Cranberry Apple Crisp

Recipe: Cranberry Apple Crisp

This dessert captures the flavors of the holidays and is quick and simple to prepare.

Almond butter, rolled oats, and almond flour create a crispy crumble topping that is rich in beauty nutrients vitamin E and fiber. Vitamin E works to protect natural oils in scalp and skin, while fiber helps to keep you slim.


  • 3 large apples, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup almond flour


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add apples and cranberries to a medium-sized casserole dish and toss with the cornstarch, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine remaining ¼ cup maple syrup and 1 teaspoon cinnamon, almond butter, vanilla, and salt and mix until combined. Stir in almond flour and oats until a crumbly texture forms. Scatter this oat crumble over the cranberries and apples.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the apples are soft and the crumble is lightly browned.
