Stepf's Whole-Grain Fruit Crisp

Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Introduction

Crisps are a quick and easy dessert. I like to use whatever fruit is in season: blueberries, strawberries, peaches, cherries, plums, pears, and apples.

I use two cups of fruit in this recipe so that each person gets a full serving of fruit, but when you buy berries they come in pints. One pint of berries yields about 1 1/2 cups. That means you're either a half-cup short or you need to buy two and have a cup leftover. Save the extra berries for your morning cereal, freeze them for smoothies--or just add them to the crisp. The more fruit, the merrier.

You can use frozen (no need to thaw before baking) or fresh fruit in this recipe.

Serve any leftovers atop plain yogurt for breakfast.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Coat a 9"x9" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Add the berries to the dish, sprinkle on the lemon juice and half of the sugar.
Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add the margarine, and use a fork or a pastry cutter to blend the margarine into the ingredients. Once the margarine is well incorporated, spread the topping evenly over the fruit.
Bake, uncovered, until the topping is crispy and slightly browned and the fruit is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
