Cranberry apple squares – SRC

4 Nov

Time for a secret recipe club post. This month I was assigned Stephanie from sustainable cooking for one. There were so many interesting recipes to choose from. Finally I decided to try this one. I had to change up some of the ingredients though… It came out pretty good, but was definitely missing some sugar :). The original also called for fresh cranberries which I had none of so I substituted dried… Fresh would have definitely been better!

heavily adapted from sustainable cooking for one

1 c dried cranberries
1 very large apple diced
1 1/4 cup flour
1t cinnamon
1 T baking powder
3 eggs
1/3 c apple sauce
1/4 c coconut oil

1 T sugar
1/4 t cinnamon

Grease a medium baking pan (8″ by 8″, for example) and preheat the oven to 400 F.

Mix together the flour, cinnamon, and baking powder in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat together the eggs and apple sauce. Quickly and lightly stir the egg mixture and the coconut oil into the dry ingredients. Add the apple and cranberries and pour into the pan. Mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until firm to touch.
