This uses an uncooked applesauce in a conventionally baked product. You could try this with a dehydrator instead, of course – at a guess it would take about 16 hours. I’m usually too impatient with this mixture to wait that long!
2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter
2/3 cup unsweetened, raw applesauce
1 1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup coconut
1/2 tsp cinnamon, a dash of ground cloves, and nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Combine everything in a mixing bowl, stirring to blend.
Put cookie-sized dollops on a lined baking tray and flatten slightly (round off the rustic shapes, if you care about appearances)
Bake for 20-30 mins at 180C/350F
Of course, the above is a bit of a detour into the cooking world, but we return to raw with this lovely, uncooked gingered apple crumble (In Celebration of Apples: 3/3)
