Vegan Cherry Cobbler

Last Thanksgiving my sister made us a raw cherry cobbler that was out of this world. Today I saw a jar of sour cherries at the supermarket and bought it, hoping that I could replicate the cobbler at home. What I ended up with isn't quite what Jenn served us, since hers used dates and I didn't have any, but it is truly good and worth sharing.

This is recipe not raw food, because the cherries are heat treated when they are jarred. If you wanted to be properly raw, you would use frozen cherries, thawed.

Vegan Cherry Cobbler
serves 4

crumb layer
1 cup coconut
1 cup mixed walnuts and almonds
3 prunes
4 dried apricots

Process everything until crumbly. Set aside.

fruit layer
2 cups jarred sour cherries, drained very well
2 prunes
6 dried apricots
dash of cinnamon
dash of cardamom
honey or sugar (optional)

Process everything until smooth or only slightly lumpy. Sour cherries can be a bit too sour, so sweeten to taste with honey or sugar.

Layer the fruit and crumb mixtures into clear glasses for a fancy individual presentation, or make a big bowl for family style pig-out.

I used fresh cherries. I remember being astounded at the fact that they were available, and right there in the front of the produce section!

We're trying a lot of vegan recipes around here lately. Is it just me, or is it tough to be a vegan if you have nut allergies?

Nuts make veganism a lot easier, that is for sure, but I think you could work around them, just like you can be a gluten-free vegan.

If I were doing this recipe without nuts, I would substitute mixed seeds, or graham cracker/cookie crumbs, or even bread crumbs with a bit of fat and sweetener. Perhaps a combination of seeds and crumbs.
