Nutrition and Calories in Cranberry Crisp

A quick note on how we figured out the nutrition in this cranberry recipe. Because different cranberry sauces have different nutritional values, and without being able to be 100% sure which everyone will use, I based this nutrition label on a fresh cranberry crisp recipe. So if you want to keep calories low, use fresh cranberries. Or a combo (half and half) of cranberry sauce and cranberries.
