Raw Apple Crumble


Okay, here is our winter warmer secret weapon... It is to die for;

3/4 cup walnuts
3/4 cup almonds
6 -8 pitted dates
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

In a food processor, chop all ingredients together into a crumbly, but moist texture.  Set aside in a bowl.

6 large apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
4-6 medjool dates
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Dash of sea salt

In a food processor pulse 4 of the apples into small chunks and transfer to a mixing bowl. Don’t pulse too much or you will just make apple sauce.  You just want to chop the apples into small chunks.
Process the remaining 2 apples with the dates, cinnamon and salt, until smooth (like applesauce). Mix both together and spread into the bottom of a 9x9" pan and then sprinkle the crumble on top.
Hot tip: we eat ours warm with natural yoghurt & fresh berries...


I was obsessed with making these while I was pregnant with my sweet little Luxe.... Peach & I experimented with so many different fruits & flavors... Below is the base recipe & go crazy with experimenting with flavors for example:
 coconut flake, shredded coconut, mixed raw nuts, macadamia nuts, mint, mixed berries.... FYI - Peach loves chopped banana & we like the raspberries.
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cacao
1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup
sprinkle of salt
handful of macadamia nuts
handful of frozen raspberries

Combined coconut oil, cacao, honey, salt into a saucepan & stir on a low heat for 5 to 10  minutes (make sure you DON'T burn it) 
Cut up fruit & evenly place into cupcake trays or shaped freezer trays & pour in the mixture.
Place into freezer..
