Have I mentioned that I love dessert…?

I especially love it when its quick and easy. Because this recipe uses frozen fruit, it can be pulled together at a moments notice with stuff you can keep on hand in your pantry and freezer.

 And, get this…its good for you!

With anti-oxidant rich berries, whole oats, no refined sugar and whole wheat flour, this is a dessert that loves you back!

mixed berries, thawed (about 32 oz)

3 Tablespoons maple syrup

1 Tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 cup whole cane sugar*

*(you can sub brown sugar/whole cane sugar is a less processed option)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1  3/4 cups rolled oats
