mixed berry oat crisp

This is another treat my mom made for us while she was visiting. Jack has been working crazy hours lately so it was really fun that week to have the extra company in the kitchen.

I love these little mini skillets (I love anything mini), but you could bake this in any oven-safe dish you happen to have. You could also sub in any fruit you like (fresh or frozen).

slightly adapted from Bon Appetit.

serves about 4, depending on the size of your dishes.

INGREDIENTS:

1 12-ounce package frozen mixed berries (or fruit of your choice)
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons vegan butter (or regular butter)
ice cream (i’m partial to the Nada Moo coconut ice creams)

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 425.

Mix frozen berries with cornstarch and let sit for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, oats, nuts cinnamon.

Chop chilled butter into smaller pieces and incorporate it into oat mixture with a fork (or your fingers) until crumbly. Don’t overmix.

Place berries in individual skillets or ramekins and spoon the crumble on top.

Bake 20-30 minutes (depending on the depth of your dishes). It’s done with the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbling.

Let cool for 15 minutes, top with ice cream and serve.

    I have a strange obsession with mini! I have mini quiche, pie, bread, etc pans. I find it easier to either freeze or share.

    These look delicious and now my mouth is watering for fresh berries!

    This looks a-mazing! Oat flour is not something I keep in the pantry, do you think it would turn out fine with wheat flour?

    • jeanine from loveandlemons.com on said:

      thanks! Yep, any kind of flour will work just fine.

    Could I substitute arrowroot starch for the cornstarch?

    • jeanine from loveandlemons.com on said:

      Hi Clea,

      I haven’t tried it with arrowroot so I’m not exactly sure, but sometimes I forget the cornstarch altogether and it’s still fine :)

    Is it them same procedure if I use fresh berries?

    • jeanine from loveandlemons.com on said:

      Hi Katia, yep, you can follow the same steps with fresh berries (or any fruit you like).
