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.
* 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
* 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.
