Ingredients

Crust and Crumble Topping:

  • 2-1/4 cups white whole wheat flour can substitute with all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup butter cold & cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Filling:

  • 2 cups mixed berries I used fresh blueberries and blackberries but you can substitute with frozen
  • 1-1/2 cup fresh sweet cherries pitted and chopped (can also use frozen)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line an 8x8 or 9x9-inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the berries and cherries with sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice, and toss to coat. Set aside while you prepare the crumble.

  3. Make the crumble: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, sugars, baking powder, and salt. With a fork, pastry cutter, or your fingertips, cut butter into flour mixture together until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Press a little bit more than half of the crumble into the bottom of your prepared pan, patting it down evenly.

  5. Evenly distribute berry mixture over the crust, smoothing it lightly with a spatula.
  6. Evenly sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over berry layer.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares or enjoy straight from the pan if desired. Store bars in an airtight container in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

**Optional - adding 1/4 cup chopped pecans, walnuts or sliced almonds to the crust would add a nice crunch if desired
