This recipe was inspired by a “Hungry Girl” recipe (apple icobbler), but I was lacking some ingredients, so I made adjustments. It was a little bit of a hassle because I had to use the blender to grind the dry ingredients and I dropped the heavy base on my foot while getting it out of the cabinet (ouch!). Otherwise it was easy. Since it was so hot today, I used the microwave instead of heating up the kitchen with the oven. The topping still came out crunchy, because it was made of crunchy cereal and crackers.
Try substituting other fruits such as apples or blueberries for the blackberries.
1/2 cup Fiber One Cereal (original)
*2 sheets low fat graham crackers (if you don’t have these, substitute other low calorie crackers to make about the same amount of crumbs. The double asterisked ingredients were my substitution)
**1 package 90-100 calorie cheese crackers
**1/2 oz pirates booty puffs
1 Tablespoon Stevia
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6 cups raw or frozen blackberries (washed)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup oatmeal
Grind the cereal and crackers in the blender until they are the consistency of breadcrumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a microwave safe dish and mix in the other topping ingredients. Spread the mixture in the bottom of the dish and microwave for 1 minute. Remove from the dish and put back into the blender and blend to recrumble the topping.
Combine all the filling ingredients (except the oatmeal) in a deep microwave safe dish. Microwave the filling for 2 minutes. Remove, stir and taste to determine if additional sweetener is needed (if so, add sugar or artificial sweetener to taste). Return to the microwave for 2 minutes, then stir in oatmeal and sprinkle the topping over the top of the filling. Microwave for 2 more minutes.
