Thank you for your Birthday Wishes! I had a pretty low key day since we both worked, but the evening was fun. The restaurant we wanted to go to was closed on Mondays, so we are going tonight instead. We made Channa Masala together (using this recipe) and I opened a few gifts!

One of which was a 5 in 1 Reflector Kit for my photography. I’m so excited to use this! [nerd alert]

You can expand it over 10 feet and it also lowers to the ground too, which is the height I will use the most. It has silver, black, white, gold, and diffusion.

It will be lots of fun playing around with this thing!

Or for spontaneous animal shows when my nephews arrive in July??? ;)

I also got some kitchen stuff that will be appearing on the blog shortly I’m sure. :)

Oh, and we also shared the last piece of the delicious Whole Food’s Vegan Chocolate Cake, complete with Coconut Bliss ‘ice cream’. :)

YUM!!!

Now back to this delicious berry crisp that I made for my party on Saturday! I thought a raw crisp would be more Spring-like and fun to serve chilled instead of warm. It turned out great and the recipe was so easy to throw together.

This dessert couldn’t be easier! Just prep the berries, topping, and add into a casserole dish!

Voila :)

This crisp does not keep well overnight, so please be sure to mix it just prior to serving. The leftovers the next day were quite watery because there is no corn starch or arrowroot powder to soak up the water.

Enjoy with Coconut Bliss Vanilla Bean ‘ice cream’ or your favourite frozen dessert.

Have a great Tuesday!

Oooh very cool reflector kit!! Isn’t it so annoying how some restaurants aren’t open on Mondays? I’ve discovered that a couple of times recently as well. I am so glad you posted this recipe because it was SO delicious! I’m glad you two had fun last night, and enjoy your Italian tonight! A 4-day birthday is awesome!

Oh man I must make this! It would follow great after a Panzanella!! The perfect fresh summer meal! I am wondering what I could use to sub out the Pecan though, Do you think Hazel nuts would be okay or would you just double the walnuts? We dont have Pecans in Italy ;( I always have to figure out what else to use. (its not easy to replace a pecan).

Grazie!
Sabs.

What a healthy spin on fruit crisp! I’ve been craving a good crisp lately that’s not laden with fat.
Thanks for sharing :D

mmmmm looks amazing! although probably not technically raw, as even uncooked oats are usually steamed before they’re rolled & cut!

Angela it looks wonderful!

I love!!! the 1st pic. Truly a spectacular shot! I love that Eric helps you with your photo shoots and setting things up. The biggest “help” that Scott can give to me when Im shooting food is to….get lost! haha! “Dont bother me, Im busy”..famous last words of mine!

The recipe looks great. I make a raw, well no-bake, vegan apple crumble. It’s got oats, almond flour, dates, brown sugar, agave, as part of the crumble topping and the crust too. Slightly different rations and it’s funny, that crumble gets BETTER as time passes, not more watery. Cooking is such an experiment, isn’t it! I want to experiment with your recipe next :)

This looks so good–and summery! If I didn’t eat the last of my berries I’d want to make this.

that light reflector is awesome!!! Your photography has evolved so much over the years and keeps on getting better. :) it’s absolutely stunning. I love crisps and I hate waiting for them to bake so this will be perfect for me since I can just dig right in. :D
Maybe you can add chia seeds to soak up the liquid?? or flax?? I’m going to experiment!

Happy Belated Birthday! Have a great time going out to dinner tonight! I just came across your blog and am really excited about it because this month I am test driving a Vegan diet. I LOVE it so far. I bought Rhubarb this weekend because I knew I wanted to make a crisp of some sort. This recipe is perfect for it. Thank you!!! Have a beautiful day :)

Such an neat, simple party idea for the summer! I love the low-sugar aspect, too. Summers make me want everything lighter and more “natural” or raw in taste.

Looks like a successful birthday! How was the WF vegan chocolate cake? As good and homemade?

The crisp looks great! It’s totally cold here right now (at least for me), but it would be excellent in a couple of months when it warms a bit.

That crisp looks so summery I cant wait to make it! Hopefully next weekend I’ll be able to get to the farmers market and get some good fruits :)

Your bday sounds like it was tons of fun also! Sometimes it’s just nice to relax at home and have dinner and open gifts. And who wouldn’t love opening the reflector kit! I have no clue what it’s for but it looks so professional and fun! Especially the animal creatures that lingered around ;)

54 Ashley May 17, 2011

This crisp looks so good! I love spring– it makes me crave, much more than in winter, for more fruits and veggies. I’m definitely putting this on my list of things to try! I’ve been wanting to try that Coconut Bliss ‘ice cream’– but I don’t know which flavor to try first! Any suggestions?

Do you ever cook/bake with coconut sugar? It is FABULOUS! Tastes like brown sugar (no coconut flavor) with a hint of carmel. I use it to replace other sugar in most recipes because the glycemic index is so low (only 35!). If you haven’t already, you should give it a try!

Hi Angela,

I make this recipe from the WF site. Actually I refrigerate and it lasts me about 3 or 4 days. The fruit does get a little soggy, but not much, but the flavor with the Maple Syrup added makes it so juicy and sweet. I put it in my yogurt, or heat up in the microwave with a dollop of whip cream, put it on ice cream, I even have put it in my oatmeal. So for me, I don’t mind it sitting in the fridge for a few days.

Happy Be-lated Birthday!!! By the way how are you doing on your garden? Have you decided on what plants to plant?

95 Angela (Oh She Glows) May 18, 2011

I know this is an old post, but I thought I would go ahead and comment anyway :)

I made this yesterday morning for an Easter brunch and all of the non-vegans of my boyfriend’s family gobbled it up! I had a little more than a servings worth leftover when the brunch was over. Not wanting to waste any of it I put it on top of a batch of steel cut oats this morning for breakfast, and it was delicious! I agree that it gets a bit too mushy overnight, but the consistency still worked beautifully as a topping to the oats.

I figured I would post my findings in the comment section in case anyone else happens to have a bit leftover, and is wondering what they can possibly do with it :)

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and
say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring
blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for rookie blog writers?
I’d definitely appreciate it.
