Cranapple Crisp; found it in one of my mom's cookbooks before I had my own apron. I've been lowkey customizing it every year as I become more conscious in the kitchen. I got us a little textual assist from @granolabitch to get going; tell me what you replace and how you replace it..! I'm thankful for this community.
  1. 3 cups of pared, diced apples
    I like organic pink apples but it's whatever you're into
  2. 2 cups of rinsed cranberries
    Go for plump, shiny, and anywhere from bright light red to dark red. A fun sorting trick is that the good, ripe ones will bounce...
  3. 1 cup oats
  4. 1 cup of brown sugar
  5. 1 cup granulated sugar??
    Gina told me I could use organic cane sugar to get it close to the old recipe. But I took her suggestion to reduce the sugar altogether... See below
  6. 1/2 cup flour
    "You could use almond flour, buckwheat flour, a mixture... Or throw oats in a blender to make oat flour (in addition to whole oats it calls for)." For this, Gina and I went with coconut flour.
  7. 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    "Get the sprouted kind from the bulk section at Whole Foods... so much tastier and better for you!" You could also swap them for walnuts or whatever.
  8. 5 tbsp butter
    "I would do a high-quality grass fed butter; it's more pure." Kerrygold brand unsalted or Earth Balance if you don't mess with dairy
  9. 1 tbsp cinnamon
  10. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
  11. Toss apples, cranberries, and sugar* in an ungreased baking dish
    Guys I literally just used sweeter apples and confettied coconut sugar onto the fruit party and worked around white sugar entirely. Spoiler alert: it is delicious. Easier to eat
  12. Mix the oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and nut mixture into melted butter
    Drizzle that crumble on the fruit party
  13. Cook for an hour on 450
    until it's toasty and bubbly and beautiful
  14. Serve it warm
    with coffee, or ice cream, or whiskey, with the pies, or as a side dish on the table. then cold the next morning with breakfast turkey or whatever
  15. Gina didn't approve that post
    How fire is the phrase fruit party
