Vegan, Gluten-Free::Cranberry Apple Crisp

Cranberries and apples aren't just for the fall time.
I absolutely love the fall because it's the time for cozy sweaters,
cool fall evenings, pumpkins, apples, cranberries, and warm desserts.
I know it's almost spring, but I crave fall all year long. 

This recipe is very easy to customize; 
the measurements aren't exact and you can basically eyeball everything.
So if you're not a vegan, non-gluten eating person, don't worry, because
you can simply substitute the ingredients! I also make this very low in sugar because
I can tolerate the tartness of the cranberries, but if you need to add a little bit more maple syrup
or stevia. You can even add some chopped walnuts or pecans into the fruit mixture.

Recipe: Vegan, Gluten-Free: Cranberry Apple Crisp
                                                                     By: Hannah Claudia                  

1 cup of frozen cranberries
approx. 2-3 cups of water
2 tablespoons of maple syrup

2-3 apples, peeled and cored and diced
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 tablespoons of water
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

3/4 cups of oats
1/2 cups of walnuts
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of vanilla
5-6 tablespoons of coconut oil 
(you might not need this much but i'll explain later in the recipe)


1. Boil the water. When the water is boiling,
add the cranberries and the maple syrup. Cook until the cranberries
have popped and thickened.
2. Toss all of the ingredients in the second paragraph in a large bowl
and coat the apples in the mixture.
3. Add the dry ingredients in the third paragraph in a food processor and 
blitz everything until it all resembles a coarse crumbly mixture. 
Add the tablespoons of coconut oil one tablespoon at a time until
the mixture starts to form granola size clumps.
4. Mix the apples and the cranberries in a large bowl and transfer to a baking 
dish. Add the crumble topping on top.
5. Bake at 375*F for 25-30 minutes or until the crisp is crispy ;)

What's your favorite fall time dish that you miss?
