Raw Berry Crisp --a whole foods recipe
I love this because it is quick, natural, and happens to be gluten free!
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.
