How to make berry crisp? 

First preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Then cut the apples into a larger bowl and add the berries, sugar, starch, lemon juice and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well mixed. Pour the fruit-berry mixture into a larger baking tray (e.g. a 15×23 cm or 20×20 cm tray is applicable). For the coating, mix together the crumb ingredients. Start with dry ingredients. At first, mix the starch, sugar and oat flour in a bowl. Then add coconut oil and squeeze between your fingers until the mixture takes the form of slightly crumbly crumbs. If the mixture feels too dry, add a little more coconut oil. When you have finished the crumb, sprinkle it on the berry-apple mixture waiting in the baking tray and place the treat in the oven to bake for 30 minutes, until the crisp is golden brown on top. Enjoy warm!
