Morello Cherry Almond Crisp

Morello cherries are a sour cherry with dark red skin and juice. I found some at a recent trip to Trader Joe's along with almond meal, which is simply ground up almonds, and thought they would make a nice dessert. If you don't have a Trader Joe's in your area, they generally carry both of these items at any health food store. This crisp was both tart and sweet and the almond meal gave the crisp a nice, nutty flavor. 

Morello Cherry Almond Crisp
2 12oz Jars Trader Joe's Dark Morello Cherries
2 tbsp. Agave Syrup
1/2 c. Oats
1/2 c. Light Brown Sugar
1/2 c. White Chocolate Chips
1/2 c. Trader Joe's Just Almond Meal
3 tbsp. Butter, melted

Drain the liquid from the cherries and place cherries in a bowl and add the syrup; mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, chocolate chips, almond meal and melted butter until it it crumbly. Place the cherry mixture into an oven safe baking dish (approx. 8"x8"), then spread the oat mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Serves 6.

  1. looks so delicious! I love everything Trader Joe's!

  2. Love the idea of using almond meal in place of flour in a crumble topping. It probably gives it a great flavor!

  3. This looks fantastic and I feel a sense of kinship with you for the "experimental" in your title. Everything in my kitchen is experimental :) I like that the ingredients are natural and healthy. I hope you win the Chinet bakeoff.

  4. It did have a wonderful flavor Brianne!
