Saw a recipe for Apple Crisp somewhere that sounded really good. I wanted to make it this weekend, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know of a raw Apple Crisp recipe?? Maybe I saw it on here, but when I did a search it didn't come up with what I was looking for...

Well, let's see, I bet we could come up with one.
You would want a tart apple, like a granny smith I think, peel, core and slice, then you would want some kind of gooey, sweet stickyness for a filling, so maybe some dates with some apples through the food processor?
then for a topping, you might want just some almonds or walnuts chopped up with a little honey, or dates mixed in.
and then some cinnamon and nutmeg in the gooey apply part.
Okay, so here you go.
Take 3 ganny smith apples, peel, core, and slice, soak in lemon juice to keep them white, then take 1 cup of dates, and 1/2 cup of water, or orange juice and mix together.
Drain the apples, put in a pie plate and pour the date mixture over the apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, 2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg.
Take 1 cup of almonds (soaked) and put in food processor, chop up not too fine, then add 1/2 cup of dates, chop up more.
sprinkle this on top of the apples.
and see if you like it, it sounds good though.
Hope it works.

I'll have to try it! Very inventive. Can't wait until I get comfortable enough that I can get spontaneously creative like you! :)

Thanks for such a nice compliment.
I've written about 20 raw menu un=cook books, and the spontenaity comes from catering so many raw feasts.
good luck and let me know how it turns out.

raw guru's apple cobbler. close enough for you?
Here is another yummy-looking apple cobbler recipe:
from Vital Creations* by Chad Sarno
4 apples, 3 sliced thin, 1 chopped
1/2 c raisins* soaked 2-4 hours
1/2 T lemon juice
1/2 t Celtic sea salt*
1c pitted dates*
In a high speed blender, blend 1 chopped apple, soaked raisins, cinnamon, lemon juice, nutmeg and Celtic salt until smooth. Pour sauce over thinly slices apples and toss well. Continue by spreading an even layer of apple mixture in a medium sized lasagna pan, set aside Next, in a food processor pulse the pecans until finely ground then add the dates and continue to grind until evenly mixed. Crumble an even layer of pecan mixture over apples. Dehydrate the whole pan at 110 degrees for 2-4 hours. Delicious served warm with Coconut Cream. [Coconut cream recipe can be found on the recipes page.] Also try other variations with peaches or pears, omitting the apples.
[Note: We've found that this recipe is also delicious without dehydrating. You can eat it right away, or let it sit and marinate for a few hours so the apples really absorb the flavors. Also, we like to add a few handfuls of whole raisins to the apple mixture before tossing.]

All of these ideas sound so good. I'll just have to make them all! :)
If I do, I'll tell you how they all turned out...

Kiku - Thanks for the recipe!
I have made it about 3 times so far. The first time I really enjoyed it. The second time I used Granny Smith apples and it was way too tart. And the third time I cut down on the cinnamon from 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon. I could probably go even further.
So here is my verdict - it is best with sweeter apples, less cinnamon, and kept in the fridge overnight before eating so the flavors can soak into the apples.
You are most welcome Siempresam. I haven't gotten around to making it yet myself, but when I do I will keep your suggestions in mind. Thanks for posting them!
