This healthy apple-cranberry crisp is easy to make and topped with a simple oat crumble. It’s vegan friendly, plus free of gluten and refined sugar.

  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds or chopped nuts pecans/walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or other sweetener of choice
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or butter
  • 12 teaspoons of water, only if needed


  • 4 cups apples, peeled, cored, and chopped or sliced (I used gala apples, but any good baking apple will work)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries (or an additional cup of apples)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or other sweetener of choice (use more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 tablespoon corn starch mixed with 1/4 cup water
