Cranberry Recipe -Gluten/Dairy Free!

                         My friend, Jessica, Gave me her Holiday Cranberry recipe
             that I made last year for Thanksgiving  and boy was it so ever Yummy!
                                              This year I'm going to swap & tweak
                                            the recipe to make it Gluten/Dairy free!


  • ·       2  cups tart apples-(Grannie Smith Apples)
  •      2  cups raw cranberries   
  •     3/4 cups of Stevia Sugar(Truvia)
  •      1 cup Gluten free rolled oats                                                                            (I use  Bob's Red Mill Gluten free Quick cooking oats)
  •      1/2 cup Earth Balance butter spread (gluten/dairy/soy free)
  •   1/2 cup Gluten free flour 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 
  • 1-2 wedge of lemon
  • Apple pie seasoning
                                                         Preheat oven to -350 degree F
Basic recipe instruction:

Mix all of the above together-Bake for 50 minutes in a butter casserole dish. 
Cover 1/2 of baking time, then remove top for other half.

                                                Place cranberries in a mixing bowl.
                                                Melting the Earth balance butter blend.

                                Measure out the Quick oats & add to the cranberries .

                                                                           Add Stevia.

                                                       Add brown sugar & set aside.

                                                     Wash , Peel & Chop apples.


                                                  Add a squeeze of lemon juice.

                                                  Place apples in a separate  bowl.

Add 1/4 cup flour to the apples.

                                                And 1/4 cup to the cranberries mixture.

                                                Sprinkle in Apple pie spice to the apples.

                                                                    Stir apple mixture.
                                                               Stir cranberry mixture .

                                                         Add both mixtures together.

                                                      Mix until all is well combined.

                                                        Add melted butter spread.

                                                             Mix until all is well combined.

                                      Place mixture into a buttered casserole baking dish.
                                                   (I used Earth balanced butter spread.)

                                       I sprinkled Apple pie spice onto the buttery dish.

                                                                          Pat down .
                                                        Cover and bake for 25 minutes.

Enough time for me to enjoy a glass of 
Pomegranate & Cranberry & Presecco wine!
                                                       (Got to get my Antioxidants!)
                                        After 25  minutes -Take out of the oven & uncover.
                         I add extra crumb topping with mixing more oats & brown sugar .
                                                              Sprinkle topping on top.

                                                Sprinkle more Apple pie spice on top .
Add more Earth Balance buttery spread on top 
& bake for remaining 25 minutes.
                                                               For your Holiday meal .....
                                                     Serve with dinner as a sweet side dish
                                                         Or with icecream as a dessert.
                                                    I prefer So Delicious dairy free brand .
                                              Cookie dough  is what I had on hand                                    
                                                   otherwise Vanilla flavor would be best.
                                                               Nice portion size for me.....
