It is also low in carbohydrates and has a lower glycemic index than wheat flour, which can help regulate blood sugar levels. Rolled oats are also a healthy ingredient, they are a good source of fiber and antioxidants and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and a reduced risk of heart disease.

The use of almond flour eliminates unnecessary carbs. The tartness of the cherries combined with the spices and honey provides a perfect combination of sweet and sour that will delight your tastebuds.

If you’re looking to make this recipe more low-carb, there are a few substitutions you can make to reduce the amount of carbohydrates.

  3. Reduce the quantity of honey in the topping or again, use a sugar-free alternative.

By making these substitutions, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious and satisfying low-carb version of this Warm Black Cherry Crisp recipe. However, be aware that depending on the sweetener and topping you choose, the texture and flavor of the final recipe may vary.

Tip

Frozen cherries are much easier to use than fresh ones for this recipe. Place frozen cherries in a small strainer set over a large bowl to collect the liquid while thawing. Reserve the liquid to use in smoothies, cocktails, or non-alcoholic beverages. For example, you can combine some of the cherry juice with club soda and some crushed mint for a refreshing spritzer.

Instructions

Place top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Divide the cherry mixture equally among the cast iron mini-servers and spread into an even layer. Divide the topping between the 4 mini-servers, as well, and spread into a thin layer on top.

Place into pre-heated oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned and the cherry mixture is nice and bubbly. Tip: If using a 10” skillet, cover loosely with aluminum foil after 30 minutes and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
