Apple Cranberry Walnut Fruit Crisp Recipe

Apple Cranberry Walnut Fruit Crisp

Prep: 30 Minutes
Bake: 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups sliced apples (unpeeled for extra fiber)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup regular rolled oats
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I use 1/4 C four and 1/4 C flaxseed meal for added nutritional benefit)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. Place apples and cranberries  together in a 2-quart square baking dish.
  2. Combine all of the rest of the ingredients together to make the topping. Mixture will resemble coarse crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle this topping over the fruit.
  4. Bake in a 375f oven for 30-35 minutes or until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden.

Note: 1) This is great with vanilla icecream! 2) If you’re like me, you want to double the topping portion. Don’t. I already did it for you. 🙂

Variation: if you’re short on time, just use a can of pie filling in place of the fruit and put in the oven on your “broil” setting for a few minutes until bubbly and golden brown. Watch it–it won’t take long to warm through!

  1. There is a misprint in the Apple Cranberry Walnut Fruit Crisp recipe. It had me a little confused for a minute! It reads: 1/4C four and 1/4C flaxseed meal; it should read: 1/4C FLOUR and 1/4C flaxseed meal. If anyone put four 1/4 C flaxseed in it they were either quite puzzled or had a heck of a bellyache! Flaxseed is great. I use that on cereal that doesn't have much fiber in it; ther's not a lot of taste to it- just a little crunch. I have a gas problem when I use the flaxoil pills as a supplement.

  2. Was my 1st comment received? I sent it just prior to the one just sent. It was my input on the “Life More Simply” site; today is my 1st day on it. I mentioned that I had 4 grandkids, etc. I'm having to “enter” 3 times. I know for sure the 2nd one went through. With the 1st one, however, I did not have to type in a keyword at the bottom before it went through- IF it did. Please let me know.
