A sweet treat!
4 cups blackberries
4 Tbs unbleached AP flour
3 Tbs granulated sugar
3 Tbs Earth Balance or other vegan butter substitute
1 cup unbleached AP flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup Earth Balance or other vegan butter substitute
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbs ground flaxseed
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Rinse and drain blackberries and let them dry.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 9″ x 9″ baking dish with 1 Tbs of the Earth Balance.
Pour blackberries into a bowl and gently mix with the 4 Tbs flour and 3 Tbs sugar to coat.
Pour berries into prepared baking dish and dot with 2 Tbs Earth Balance.
Put all remaining ingredients into another bowl and mix with your hands or two forks until mixture resembles large breadcrumbs. Don’t over mix; there should be pea-sized pieces of coated butter in the mixture.
Pour the mixture over the berries. Pat down, just with your finger tips or the back of a spoon; it shouldn’t be packed down tightly.
Bake for 35 minutes or so, until top is golden brown and crispy and berry mixture is bubbling.
Serve warm with vegan vanilla ice cream.
