Ingredients for filling

Apples, cut to your liking as if you were making apple pie 

½ tsp Cinnamon 

¼ – ½ Cup Coconut Palm Sugar 

Dash of Apple Pie Spice 

Dash of Himalayan Salt 

Blend above ingredients together.  If you are making this dish ahead of time, please add the juice of a lemon to the apples so that they don’t turn brown. 

For Topping

Equal parts pecans (or walnuts) and pitted dates.  Start with 1 cup of each with a pinch of Himalayan Salt.  Blend in food processor until mixture holds together and is crumbly.   Put topping on top of apple mixture in a serving dish.
