You’ll love this apple cranberry crisp for the holidays or anytime! Soft, sweet apples and tart, juicy cranberries are delicious paired with a buttery brown sugar and oatmeal crumble.



For the Filling

  • 67 cups peeled and chopped apples (from 4 large apples, about 780 g)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries (112 g)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar (66 g)
  • 2 tbsp oat flour (10 g)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (15 mL)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the Crisp

  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats (150 g)
  • 1 cup oat flour (90 g)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar (66 g)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup melted plant-based butter (112 g)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (177˚C) and spray an approximately 9×13-inch baking dish* with non-stick spray. Melt the plant-based butter in the microwave or on the stove and set aside to cool.
  2. Make the filling by combining the apples, cranberries, ⅓ cup brown sugar, oat flour, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and 1 tsp cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix until the apples and cranberries are evenly coated. Spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Make the crisp by mixing the rolled oats, oat flour, ⅓ cup brown sugar, ½ tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl until well combined. Pour in the melted plant-based butter and mix until everything is evenly coated. Use a spoon to evenly distribute the mixture over the fruit in the baking dish.
  4. Bake at 350˚F (177˚C) for 50-60 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the fruit mixture is bubbling. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.


Apples: Use firm baking apples such as Honey Crisp, Gala, Granny Smith, Fuji, Braeburn or Pink Lady. You can use kind or a variety for more depth of flavour.

Baking Dish: I used a 2-quart oval baking dish and that worked perfectly. You can use a 9×13-inch dish or even a deep 9×9-inch square pan.
