Gluten-Free Summer Berry Skillet Crisp - full of the best summer berries

I know I’ve talked about this before, but I have a serious issue when I see summer fruit at Costco.  I can NOT buy enough.  A few weeks ago, I needed food for five days, just five.  Now, given my current insatiable pregnancy hunger, I do eat enough for an extra person, but I’m pretty sure that either way, Matt and I can not possibly consume 4 pounds of blueberries, 4 pounds of strawberries and 1 pound of blackberries in just five days.  Believe me, I’ve tried.  So what’s a person to do when they have an excessive amount of fruit?  Bake of course.

{Gluten-Free} Summer Berry Skillet Crisp - just dig in with a spoon!

I generally don’t let a season pass without making at least one warm fruit crumble of sorts.  They are almost too easy to make and compared to some of my typical baking, they are definitely on the lighter side.  Of course a generous helping of ice cream is always necessary, but hey, a pregnant lady needs calcium!  This might be one of my favorites because it is heavy on the blueberries.  There was one summer where I swear, we made blueberry crisp multiple times a week throughout the entire season.  So between the nostalgia, and the wonderful bursts of flavor, this crisp definitely made me happy.
