  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseeds, toasted (see Tip)
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup chopped walnuts

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw fruit, if frozen (do not drain). Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, combine blueberries, cherries, 2 tablespoons flour, and the honey. Divide blueberry mixture among eight 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups or spoon blueberry mixture into a 1½-quart casserole.
  2. Place toasted flaxseeds in a spice grinder and pulse until ground to a fine powder. In a medium bowl, stir together ground flaxseeds, oats, walnuts, 2 tablespoons flour, the brown sugar, and oil. Sprinkle over fruit mixture.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes for ramekins or custard cups or 25 to 30 minutes for casserole or until topping is golden and fruit mixture is bubbly around edges. Serve warm. If desired, serve with frozen yogurt.
  • Tips: To toast flaxseeds, place in a small dry skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir until the seeds are fragrant and begin to pop.
  • If using a sugar substitute, we recommend Sweet 'N Low® Brown or Sugar Twin® Granulated Brown. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 2 tablespoons brown sugar.
