I recently went to Costco and for some odd reason I bought a bag of 20 apples. I eat apples, but I’m not sure I needed a bag of 20 of them.
Now I needed to use up these apples, because it seems like the never ending bag of apples!
Seeing I love raw desserts this idea popped into my head. What I love most about raw desserts is how quick and easy they are to make. Plus you don’t need exact measurements like you would for baking.
Hope if you make this you enjoy this as much as I did!
Recipe for crust:
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cups soft medjool dates
Recipe for apple filling :
3 large apples ( I use red delicious)
3 to 4 soft medjool dates
3 dashes of cinnamon
2 dashes of ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp lemon juice
Water to blend
Recipe for crumb topping
1/4 cup almonds
1 medjool date
First prepare the crust. Add the walnuts and dates to your food processor and blend until a sticky batter forms. Press that into a small pie pan. Set in refrigerator and prepare the crumb topping. Add the almonds and date and process to a crumb consistency. Set in a bowl to the side. Now onto the filling. In your food processor peel and chop two of the apples, dates, lemon juice and spices and process into an apple sauce adding in a bit of water as it runs to get it all to turn into apple sauce. Once fully combined you can leave it in the food processor. Next peel and slice the last apple. Now take the pie crust out of the fridge and layer the apple sauce on the bottom then add sliced apples then sauce then apples then sauce then add the crumb topping. I set mine in the fridge overnight, because I was intending to eat it for breakfast, but it’s raw so you can eat it immediately if you like.
