Ingredients

5 cups mixed fresh blueberries, strawberries and blackberries (4 6-ounce containers)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
⅓ cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
⅓ cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick or instant oats)
⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional, to reduce liquid)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, toss together the blueberries, raspberries and lemon juice. You may add 1 tablespoon of corn starch to fruit mixture to reduce baking liquid from forming in tray. Transfer to a 1½-quart baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the almonds, coconut, oats, nutmeg, cinnamon, and honey. Use your fingertips to combine together, and then sprinkle evenly over the berries.
  3. Bake until the crisp topping is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
