Ingredients

  • 18 ounces fresh cranberries, about 1 1/2 packages
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or gluten free flour mixture
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten

Instructions

  • Add cranberries, maple syrup, lemon juice, water, and cinnamon to a saucepan. Heat mixture over medium. Cook, stirring occasionally until all of the cranberries have popped, and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour mixture, baking powder, oats, brown sugar, salt, and spices. Add melted butter, and eggs. Spread half the mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish coated with cooking oil spray.
  • Spoon the cooled cranberry mixture over the crust.
  • Gently spread or plop the remaining dough mixture on top of the cranberry layer.
  • Bake for about 35 until the top is lightly browned. Allow to cool before slicing.

Notes

These are delicious served with plain or vanilla Greek-style yogurt or fresh whipped cream.
