1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
Few dashes cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
4 tablespoons low-fat milk, separated

Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine oats, almonds, coconut, sugar and spices. Spread in an even layer on prepared cookie sheet and bake in oven until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Oats will harden as they cool. Make ahead in larger quantities if desired, storing in zipped storage bag for up to 1 week.

To prepare each serving of crumble, add 1/2 cup frozen berries to small microwavable dish. Stir in 1 tablespoon oat mixture, 2 tablespoons low-fat milk, 1 teaspoon flour, and 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until berry juices are bubbling. Top with an additional tablespoon of oat mixture and scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt if desired.
