Blueberry-Mango “Crisp”

3 WWPP Posted by 9 years ago 15 Comments

Thank Dani for this one! I saw her luscious looking Mango-Ginger-Blueberry Crisp and raided my kitchen to duplicate. I say duplicate but what I really mean is experiment. Those that know me know it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to follow a recipe. Really, it may be my fatal flaw.

So I used what I had and tried to lighten it up a bit. I’m totally happy with the result but I’m not sure a purest would call it a “crisp”. Let’s just say its a sweet fruity individual dessert with a topping?? Whatever, I liked it!

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries washed (148g)
  • 1 mango cubed (see video on mango cutting technique)
  • 2 tbsp honey separated (21g each)
  • 1 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp nutmeg separated
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon separated
  • 1/8 cup quick oats (10g)
  • 1/8 cup bran (8g)
  • 1/8 cup grape-nuts cereal (14g)
  • 1 tsp olive oil (5g)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

In a medium bowl combine the blueberries, mango, 1 tbsp honey, flour, lemon juice, ¼ tsp nutmeg, and ¼ tsp cinnamon. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the quick oats, bran, grape-nuts, oil, ½ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp nutmeg and remaining tbsp of honey. Work with a spoon until topping comes together.

Equally distribute the blueberry-mango mixture into 4 individual custard or tart pans. Top with the cereal mixture and bake for about 20 minutes. Serve with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or fat free whipped topping!

Note: I’m glad I’m posting this the next day. The grape-nuts, although crispy when hot out of the oven did not hold their crispness the next day. Don’t get me wrong, still good! just not crispy.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    August 3, 2008 are so funny (the husband on camera in the last 2 seconds) make me laugh. This dessert looks divine. Thanks again, for all your hard work.

    I assume that's meant to be a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon, not a quarter cup? :) These look so good. I'm always on the lookout for desserts that taste great and don't use butter or refined sugar.

    Hey Roni! Happy to know I could offer up a little inspiration:)... your crisp sounds great, I love the individual serving sizes (very wise). Hope you had a great weekend!

    Hi Roni, These look really good and I can't wait to try them. Thank you for sharing your video with us.

    This looks great! We have been eating peaches like crazy, I might try it with that. Love the husband clip.

    Longtime viewer, first time commentor. I have had a canary melon. It's been awhile but if memory serves me correct, I thought it to be a bit like a pear/honeydew-ish taste...if that makes any sense! Also congrats on your running. I too have started running within the past year. Just ran a local 10K for the second year and shaved 9 minutes off my time. It's amazing how addicting it can be!

    Mmmmm looks great! Reminds me of a WW recipe I have of Apple Crisp with Low Fat Nilla Wafers...good and crispy. Now I need to find it! Thanks Roni for the work you do here!

    Looks really good. I may try it with peaches as those are in season. I also have some frozen mango from Aldi's. Do you know how many grams of mango you used? I might try it with the frozen. I love the individual servings. As far as the crispyness goes I don't think anything is going to keep the crispyness after being refrigerated for a day or so. You know the condensation thing. As always thanks.

    looks very yummy! We have been doing light desserts these days so this will be a good one for my list. Thanks! Your little guy is such a cutie :) My Gracie (3 1/2) is a talker too :)

    Thanks for the recipe looks good! I like your site!

    I made this last night and it was good.My husband even ate one and liked it! However, I halfed the amt of nutmeg because I am not a big nutmeg fan and the taste was still a little too strong for me-may use even less next time. I also made your sesame chicken and broccoli recipe and it was the real star last night!My sixteen yr old son loved it and he never likes anything I cook.I also made a batch with chicken and bell peppers in place of the broccoli for husband who hates broccoli and he loved it!

    I made this yesterday Roni (using blueberries & peaches, because I had left four that weren't getting eaten fast enough) and it was fabulous! I kind of doubled and baked it in a 9x9 to feed us all (6) and it was a hit! Yummy. Now hubbie doesn't like anything that doesn't have a pound of butter and/or chocolate so that is QUITE an accomplishment for you Roni!

    This recipe was fabulous!! Very pretty - next time I'll make a huge batch. I did put it all in a small baking dish rather than individual bowls and that worked fine. The video on how to cut a mango was very helpful. I didn't end up with a ton of mush. :) Thanks, Roni!

    Made this last night - it is awesome. I accidentally made it w/ 2 mangoes, but oh well. The ice cream is necessary - love the hot/cold thing. My husband enjoyed it too. I might have to switch it up a little this fall and use cranberries & apples. Oooo- pears!

    I have tried a couple of variations of this recipe over the last 2 weeks with rave reviews from the hubby and kids! First was with apples instead of the mango and blueberry, the second was with strawberries and rhubarb, for this one i left out the nutmeg and lemon juice and added 2 tbsps of brown sugar as the rhubarb is a little tart. Thanks for this recipe Roni this is so versatile, just pick a fruit and add the crumble topping!
