I began receiving daily recipes from a website called The World’s Healthiest Foods. If you cringe when you see the word ‘healthy,’ I ask you to give this site a chance. There is such valuable information about a variety of foods and even gives great tips on how to prepare foods so that the most nutrients are able to be consumed. Very helpful! So the recipe that I received today looks just amazing and I cant wait to try it… so I though I would share it with you all as well! It’s a No Bake Apple Tart. Here it is…
2 1/2 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cup dates (pitted)
Sea salt to taste
3 green apples
juice of 1 lemon in 2 cups water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp ground clove
2 Tbs honey
1/2 cup apple juice
(I omitted the raisins becasue I’m not a fan, but if you are, you can include 1/4 cup of raisins)
-Process walnuts and dates in food processor until mixed well and ground into a course texture. Press into a 9 inch tart pan and allow to set in refrigerator while making the filling.
– Slice apples into quarters, core pieces, then cut into 1/4 inch pieces. Let apple pieces to rest in the lemon bath while cutting the remaining apples. When finished cutting all apples, drain liquid.
– Heat apples and rest of ingredients in a large skillet for 10 minutes, stirring frequently
– Transfer apples with a slotted spoon into a bowl to cool
-Reduce the remaining liquid to about half the original volume, remove from heat, and cool
– Spread apples evenly over crust and drizzle apple syrup on top
Serve with frozen yogurt or some vanilla bean ice cream. Mmmm! If you and your family don’t finish it in one sitting, refrigerate it, covered. Enjoy!! And let me know how this perfect fall treat goes for you!!
