How to make Apple Blueberry Crisp:

Step 1
Prep apples. Peel and core the apples. Chop into small bite-sized pieces. Add to a 9×9 baking dish and squeeze the lemon over top.

Step 2
Combine the filling ingredients. Then add the frozen blueberries, flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract to the dish and mix to combine.

Step 3
Prep the crumble topping. In another bowl combine the topping – the flour, sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the melted butter on top and stir to combine.

Step 4
Add crumble topping to the dish. Add the crumble on top of the filling and spread evenly to all sides of the pan.

Step 5
Bake crisp. Bake apple blueberry crisp in a preheated 350-degree oven for 40-45 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. If you like your apples super soft, you may need to bake it for a little bit longer.
