Apple, Persimmon, Cranberry Crisp

 

When two friends show up with gifts – one with persimmons and one with apples, it must be time to make a pie!

Ingredients

Filling

  • 5 persimmons, peeled and sliced
  • 4 apples, peels and sliced
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Crumble

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 8 tablespoons vegan butter
  • ½ cup turbinado sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Process

Mix all filling ingredients and place in a deep pie pan or baking dish.

Mix all crumble ingredients and cut butter in (or mix and pinch with hands) until evenly distributed and sprinkle over the filling mix (note: I pressed it down a little too much on this one).

Bake at 400* for 35 minutes. Add time until the crumble is browned.

Vegan Apple Breakfast Cookies

Need a cookie for breakfast? Sometimes I do. These are delicious and have very little in them to feel guilty about.

Ingredients

2 mashed bananas
2 cups smooth peanut butter
½ cup agave
1 cup raisins
3 cups chopped apples
2 cups oats
1 ½  cups wheat flour
1 ½  t. baking soda
1 T. cinnamon
½ t. salt

Process

Mix first 3 ingredients until smooth. Combine all dry ingredients and then add in the wet mixture. Stir to thoroughly combine. Add additional flour if needed to reduce stickiness until dough can be dropped onto baking sheet in large balls and flattened to about ½ inch in thickness.

Bake 10-15 minutes at 350* until lightly browned on the bottom. Allow to cool and set. If keeping overnight, it might be good to chill these, as they are a fairly “wet” cookie.

Makes 24 large cookies.
