  2. Optional: brown the butter for a more complex flavor. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Swirl the pan by the handle often so the butter doesn’t splatter.

  3. Continue to heat the butter, swirling frequently, until you see little brown flecks in the bottom of the pan.

  4. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the oats, almond meal or flour, walnuts, brown sugar, and salt.

  5. Mix in the Greek yogurt and browned butter. Stir until all of the flour is incorporated and the mixture is moistened throughout.

  6. Dollop spoonfuls of the oat mixture over the filling and use your fingers to break up the mixture until it is evenly distributed.

  7. Bake until the filling is bubbling around the edges, the top is turning lightly golden and most of the cranberries have burst, 40 to 55 minutes. Let the crisp rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
