With a nod to my Foix friend Sanna Phinney, I share with you this super simple dessert. It’s was Sanna’s delicious recipe that she prepared for our welcome meal that served as an inspiration.
4 apples, cored and cut into chunks
4 pears, cored and cut into chunks
1 T Fresh Ginger – finely grated
2-4 T maple or date syrup or honey
½ cup each of pumpkin, sunflower, and hemp seeds
1 cup of Almonds, Walnuts, or Pecans or a mixture
1 cup coconut flakes or chips
1 t cinnamon
¼ t of freshly grated nutmeg
¼ t of vanilla powder or 1 t of vanilla extract
½ to ¾ cup of melted coconut oil
1-2 T maple or date syrup or honey (more depending on desired sweetness)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the fruit, ginger, and syrup together and pour into a baking dish.
In a food processor lightly process the seeds, nuts, and coconut leaving texture. You can also use a blender but be careful not to over-process.
In a mixing bowl combine spices, oil, and maple syrup with the nuts. You may need to adjust the proportions by adding more syrup to taste or a bit more oil if it is too dry. You will want all of the mixture lightly coated.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 35-40 mins. The top should be golden brown and the fruit should be fork tender.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Consider topping with coconut ice cream or a plant-based whipped topping.
