1 TBS Cinnamon or to taste
1-2 tsp. Lemon juice (more for more tangy flavor)

2 ½ cups Soaked and dehydrated pecans or walnuts (you can also bake on low temperature for 20 minutes if you don’t have a dehydrator)

3 TBS Non-GMO soy lecithin powder
2 cups Young coconut meat (3 good coconuts)
1/4 tsp. salt
12 Drops vanilla essence (Medicine Flower) or 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
¾ cup coconut oil

 

Method

1. Use a mandolin on it’s finest setting to slice halved apples into super thin slices.
2. Puree the dates, lemon zest and cinnamon with 1 cup of chopped apples or as needed to get mixture to form a paste in a blender or food processor.
3. Mix the remaining fruit together with the paste by hand in a large bowl.  Really mix it well to be sure to incorporate all the paste with the apples.

Crumble

1. Place half of the pecans in the food processor with the S blade.  Process until ”butter” is formed.  Add seasonings and remaining pecans.  Pulse the mixture to a consistency of coarse sand.
2. To assemble the cobbler place a light dusting of crumble across the bottom of a square 4”x4”(brownie pan about 1/4 of the mixture).
3. Place apple mixture evenly on the crumble being careful not to disrupt the crust on the bottom.
4. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
5. Sprinkle the cobbler with the remaining topping and whip if desired.
6. Note: If you are not going to serve the crumble immediately, wait until it is being served to put the crumble on the top.

Whipped Cream Topping

1. Blend until smooth.
2. Use in Fruit tart, parfait and with fresh fruit bowl.
3. Also use as decoration on cobbler, parfaits, lime pie and more.
4. For piping onto pies: put into a pastry bag with large star tip and make big stars.
