Pistachio Berry Crumble

Pistachio Berry Crumble

While wanting more recipes to use for all the fresh cherries my husband and I picked this summer, I thought this combination sounded inviting as it combines two of my favorite dessert ingredients- FRUIT and NUTS. Not eating many grains, I do miss fruit pies in the summer. This dessert really meets that desire excellently. It is perfectly sweet, crunchy and bursting with flavor. I think you and your guests will really enjoy this refined-sugar free, gluten-free, whole food ingredient- Pistachio Berry Crumble.


4 cups pitted cherries (if frozen, thaw)

1-1/2 cups blueberries

1/4 cup pure maple syrup plus 2 T.

1 T. fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup almond flour

2 T. arrowroot powder

½ cup shelled unsalted pistachios (or rinsed salted pistachios)

1/3 cup rolled oats

¾ cup walnuts

½ t. cardamom (or nutmeg/cinnamon)

¼ t. real salt

4 T. butter, melted


  1. Grease a 9″ pie plate with butter.
  2. In a bowl mix berries with 2 T. arrowroot powder, lemon juice and 2 T. maple syrup. Place in greased pie plate.
  3. In a food processor add the nuts, flour, oats, cardamom, and salt, pulse until nuts are medium to finely chopped.
  4. Mix in the melted butter and maple syrup.  Spoon this mixture over berries.
  5. Bake in 350⁰ F oven until bubbly with golden brown topping. Serve warm or room temperature.   Delicious served with Cheerful Cherry-Walnut Ice Cream or homemade whipped cream.
