Apple Cranberry Crumble – Nut Free, Gluten Free and Vegan!

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Warm baked apple with crunchy crumble topping is one of my favourite fall and winter desserts. I have plenty of healthier versions of apple crumble and berry crisp and thought I had this topic pretty much covered… Until one of my clients recently asked for a nut-free crumble recipe.

I had to admit… all of my crumble recipes are loaded with nuts! I also wanted to create a crumble that’s gluten-free and vegan for those with other allergies and special diets.

In my Apple Cranberry Crumble, I’ve changed it up the classic apple crumble by adding some complexity of flavour with the tartness of cranberries.

To get the crunchiness of crumble without any nuts, I’m using TERRA Chips. They’re gluten-free, non-GMO, trans fat free and made with expeller-pressed vegetable oil. As a dietitian, I get excited about the fact that TERRA Chips are a source of fibre!
