One of my favorite desserts is fruit cobbler. There is something so delicious about crust over fresh fruit with a delicious syrup drizzled over the top. The first fall I experienced the year I was eating 100% raw I realized I really needed a healthy cobbler option. At a social gathering in the neighborhood one of my dear friends brought a raw fruit cobbler dish with fresh mangoes! I had 3 servings! And I wanted more! Of course I asked for the recipe and the first thing I did when I got home was create a recipe of my own. It took a few tries to get the recipe just right, the way I imagined it. Since then I have shared it with thousands of friends.
I think you will enjoy it as much as I have.
Raw Fruit Cobbler
1 cup raw walnuts or pecans
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 tsp sea salt
6 whole dates
1 Tbls chia seeds or hemp ground (optional)
1/8th cup honey or pure maple syrup (optional)
In blender or food processor blend nuts and coconut to a powder. Add whole dates and blend until well combined, do not over blend as it will get sticky and hard to work with. Add honey or maple syrup if you desire and stir to combine.
Syrup: 6 whole dates or 1/4 cup chopped dates, 1 Tbls. coconut oil, 1 Tbls pure maple syrup or honey (optional) 1/2 tsp vanilla powder, 3 cups water. Blend until smooth and store in a mason jar in the fridge. *You can also use fresh squeezed orange juice in for the syrup.
Filling: Fresh fruit like cantaloupe, peaches, apples, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, oranges, mangoes, papaya, my favorite is peaches or mangoes with blueberries.
