Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 150⁰C
  2. Peel, core and slice apples (using an apple slinky for this is very helpful as it will peel, cut and core the apple in seconds).
  3. Add apples to the pot on the stove with a tablespoon of water and stew with the lid on at a low to medium temperature.  Stew the apples until they are soft.
  4. Strain the apples and add them to a glass oven dish.
  5. Whisk an egg with the vanilla essence and honey and set aside.
  6. In a bowl crumble the crunchy nut seed combo bites with your hands and add 1 cup of almond flour.
  7. Add the wet ingredients with the dry and mix together with a spoon.
  8. Scoop the mixture onto the top of the stewed apples.
  9. Place in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes on a low temperature at 150⁰C so you are sure not to burn the almond flour. 
  10. Serve this dish warm with raw cultured cream or yoghurt.

Instructions
Equipment
  1. 2 x stainless steel round spring-form cake pans
  2. Food processor or thermomix
  3. Saucepan
Cake Mixture Instructions
  1. Place pitted dates in a saucepan on the stove with a tablespoon of ghee and heat on a low temperature until they soften. If you have a thermomix, you can do this for 5-7 minutes
  2. Place softened date mixture in the blender (or thermomix) and blend dates into a paste. Add remaining ingredients and blend at a high speed until the mixture resembles a chocolate cake mixture. The mixture should hold a firm smooth consistency
  3. Baste the spring-form cake pans with ghee or coconut oil and pour the mixture into the pans. Cook for 40 – 50 minutes at 150◦C
  4. Test the cake with a fork before you take it out of the oven and when ready, remove cakes from the oven and take them out of the spring-form pans as soon as you can. Let the cakes cool on a cooling rack
  5. You can place any filling in the middle or on the top of the cake with a little creativity. The berry filling works well as a middle filling for the cakes and the top of the cake works well with sour cream and fresh berries. Alternatively, you can try the cake icing below and use it for the top layer with fresh berries on top as shown in the picture.
Filling Instructions
  1. Combine berries, apples, lemon juice and honey in a saucepan and bring ingredients to boiling point, then turn the temperature down and continue cooking the mixture slowly on a low heat. Stir frequently as it thickens
  2. Place the ingredients in the fridge to set for 4 hours
Chocolate Icing Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender. If possible, let them sit in there for a few minutes to soften the dates a little bit.
  2. Blend all ingredients in your high-speed blender. The ingredients can be a little tricky to blend, so start at a slow speed and increase speed slowly
  3. Keep blending for a very long time to get a velvety consistency. This is one of those recipes that really makes use of the power of a high-speed blender. If you feel that the blades are just spinning but aren't actually moving all of the icing around, turn the blender off and make an air pocket down the side of the blender with a spatula to expose the blades. Remove the spatula, replace the lid, and start blending slowly again.
  4. You'll know it's ready if there are no bits of dates and all you can taste is velvety chocolate goodness. This raw chocolate icing is ready to use as soon as you pour it out of the blender
  5. Simply use a spatula to spread the mixture on the sides and top of the cake.
Recipe Notes

Serve with some sour cream, kefir, yoghurt or creme fraiche
