Apple Cranberry Orange Crisp is the perfect bookend to your Thanksgiving menu! This dessert is complex in flavor, includes a number of beautiful fall flavors, and is relatively quick to pull together.


Units Scale
  • 6 Honeycrisp Apples, peeled and sliced (medium-to thick slice)
  • 2 cups Fresh Cranberries, washed and patted dry
  • 1/2 Navel Orange, freshly squeezed juice and zest
  • 1/2 cup Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Bob’s Red Mill® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Oat Flour
  • 3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill® Gluten-Free Whole Grain Rolled Oats
  • 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 Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • Optional: So Delicious Dairy-Free Oatmilk Creamy Vanilla Bean Frozen Dessert, or vanilla ice cream of choice, for topping


  1. Prep: 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.
  2. Filling: In a large bowl, combine the apples, cranberries, orange zest, orange juice, sugar and flour. Set aside. 
  3. Topping: 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. 
  4. Put it together: Transfer the filling to the baking dish and then sprinkle with the topping. 
  5. Bake: 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. 
  6. Optional: Serve with a side of dairy-free ice cream.


  • Apples: I use Honeycrisp Apples here. You can also use Braeburn, Crispin, or Pink Lady. 
  • Brown Sugar: You can use coconut sugar or cane sugar as an alternative.
  • 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).
