Friday Foodspiration: Cherry Almond Crisp


Possibly the easiest dessert ever (my kids can make it)! You could substitute any berry that you have (I stocked up on cherries this summer when the price was right and have them in my freezer so I can make this again soon).

This Cherry Almond Crisp so yummy and satisfying – and still gluten, grain, dairy, and refined sugar-free. 


  • 2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup Swerve (or another sweetener)
  • 1/4 cup Almonds, slivered or chopped
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil 
  • 2 cups Cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1 tbs Swerve (or another sweetener)*
  • 1 tbs Arrowroot Powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. In a bowl combine the first 5 ingredients until large crumbs form, then refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, combine the cherries, 1 tbs sweetener, and arrowroot powder in a pie plate or 8×8 baking dish
  4. Add cold topping to the cherries and bake for 30-35 minutes until fruit is bubbly and topping is golden brown.

*Depending on the type and ripeness of your cherries you may have to tweak the amount of sweetener you use in the filling.
