A Pistachio-Cherry Crumble Pie For the Weekend

Make this pistachio-cherry crumble from Self before the fruit goes out of season — you'll be glad you did!

Does anything say Summer better than a thick slice of cherry pie? A dessert this delicious may be a treat, but you can rest easy knowing that the ingredients are totally good for you. For starters, pistachios are full of potassium — a mineral known to help lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone. As for cherries, not only are they full immune system-boosting anthocyanins, they are also a great natural source of melatonin, a hormone that helps your sleep. Mix it up before the fruit goes out of season — you'll be happy you did.
