Isn't berry season the best season ever?!
Some of nature's best candy, in my opinion.
I've noticed that every year for the past 3 years, this is the first dessert I make with berries when they come around. It's just too good and simple not to.
Goes extra well with some creamy coconut ice cream.
Indulge without guilt with this gluten-free and refined sugar-free dessert.
3 1/2 cups mixed berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)
1 Tablespoon coconut sugar
2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons goji extract powder
1 teaspoon lucuma
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean or vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
3/4 cup ghee/clarified butter, diced
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- To make berry layer: Toss berries with coconut sugar in a medium-size bowl and place in your baking dish.
- To make crumble: Place all ingredients, except ghee, in a large bowl and combine well. Add ghee and press down with fork or pastry cutter to cut ghee into smaller pieces and blend into the mixture.
- Spread out crumble evenly over berries.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, until berries are soft and crumble is browned (not burnt).
