Cranberry Apple Filling

  • 2 lb gala apples, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup if not following SCD)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Almond Flour Topping

  • 2 cups almond flour or almond meal
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup if not following SCD)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 325F. 

Cranberry Apple Filling

  • Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan over medium heat and stir the mixture well. 
  • Keep the filling over the heat until the apples have softened slightly and the cranberries have begun to burst, about 5 to 8 minutes. 
  • Pour the filling into a 13x7 baking dish and set aside. 

Almond Flour Crumble Topping

  • Place all the ingredients into a medium size bowl. Use your hands to mix and press the mixture. 
  • The topping will be crumbly when in the bowl but should stick together when pressed between your fingers. 
  • Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit. Place the baking dish into the oven on the middle rack. 
  • Bake for 15 to 25 minutes until the fruit is bubbling and the crumble topping is lightly browned. 
  • Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. 


This dish is best served straight from the oven. Leftovers can be placed in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
