For the berry filling:

6 cups freshly picked mixed berries (or if you can’t make it out to go picking use 2 bags of frozen berries)_DSC3243
4 tablespoons honey (can be substituted with maple or birch syrup)
8 tbsp (½ cup) lemon juice
4 tsp cinnamon
8 tbsp (1/2 cup) Whole Wheat flour

For the crumble:

2 cup rolled oats
¾ Cup Whole Wheat flour
8 Tbsp (1/2 Cup) canola oil OR coconut oil

8 Tbsp (1/2 Cup) honey (can be substituted with maple or birch syrup)

*Yogurt for topping

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. If you’re using frozen berries, defrost in the microwave until soft (4-6 minutes, depending on microwave).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the berries, honey (or syrup), lemon juice, cinnamon, and whole wheat flour. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the rolled oats, whole flour, and honey. (If using coconut oil melt in the microwave on medium heat until liquid.
  4. Drizzle the oil into the mixture and stir well. The ingredients should start to clump together, forming a crumble-like texture.
  5. Spray a 9″ by 9″ baking dish or pie plate with non-stick spray. Pour the berry mixture in first, then sprinkle the crumble topping over its surface.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the berry mixture is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Serve warm.
  7. Add a generous spoonful of plain yogurt to your berry crumble!
