A proper Mixed Berry Crumble!

So.. a couple weeks ago, we made a mixed berry crumble from weight watchers. We were not happy that it called for a stick of butter. It was far too much butter and definitely left the crumb topping something to desire. So, since I did have some berries left from that wonderful Graduation Cake, I decided a new crumble was necessary! A few tweaks I did, and a fantastic crumble was created!!
And man does it ever smell good!! I will post the recipe as I made it, so this is my crumble cause it is very different this time!!

Mixed Berry Crumble

4 cups mixed fresh berries ( we had strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. Use the mix you like!)
3/4 c all purpose flour
1/2 c quick cooking oats
1-2 Tbsp sliced almonds
1/2tsp ground cinnamon
5 Tbsp + 1 tsp Splenda Brown sugar blend
1/2 stick butter or margarine, melted

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 8/9inch square baking dish with pan spray and set aside. In a medium bowl mix berries, set aside.
In another medium bowl, mix together the Flour, Splenda brown sugar and cinnamon. Take 3 Tbsp of the flour mixture and sprinkle over the fruit. To the rest of the flour mixture add oats and almonds. Mix together. Add slowly the melted butter/margarine, stirring with a fork until the mixture becomes crumbly. will have clumps of mixture, but it will all be crumbs and moist. Like a true Crumb topping. Place in heated oven for 30-40 minutes until the top is golden and berries are bubbling. It's perfect!!! definitely doing to be our normal crumble recipe!!
