While this is a great recipe to make with leftover cranberry relish, it’s also a great reason to make your own cranberry relish! With no added sugar, it’s just fruit and oats … so you could eat it for breakfast (and I do).

This recipe is also available in our convenient iPhone app and newly released Android app.


  • 4 large apples (I prefer Gala or Braeburn)
  • 1½ cups 5-Minute Cranberry Relish
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon alcohol-free vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix the apple slices with the cranberry relish, and pour into an 8-inch silicone baking pan.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the oats with the apple juice, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until well mixed. Spoon evenly on top of the apple-cranberry mixture.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
  5. Serve hot, or enjoy it cold the next day with a hot cup of tea … also delicious!

This is the most crowd-friendly Chef AJ recipe I’ve tried yet, especially if served fresh and warm!

Very simple to make – slicing apples takes the most time. Make the relish first so the apples don’t turn brown. I love that everything in this dessert is good for me!
