Today is Friday and it means… we are all getting ready for this weekend’s treat! Or is it just me? I’m usually a very good girl during the week when it comes to eating healthy and nutritious foods so I allow myself a little cheat or two during the weekend. Because life would be so boring without a few cheat meals, right?! I’m not saying I’m going overboard and binging on pizza and soda. And now is probably not the right time to mention these delicious homemade cheeseburgers Solal makes so well and that I can’t resist. Don’t even ask about it, I won’t tell anything. Sooo what I mean by cheat meal is that I’ll just eat a little bit less healthy than usual. I’ll eat this Mango and Strawberry Crisp for instance. I usually don’t eat gluten and keep my carbs low but once in a while, I’ll just indulge.

Ok so let’s talk about this mango + strawberry combo for a second. Have you ever tried it guys? Three words: OUT.OF.THIS.WORLD. Whoops, that was four actually. Anyway, mango + strawberry is more than delicious. Words fail me to describe it. Can someone out there invent more synonyms for delicious? Well, you get it, it is very very good. It has already made an appearance on this blog with the mango and strawberry yogurt parfait and today, I’m giving you the warm summer dessert version of it. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Ingredients

Filling

  • 3 cups mango cubed (see notes)
  • 3 cups strawberries quartered (see notes)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey optional - if the fruits are not sweet enough

Topping

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats aka rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup flour white or whole wheat
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together mango, strawberries, arrowroot, lemon juice and honey. Transfer into a 9x9 baking dish.
  3. In a small sauce pan, combine butter and honey. Melt over a very gentle heat and mix well.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. When honey and butter are melted, pour over oat mixture and mix well. Sprinkle oat mixture with fruits. By this time, the oats should be cool enough to handle. Use your hands, it will make it easier to distribute the topping evenly.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruits are bubbly. Remove from the oven, set aside for about 10 minutes to allow the crisp to set a bit and serve warm (with a scoop of vanilla ice cream?).

Recipe Notes

You can use fresh or frozen fruits. If you use frozen fruits, let them thawed a bit and drain the water that'll come with them before proceeding.
