Coconut Berry Crisp

Coconut Berry Crisp

As we head into the last month of summer and our imaginations begin turning to scarves, boots, and all things pumpkin (pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies… REAL pumpkin PSLs?!). I find myself daydreaming about cool fall afternoons in the park sitting under changing leaves and sipping hot coffee, munching on a fresh batch of apple cider doughnuts with my husband while our kids are running through the leaves.

But… right now it is still 90+ degrees and in a week our oldest will start preschool! So I am trying to put my autumn daydreams aside and focus on enjoying our last week all all home together with lots of fun outings, iced lattes and heaping bowls of coconut berry crisp with a side of vanilla ice cream.

Fresh berries topped with shredded coconut and crunchy oats that are delicately spiced and sweetened with pure maple syrup. This delicious dessert is quick to pull together and a great use for leftover berries.
