Vegan Apple-Cranberry Crumble Dessert
6 to 8

Everyone thinks of apples and cranberries as autumn delights, the foods we associate with Thanksgiving. But since they are both so readily available, there’s no need to wait for a holiday to prepare this simple, homey, vegan dessert that has an elegant surprise inside: chopped, crystallized ginger.

  • 2 1/2 lbs. Apples, cored and sliced (about 5 cups)
  • 1/3 cup Cranberries, dried
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Crystallized ginger, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Cardamom
  • 5 tbs. Maple or agave syrup
  • 1 1/4 c. SmartBran™ cereal
  • Ice cream or vanilla soymilk, for garnish (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. In a large bowl, toss together apples, cranberries, walnuts, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and 2 tablespoons syrup.
3. Transfer mixture to a rectangular baking dish about 8" x 11" x 2".
4. Distribute SmartBran™ on top and drizzle on remaining syrup.
5. Bake until apples are easily pierced with a knife and top is lightly browned. If top browns before apples are tender, cover pan lightly with foil.
6. Serve warm or at room temperature. If you wish, top with a scoop of ice cream or pour about 1/4 c. of soy milk over each portion.
