12 Raw Vegan Apple Dessert Recipes

Today I have a roundup of 12 vegan apple recipes to share with you. Most of them are raw too, and they're all gluten free. I've already shared them on my blog here in previous years but its always nice to bring back around each season, adding the new ones along the way. Do you have any apple dessert ideas that you want me to make a healthy version of? Let me know!

It's hard to believe that we're already into the second half of September. You wouldn't know it here as we've continued to have summer weather - pure sun and hot temperatures. I'm actually looking forward to some cool, rainy weather. I must officially be a West Coast girl!!!

Also, a reminder that there's one day left to register for my 7 Day Group Sugar Cleanse. I  have a group of lovely women all ready to start tomorrow! We'll be supporting each other and sharing the experience along the way in our private facebook group. You can read more and register HERE.

Now onto the RECIPES!!!

#2. Raw Vegan Caramel Apple Tarts

This recipe was featured in the 2017 Fall issue of Flourish Magazine. If you live in Canada, you can pick up a FREE copy at health food stores across the country.

Tart Shell

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.

Apple 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.

Caramel Apples 

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.

#7. Raw Vegan Caramel Apple Swirl Cheesecake

This is one of my all time fall favourites! I've made it at least 20 times and I also filmed a recipe video for it with Priscilla. After that, tones of people have made it and tagged us in their photos which is always great to see. You can find my recipe HERE (there are 2 versions).

I took this pic 4 years ago when I first made it.

This pic was taken last Fall after we filmed the video.
