  • cup old fashioned oats
  • cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted


  • 6 cups frozen* mixed berries about two 10-oz bags
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 ½ inch deep dish pie plate or similar sized baking dish. Set aside.


  • In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugars, salt, and cinnamon. Add melted butter and stir until well combined. Transfer to the freezer for a few minutes while you assemble the fruit filling.


  • In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients. Stir gently until well combined. Dump into prepared baking dish. If using frozen berries, some of the flour/sugar might have settled on the bottom of your mixing bowl. Add it to the baking dish with the berries.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the berries (pressing some of it together with your fingers to form clumps). Bake for 40-50 minutes until the fruit is bubbling and juicy and the topping is light golden brown. Cool slightly, serve warm with vanilla ice cream.


*Keep the berries frozen. Do not thaw before assembly.
USING FRESH BERRIES: If you'd prefer to use fresh berries, use the same amount (6 cups). I recommend adding 2 tablespoons of orange juice, apple juice, or water to the fruit filling mixture. The extra liquid helps to create a sauce while the berries are cooking. The frozen berries have enough extra liquid on their own.
