This quick and easy raw, vegan, gluten-free berry cobbler recipe is a truly healthy treat that still satisfies our desire for something sweet.


4-5 cups mixed berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries andblueberrie blackberries (usually a pint of strawberries with a ½ pint each of the others)
1 tablespoon agave nectar (vegan) or raw honey (non-vegan) or maple syrup (not a raw sweetener but delicious!)
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup dried unsweetened shredded coconut
½ cup walnut pieces
½ cup pecan pieces
4 large medjool dates, pitted and chopped
¼ teaspoon of almond extract
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon powder
Pinch of grated nutmeg
Pinch of sea salt
Preparation:   Gently wash the berries and drain well. Cut the stems from the strawberries and slice into wedges. Toss the berries with the agave and vanilla extract. Divide them amongst 4 dessert glasses and set aside.
Place the remaining ingredients -coconut, walnuts, pecans, dates, almond extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt- in a food processor and pulse the mixture until it is coarsely ground but still has texture. Divide the mixture between the 4 berry dishes, scattering evenly over the top to form a "crust". Enjoy!!
