Dear Ones <3 My Beloved Soul sister Polona sent me a recipe with approximate measurements for a raw apple strudel, saying it is the best one she has ever had, and she wished that I would make a recipe, take pictures and share it with you all. Of course I loved this idea, and rarely say no to some baking;) Here is the result! <3
|I used these lovely red medium sized apples.|
|Layer out the bananas on the almond base layer.|
|Oh goodness, doesn't the apple mixture look so amazingly yummy and perfect for fall? ;)|
Blissful Raw Apple Strudel
2 cups/5 dl almond meal (if you don't have a meal, process almonds in a food processor/blender until a course meal is formed)
1 1/2 tbsp honey (use raw honey if You wish this recipe to be fully raw)
2 tbsp water
2-4 bananas (depending on how much you press out the first layer. I used one banana per layer.)
6-10 apples, depending on size. (I used 6 medium sized ones, but still got a lot left over. Perfect for breakfast or as a snack)
1 cup/2.5 dl raisins
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp coconut sugar + a bit to sprinkle on top
1/2 cup/1.25 dl ground macadamia nuts
some almond flakes for topping
Mix with a spoon the almond meal, honey and water till a paste is formed. Press out the mixture on a cake platter.
Slice the bananas and spread out on the almond layer.
Chop up the apples into small dices and put in a bowl. Add raisins, cinnamon, lemon juice and coconut sugar, mix well.
Put the apple mixture on top of the bananas, press with a spoon to make it firm. Sprinkle half of the ground macadamia nuts on top. Add the second layer of bananas, then the second layer of apple mixture, press again.
For topping, sprinkle the rest of the macadamia nuts, then almond flakes, and top off with coconut sugar to make if extra crusty and epic! Let the apple strudel sit in the fridge before serving. Enjoy <3
