2 cups granola


2 tbsp butter


2 tbsp brown sugar


6 oz blueberries


12 oz sliced strawberries 


¼ cup granulated sugar 


4 tbsp cornstarch


Whipped cream can


Serves 4.



  1. Combine butter and brown sugar in a pan and heat on low until butter melts.

  2. Stir in granola and toast for 5 minutes, until a deep golden brown (being careful not to burn). Set aside.

  3. Combine blueberries, strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch in pan and bring to a simmer over medium to low heat. Patience is key, so use a low, steady heat to prevent burning. Good things come to those who wait.

  4. Cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture cooks through and starts to thicken. Test mixture for desired sweetness, add more sugar if needed. When berries are soft and sugar has melted, remove from heat.

  5. Add toasted granola topping, top with whipped cream. Serve warm.
