Crust & Crumb Topping

Cherry Filling

  • 1 1/2 cup cherries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch


  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Begin with the cherry filling.  Add the cherries, maple syrup, and water to a small saucepan on the stove over low to medium heat.  Smash the cherries once able to and mix in the corn starch.  Let the fruit simmer for about 5 minutes until it begins to thicken.  Remove from the heat and place in the fridge to thicken further.
  3. Then begin the crust.  In a large mixing bowl combine the almond flour, oat flour, and salt.
  4. Next add in the melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract.  Combine evenly.
  5. Add 2/3 of the mixture to a greased or lined 8×8 baking dish.  Flatten into a crust.
  6. Pour the cherry filling onto the crust and spread evenly.
  7. Add the oats to the remaining 1/3 of the crust mixture and combine to make the crumble topping.  Next add the crumble topping on top of the cherry filling.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes.
