Berry Granola Crisp

Now that it’s summer there are some great deals on berries.

Here’s a easy recipe for whipping up a dessert in no time.

In addition to basic pantry items that you may have on hand, you’ll need some fresh (or frozen) berries, and some granola. 

An option is to also have some vanilla ice cream on hand to really jazz it up.

This is the type of recipe that can be made without getting a lot of dishes dirty.  The berry filling is mixed together in the same dish that’s used for baking.

The topping is so delicious too.  It tastes like a streusel with an added bonus of granola.

My fave way to serve this is to add some vanilla ice cream over the top of the crisp when it’s still warm.

Then let the ice cream melt over the entire top of the dessert so there’s ultra deliciousness with every bite.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

For the Filling – strawberries, blueberries, lime, sugar, and coarse or sea salt.

For the Topping – granola, sliced almonds, brown sugar, butter, salt and flour. 
  

Here’s how to make it:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the Filling:

Cut each strawberry into quarters….

….and add them to a 1.3 quart oval baking dish…..

……an 8×8 inch 2 quart baking dish should also work well.

Rinse the blueberries….

….and add them to the baking dish.

Then,

cut the lime in quarters,

and…

…..squeeze the juice from the entire lime over the berries.

Next,

add the sugar…

 

…and the salt,

and….

….mix all of the ingredients together.

Set aside while making the topping.

For the Topping:

In a medium size bowl, add the granola….

….brown sugar….

….flour….

….sliced almonds….

and the salt.

Then, if your butter is soft add it in the mixture. 

If the butter hard, put it in the microwave for about 2 or 3 seconds and then add it to the mixture.

Mix all of the topping ingredients together with a fork.

Next, going back to the filling; give the berries a quick mix.

Then sprinkle the topping evenly over the berries.

Next,

Bake in the oven until you can see the filling bubbling and the granola topping is brown (about 30 to 40 minutes). 

Leaving it in the oven too long may dry out the filling a bit.

Serve warm, or cool….

….and top with vanilla ice cream.

Enjoy.

It’s soooo delicious.
