(serves 4) Using American measurements.
1. Coat 4 ramekins with cooking spray. I used a large muffin tin which works just as well.2. Mix together the following in a large bowl
a. 2 cups of fresh or frozen berries – I like to use fresh blackberries and blueberries, you can use any you like just NOT strawberries, they do not reduce in the same way as the smaller berries.
b. 2 ½ tsp granulated sugar
c. 2 tsp uncooked instant tapioca. – You may substitute cornstarch, although less healthy3. Evenly divide the berry mixture among 4 ramekins
4. Mix together the following in a separate bowl for the topping
a. 3 Tbsp oats (do not use quick-cook)
b. 2 ½ Tbsp flour
c. 2 ½ Tbsp chopped walnuts
d. 2 Tbsp brown sugar (dark or light)
e. 4 tsp walnut oil (may substitute another type, but this really adds to the flavor)
f. 2 tsp maple syrup
g. ¼ tsp salt
h. ¼ tsp cinnamon5. Evenly divide topping over the berry mixture
6. Bake at 350F for about 30 mins – crisps should be browned and bubbling
7. Serve with a little vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or double cream (UK style).
Hope you enjoy!
