Berry Good Breakfast

Remember when I told you I'd be giving you blog treats all day?
Well, apparently, fruit is very good for you ;-)
But it's also delicious and this recipe tastes like home cooked pie -- so technically this is a freaking treat! :)

I love breakfast. I maintain that it is the meal of the champions! Did I mention I love breakfast?

Not everybody loves breakfast as much as me... unless someone cooks for them, and then, who doesn't love breakfast?

This breakfast is pretty much like eating a fruit filled pie in the morning... without the fat-filled crust and unhealthy pie filling. 

Instead, picture this: The aroma of bubbling, slowly liquefying fruit spreads through the house and it's not long before inquiring stomachs have wandered into the room. Mission accomplished. Good morning :)





What You Need:
  • a whole lotta berries! Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries... whatever you can get your hands on. Three heaping cups will make enough for 4-5 people.
  • 1/2 heaping cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 dash of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of oats
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon basil, minced
What You Do:
  • Preheat oven to 400
  • Warm honey in the microwave, then toss with balsamic vinegar and basil and fruit in a large bowl.
  • Transfer to a casserole dish
  • In a bowl, combine whole wheat flour, browns sugar, salt, and oats
  • Knead butter into that mixture with your hands, creating a crumbly mixture
  • Sprinkle crumbly mixture over fruit
  • Put in the oven for 30 minutes or until top is beginning to harden
  • Serve!
