My very good friend and right hand woman Kim absolutely loves this recipe so I thought I'd share. I also made this for a Vitamix event this week and we had great reviews! Apple Crumble Crust 4½ c. pecan (do not soak) 3 T. well-packed, finely chopped dates 2 T. cinnamon 1 T. vanilla 1/8 t. sea salt
In a food processor, for 1 minute blend 3 cups of pecans, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.
Continue to process while adding small amounts of dates. Place in a bowl with remaining pecans.
Press into a 12x10 inch pan, setting aside 1 ½ cups for topping.
Filling 8 cups apples, sliced ¼ cup lemon juice 1 Tbsp vanilla ¼ cup maple syrup pinch sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Evenly distribute the filling on top of the crust.
Add the remaining crust on top of the filling.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Whipped Cream 1 c. coconut milk 1 c. cashews ¼ c. agave, raw honey, or maple syrup 2 T. lecithin 1t. pure vanilla 1 t. lemon juice ½ c. melted coconut oil Note: To make coconut milk, blend 1/4 cup dried, shredded coconut with 1 cup water, until completely smooth and creamy.
