This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 3 unpeeled baking apples, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups sweetened, dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon soda
  • 1½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil


Coat apples with lemon juice immediately after chopping to prevent discoloration; drain. Combine apples, cranberries, allspice and orange juice in saucepan and cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Mix together remaining ingredients; press slightly more than half the mixture into the bottom of a 13x9x2 baking pan that's been lightly sprayed with cooking oil. Spread filling; top with remaining crumble mixture and press lightly. Bake at 400 F for 25 to 30 minutes.
