- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/3 cup flour
- 2 tbsp almond flour (or use more flour)
- 1 tbsp oil , coconut or organic safflower
- 1/4 tsp salt
- a generous pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg or both
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar or light brown sugar or other fine sugar
- 1 to 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 3.5 to 4 cups of blueberries and cherries or other berry mix
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp arrowsroot starch
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2-3 tbsp water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, Add oats and toast for 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the flour and mix in and toast for another 2 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add the almond flour and oil and mix in well and toast for half a minute. Add the salt, spices and sugar and mix in. Take off heat.
Add maple syrup a tbsp at a time, while still hot, and mix in to make crumbly mixture. Add a tsp more oil or maple to get the texture you prefer. Taste and adjust sweet by adding in some more coconut sugar. Transfer mixture to a bowl
Combine the ingredients for the berry mixture in the same or different skillet over medium heat. Mix well and cook for 7 to 9 minutes partially covered, or until the berries are tender and the mixture thickens slightly. Taste and adjust sweet and flavor. Add more water if too thick. (This berry mix works equally well with frozen berries. Cook time might increase by a minute or so).
Immediately transfer the berries to serving bowls. Top with the crisp generously. Add a dollop of vegan ice cream or whipped coconut cream and serve.
