  • 6 cups peeled and thinly sliced baking apples such as Fuji, Honey Crisp, Jonagold or Granny Smith (1.25 lbs or 4 medium apples)
  • 2 cups frozen cranberries, defrosted
  • 3 tablespoons flour (I used white whole wheat)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • cup pure maple syrup


  • ¾ cup flour (I used white whole wheat)
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar or light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter or coconut oil, cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Toss the apple slices, cranberries, flour, sugar, cinnamon, orange zest, 2 tablespoons orange juice, and maple syrup together in a large bowl.
  3. To make the topping, mix the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt and butter together in a stand mixer until the mixture is crumbly and sticks together in small clumps. Alternatively, you can use your hands to break the butter up and mix everything together in a bowl. Add the nuts and mix until just combined.
  4. Spray a 13x9-inch rectangular or 15-inch oval baking dish with cooking spray and pour the apple mixture into the dish. Spread the topping evenly over the fruit. Place the dish on a baking sheet (to catch any drippings) and bake in the oven until it is bubbly and the apples are tender, 55-60 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
