No Bake Cherry Crumble- Gluten Free

Pin It


During the summer here in Arizona there are many days that you don’t want to turn the oven on because it is just too hot.

I thought up the concept of making traditional fruit desserts such as crumbles and crisps on the stovetop instead of in the oven.

If you don’t have the heat issue that I do and want to make this recipe in the oven, you will need to cut the amount of fresh cherries down to 8 cups.  That is all that will fit in the 8’x 8″ pan.  The cherries shrink a lot as they cook down so I increased the quantity to 10 cups for my stovetop method.

This method is really easy but you do need to keep stirring the fruit as it cooks down so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.  Keep an eye on it when it is covered so it does not boil over and make a mess (yes, it happened to me the first time I made it!)

The topping mixture for this Cherry Crumble is gluten free but it does have almonds in it.  You can omit the almonds if you wish and just add more GF flour mix and sugar instead. 

There is less than 1/2 cup  of sugar in this whole dessert!

I shared this recipe with This Weeks Cravings at Mom’s Crazy Cooking, Sweets For A Saturday at Sweet As Sugar Cookies

    Thanks so much for linking up to This Week’s Cravings! I did a Diet Cherry Coke Cake recipe (not gluten-free), but I love that your recipe is GF. Don’t forget to come back next week for our theme of “kid-friendly recipes”.
