apple-pear-cranberry crisp


This is one of my favourite fibre-filled fruit combos. The addition of walnuts adds healthy monounsaturated and Omega-3 fats.


  • 3 Granny Smith Apples, cored and sliced
  • 2 Bartlet Pears, cored and sliced
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • Juice from one lemon
  • ½ Tsp. Cinnamon
  • ¼ Tsp. Nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. Maple or Agave Syrup


  • 4 Tbsp. chopped raw walnuts
  • 1 Cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 Cup whole wheat, spelt or quinoa flour
  • ¾ Cup dark brown sugar (or for a healthier, zero-calorie option, stevia extract)
  • ¼ Cup melted butter
  • 1 Tsp. cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the topping ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a separate microwave safe bowl or pot on the oven, melt the butter. Add the walnuts, oats, flour, sugar/stevia, and cinnamon, stirring well to combine.
  4. Line the bottom of an 8″ x 8″ casserole dish with the fruit mixture and top with the rolled oat mixture.
  5. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes, or until the top is golden-brown.
  6. Serve warm.  *For a treat, serve with a scoop of vanilla or maple ice cream.
