Winter is almost behind us! Only one month and we will be into spring!!! I can actually feel the buzz in the air, the chirping birds and warm sun... it's getting so close! So to pay my respects to the lovely but fleeting autumn and winter months, here is one of my favorite recipes:
Raw Apple Crisp (link to Whole Foods, my version is below)
1 cup of Chopped, Mixed Nuts (I use Walnuts and Almonds usually)
1/4 cup Raisins (optional)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/4 cup Orange Juice (optional)
1/2 cup Protein Powder (I use Perfect Fit RAW Brown Rice Protein), also optional
Blueberries are also a great addition. Mix it up and make it a delicious Fruit Crisp!
Chop fruit, nuts and mix with raisins and spices (and protein powder). Coat and combine. Add any liquid and mix thoroughly. Enjoy!!!
