Lower Fat Cranberry Apple Crisp

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Julie in SoCal

This is a remake using less fat that I found on the Florida Herald Tribune website. Love to get the same taste using less fat! NOTE: finally got around to making this, and for my taste it is way too tart. I would either add more sugar to the cranberries or use dried to begin with. I'd forgotten just how tart fresh cranberries can be!

Top Review by LARavenscroft

Made for Tag it Red! This was wonderful. We love apples & cranberries and we also love crisps (easier than pie - same idea). I liked that the topping has very little butter in it to cut down on the fat and calories. I did use splenda instead of sugar. I think next time I would add a little cinnamon to the fruit mix and there will be a next time. Also, this recipe is very easily halved. Thanks for posting this Julie!
