Raw Apple Pie Crumble

This week my body was hollering for raw foods and since apples were on sale, this is my latest creation.

6 cups of apples sliced very thin - use sweet ones like Fuji's
(you can leave the peel on for added nutrients, just wash 'em first!)
juice of one lemon - put it on the apple slices soon as you can
1/4 c dried cranberries or raisins (I used cranberries)
1 1/2 - 2 T ground cinnamon

Mix all the above very well

1 c orange juice
1 c chopped dates

Blend up the orange juice and dates in a blender and pour over the apple mixture. Toss very well. If you like it sweeter, blend in more dates. Let it all sit in the fridge for a couple hours to mix the flavors, and then serve at room temperature, if you can wait!

Eat with ground nuts of your choice on top and if you like a drizzle of raw honey. This is so healthy, contains no artificial sugars and can be eaten for breakfast even though it tastes like dessert!!
