No creative intro for this. Just found myself craving dessert today, and made meself a crisp, berry style.
It's really simple, not too sweet, but hits the spot...especially with ice cream.
The secret here is to add granola to the topping to make it nice and crispy, but you can subsitute any fruit for the filling.
- 2 c Berries
- 1/4 c Cassis or Frambois liquor
- lemon wedge
- 1/2 c rolled oats
- 1/4 c whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c granola
- 1/3 brown sugar
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- dash cinnamon
In a food processor, pulse flour, oats, butter, sugar, maple syrup and cinnamon until crumbly and combined. Transfer to a bowl, and then mix in the granola, using your hands to make crumbly clumps. Let the mixture chill in the fridge for a few minutes. Meanwhile, stir the berries with the liquor and a squeeze of lemon, then transfer to a greased baking dish, top with the topping mixture and then transfer to the fridge again to chill for a few minutes before baking. Bake for 20 minutes or so, until topping is golden brown, and serve warm or at room temperature, so long as it comes with ice cream.
