Ingredients

US|METRIC
  • 2 cups pitted cherries
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 1/4 unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Remove All from Shopping List

    Directions

    1. For the filling Combine cherries and maple syrup in small pan and heat on medium heat until bubbly. Lower your heat and let simmer for 5 minutes Add your chia seeds and continue to simmer for 5 more minutes Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Let cool at room temperature and then refrigerate. You can do this part in the evening and let it sit in your fridge overnight. The cooler the better. Typically, I start my cherries in the morning and end up finishing the recipe 4-5 hours later.
    2. For the crust Preheat oven to 350' Place the oatmeal in your food processor and pulse until the flakes are about a quarter of the size they were originally Add remaining ingredients, except palm shortening, and pulse again until combined. Add palm shortening and pulse until just combined. You may have some little bits of the shortening still showing, but you don't want to overmix. Press your crust into a parchment paper lined, 8X8 baking dish. Really press it down and make sure it gets into all the corners. Bake for 20 minutes Remove and let cool completely before topping with cherries/ berries
    3. For the crumble topping Combine all ingredients in your food processor Press into cherry mix Once assembled, put back into oven at 350' for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing.
