Berry Crumble

I love dessert!! With fall right around the corner we are almost to pie (every night) time!!! LOL but seriously I love pie and this is my go to when the cravings hit.  This berry crumble is perfect because if you make it in a ramekin it'll be portioned out for you...making it very challenging to overeat.  I like to use a mix of whatever frozen berries I have on hand but if you want to use fresh by all means do it to it!  For the ones I made in the picture I used a mix of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries...I bought a giant bag of frozen berries at Costco.  For the granola I just searched through the bulk bins at the grocery store, it's waaaay cheaper to buy your granola from the bins than in a box.  I chose a maple almond granola not going to lie it's quite tasty!!  Also if you're wondering arrowroot is, it's what will thicken up the berry mixture =)  So without further ado here's how you make it!!  This recipe will make 2 servings.

 2 Cups Frozen or Fresh Berries
1/4 Cup Granola
1 Tbsp Arrowroot
2 Tbsp Water
2 Tsp Honey

Preheat your oven to 375.  Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper and place your 2 ramekins on top of it...this will limit any oven mess and hopefully any counter mess too!  Mix together your water and arrowroot and stir the mixture in to your berries until they are coated.  Split the berries between your two ramekins.  Top berries with granola and drizzle with honey.  Slide everything into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.  Pull them out and let them cool a bit then enjoy!  If you're feeling naughty go ahead and top your berry crumble with some french vanilla ice cream...I won't judge I did it and it's amazing!! =)
