Fruit Mixture

  • 1/2 large apple, thinly sliced (I used a mutsu apple)
  • 1/2 TBS maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup mixed berries, fresh or frozen


  • 1 1/2 TBS vegan butter spread or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 TBS light muscovado sugar, or light brown sugar
  • 3 TBS rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 TBS almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • ice cream for serving, optional


  • Toss sliced apples, maple syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon and ginger together. Arrange apple slices in a shallow, microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle berries on top of apples. If you are using frozen berries, run it through warm water to quickly defrost and give them a gentle squeeze to wring out excess water.
  • In another bowl, mix melted vegan spread, sugar, oats, almond flour, cinnamon, and ground ginger together. The mixture should feel gritty. Sprinkle the mixture over the fruits.
  • Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. If the berry juices are bubbling, the crisp is done. If the crisp isn't quite ready yet, microwave it for another 30 seconds. All microwaves are different, so make sure to check at around the 1 1/2 minute mark for doneness.
  • Use a pot holder or oven mitt to remove crisp from the microwave. The bowl will be HOT! Serve with a scoop of vegan ice cream if you like.


1. Adapted from Averie Cooks. [br][br]2. You can also use butter for the crisp if you're not making a vegan version.[br][br]3. I like to use muscovado sugar for cooking because it's less refined. However, regular brown sugar will work very well here too.[br][br]4. If you don't have any almond flour on hand, gluten-free all-purpose flour or regular all-purpose flour will work too.
