No-Bake Berry Crumble

Breakfast, Snack, or Dessert? You decide!

Hey guys, how are you? I hope you’ve had a nice start to your week. Mine has been great. I took an amazing Zumba class on Monday and today I decided to get my dance on with my Xbox Kinect Dance Central. I think this is one of the best games out there for calorie-burning (and not to mention, it’s so much fun, you’ll be amazed how quickly time goes by when you’re doing it). Tomorrow’s planned workout is my new obsession: Bikram yoga!

I came across an incredible recipe on my Whole Foods Ipad app. I cannot begin to put into words how delicious this one is. The fact that you can have this dish for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert makes it a winner in my book. Plus, it literally took me less than 10 minutes to make (there’s no baking involved)!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for about 5 servings:

  • 4 cups of fresh mixed berries (I used strawberries and blackberries)
  • 1/2 cup of dates (if you use non-pitted dates, you’ll have to remove the pits)
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of pecans
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or more if you love it like I do)

Remove pits from dates and chop into small pieces.
