Stir together first four ingredients and spread evenly in a shallow baking pan.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle 2/3 of the crumbs in a 13x9x2 baking pan.

Combine egg whites, sugar, berries and lemon juice in a large bowl, with electric mixer, beat at high speed to stiff peaks, about 10 minutes.
