Healthy Berry Crisp

(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 healthy
3.      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 cinnamon
5.      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!

  1. ugh, wish my pictures were as good as yours! They don't do the dish any justice.

  2. I'm always looking for easy recipes that Vernon can eat (allergies) and will like. This one looks PERFECT after I remove/replace the nut ingredients!

  3. Sarah: your pics look fine!! ;0) I hardly take pics of the process, usually because I forget too!! But I think sometimes it's nice to have those pics so people know what things are suppose to look like! Thanks for guest posting! xXx
