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

  • Filling:
  • 6 Honeycrisp Apples, peeled and sliced (medium-to thick slice)
  • 2 cups Fresh Cranberries, washed and patted dry
  • 1/2 Navel Orange, zest and freshly squeezed juice
  • 1/2 cup Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Bob's Red Mill® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Oat Flour (linked below)
  • Topping:
  • 3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 cup Bob's Red Mill® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Rolled Oats (linked below)
  • 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Oat Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Sliced Almonds or Pecans
  • 1/3 cup Miyoko's Creamery® European Style Cultured Vegan Butter, unsalted (softened or slightly melted) (linked below)
  • Optional: So Delicious Dairy-Free Oatmilk Creamy Vanilla Bean Frozen Dessert, or vanilla ice cream of choice, for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Lightly butter or spray a cast iron skillet, or 9-by-13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the apples, cranberries, orange zest, orange juice, sugar and flour. Set aside. 
  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and almonds. Add the butter and give it a good stir to combine. Then finish working the mixture with your fingers. 
  • Transfer the filling to the baking dish and then sprinkle with the topping. 
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and juices are bubbly around the edges. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. 

Notes

  • Apples: I like a thicker cut slice.

  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.
