Healthy Fruit Crisp

Prep & Cook Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings

5 cups mixed fruit (berries and stonefruits work best)
3 Tbsp chia seeds
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 tsp baking powder
1-2 Tbsp hemp seeds (optional)
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup peanut butter

Directions:Chop fruit into bite-sized pieces.Transfer to either a crockpot or a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle with chia seeds and stir to combine. (You can also combine the fruit and chia seeds in a bowl but I find that a lot of the seeds stick to the bowl when you go to transfer it to the slow cooker or pan). In a small bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, flax, baking powder and hemp seeds and stir to combine. Cut butter into small chunks and add to the flour mixture. Cut in with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add peanut butter and stir until coated with flour. Use your hands to mix everything together really well and crumble the peanut butter and butter so it combines with all of the flour and oats. Sprinkle crumble mixture over top of fruit.Cook at 350 for 40 minutes in the oven or 2-2.5 hours on high in the slow cooker.Serve over yogurt or cottage cheese, or topped with ice cream.
