Servings: 4 -6
For the Raw Cinnamon Almond Crumble
- ½ cup raw almonds
- ½ cup pitted medjool dates
- ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon cardamom
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Coconut Whipped Cream
- 1 cup coconut cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (or stevia, to taste)

To Make the Raw Cinnamon Almond Crumble
Add the almonds, dates, oats, cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla extract to a food processor. Pulse 10 times and then process for 1-2 minutes until a crumbly, slightly-sticky mixture forms. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
To Make the Coconut Whipped Cream
Add the coconut cream, powdered sugar or stevia, and vanilla bean seeds to a medium mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer with whisk attachments and whip the coconut cream on high for 3-4 minutes until a thick whipped cream forms. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
In small bowls or jars, layer a mixture of the berries and top with the crumble, a dollop of coconut whipped cream, and a drizzle of the caramel sauce. Repeat once more and garnish with fresh berries on top.
