Strawberry Oat Crumble

This dessert is so easy that it can be made any night on its own, as a topping for cake, or even as a pie filling or as part of a parfait. Talk about flexible!

It's made with whole fruit and quick oats, and is totally adaptable to whatever fruit you have available or have a taste for.

Strawberry & Oat Crumble
1 lb (1 bag) frozen whole strawberries
1 Tbsp organic light brown sugar (less if your fruit is sweet)
2/3 cups quick cooking oats
2 Tbsp butter
pinch each : cinnamon and allspice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup organic light brown sugar

In a sauce pan with a lid heat strawberries and 1 Tbsp of organic light brown sugar, covered over medium heat until warm and bubbly.

Meanwhile melt 2 Tbsp butter. Combine oats, spices, and remaining light brown sugar in a bowl. Pour melted butter into the bowl and stir well.

Combine strawberries and oat crumble. Makes a great topping over ZERO FAT angel cake slices!
