Mango Apple Crisp
This simple dessert is topped with a grain-free crisp made from cashews, making it a good choice for anyone with wheat allergies. Sweet, juicy, luscious mangoes are known as the king of fruits. They are a rich source of vitamins A and C and also contain carotenoids, known to provide significant antitumor protection, enhance immune function, and reduce risk for cancer and heart disease.

2 TbspSafflower oil
2 TbspBrown sugar
1 TbspEgg replacer powder
2Sweet apples, thinly sliced and steamed until soft
1⁄4 tspnGround cardamom
2 tspnLemon juice
2 tspnfresh ginger juice*
1⁄4 cRaw sugar
3Large ripe mangoes,** sliced
1⁄4 cBrown sugar

- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the cashews in a baking dish and bake until light golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Remove from the heat, cool, and blend or process to a fine crumb consistency.
- In a bowl combine the ground nuts with the salt, oil, brown sugar, and egg replacer and mix well. Spread 1/3 of this mixture in an oiled 8x8-inch baking dish. Layer the steamed apples on the crumb mixture.
- Combine the second set of ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Arrange this mixture evenly over the steamed apple. Arrange the sliced mangoes on top. Sprinkle the brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla over the mangoes.
- Top with the remaining crumb mixture and sprinkle with date sugar if more sweetness is desired. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool and slice into small squares.
*To make fresh ginger juice, simply grate some fresh ginger, then manually squeeze the pulp.
**Substitute 3 cups fresh peaches for the mangoes if desired.
