I originally created this berry crisp when I went through a 10 Day Detox and wasn’t eating any refined foods or sugars including honey, maple syrup, etc. This berry crisp was a saviour! When the palate is not eating anything sweet, the taste of berries becomes incredibly sweet!!

In this version, I have added in some honey to the topping, but feel free to leave it out if you’re going the “no sugar” route. One serving of this delicious crisp will keep you pleasantly satiated.

This recipe is filled with incredible nutritional goodness …

Almonds are a great source of monounsaturated fats that are associated with heart health and protection against diabetes. They are also a good source of fiber which can help you maintain a healthy weight.

Coconut is a source of saturated fat, but as a medium-chain triglyceride, it is readily oxidized in the liver and is associated with increased satiety and energy expenditure facilitating weight control when it replaces long-chain fats from processed foods and factory-farmed meats.

Berries are commonly known as a great source of antioxidants. They are also a great low-sugar source of delicious sweetness in the diet. They are associated with providing benefits for many chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and mental health. The anti-inflammatory properties can also support your arthritis symptoms.

This is a delicious healthy dessert that the whole family will love. If you are removing all sources of sugar in your diet, feel free to leave out the honey in the topping, otherwise enjoy as is!
