Cranberry Apple Crisp 🍎

Ohhhh do I have a GOOD one for you today! This Cranberry Apple Crisp must be on your menu this weekend! Your house will smell absolutely delightful while it’s baking, and you’ll warm up those bellies with this sweet (shh…secretly nutritious) in-season dessert!

A dollop of coconut cream or high-quality vanilla bean ice cream on top = perfection!

The popularity of these tiny, antioxidant-packed red berries is growing in the United States. Bright red cranberries are actually visible from space during the harvest season (according to National Geographic), which occurs from mid-September through mid-November in North America.

Did you know?

CINNAMON is one of the most “comfort food”-like spices – and it’s surprisingly packed with nutrition.

✅ Cinnamon has one of the highest antioxidant concentrations of ALL herbs and spices … and is linked with better blood sugar management.

⭐ Researchers are exploring cinnamon’s effect in battling diabetes, heart disease, viruses such as HIV, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and so much more!

👉🏾 Add cinnamon to your beverages and desserts … put it in your chilis and stir-fries … or give your yogurt or chia pudding a boost with it.

➡ When you’re shopping, be sure to look for Ceylon cinnamon (vs. Cassia). It’s safer and contains more of the compound (cinnamaldehyde) that makes cinnamon so nutritious.

REFERENCE:

🍯 The sweetness factor is such a PERSONAL preference, so please consider this when adding in the honey, or maple syrup. Depending on your taste, you may want a bit more or less.

8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped blanched almonds
  • 2 tsps flaky sea salt
  • 2/3 cups raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup ghee or unrefined coconut oil, melted

For The Filling:

  • juice and zest of 1 large fresh orange
  • 8 large apples of choice, peeled, cored, and chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsps gluten-free flour or Arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsps ground cinnamon

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees f. and lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with ghee or coconut oil.

First, let’s make the fruit filling:

Place your freshly squeezed orange juice into a large bowl.

Slice 2-3 apples and quickly toss them in your orange juice.

Repeat with remaining apples, slicing them in small batches to prevent them from browning.

Once all the apples are prepared, add the remaining filling ingredients to your bowl. Stir everything really well to combine.

Transfer the apple-cranberry mixture into your prepared baking dish using a spatula to get all the goodness into the dish.

Level it all out into an even layer and cover with parchment or aluminum foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir the oats, walnuts, almonds, salt, honey/maple syrup, and ghee/coconut oil.

Stir very well until every piece is lightly coated.

Once the baking time for your filling is up, carefully remove the dish from the oven.

Give the filling a good stir, then evenly sprinkle it with your oat topping.

Return to the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes uncovered, or until the crumble is lightly golden and bubbly on the sides. Keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t burn.

Enjoy!
