fruit crisp topping mix that could be prepared ahead and frozen. I love ideas like this that can be prepared ahead of time for a quick dessert or unexpected guests. The original recipe comes from Life as Mom but she didn't include directions of how to actual use it specifically, so I'll share how I did it.

Fruit Crisp Topping for Freezer

2 3/4 cup flour (I used whole wheat.)
1 cup quick oats
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup soft butter

Mix all together. Fill pint containers and freeze. Makes about 5 pints.
 To use, place 1 quart of fruit in 9x13 pan. I used 2 cup canned peaches and 2 cups fresh blueberries here.
Sprinkle 1 pint of topping over fruit.
Bake at 350 until hot and bubbly. I baked for 20 minutes.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or milk!

I'll be trying this recipe with other fruits. I'm not sure if when using a "drier" fruit like apples, if more liquid will be needed. If you give this a try, let me know what works for you.

  1. I'm going to try this. I have a crumb recipe now that I freeze, but it doesn't have all this fiber (oatmeal). Thanks for sharing!

  8. Carlene - I never thought of adding the topping to a pie but I wouldn't know any reason why it wouldn't work. I think I'll try it! Thanks for the idea!

  10. Based on your instruction, I tried a gluten free version of this and it worked out nicely. Used Almond flour and made the topping taste like the cookie part of oatmeal raisin cookies crumbled on top. It was very good. Thanks for posting this.
