Raw Cinnamon Apple Crumble with Date Almond Sauce - Vegan MoFo 2013 Day 9


Raw Cinnamon Apple Crumble with Date Almond Sauce

I thought I'd save this recipe for tomorrow, but then I realised that we're almost half way through Vegan MoFo and I've only shared one measly dessert recipe with you so far! *gasp* That is just not an acceptable way for me to treat my precious blog readers.

Raw Cinnamon Apple Crumble with Date Almond Sauce

There's another reason why I felt like doing a dessert post today. Spirits are at an all time high at Veganosaurus Headquarters. And here's why...


Yes, we got a brand spanking new power adapter for the laptop today. Woohoo!!! :D :D :D

When you look at the way everyone's partying now, you would never believe the kind of drama that happened here just one week ago.

This kind of mood definitely calls for dessert, don't you think? :) Here you go...

  1. I had a gluten-free and vegan apple crumble at this cute vegetarian place in Valencia. This date almond sauce looks heavenly and out of this world.

  5. Paaartyyy Tiiimmmeee! Sooo cute! :)

    I'm going to try this. May be then I will stop cooking apples before I eat them. Strange as it may sound, I'm not a big fan of raw apples.

    1. Akash, it should stay for 4-5 days I think. Chances are you'll finish it before that though.

    2. Yes, I did finish it before that and it tasted amazing even though it didn't get baked properly because of the cloudy sky.
