Ingredients

Crust - Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole grain spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (or 2/3 cup rolled oatsground in food processor)
  • 1/4 cup corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice

Crust - Wet Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized banana mashed
  • 4 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Filling

  • 4 cups cherries fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup agave nectar depending on the sweetness of the cherries
  • Pinch of ground vanilla (or seeds from 1/2 pod or a few drops vanilla extract)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch dissolved in a bit of water to make a slurry

Instructions

Crust

  • To make the crust, combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix the wet ingredients together very well. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and using your hands, mix until a firm dough forms. Wrap in cling foil and chill for 30-60 minutes.

Filling

  • To prepare the filling add the cherries to a large pot together with the agave nectar and vanilla.
  • Bring to a boil and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add the cornstarch slurry and mix in very well. Bring to a boil once more and take off the heat.

To Assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 9-inch pie dish.
  • Between two sheets of parchment paper roll out 2/3 of the dough to fit the pie dish, about 1/8 inch thick. Stab several times with a fork and pre-bake for 10 minutes.
  • While the bottom crust is pre-baking, roll out the remaining dough and cut into your desired shapes to make the top crust.
  • Remove the pie dish from the oven, spread the bottom crust with the cherry filling and create your top crust.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Then turn down the heat to 350°F and cover the pie with aluminum foil. Continue baking for 30 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and finish baking the pie for 5 more minutes.

Notes

Add a few tablespoons of Amaretto liquor to the cherry pie filling for some extra flavor!
Nutrition is for 10 servings using 1/4 cup of agave nectar in the filling.
