Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: one large baking dish or 12 personal desserts

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts of berries blueberries, any fresh fruit will do!
  • 1/3 cup Sweet Leaf, combination of sugar and stevia
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour, you can also use, rice,,almond or coconut flour
  • 2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats, or crushed corn flakes,kasha or quinoa flakes
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, or walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup yogurt or ice cream, I use a vanilla yogurt

Instructions

  1. Cover the bottom of a 13 x 9 baking dish or 2 oblong personal size ramikins with spray oil or butter. Pre-heat either your oven or a toaster oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Wash and drain the berries for the size of dessert you need. Split six ounces for 2 personal servings or 2 quarts for the entire dessert.
  3. Take the drained berries and line the bottom of your baking vessel. Set it aside.
  4. Mix together the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. You can use 2 butter knives or a pastry blender to cut the coconut oil before adding it into the mixture. Sprinkle either the entire bowl of the oatmeal mixture over the berries in the 13 x 9 pan or, 1/3 cup of the mixture into your personal sized baking dishes. Place in the heated oven for 12-15 minutes. Let it cool for 10 minutes and then top it with either yogurt or ice cream.
  5. If you are making personal size desserts, you can store the rest of the oatmeal mixture in a storage container in the fridge up to 1 month.

Fast and healthy

The best part of this recipe is its flexibility. You can make this gluten-free with corn flakes and use an gluten-free flour. You can pump up the coconut taste by just adding some shredded coconut, 1/2 cup will do. For that matter, any fruit available will do, including frozen fruits you may have available.

In the summer, I double the topping part of the recipe and store it in the fridge. When I get home from my local Farmer's Market, I can have a tasty dessert in minutes!

You can find Sweet Leaf most anywhere nowadays. It has 2/3 less calories than sugar. Stevia is a natural product extracted from the plant. It can be overbearing when used alone so the Sweet Leaf mixture is brillant. It has a nice balance of both flavors. If you prefer to use all sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar works nicely too. I love desserts that are healthy AND guilt-free!
