I’d use a bag of frozen mixed berries, craisins for the dates and add a dash of vanilla & some oatmeal to the crumble. Looks like this would be easy for church – NO BAKE! I don’t have a food processor so would just buy a couple of small bags of pre-chopped nuts or use my little nut grinder. This may be our dessert on Sunday as I’ve already got all the stuff to throw it together. I think this recipe is one I got from Whole Foods.
Raw Berry Crisp
Rich nuts and sweet dates make a tasty topping for mixed berries in this no-cook version of berry crisp.
6 cups mixed berries, such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and sliced strawberries
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, more or less to taste depending on sweetness of berries
1 cup raw pecans
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup pitted dates, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a (7- x 11-inch) dish, toss berries with maple syrup. Put pecans, walnuts, dates and cinnamon into a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Scatter nut mixture over berries and serve immediately, or chill until ready to serve.
