RAW APPLE CRUMBLE
By Cathy Fisher
Makes 4 to 6 servings
Ready In: 20 minutes
FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING:
½ cup walnuts
2 pitted Medjool dates chopped
FOR THE DICED APPLE FILLING:
4 apples, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
FOR THE APPLESAUCE:
2 apples, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
5 pitted Medjool dates chopped
¼ cup raisins
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
This dessert is easier and faster to make than an apple pie or crisp, and it requires no baking. Instead of refined sugars, this recipe uses dates for sweetness, and lemon juice and nutmeg for that extra zing.
From Straight Up Food Instructions:
1. To make the crumble topping: Blend the walnuts and dates in a food processor to make crumbly nuggets similar in size to Grape Nuts cereal. Spoon into a small bowl and set aside.
2. To make the filling: Toss the 4 peeled, diced apples with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and set aside in a bowl.
3. Next, blend all of the sauce ingredients in the food processor: 2 apples, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, plus the dates, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss this mixture with the sliced apples.
4. To serve, spoon into dessert dishes and sprinkle with the date-nut crumble topping.
