Apple cranberry crumble

This apple and cranberry crumble is lighter and healthier than most recipes that are made with less sugar and less fat. I used pure maple syrup to balance out the tartness of the cranberries and apples and a hint of brown sugar in the topping. If you want to use an alternative sweetener like monk fruit feel free. And for more sprinkles, chips and cobblers, try these Cinnamon Apple Crisp, Strawberry Crisp, Apple Cobbler and Mixed Berry Pie.

This Apple Cranberry Crumble was a makeover request that I was keen to address! I was asked to lighten up a Christmas must-have that could be served for dessert or breakfast.

I both tried her original recipe and compared it to this lightened version and knew she would be happy with the new results!
