Ingredients

Ingredients for the Base

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup water

Ingredients for the Topping

  • 12 ounces fresh cherries
  • 2 peaches
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  • To make the base, combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Stir the wet ingredients together in a small bowl and then mix them into the dry ingredients.
  • Press the mixture evenly into the pan.
  • Pit the cherries and remove the pits from the peaches.
  • In a food processor, coarsely chop the cherries. Place the cherries in diagonal stripes across the base layer.
  • In a food processor, coarsely chop the peaches. Place the peaches in diagonal stripes across the base layer where there is space between the cherry stripes. This will allow each square bar to have cherries and peaches in it.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients to make the crumb topping, and distribute on top of the fruit.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, and let cool completely before cutting.
