For a super simple dessert delight that you will gobble up in seconds, try out this Creamy Strawberry Crisp recipe as soon as possible. Made mostly with easy-to-find ingredients that you probably have in your pantry right now, this strawberry crisp recipe might become your new go-to quick dessert.


A number of weeks back, the good folks at Attune Foods had reached out to me about developing a recipe using their cereals. Since I always love a good cooking challenge, I happily accepted. Soon after, two boxes of cereal arrived and the brainstorming work began.


With sweeter cereal, the only type of recipes that immediately came to were desserts. Normally, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, let alone that seemingly innate baking ability that some have. Despite all of that, I remained undeterred and forged ahead with this delectable strawberry crisp recipe.


Recipe: Creamy Strawberry Crisp


Ingredients:
1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
1/3 cup plain yogurt
2-3 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter
1-2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 dash dried ginger
1 dash nutmeg
1 cup Uncle Sam Honey Almond cereal


Instructions:
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the yogurt, peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger and nutmeg.


Gently fold the strawberries into the yogurt-peanut butter mixture.


Pour the strawberry mixture into a small greased baking dish. Cover with the cereal and drizzle honey over top if desired.


Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbling.


Quick Notes:
Be sure to serve this warm straight out of the oven, and this does not stash very well in the refrigerator.


Variations:
You can make this strawberry crisp with frozen strawberries if you would like. Also, feel free to add more sweetener if desired as well. I didn’t use salt in this recipe because my peanut butter is salted, but be sure to add a small pinch if you use unsalted peanut butter. For added strawberry flavor, use strawberry-flavored yogurt in this recipe.


Diet (other): Reduced fat


Meal type: dessert




Consider yourself forewarned on the flavor and consistency of this crisp recipe. The yogurt and the peanut butter add a distinct light creamy taste that might overpower the strawberries if you’re not careful. I happened to enjoy the unique flavor combination, but you may want to tone back on the peanut butter if you think it will hide the strawberry flavor.


Overall though, I was pleased with how this dish came out. Think of it as a cross between a traditional crisp recipe and baked oatmeal. It had just enough sweetness to keep me interested, but not overwhelming so. I like desserts with more than just straight-ahead sweetness going on, and this strawberry crisp recipe definitely fit that bill.


Your turn: What is your favorite way to cook/bake with strawberries?
