2 c fresh or frozen strawberries, halved
1 c " blueberries
1 c " raspberries
.25 c corn starch
4 t sugar
1 c uncooked rolled oats
1/3 c whole wheat flour
5 T butter blend
1/2 c dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 c pecans or walnuts
Serve with lowfat vanilla frozen yogurt for dessert or yogurt for breakfast.
Set oven to 350.
Add berries to a large bowl. Toss with Corn starch and 4t of sugar or splenda. If you are using a greater portion of tart berries, you will need to add more sweetener. Pour mixture into a low baking.
Using same bowl, combine oats, flour, brown sugar or splenda, pecans, salt, cinnamon. Dice cold butter (this can be made with a good oil, like walnut, for a vegan dish) and cut into mixture until the butter is incorporated (it will look like a course meal.) I use my hands to mash the butter into the mix. Pour the topping over the berries and evenly distribute without packing it down.
Bake for 35 minutes at 350 until the berries bubble and top begins to brown.
Great way to get an extra fruit serving!
