Are you looking for a dessert that is sweetened only by nature?
If so, you've come to the right dessert post where artificial sugar is out and all-natural is in. And thanks to the moist and plump Mariani dates, this apple crisp is infused with love from a family-owned farm.
President's Day is soon to arrive. And for some reason, every time I think about this holiday I always think about apples, cherries, DC and George Washington.
Apples are a quintessential colonial dessert ingredient. Even Ralph Waldo Emerson described apples as "The American fruit," although they originate from the Old World. And well, nothing is more American than American pie. And instead of spending time making a pie, an apple crisp is a quick-and-easy, classic recipe. But, this crisp has a modern twist, it contains zero refined sugar!
Mariani dates are moist, plump and ready to be blended into one of my favorite recipes, date caramel. Besides fiber, most people do not realize that dates are a natural source for our electrolytes such as: magnesium, manganese, and calcium. When we obtain electrolytes naturally, there's no reason to reach for those artificial sport drinks.
Nature provides everything that we need, and plant-based recipes can be the source of that fuel. The more natural you eat, the more natural you'll feel. You'll get connected to the energy of the land and the natural rhythms of the body. Overconsumption of artificially manmade substances is "poisonous" longterm.
"Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy."
