½ Tsp cinnamon
¼ Tsp baking soda
½ Cup coconut oil, melted
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
½ Tsp almond extract
3 Tbsp maple syrup or Honey
2 Tbsp tapioca flour/starch
¼ Tsp almond extract
2. In a large bowl, mix together oat flour, oats, coconut sugar, cinnamon and baking soda. Add coconut oil, vanilla and almond extract and stir until a nice crumble forms and dough begins to clump together.
3. Place 1 ½ cups of the mixture into the pan and place the remaining mixture into the fridge. Using your hands, press the dough to the bottom of the pan.
4. For the filling, place a medium pot over medium heat. Add in pitted cherries, maple syrup, almond extract and tapioca. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 5 more minutes until mixture is thickened up.
5. Pour cherry mixture over the crust and spread it with a spoon. Sprinkle the remaining topping over the tart cherry filling. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown crust.
