Gluten Free Berry Cherry Crisp

Recently, Christine and I made a voluntary switch to a (mostly) gluten-free diet. I’ve found that I don’t really miss bread and pasta all that much, but baked goods? Ugh. Put a loaf of banana bread or some oatmeal raisin cookies in front of me and I’m ready to throw ‘gluten-free’ out the window. Luckily, there are a ton of GF alternatives to wheat flour, including my personal favorite, oat flour. All you need to do is put some oats* in a food processor for a few minutes—no need to purchase an expensive pre-made package!

This recipe was inspired by an apple crisp that I found on The Wannabe Chef. The topping is a little thicker than a traditional crisp, but it’s absolutely delicious. My classic applesauce + butter combo makes it lower in fat than the original, too. Feel free to substitute the berries and cherries for your favorite fruits!

*Make sure to use certified GF oats if you have a gluten intolerance. Pure oats don’t contain gluten, but most standard commercial brands are processed in facilities that make wheat-based products and there’s a high risk of cross contamination.
