Cherry Filling

  • 4 cups pitted Bing cherries, halved
  • 2 tablespoons white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup orange juice (option to sub water)

Crisp Topping

  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (any kind of flour will work!)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (option to use coconut sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (option to use coconut oil or half and half)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF and spray a cake pan (or any casserole dish) with nonstick cooking spray. We used a casserole dish.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, toss cherries with 2 tablespoons of flour and orange juice. Transfer the fruit into the greased casserole dish and set it aside.
  3. Next, in a separate bowl, mix together all of the crumble ingredients. Use a fork (or your hands) to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it forms little crumbles. Evenly spread crumble topping over the cherries in the casserole dish.
  4. Bake at 375ºF for 30 minutes or until the filling begins to bubble and the crumble topping begins to brown.
