This berry crisp recipe is made without oats, which technically makes it a berry crumble. A quick google search has taught me that crisps generally contain oats while crumbles usually don’t. But despite the fact that this berry crisp doesn’t contain any oats, it will still be referred to as a crisp in this blog post because that sounds nicer, fresher, and more hopeful. Do not ask me what a cobbler is.Read More
