Instructions

Prepare the crust
  1. Add all the ingredients for the crust to a medium-sized bowl and stir until it's well combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to an 8 x 8 baking dish lined with parchment paper, spread it evenly on the bottom of the baking dish, then press it down firmly. Set aside.
Prepare the filling
  1. Add all the ingredients for the filling to a food processor and process/pulse until the apples and dates are broken down into tiny pieces, taking care not to over process.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the baking dish, spread it evenly on top of the crust, then press it down firmly. Set aside.
Prepare the topping
  1. Add all the ingredients for the topping to a small bowl and whisk together until it is creamy and smooth.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the baking dish and spread it evenly on top of the filling.
Assembly
  1. Place the baking dish in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes for it to firm. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve because it will get soft if left out at room temperature. Enjoy!

Hi there, I’m Karielyn! I’m a wife and mother of three (daughter 20 years old, son 7 years old and son 5 years old) and I’ve been married for 24 years. I try very hard to make sure my family has healthy, nutrient-dense and wholesome foods to eat and that we avoid detrimental foods that can destroy and undermine our health.  Since I purchase the groceries and prepare the meals for our family, I do not take this responsibility lightly – it has always been my number one priority since embracing healthier food choices over 7 years ago. love to make everything I can from scratch and avoid processed foods as much as possible.  I'm very proud to have two young boys who love kale, goji berries, hemp seeds and my green smoothies. I am passionate about eating and buying healthy, organic, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods and ingredients and hope I can relay some of that passion with you.   On my website, The Healthy Family and Home, I share easy to make raw, vegan and gluten-free recipes using clean, wholesome ingredients.  I also provide "5 Fast Facts" about the key ingredients in the recipes I post listing the nutritional benefits of each one so you can "feel good about what you eat". No matter what diet plan you follow, I want to help you make healthier food choices, read ingredient labels and learn about what's in the foods you eat. Eat like it matters...because it does!
