Recipe Friday: Cran-Apple Crumble

It is cranberry and apple season! The cool blustery winds are coming in, the leaves are turning, and fall is in the air.

Cran-Apple Crumble is a seasonal dessert just right for potlucks, or for nibbling in the house. Have it with some coffee any time.

The flours and sweeteners mentioned are the healthy version; however, you can use white sugar, white flour, and brown sugar in this recipe.

As with many recipes, the amounts listed are suggestions: you can go crazy with cranberries, apples, oats, and sweeteners as you like. Customize this as you will; I like to add a bunch of cinnamon and nutmeg. 🤤

Ingredients:

3 cups                  peeled and chopped tart apples

2 cups                  fresh or frozen cranberries

¾ cup                   sucanat, coconut palm sugar, honey, or maple syrup

3 tablespoons     whole grain oat, barley, or wheat flour

                              Topping:

1 1/2 cups           quick-cooking oats

1/2 cup                 whole grain oat, barley, or wheat flour

1/2 cup                 coconut palm sugar

1/2 cup                 butter, melted

Directions:

In a medium-large bowl, combine apples, cranberries, sweetener, and flour. Pour into a greased 11×7-in. baking dish.

In a bowl, mix topping ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until fruit is tender.
