10 Raw Vegan Apple Dessert Recipes
Today I have 10 raw vegan apple recipes to share with you. Some of them I've already shared on my blog here in previous years but its always nice to bring back around.
With Autumn upon us I've been getting into apple and pumpkin desserts lately. I've been enjoying the simplicity of apples all on their own as a great snack, sometimes whole and other times peeled and sliced. I've also been discovering new kinds (although I need to take better note of the names). It amazes me just how different apples can be. Some are crunchier and less sweet, some are super sweet but have a softer texture, while others are tart and crisp.
#1. Raw Apple Cinnamon Crepes
Apple Cinnamon Crepes
Banana Pear Crepes
Try with banana and pear, or just banana! I'm sure apple and banana would work well too.
Blend the bananas and pears in a blender until completely smooth. Pour a thin layer onto teflex dehydrator sheets and spread evenly using an offset spatula. Dehydrate at 115F for 6-8 hours, or until you can peel it off the teflex. If still a little too moist/wet on the underside, continue drying for 1/2 - 1 hour. The crepe sheet should be pliable. Cut the sheet into 4 squares.
Apple Cinnamon Cream Filling
3/4 cup cashews
5 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
2-3 medium apples or pears, diced small (peeled optional)
Blend all but the apple in a high speed blender until smooth. Set aside. Fold the cream with the apples or pears - if you want a creamier filling fold in less apples and vice versa.
Fold up the apple cream filling in each crepe. Garnish with extra apples or pears, chocolate sauce and/or caramel sauce.
My latest creation is the raw caramel apple tart which is a nutty crust filled with a layer of apple cream and topped with caramel apple chunks. Its a nice thing to serve to friends or family and can be made into mini tartlets, individual dessert sized tarts (I like to use 4"), or a larger tart that gets sliced.
#2. Raw Caramel Apple Tarts
1 cup raw almonds
2/3 cup dried mulberries OR raisins
2 tablespoons ground golden flax seed
4 teaspoons water
Grind the almonds to flour in a food processor. Add the mulberries and ground flax and continue grinding. Add the water and pulse to incorporate. The dough should hold together when pressed. If not, add another 1/2 teaspoon water. Press into the bottom of 12 mini silicone muffin cups OR into several mini tart pans. Place into the freezer while making the cream.
1 cup diced, peeled apples
3 tablespoons melted coconut butter
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients until smooth in a high speed blender (make sure the apple is at room temperature). Spoon some of the cream into the bottom of the tart shells and chill in the freezer while making the caramel.
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
1 1/2 tablespoons raw almond butter
1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Pinch of Himalayan salt
1 large apple, peeled and diced small
Whisk together all ingredients except the apples to make the caramel sauce. Fold in the apples. Spoon the mixture over the tarts and serve.

This is such a light and tasty Fall snack. It pairs well with apple or pear slices, or even with crackers.
Caramel Apple Cinnamon Dip
2 1/2 cups peeled, diced apples
3 tablespoons lucuma powder
2 tablespoons pecan or almond butter
2 medjool dates
3/4 - 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder or splash vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted coconut butter
Blend all but the coconut creme until smooth and creamy. Add the coconut creme and blend to incorporate. Add a few drops of stevia if you want more sweetness. Eat immediately or chill for a few hours first.
