Autumn Apple Cranberry Crumble and simple Cranberry Water

Posted by: Ursula Zamora on Monday, October 08, 2012

Fall is in the air, and I know it's really here when delicious apples are on sale for almost half the usual price.  I love all the great fall treats, especially baked apple anything and anything with cranberries.

This time of year, I love to make pitcher upon pitcher of cranberry water.  It's great to help detox the body of chemicals and so much more affordable to make this time of year since cranberries are so much cheaper.  I simply rinse and boil the cranberries in water until the berries pop. 

Let the mixture cool, strain with a fine sieve and you can either keep the concentrate in a bottle and put a few tablespoons in a glass of water or mix the concentrate in a pitcher that you can drink from throughout the day.

Now that you've made the water, you have all this awesome leftover pulp.  If you have no plans to bake right away, make sure it's cool and freeze it to use later.  If you have a few simple ingredients on hand, you can make a deicious apple crumble!


for apple filling:

10 cups peeled and sliced baking apples

1 Tbsp flour

1/2 cup to 3/4 c sugar** (to taste, depending on the apples you use)

cranberry pulp

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1/2 cup concentrated chai tea

for crumble:

1 cup oats

1/2 cup flour

1 scoop Raw Protein Vanilla or Vanilla Chai

1 scoop Superseed

1 Tbsp ground flax

1/4-1/2 cup sugar** (to your taste, more or less)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted 

Preheat oven to 350F.  **Please note that the sugar amounts can be adjusted to your taste.

In a large bowl, mix together all of the filling ingredients well.  Place evenly in a 9 x 13 in pan.

In another bowl, mix all of the dry crumble ingredients together well.  Pour in coconut oil and combine with a spoon or well cleaned hands the coconut oil into the dry ingredients to make a course crumbles of all sizes.  

With a spoon or your hands, evenly distribute the crumbles over the apple mixture.  Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until bubbly.  Cool for as long as you can before eating!  I would have gotten a photo of my crumble coming out of the pan, but it went too fast!

The vanilla smell of the baking crumbles was A-Mazing.
