Healthy Holiday Dessert

I search the web to find fabulous vegan desserts everyone will enjoy. Thank you mywholefoodlife.com

You'll make a crust an apple mixture and a topping. It takes a bit to cook the apple mixture but it's totally worth the wait.

The crust:  
* 2 cups raw pecans
* 10 Medjool dates
* pinch sea salt

The apple mixture:
* 4 large apples, peeled and cored
* 1/4 cup water
* 2 T maple syrup
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 1/4 tsp ginger
* 1/4 tsp nutmeg
* 1/4 tsp cloves

The topping: 
* 1 cup almond flour
* 1/3 cup coconut sugar
* 2 T unsweetened applesauce


In a food processor, combine the crust ingredients until a loose dough starts to form. 
Press the dough into an 8x8 baking dish and set in the fridge. 
In a slow cooker, add all the filling ingredients. Turn on high and cook until the apples soften. About 1-2 hours. You can also do this on the stove top if you prefer. That should only take about 30 minutes. 
Preheat the oven to 350. 
Using a slotted spoon, pour the finished filling on top of the crust and set aside while you make the topping. 
In a food processor, combine the topping ingredients. Sprinkle the topping over the apples and place in the oven. 
Bake about 25 minutes or until the topping looks a golden brown. 
Serve warm.
