Raw apple pie granola.
This "recipe" has quickly become one of our favorites for breakfast. It's raw, so you get all the benefits of uncooked and unprocessed food, but it's also delicious. It tastes just like Fall, in my opinion. It's the perfect combination of tart and sweet, without any sugar (or dairy or gluten - yay!). Ok, enough said. Onto the recipe...
Ingredients (to make breakfast for 2):
2 honeycrisp apples
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup pecans
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
[ If you haven't tried a honeycrisp apple before, run to your nearest grocer... they are to die for. ]
1. Roughly chop 2 honeycrisp apples, then pulse in a food processor until chopped to your preference. Divide chopped apples between two bowls.
2. Put 1 cup pecans and 1 cup pitted dates, along with 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice, in your food processor and turn on for about 30 seconds. It will become a doughy consistency when it's all blended.
3. Spoon "granola" on top of chopped apples and enjoy!
