This Apple Cranberry Orange Crisp is like the dessert I grew up on, but dare I say better…It’s filled with hints of warm cinnamon and nutmeg, tart cranberries, sweet crisp apples and a pop of fresh orange, and I am in love. It is then topped with a “buttery”, oat-nut topping.

Ingredients Notes For This Apple Cranberry Orange Crisp:

  • Apples – I use Honeycrisp Apples here. You can also use Braeburn, Crispin, or Pink Lady. 
  • Cranberries – You can use frozen fresh for this recipe. (When cranberries are in season, I usually buy a number of bags and throw them in the freezer for later).
  • Bob’s Red Mill ® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Rolled Oats – What a great brand this is. Plus, I love their gluten-free products as well.
  • Bob’s Red Mill ® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Oat Flour – Here is another goodie. I use this flour on a daily basis now, because I want to stay away from processed white flour. This gluten free oat flour contains the same nutrition as their old fashioned oats, which provides fiber and protein.
  • Nuts – Use either almonds or pecans, but almonds are my favorite!
  • Miyoko’s Creamery ®European Style Cultured Vegan Butter – This butter is 100% crafted from plants. Plus it melts, spread, browns, bakes and tastes like butter. For me, this is a great alternative because it is lactose free, gluten-free and contains no dairy.

  1. This is a must try!!! I love crisp. I can almost taste it now with ice cream melting on the warm crisp!!! It’s good to have your crisp topping. There are lots of them but yours looks perfect.
