Cranberry Walnut Crumble

Serves 8


    • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup vegan butter, in small pieces, chilled
    • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
    • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
    • 2 (12-ounce) bags fresh cranberries
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • Zest and juice of 1 orange
    • 5 apples, cored, sliced
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch plus 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and brown sugar. Add butter and use your fingertips to cut butter into the flour mixture until very coarse meal forms. Add oats and walnuts, tossing to combine.
