Nutrition Profile:


  • 6 cups fresh blackberries

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar plus 3 tablespoons, divided

  • ½ cup white whole-wheat flour

  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Toss together blackberries, cornstarch, lime zest, lime juice and 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a large bowl. Transfer to a 7- by-11-inch (2 -quart) baking dish.

  2. Whisk flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, ginger and the remaining 3 tablespoons granulated sugar in a small bowl. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Drizzle oil over the mixture and continue working the mixture until it's evenly moistened and there are no large clumps. Sprinkle the flour mixture evenly over the blackberry mixture.

  3. Bake until the topping is golden and the blackberries are bubbling, about 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
