This mango crisp is a play on mango oatmeal: you bake a thick layer of mango below a crumble of oats, with just a little sugar and brown butter to bind it all together.

The brown butter makes the oat topping that much nuttier. I baked this recipe in a deep-dish, 7-inch round ramekin that is almost 3-inches deep. The recipe filled the dish to the rim, and made my apartment smell amazing.

For those thinking they wouldn’t like a breakfast crisp made with mangoes, it’s actually quite lovely. The mango stays bright and fresh tasting. It’s the perfect form of bribery and something to look forward to in the morning. If you like baking with mangoes, try this peach mango pie!

    This sounds really good! I think I’d even add some coconut to the topping..

    Try not to worry about explaining yourself, everyone at home loves you and will always support you!

    I may have to try something similar with fruit I have in the freezer for breakfast soon. Good luck with the move. When one door closes a window opens.

    Nothing more comforting than a crisp to cheer you up. I think what you did the last nine months was amazing and you should be very proud of yourself. You never know what’s waiting around the corner for you…
