The sun may be setting earlier, but you don’t have to crawl into your sleeping bag just yet. This warm and comforting dessert will keep the camp party going just a little longer. Makes 2 servings


2 cups freeze dried strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries

2 teaspoons of honey

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 packet of True Lemon crystalized lemon

1 cup of old fashioned oats

½ cup of dark brown sugar

1 packet of coconut oil

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons of honey


At home:

  1. Pack all ingredients in separate leak-proof containers.

In camp:

  1. Combine berries, honey, vanilla, and lemon in a skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly (about 7 to 10 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Clean out the skillet and add oats, cooking on low to medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Add in dark brown sugar, honey, and coconut oil.
  3. Spread oat mixture across pan bottom and continue to cook for another 5 min. Remove from heat and set aside. The crisp will harden as it cools slightly. Once it’s reached a granola-like consistency, slide the disc onto your fruit berry mixture or crumble it on top. Enjoy warm.
