Cranberry Apple Hazelnut Crumble

Sharon Palmer

I love using fresh cranberries when they are in season. I just can’t get enough of those tart, crunchy berries this time of year. One of the best ways to showcase them is in wholesome, fruit-forward desserts, where their flavor and color just shine right through. This healthy Cranberry Apple Hazelnut Crumble—packed with fruits, a touch of citrus, and a crunchy, hazelnut-whole grain-spicy crumble topping—is the perfect way to celebrate the cranberry season. In fact, it’s healthy enough that you could enjoy it for breakfast with a cup of steaming coffee, and delicious and pretty enough that you could serve it for a party or holiday dessert. Plus this Cranberry Apple Hazelnut Crumble is completely vegan and gluten-free! Let the cranberry celebration begin!

  1. Would it be possible for you to incorporate one of the pictures of the recipe for when we want to print it? I always like a reminder picture of what it is I’m about to make.

    • I’m sorry, our recipe format doesn’t include photos, as many times people only want to print out the recipe. However, if you want to include photos in your printing, then you can just print out the whole blog page from your computer. Thanks so much!
