Added oats with milk and fruit. Mixed remaining ingredients together.
Sprinkled on top. Baked. I could have eaten all of it. SO Good.

I am not sure why it's necessary to bake this. It's perfect just raw. Yummy!! Plus, if you don't bake it, you avoid acrylamide formation.

I think Ivana was referring to the chemical change food undergoes when browned, forming acrylamides which are indeed known to be carcinogenic. The darker something is browned, the higher the content. At least, that is my understanding. This is why we prefer to steam veggies than roast or grill them, and is also why you'll notice a lot of the desserts are cooked at lower temps to avoid unnecessarily browning them. Hope that helps, and if you want more info I bet there is an article in the member's library.

I don't know how to see when the top is slightly browned because if you mix oat mixture thoroughly into the blended berries as directed it all turns blue. I never was able to get it to "crisp" even after letting it bake for 35 minutes.
Even so, it was very good.
If you want something simpler and quicker try the Quick Banana Berry breakfast To Go. We like it about as much as this recipe. We also use it when cooled as a sort of jam spread with almond butter on Ezekiel or sprouted bread!

I have made this several times, and we love it. Halving the recipe still makes enough to fit into a 9x9 pan, which is plenty for two us with leftovers for another day. To the person who thinks there are too many ingredients, just leave a few out if you want. For me, though, it is a perfect mixture of fabulous foods, and is a real taste treat, since we have smoothies most mornings.
An update, as I made this again yesterday, but had a ripe red pear and a ripe peach I needed to use. I substituted those for the second cup of blueberries. I also added 2 T. of arrowroot powder, 1 ripe avocado and 2 T. of ground flaxseed when I blended up the 1 C. of blueberries and almond milk. It thickened up as it baked, and made a very nice consistency and flavor.

This recipe tastes sooooo delicious and all of the ingredients are healthy, but it really wasn't much of a "crisp." I had to bake it for much longer than the recipe called for and I added more than triple the amount of oats that the recipe called for, as well. It was just too watery when mixing all of the ingredients in a large bowl. (after blending some, as the recipe described.) Adding more oats made it much less liquidy and more like a cereal. Overall, though, it was easy to make and very delicious! I will def be making this again.

My husband and I really liked this. I adapted the recipe a little bit. I blended 1 cup of blueberries with 1/2 cup almond milk. I used 2 cups of berries to mix in with the oats, chia seeds etc. My berries were frozen, so I baked the crip for 35 min. Very delicious! I will make this again.

Absolutely delicious, and naturally sweet!  I may try a little less hemp milk and then broil it for a minute at the end to get it crispier.  My 5 year old granddaughter helped to make it and she loves it!

We had to cook this longer to get it to crisp.  I'm not a fan of cooked bananas but these weren't as bad as many cooked banana dishes I have tried.  I think next time I would still put them on top raw after it cooled.  Overall, I liked this and would eat it again.  Rating:  3 out of 5.
