Raw Apple Crumble

  • Servings : 4

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes

  • Cook Time : 0 minutes

This is a great dessert because it's easier and faster to make than an apple pie or crisp, and requires no baking. Instead of refined sugars, this recipe uses dates for sweetness, and lemon juice and nutmeg for that extra zing.



  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 4 pitted dates

Apple Filling

  • 3 apples, peeled, sliced and large diced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 apples, peeled, sliced and large diced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg



Step 1

Blend the walnuts and 4 dates in a food processor until the texture is a little smaller than Grape Nuts. Spoon into a small bowl and set aside.


Step 2

Toss the 3 peeled, sliced and diced apples with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and set aside in a bowl. Next, in the food processor, blend the remaining 2 apples, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 6 pitted dates, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss this mixture with the sliced apples.


Step 3

Place one-fourth of the apple filling into a small dessert dish and sprinkle with date-nut topping.


Use a good eating apple, such as a Gala, Fuji or Pink Lady in this recipe.
