Berries are definitely “super-foods” – beautifully vibrant and loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins & minerals – so much goodness packed into such a small fruit!
Instead of the traditional summer berries…strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, you may want to try different types of berries like loganberries, lingonberries, acai berries, boysenberries, cranberries, elderberries, gooseberries, goji berries, huckleberries…etc. Not all berries are safe to eat though…check first before taking a bite. Here is a good list.
- Rinse berries in a colander and place into a large mixing bowl. Coat the berries with agave nectar and toss to coat evenly. Transfer berries to a baking dish (9×13). Set aside.
- In a food processor, combine the pecans, walnuts, cinnamon, oats and brown sugar. Pulse three or four times.
- Sprinkle above mixture onto berries (evenly). Serve immediately or place in refrigerator to chill. A scoop of fresh homemade whipped cream or vanilla (soy) ice cream tastes great on top of the berries!
