Note:

  • Berries: You can use any berry or a combination of berries that you have on hand. You can also use frozen berries, in which case skip rinsing them, just toss all the ingredients together.
  • If you have nut allergy replace almond flour with regular flour. You can also skip adding nuts, I add it for added texture and crunch.
  • You can also use just oats, sugar and oil for the crumble, in which case just adjust the quantity of oat, add about 1/2 cup more.
