So summer finally hit in Chicago like 2 weeks ago and man am I soaking in every second of it because I know what’s just around the corner. To me the summer has the very best produce, whether it’s tomatoes, zucchinis, fresh berries or just being able to grow fresh herbs. There’s nothing wrong with cold weather produce but I’m just sick of it because the winters here are just so flippin long, seriously!! I’ve been trying to bake a ton and just cook and grill up every chance I get just to make sure I O.D. on all these delicious fresh summer flavors, and it was no different with this Muesli Blackberry Crisp Recipe. It has few ingredients, it’s easy to make and dang is it delicious!
Of course the blackberries are amazing but DANG is the muesli crisp on top literally the icing on the cake. Bob’s Red Mill® makes a Muesli Old Fashioned Cereal and seriously it’s amazing. It’s amazing by itself much less mixed with with some butter and brown sugar and dumped all over some fresh blackberries with sugar and Grand Marnier. The Muesli is loaded with nuts, seeds, raisins and grains and I’m net even kidding when I say that it’s my new favorite breakfast.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering what those big fluffy white melty balls on top of the Muesli Blackberry Crisp Recipe are? Ok you got me, they’re a combo of salted caramel and vanilla ice cream and oh do they go marvelous with the blackberry crisp. In case you didn’t know it caramel and blackberries go exceptionally well together so why not have caramel flavor in ice cream and serve it up with a blackberry crisp? Exactly, DO IT!
It’s totally acceptable also to eat it straight out of the pan 🙂
