This is a lovely little recipe. You can have a play with this and add stuff as you think fit and to suit your needs. It is intended as a breakfast dish but can easily be adapted or used as-is for a main meal or desert.
If you make this in a 1.5 litre casserole dish you will get three or four servings from it, depending on your appetite and needs.
Half a casserole dish Mixed Berries – use whatever you fancy, whatever is in season, frozen or fresh. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries etc
2 large/3 small apples, chopped or sliced
150g or a good handful. raisins – black or golden
A good sprinkling of cinnamon depending on taste (suggest 2 – 4 tsp)
A sprinkling of nutmeg depending on taste (suggest 1 – 2 tsp)
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190°C/375°F
Smear a 1.5 litre casserole dish with with coconut oil. Half fill with a mixture of Berries. Sprinkle some of the cinnamon over the berries and add the raisins. Mix them up well and add the chopped apple. Sprinkle with the rest of the cinnamon and the nutmeg.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes.
As I said, you can play around with this recipe.
If you’re not dieting and want something sweeter, you can add a spoonful of honey, a squirt of agave or similar to the berry mix.
A handful of flaked almonds will add some extra protein and some crunch to the finished article.
Covering the top with jumbo-oats and spraying with water before baking will create a healthily fruit crumble. Of course, you can top it with a crumble mix for a less healthy desert.
Sometimes, I will mix the oats with the berries, a a little water (maybe 80ml) and bake with the lid on for 30 minutes then another 20 minutes with the lid off. This creates a sort of fruit porridge.
