Apple Date Paste
2 cups (265g) chopped apple
12-14 (240g with pits removed) pitted medjool dates
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup (60g) Ceres Organics Sunflower Butter
1 cup (300g) apple date paste ((above))

Pinch of salt
1/2 cup (150g) apple date paste ((above))
1-2 (360g) apples, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp Simply Organic Nutmeg Ground
Preheat the oven to 175C.
Combine the 2 cups chopped apple and lemon juice in a high speed blender. Blend until liquified.
Add the rest of the paste ingredients and blend until smooth.
In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the paste with the coconut flour and salt. Mix until sticky and clumpy.
Press half of the dough into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Set the rest aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the sliced apples (You can use a mandolin to slice them super thin) with 1/2 cup of the paste, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Toss to coat.
Arrange the apple slices on top of the crust in layers.
Crumble the remaining crust over top. Press in lightly.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toasty golden brown on top.
Remove from the oven. Cool for 10-15 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
