Summer Berry Crisp
Filling – Summer Berry Crisp:
- 3-4 cups of organic berries (frozen or fresh)
- 1 TBS vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
Topping – Summer Berry Crisp:
- ½ cup walnuts or brazil nuts
- ½ cup pecans or hazelnuts
- ¼ cup date sugar*
- ¼ cup oatmeal*
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp cardamom
- Pinch of sea salt
- 2-4 TBS butter
In a pot, combine berries with vanilla extract. Cook on low for ~10 minutes; stirring frequently. Add arrowroot powder to thicken the sauce.
In the meantime, add all of the ingredients for the topping into a food processor and blend until combined.
Pour berries into a medium size oven-friendly dish; cover with topping. Broil on low for about 5 minutes. Watch carefully; it has a tendency to cook fast and burn. Serve warm or cold.
*Optional ingredients based on your dietary preferences.
In the fall and wintertime, the Summer Berry Crisp is an amazing topping for a healthy sweet potato casserole.
