Makeover Monday ~ Berry Crumble

image_pdfimage_print
It is  Monday, so it is time for another recipe makeover. I love to take favorite recipes and make them THM friendly. One of the biggest hurdles people have to overcome is thinking that healthy eating means never having their favorite foods again. The truth is that you can make a healthy version of almost any meal. And most meals don’t require that much work to re-make!
This week I am making over a Berry Crumble recipe from Food Network. I love a good berry pie, cobbler, crumble or crisp. This recipe does not disappoint! It is perfectly wonderful on it’s own, it would be absolutely heavenly over ice cream. May I suggest Brianna’s Scoop-able Vanilla?

Berry Crumble ~ THM S

Ingredients

Crust

1/2 cup baking blend
1/2 cup xes sweetener or gentle sweet
1 tsp black strap molasses
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch mineral salt
1/2 cup oats
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

Filling

4 cups mixed berries (frozen or fresh, I used frozen)
1/2 cup xes sweetener or gentle sweet
1 tablespoon oat fiber
1 tsp glucomannan whisked into 2 TBSP of water (For little jobs like this I highly recommend a frother like this one. I love this little tool!)

Equipment: 6 (6-ounce) ramekins or 8×8 square pan (Directions for making a 9×13 pan below)

Directions

      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
      1. In a large bowl combine baking blend, gentle sweet, molasses, cinnamon, salt and oats. Using a  food processor, pastry blender, a fork or your hands cut in butter. Keep cold until ready to use. I used a food processor and blended everything but the oats together. Then I added the oats and pulsed a few times so they were not totally broken up.
      1. In a small bowl whisk together the sweetener and oat fiber to combine.
      1. In a large bowl toss the berries with the sweetener/oat fiber mixture. Evenly divide the fruit mixture between the 6 ramekins or pour into 8×8 baker.
      1. Pour water/glucomannan mixture over berry mixture. Top with crumble topping.
    1. Bake until top is golden and fruit is bubbly, about 35 minutes. Serve warm.

Changes to Make a 9×13 Pan of Berry Crisp

Normally I would suggest just doubling the recipe, but while you can just double the filling in this recipe, doubling the crust would be too much, so here is the way to make a bigger pan. (And you’re probably going to want to!)

Ingredients

Crust

3/4 cup baking blend
2/4 cup xes sweetener or gentle sweet
1.5 tsp black strap molasses
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 pinches mineral salt
3/4 cup oats
8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

Filling

8 cups mixed berries
1 cup xes sweetener or gentle sweet
2 tablespoons oat fiber
2 tsp glucomannan whisked into 1/4 cup of water (For little jobs like this I highly recommend a frother like this one. I love this little tool!)

The directions remain entirely the same. 🙂
