Soo, I have been very bad lately and have been looking for a raw substitute to fight my cravings for cookies and brownies and cake. So I re-watched several recipe videos on meganelizabeth, the magnificent Easy To Be Raw guru and found this yummy recipe! She is a genius and I found a cute new way to eat apples!
2/3 cup Carrots (about 2-3)
8 Dates, Pitted and soaked if necessary
1 tsp Cinnamon (or to taste)
Tools: Food Processor and a serrated knife
This recipe calls for a food processor and I thought I could get by with my blender, but unless you have an awesome super blender you will definitely need a food processor. Here is how I did it with a blender though!
Step 1: Soak dates if needed for 5-7 minutes and then pit them. If not chop up your carrrots, about 2/3 cup and pulse in food processor until finely shredded. Since i did it in the blender my carrots were still somewhat chunky
Step 2: Add the dates and cinnamon and pulse, stopping to check and make sure it is processing evenly. I started to blend mine, even putting it in little by little, but it just couldn’t handle it so I kinda kneaded the ingredients together!
Step 3: You will want to cut your apples into rounds as pictured below, you can just flick out the seeds. The cutest part is that they are almost like apple chips and they have that cute little star flower in the middle!Step 4: You are going to combine your apple and carrot date spread by layers. So first you will do an apple chip and then a layer of your carrot date spread and then another apple chip and so forth. Then with your serrated knife carefully cut them into fourths or eighths to be even cuter and super bite-sized! Garnish with cinnamon if so desired and eat!!
