Cherries are high in antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and keep your digestive system and cholesterol in check. They are also one of the few foods that is a source of melatonin - a natural hormone that regulates your sleep patterns. Can you say midnight snack? ;-)
Pre heat the oven to 350.
Rinse the frozen cherries in a strainer and let them sit on the counter while you are mixing the rest of the ingredients.
Use a little Earth Balance to grease a 9x13 baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, flax seeds and sugar. Stir to combine. Pour the melted Earth Balance over the dry mixture and stir well.
Spread the cherries evenly out over the bottom of the pan. Top with the crisp mixture.
Bake uncovered in the oven for 45 minutes.
