Ingredients
Oat crumble crust
  • ¾ cup gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons quinoa flour
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold coconut oil
Cherry filling
  • 5 cups pitted cherries (about 1 ½ pounds fresh cherries)
  • ½ cup organic sugar
  • ¼ cup red wine, preferable a fruity one like Pinot Noir
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. corn starch
Instructions
Crust
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until crust batter resembles wet sand. Transfer onto pie plate. Press crust batter thin to coat the bottom and sides of the plate. Place in freezer for fifteen minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place hardened crust in oven for 20 minutes. Remove and add filling.
Filling
  1. To make filling, start by pitting 5 cups of cherries, about a pound and a half of cherries. Place in a cowl with sugar, red wine, vanilla extract and corn start. Stir until evenly distributed.
  2. When crust comes out of the oven, add filling to the pie dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven. Let cool completely.
  3. To serve scoop into bowls, by itself, with ice cream, or whipped cream!
