Although I like to think of myself as a fairly healthy eater,  I love an indulgence every once in a while.  Sometimes you just need a little dessert after dinner, righhhhht?!

I know I cannot claim this granola berry crisp to be super healthy, but I will say that it is much lighter than some desserts.  And, it is perfect for a summer treat!

MIXED BERRY CRISP

*makes 2 small crisps

2 cups mixed berries

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1/4 cup sugar

dash of almond extract

crumble topping

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup flour

1/2 Organic Honey Pecan granola

Preheat oven to 350ºF.  In a mixing bowl, whip the butter and sugar together.  Add almond extract and flour and mix in well.  Finally, add the granola and fold in.  Set aside.

In a small baking dish, layer berries until the pan is about 3/4 full.  Grab the bowl of crumble and sprinkle it on.  Pat down slightly.

Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until crumble starts to turn golden brown.  Allow the granola berry crisp to cool for 10 minutes before eating.
