Blackberry Blueberry Peanut Butter Thyme Crisp

Wonderful British fruit season is in full swing and I wanted to make a simple dessert which celebrates their abundance and juicy goodness. 
And this is so simple – blackberries collected from the garden, some extra blueberries for good measure, topped with a simple but absolutely delicious peanut butter oat crispy topping. The combination of sweet fruits and crunchy melting topping – a match made in heaven.

I’ve added some fresh thyme and I think it pairs really well with the berries and the nutty topping.
Eat it warm out of the oven with creamy ice cream or coconut yogurt and I love to add even more fresh thyme.

Or scoop into a bowl and pour over cold plant based milk for a delicious breakfast option.

Swaps –

  • You can use any seasonal fruit – I love cherries, strawberries or even peaches or nectarines.

I hope you love it as much as me, it’s super easy to make, kids will love it and its perfect for both dessert or breakfast.
