Mango-Berry Crisp



My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE this dessert - "delicious", "the best ever", "mmmm" were all used in describing it and they each ate two servings. My  4 year old son plans on having it for breakfast :) Note: They did have it for breakfast (with yogourt) and begged me to make another.
Some tips: I prefer to use a shallow longer dish rather than a deep casserole dish that way you get to enjoy more crispy topping per serving!
  • Also, any fruit pretty much works and the quantities are just guide lines. Just don't over pack the dish or you may experience juice overflow and make a mess of your oven!
  • I coated the blueberries in flour so they wouldn't become too juicy.
  • Coarse sugar sprinkled on top before baking adds a great touch to this dish!

Ingredients
  • 2 mangos
  • 2 apples
  • 1-1/2 cups strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger



What to do
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Chop up mango, apples, and strawberries.
  • Place chopped fruit in medium baking dish.
  • Place blue berries in bowl and throw in a table spoon of flour. Coat berries.
  • Place berries with other fruit.
  • In another bowl, whisk flour, spices, and sugar.
  • Add oats.
  • Pour butter over flour mixture and stir until combined.
  • Drop in small amounts over fruit base until fruit is well covered.
  • If you have any course sugar, sprinkle over topping along with an extra shake of cinnamon.
  • Place in oven and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown.
