Cherry Almond Crisp – 3 WW Points Per Serving

I was craving something sweet tonight – and with not much in the way of bad for me stuff in the house – I put on my thinking cap and came up with a Cherry Almond Crumble.

Maddie and I had a cherry crisp at a local restaurant this summer that was to die for – while that was probably sugar laden and full of butter, I thought I could recreate a close facsimile with sugar substitute and some ingenuity.  This is totally worth it.  if you cut the “pie” into 8 servings its 3 PointsPlus per serving.
