Cran-Apple Crisp

This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 4 cored and thinly sliced apples
  • 1 16-oz. can whole cranberry sauce (or substitute jellied cranberry sauce*)
  • 2 tsp. soft margarine, melted
  • 1 c. uncooked oatmeal
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash apples, remove cores and slice thinly, keeping peel on. In a bowl, combine the cranberries and apples. Pour into an 8-inch by 8-inch pan or baking dish. Combine melted margarine with oatmeal, brown sugar and cinnamon until well blended. Sprinkle over apple/cranberry mixture. Cover and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 more minutes until the topping is crisp and brown. Serve warm or cold.

* If using jellied cranberry sauce, use a fork to mash the jellied sauce, then add sliced apples and mix well.
