Summer fruit gratin

Dietitian's tip:

Although this dessert uses a mix of summer stone fruits, it can be easily adapted. In early summer, combine raspberries and apricots. In the fall, try a combination of apples and cranberries.

To make this plant based, use maple syrup instead of honey.

    For the filling:

  1. 1 pound cherries, pitted and halved
  2. 4 cups peeled, pitted and sliced mixed summer stone fruits, such as nectarines, peaches and apricots
  3. 1 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
  4. 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar or firmly packed light brown sugar
  5. For the topping:

  6. 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  7. 1/4 cup sliced (flaked) almonds
  8. 3 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
  9. 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar or firmly packed light brown sugar
  10. 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  11. 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  12. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  13. 2 tablespoons walnut oil or canola oil
  14. 1 tablespoon dark honey


Heat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 9-inch (23-cm) square baking dish with cooking spray. In a bowl, combine the cherries and stone fruits. Sprinkle with the flour and turbinado sugar and toss gently to mix.

To make the topping, in another bowl, combine the oats, almonds, flour, turbinado sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Whisk to blend. Stir in the oil and honey and mix until well-blended.

Spread the fruit mixture evenly in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the oat-almond mixture evenly over the fruit. Bake until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is lightly browned, 45 to 55 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
