Warming Raw Caramel Apple Crumble, taste heavenly

I made this Caramel Apple Crumble is a very warming dessert that is gluten-free and raw.  You must try this recipe! for some special friends of ours, Chris and Tracy.  How can one possibly go wrong with caramel?!  Carmel can make a flip-flop taste good, haha. When I sent this crumble home with Tracy I provided a squeeze bottle that held the left over caramel sauce so they could drizzle it over the pie.  I encourage you to give this recipe a try and if you do, please let me know how it turned out or if you made any new variations to it.




  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or dark agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup date paste
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan pink salt


  • 6 medium Pink Lady apples, cored, peeled and diced
  • 8 large pitted medjool dates
  • 3/4 cup raisins (or use a few more dates)
  • 2 tsp ground Ceylon cinnamon



  1. Process ingredients together in a food processor with the “S” blade until crumbly.
  2. Press into a 9-inch spring form pan.
  3. Set aside about 1/4 of a cup to use as a crumble on top of the dessert.

Caramel sauce:

  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powdered blender and process until smooth.
  2. Stop occasionally to scrap the sides down. Spread 3/4 of the caramel sauce on top of the crust.  We will drizzle the remainder over the top of the crumble at the very end.


  1. Blend 2 apples, dates, raisins, cinnamon until smooth in the food processor with the “S” blade.
  2. Set aside in a bowl.
  3. In food processor chop the other 4 apples. Be careful not to make a puree out of this, you just want small bits.
  4. Mix into the blended mixture.
  5. Spread into pie crust. Chill.


  1. Garnish with apple slices that have tossed in lemon juice to preserve the color.
  2. Sprinkle some of the left over crust crumble over the top and then drizzle the rest of the carmel sauce over the top.

    I find that raw apples are getting harder for my digestion lately and I was wondering if slightly cooking the apples will help without destroying the health benefits of raw food?

    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Kathy,

      It is said that cooking causes a loss in enzymes but the most important issue at hand is that you listen to your body and feed it appropriately. In my opinion, it is healthier to eat cooked or slightly cooked foods if you can digest raw. That was a hard lesson for me wrap my head around because I wanted to be 100% raw, but I can’t. Be kind to your body. :) amie sue

  4. I’ve made this delicious pie for my mother’s birthday today and everybody absolutely loved it! The only thing is that it’s a bit too sweet, so next time I’m gonna cut down on the sweetness. That having said, again a great pie! Thank you Amie-Sue for your fantastic recipes

      So happy that you enjoyed it Sven. Thank you for sharing your experience. The sweetness factor is always subject to the person making it so always feel free to adjust it as you go. Have a blessed and wonderful weekend! amie sue
