Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
While the oven preheats, using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, make the topping. Combine the brown sugar, all purpose flour, old fashioned oats, flax, chia, coconut blend, sliced almonds, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract and softened butter. Mix until pea-size pieces form. Set to the side.
In a large bowl, rinse and pit all cherries.
Pour sugar, almond extract, and cornstarch on top. Mix well until combined.
Spray a ceramic baking dish with cooking spray. Then pour in the cherry mixture. Sprinkle the oat topping on top of the cherries.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Remove from the oven and serve warm. Top with whipped cream or ice cream, or both!
