Chocoberry Crumble

What better way to celebrate the bounty of fresh fruit during summer than with a crumble? Maybe one that includes chocolate??

Berries are ridiculously healthy and delicious, but also highly perishable. They generally only last in the fridge a few days. Just DO NOT throw out your over-ripe, mushy berries! They are still perfectly good for baking with.

For most recipes, you can always use frozen berries if you don't have any fresh available.

1 lb strawberries, halved
1 pint blueberries
1 pint raspberries
2 tbls whole wheat flour
1/4 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips

1.5 cups oats
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tbls whole wheat flour
1/4 cup agave syrup
2 tbls coconut oil, melted

In large bowl, toss berries with flour and chocolate chips. Turn into large, greased baking dish.

Combine dry ingredients for topping in medium bowl. Stir in syrup and oil and mix until combined. Spread topping over berry mixture. Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes. Serve plain or with chocolate ice cream or frozen yogurt.
