I love crisps because they are easy and quick to make and taste delicious. I always use fresh berries but frozen will do as well. What is special is the topping which is oatmeal, oat flour, and flaxmeal with spices and nuts or seeds. This dish serves as a dessert in the evenings, a snack in the afternoon or a sweet and filling breakfast!
For filling: Thaw fruit if frozen. Do not drain. Choose the kind of berries desired or mix them. Place fruit in an 8 x 1 1/2 inch round baking dish. Stir in sugar.
For topping: in a mixing bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flaxmeal or oatbran flour, and the spice of choice. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts and/or seeds. Sprinkle topping over filling.
Bake in 375 degree oven for 30-35 minutes (40 minutes for thawed fruit)or until fruit is tender and topping is golden. Serve warm with ice cream or low fat frozen yogurt if desired. Serves 4-8
