Spring is sweltering its way right into summer. In preparation, we're taking an extra measure against those oh-so-sweet cookies and cakes. But good ol' mother nature is on our side here-berries ripen and the holy grail of natural sweetness is now at our (slightly blue) fingertips to replace the refined sugar of baked goods. It's time to have some fun baking with these berries. Check out these lightened- up cobblers and pies to reap the season's berry bounty.
This vegan treat is inspired by seasonal finds and depends on all-natural sweeteners to enhance the berries' natural sugars. This farmer's market-fresh crisp is an easy-going recipe that allows for ample variations to get just the dessert you're craving.
