Crumbly Cereal Crisp


I bought a bunch of frozen berries and oats for this blueberry muffin recipe and then realized they were just going to sit around my apartment until I found another recipe to make. So I made a berry crisp so we can have berries at the start and end of our day! When I make crisps I like to make twice as much of the crumbly stuff so I can put it on the bottom and the top of the pan. I used strawberries and blueberries, but you can use whatever you’d like as long as it adds up to “3 cups.” You’ll see what I mean by cups.

Here’s what you need: 

    • 1 cup uncooked, old fashioned oats
    • 1 cup flour, either:
Here’s what I mean by a cup.
    • 1 cup all purpose flour OR
    • 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • Butter/margarine, either:
    • 1/2 cup if you used 1 cup of all purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup if you used whole wheat and all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 cups strawberries
Here’s what to do:
One of these should be cut into pieces!
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Grease a 8×8 pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix the berries and the sugar together. I suggest frozen fruit because it’s easier but if you prefer fresh then go for it. Cut some of the strawberries in pieces if they’re too large.
  3. In another bowl mix the flour, oats, brown sugar and melted butter. Stir it well but realize it’s going to be clumpy which is perfect!
  4. Take half the oat mixture and spread it in the bottom of your pan. Layer the berries on top of that. Cover all of it with the rest of the oat mixture!
  5. Stick in the oven for 40ish minutes.
The berries should be nicely covered in sugar.
