This very easy low carb skillet blueberry crisp recipe can be made with any berry you like and with or without any low carb sweeteners at all. Perfect for a quick weeknight dessert or even enjoy for breakfast!

Sharing my love for crumbles, breakfast cereal and simplicity all in one today with this super easy Low-carb Blueberry Crisp. What I love about this low carb crisp is that if you prefer not to add sweeteners and don’t like your desserts too sweet you can totally skip the low-carb sweetener and just make the base with fruit.  It’s super simple to adjust to using any berries you like, if blueberries aren’t your favorite. The gluten free topping is like a delicious low carb granola on top, warmed beautifully in a skillet over the berries!

The topping has coconut and spices to sweeten and add flavor naturally without necessarily needing to add a sweetener. I have added the sweetener though for those of you who prefer things a little sweeter. I haven’t made it overly sweet so feel free to adjust to your taste. Adding the sweetener does make the blueberries juicier though so I leave this up to you.

Large Mixing Bowls– I use different sized glass bowls daily in my low carb keto kitchen. I love them because you can use them over heat for melting ingredients and they work equally well in the microwave. 

Cast Iron Skillet-Having at least one large cast iron skillet is all you really need whether you’re making a savory or sweet recipe. It heats up evenly and makes a wonderful crispy crust when searing anything. I have used my cast iron for my Deep Dish Cauliflower Pizza and my Low Carb Corn bread and for my Low Carb Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Pie with great success!
