The idea for this recipe came from a newspaper article, it was about a raw food event in Texas. This version is more simple, quick and easy. It’s been great to experiment with around the holidays. It tastes best after marinating overnight, the raisins get soft and plump.
3 medium apples, grated
½ cup raisins
¼ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup walnuts, chopped
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (non alcohol, optional)
½ lemon , juiced
Combine all ingredients in large bowl, mix well. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes before serving. I like to play with the seasonings, sometimes add more lemon, cinnnamon or a little maple syrup for extra sweetness.
It’s great for breakfast with dehydrated buckwhat sprouts sprinkled on top or mixed with sprouted quinoa.
