Berry Crumble



This is one of my son’s favorite dessert recipes (he has several…haha!). He has been asking me to make this for a few weeks. When I saw the frozen berries were on sale, I snagged a few bags!

This is not a health food, per say, but it is way better than processed frozen desserts or pies. Which is the goal of all of you following my 6 week plan to detox your diet. And the berries give it a shot of antioxidants and fiber.

I would usually use organic frozen berries, but they a tad expensive right now (like $14 for all the berries it would take to make this recipe!). I did, however, use organic evaporated cane sugar and organic butter. I also used King Arthur Unbleached All Purpose Flour, which is only enriched with b vitamins and does not contain bleach or over processed garbage.

Here is the recipe:

Berry Crumble (adapted from Weight Watchers as seen on Dr. Oz)

2-12 oz. packages of frozen mixed berries, thawed

1 cup of unbleached all purpose flour

2/3 cup packed light brown sugar

7 Tablespoons salted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place berries in an 8 inch baking dish.

Mix flour and brown sugar together in a medium bowl. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of flour/sugar mixture over berries. Toss a little to coat.

Pour melted butter over the rest of the flour/sugar mixture and mix until well moistened.

Crumble mixture over the berries.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.

Pay no attention to my horrible looking fingers…I definitely need to give myself a manicure.

We like to add a little dollop of freshly whipped organic cream to ours…

but a little frozen yogurt would be amazing also!
