Total time: 
Serves: 10 servings (scant 1 cup each)
  • 3¼ lbs sweet cherries, pitted (about 10 cups)
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour or white wheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅔ cup coconut oil
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place pitted cherries in the baking dish. Sprinkle with the corn starch and sugar; mix until corn starch is well-incorporated and soaked into the cherries. Spread the cherries evenly in the baking dish and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, brown sugar, and salt until well-combined. Add the coconut oil to the bowl and using your hands, massage the oats into the coconut oil until coconut oil is evenly distributed throughout the oats and the mixture is pebble-like in consistency.
  3. Spread the oat mixture evenly over the cherries and bake for 1 hour. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
