Chocolate Berry Crisp
by Runner's World
The good news about training for a marathon is that it does leave you with a bit more caloric wiggle room for slightly indulgent treats. This chocolate berry crisp still has plenty of good-for-you nutritional value, including fiber from oats and inflammation-reducing antioxidants from the berries and chocolate.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a bowl, mix the berries and cornstarch. (If using thawed frozen fruit, use the higher amount of cornstarch.) Pour the fruit into an 8" x 8" glass baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the honey, oats, wheat germ, brown sugar, cinnamon, and almonds. Spread over the berry mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the dish from the oven and top evenly with the chocolate chips. Return the dish to the oven and bake for 10 minutes, or until the chocolate is melted. Serve warm topped with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
