Gluten Free Cherry Almond Bars

Gluten Free Cherry Almond Bars are made in one bowl and in under 45 minutes!

Cherry and Almond are two of my favorite pairings together, so you shouldn’t be surprised to see these Gluten Free Cherry Almond Bars. Well, to be fair, maybe the gluten free surprised you because I don’t bake gluten free 100% of the time.

However, I have a few good friends who have celiacs disease and are forced to stick to a strict gluten free diet. I have them over a lot and I like to have desserts available for everyone to get to enjoy together.

I love absolutely anything almond flavored. I am so obsessed with almond flavored things that I recently bought a new almond body scrub for the shower. It has caused a major problem though…every night around 9 pm, I am badly craving an almond dessert.

That’s where the idea for these Gluten Free Cherry Almond Bars came from. I was sitting there scrubbing away with my new favorite Almond & Honey Scrub (y’all, it seriously smells like heaven in a jar) and I literally wanted to eat the scrub.

I decided right then that I would be making something almond the next morning. Turns out I had a jar of cherries sitting in my pantry just waiting to be used and I knew it would be the perfect match.
