Fruit crisp is a perfect summer dessert recipe to serve a hungry crowd.  The oat crumble on top  bakes up crispy and golden and hides beneath it a luscious bubbly syrupy berry mixture.

This Summer Fruit Crisp is one of my favorite summer desserts to make.  I love fruit desserts (over chocolate ones – I know crazy) and I love warm berries!  I love the crispy almond oat topping that makes this berry crisp complete!  I serve it with either vanilla ice cream, frozen vanilla yogurt or just regular low-fat vanilla yogurt.

HOW TO MAKE FRUIT CRISP

This recipe comes together in about 20 minutes start-to-finish.  It can be baked in a pie dish or go for a more rustic look and bake it in a medium size iron skillet.  When it comes out of the oven, add a few scoops of vanilla ice cream to the top (or frozen vanilla yogurt) and serve with dessert bowls and spoons.

  1. Make fruit crisp topping: (directions below)
  2. Prepare fruit:  Combine the berries in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, the brown rice flour and the lemon zest. Gently stir to blend so the berries are evenly coated.
  3. Baking dish:  Place berry mixture in a 9 inch pie dish. Sprinkle any remaining flour mixture over the top of the berries and gently toss.
  4. Sprinkle topping:  Sprinkle almond oat topping evenly over the top of the berries.
  5. Bake fruit crisp:  Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is browned and the berries are bubbling.

This healthy berry crisp looks somewhat neat and composed at first glance, but really – it’s kind of a hot mess beneath the surface.  The berries soften and release their juices to make a really vibrant (and really messy) syrup.  Trust me.  No one will complain!
