Easiest Gluten/Dairy Free Cherry Crumble


It's a crisp in America and a crumble in England. But no matter what you call it, this fruity dessert with its addictive, crumb topping is delicious. I used fresh cherries to make this Gluten and Dairy Free Cherry Crumble. To pit them, I simply cut around the pit with a sharp paring knife. If you have a cherry pitter, it will speed things up for you. You can use pretty much any fruit you like; apples, strawberries, blueberries, plums or peaches will all be wonderful. This particular crumble is also grain free with no added sugar making it a healthier version of the traditional crumble without compromising taste. So go ahead indulge and enjoy!


CHERRY CRUMBLE

Recipe:


Ingredients:
  • 3 cups cherries, pitted and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
For the topping:
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
Preparation:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine cherry filling ingredients together. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan. 
  3. In another bowl, mix the crisp ingredients using a pastry blender or fork. The mixture should resemble course crumbs. Crumble the mixture over the cherry filling. 
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until brown.
Serve warm with non dairy ice cream or coconut whip cream

  1. I am so glad I found you through the Motivation Monday linkup party. I have been gluten free for 15 years. This past winter I also had to go egg/dairy/soy/artificial sweetener free. I also try to stay low sugar. It has been a huge adjustment to my baking and I'm having to adapt all my recipes. It is refreshing to find so many recipes in one place. Thank you!

    1. In this particular recipe I do use almond flour to make it grain free, however if you must avoid all nuts feel free to substitute the almond flour for your favorite all purpose GF flour. The recipe will still come out great!

  3. What are hemp seeds?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hemp seeds have a slightly nutty flavor and a rich, oily texture. Hemp seeds that have their hull intact provide a nice crunchy texture that makes a great addition to many foods.For this recipe i used the hemp seeds with hull intact. Hulled and milled hemp seeds tend to produce a creamy texture when mixed into foods.Like other seeds, hemp seeds are packed with a large dose of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp seeds are also considered a complete protein because they contain all nine essential amino acids. Most health food stores or Whole Foods etc carry hemp seeds. Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great day!

  5. What adjustments would I need to make if I were using cherries packed in water?

    1. I have not tried using cherries packed in water, however I would definitely drain them completely before using them in this recipe. Additionally, they may not be quite as sweet as the fresh ones so you may want to add a small amount of honey or agave to the the cherry mixture. Best and thanks for visiting!

  7. That crumble is gorgeous, Phyllis! I appreciate you sharing this recipe on Gluten-Free Wednesdays. I just shared some more. ;-) I've been using David Lebovitz's cherry pitting method ... using a large paper clip to remove the pit. It works great. I would take some time for that many cherries, but I consider it time to slow down and think so it works out. :-)

  10. The only Hemp I have on hand is Hemp Protein. And money is tight and I need a dessert for a church BBQ this Sunday. I was wondering if I could sub Flax instead, since I have that on hand. Your thoughts?

  11. As hemp seeds have a very unique flavor and texture I would probably not replace them with flaxseed.If you have toasted pine nuts or walnuts handy they would be a great substitute. They definitely have similar flavors. Thanks for visiting my blog and great question!

  15. Hi, how can I reproduce the crumble as shown in the picture (they look almost like biscuits rather than just a sprinkle over)? Your instructions say to crumble the mixture over the cherry mixture...

    1. Hi Desiree, for purposes of making my crumble picture pretty I scooped the crumble topping with a spoon and placed the crumbs on top creating that zig zag effect. Hope that answers your question. Best and thanks for visiting my blog.
