Raspberry Blackberry Fruit Crisp

Sometimes a recipe comes out of a necessity to use some ingredients up.  I grab berries on occasion and had froze some to prevent them from spoiling.  I was already doing some baking, so the oven was already heated up, and I decided to find a new way to bake up some berries.  I was going to a family get together that evening, and decided to bake a fruit crisp as my dad is always a fan.  It seemed like an easy way to make a dessert and use up those berries.

I just decided to toss the berries in a casserole, throw some toppings on, and see how it came out.  My father is a big fan of fruit crisps and cobblers, so I figured oatmeal over the top would make a great dessert for a family get together.

First things first, I spread some raspberries and blackberries in a casserole.

After I poured a bit of orange juice over the berries and sprinkled some sugar over the top.  Blackberries aren't the sweetest of berries, so I knew some orange juice and sugar would sweeten them up a bit.

In a small bowl, I mixed some butter, brown sugar, oatmeal, and cinnamon.

Next, I spooned the oatmeal mixture over it.

I put it in the oven to bake for 20 minutes.

Easy, easy, easy!  Though I love the meticulous recipes that take time and effort like Galaktoboureko, a quick throw-together dessert like this one is a great choice as well.  This could even work for a nice sweet breakfast dish.  With such basic ingredients as fruit, oatmeal, and a bit of butter and sugar, this one has enough of the healthy stuff to squeeze some vitamins into the day.  The end result was pie-like and quite sweet, but without all the extra ingredients.  When you have some extra fruit you need to use up, try this one out.
