I am constantly carrying my share of frozen fruits in my freezer. I buy it in the biggest bags the market offers. There are a lot of great dishes to make with frozen fruits, but sometimes a sorbet or smoothie is not what you really, really want. So to make a dish I could serve with sorbet, yogurt or ice cream, and to still give me one of my 5 per day fruit servings, I came up with this treat. Although I used a medley of berries (4 to be exact), this is also a dessert you can swap out with any frozen fruit. And, you will probably have most of these ingredients in your pantry.

Another hint for butter is to freeze it. Stick the butter in the freezer an hour or so before you start.

And, you will also notice I mention grate and chop. I grated half of the butter using a hand held grater, and the second half was chopped for the topping of the crisp.
Although this is a dish for six and will last 3-4 days, I doubt seriously if it will be around that long.

• 1 cup old-fashioned oats
• 1/2 cup flour
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• Dash salt
• 1/3 cup unsalted butter chopped and grated
• Berry Filling:
• 4 cups frozen berries**
• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 tablespoon lime juice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Make the topping first by combining the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, grated butter and salt. You can use a wooden spoon or your hands for this part. If using your hands, do not mix for an extended time. The crisp will be a better dish if the butter is not melted but blended/mixed into the oats.

1. Set the topping aside.
2. In another bowl, combine the frozen berries and flour and mix well. Once the berries are covered with the flour, add in the sugar, salt and Lime juice and toss gently to combine.


3. Pour berry mixture into an 8×8’’. Top the berry mixture evenly with the oat mixture. Add the chopped butter to the top of the crisp mixture.
4. Bake for 1 hour or until the topping is golden brown and the berries are bubbling around the edges.
5. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool before serving. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or yogurt, if desired. This is good without the additional topping(s) and can be served hot, room temperature or cold.


P.S.  You can use rice flour and any flour of your choice to replace the wheat.
