Raw Apple Crisp

Here is a fresh'n'spicy raw-apple-crisp for a refreshing Friday morning breakfast.  My husband suggested that I make apple crisp for breakfast today. I know that he was not a fan of soft baked apples where it can no longer be called 'crisp' anymore ;-). Anyway, I have never figured out why on earth do we ever bake apple, when the raw apples are so fresh, crispy, juicy and taste so refreshing!! This is inspired from a few Apple crisp/crumble recipes with my own modifications.

  • Organic apples - 2 (any kind)
  • Fresh orange juice - Squeezed from 1/2 of an orange
  • Raw almonds - 1/3 cup
  • Raw pumpkin seeds - 1/3 cup
  • Raw sunflower seeds - 1/3 cup
  • Raisins - 1/2 cup
  • Cinnamon powder  - 1/2 tsp.
  • Ground dry ginger - 1/2 tsp.
  • Fresh grated nutmeg - 1/2 tsp.
  • Himalayan salt - a pinch

  • Chop apples and toss with orange juice and set aside.
  • Pulse the nuts and seeds along with the spices and salt to a coarse powder. Add raisins and continue till raisins are ground and mixed well.
  • Spread the chopped apple in a shallow dish and spread the nuts mixture evenly on top. 
  • Serve immediately or let it sit for 10-15 minutes for all flavors to mingle well.
  • Enjoy!!
