For Apple Filling:

  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into ¼-inch wedges
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½  cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ cup dried cranberries

For Crumble:

  • ¼ cup quinoa, cooked
  • ½ cup quinoa flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • tablespoons butter, melted

For Caramel:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Combine and toss all ingredients for apple filling together. Set aside.
  • Mix all ingredients for crumble. When loosely squeezed, the crumble should hold its shape. If it doesn’t, add another tablespoon of butter. Set aside.
  • Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook until it’s thick and a rich caramel color. Add heavy cream, butter and salt, and cook until smooth. Remove from heat, and pour ¼ cup of caramel sauce into apple mixture and reserve the rest.
  • To assemble the crisps, divide the apple mixture into individual ramekins. Top each with the crumble.
  • Bake until filling is bubbly, apples are cooked and crumble is golden<br> brown, about 30 minutes.
