As much as I love to bake big batches of cookies, pans of brownies, and other crowd-pleasing treats, sometimes I want to make something for just the two of us to enjoy. That’s where this wonderful Blueberry Crumble for Two comes into the picture.

These little crumbles are so, so easy to make and are just the kind of dessert we love. That sweet berry filling combined with a crumbly oat topping is pretty much perfection in our book. Add a big scoop of ice cream, and we’re in dessert heaven!

I love to bake these individual crumbles in small tart pans like the ones you see in these photos. (You can find similar ones here.) You can make them in any 6 to 8 ounce baking dishes. I like to use these tart pans because there’s more room for crumb topping. If you use something more like ramekins, which will be deeper and not as wide, just keep in mind that you may not be able to use all of the crumb topping.

These crumbles are a great way to use up those few blueberries lingering in your refrigerator. They’ll also work for other berries, too. Either just one kind or a mixture. This is just the kind of recipe to make when you don’t have enough berries for a larger dessert but don’t want them to go to waste.

Serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of sweetened whipped cream for a fantastic dessert to share with someone.

For the filling:

  • 1 cup (170g) blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the topping:

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar

  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes


To make the filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine the blueberries, sugar, vanilla, and cornstarch.
  3. Divide the mixture between two 6- to 8-ounce capacity baking dishes.

To make the topping and assemble:

  1. Combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the butter, and mix with a fork, a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture forms crumbs.
  2. Sprinkle the oat mixture over the top of the filling. Placed the baking dishes on a lined, rimmed baking sheet to catch any potential spills.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until the topping has browned and the filling is bubbly.

  1. Looks so delicious! I love blueberry crumble!

  2. These look so tasty! I’m not crazy about sweet desserts so this is perfect. Looking forward to making it. Thanks for posting, Jennifer!

  3. Wow this cake recipe is so delicious, thank you for sharing your blog

  4. Yummy. It looks really delicious! And perfect for us over here, since we are only two in the house, haha.

  5. Can you use nuts instead of the oats? And how much?

  6. I make this often it is quick and easy. I use frozen blueberries, Erythritol instead of sugar (I also cut back a bit on the sweetener), and almond flour. It is very good. Thanks for the recipe I like the fact I am making a small amount and I can make it fresh easily when I want some.

  7. Since my husband and I are empty nesters, it was refreshing to find a dessert recipe designed for two rather than making one big batch. I made this using freshly picked wild HUCKLEBERRIES from the Washington state coast instead of blueberries. I also substituted the white sugar and the all-purpose flour with Stevia and almond flour. It turned out great. Delicious!

  8. Frozen raspberries (my favorite berry) were on sale at my local market so I stocked up and made raspberry crumble….and with a scoop of Haagen Dazs vanilla…..I’m in heaven 🙂

  9.  If you use apples should you just cut or slice them smaller or cook them a little before you bake it.  I like to try it with apples.  Thank you
