Mixed Berry & Bran Fruit Crisp

This simple one-bowl fruit crisp is made with minimal sugar, frozen berries, healthy cereal, and oats. Use organic cane sugar or coconut sugar for a more naturally-sweetened dessert. Serve this fruity berry crisp with coconut whip for a delicious cold-weather dessert that still whispers “summer”.

Crisp

  2. Layer berries into the pan.
  3. Sprinkle evenly with sugar and cornstarch.
  4. In a bowl, combine SmartBran Cereal, sugar, flours, old fashioned oats, and vegan butter. Stir well until the mixture sticks together a little bit.

  6. Bake for 40 minutes or until the topping appears lightly golden-brown.
  7. Serve with coconut whip (directions below) and flaked coconut.

Coconut Whip

  1. Open chilled coconut cream and scoop out the thickest portion. Discard or save the remaining coconut water for smoothies.
  2. Beat the thick coconut cream with 2 tbsp berry sugar. Beat on high speed until coconut cream is thick and airy.
