Apple Cobbler

This Apple Cobbler is my favorite fall dessert! It’s super easy to make with all whole-food ingredients that you probably have on hand.  It’s vegan and is sweetened with apples, figs or dates and has no nuts or oils. It’s so healthy you could have it for breakfast! 






Fruit Filling

6 cups chopped apples, divided

3 dried figs or dates soaked* in ¼ cup water

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla


Chop apples with chop wizard (if available or use other chopper or by hand). Place 3 cups in a large mixing bowl. Place remaining 3 cups apples, soaked figs or dates, water, spices and vanilla in food processor fitted with S blade or blender jar. Blend until smooth. Pour over bowl of chopped apples.  Mix well and transfer to an 8 X 11 cake pan.



2 cups rolled oats

2 cups chopped apples

4 dried figs or dates soaked in ¼ cup water

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla


Place oats in a mixing bowl.

Blend apples with figs or dates, water, cinnamon and vanilla until smooth. Pour over oats and mix well till all oats are moist. Carefully place crust over apple filling and spread to cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

“I’ve been using the recipes in your cookbooks. I love the Spicy pumpkin soup and your mustard potatoes…. yum! I cook up a batch of the potatoes and freeze them to use for meals for my brother. Usually potatoes get mushy in the freezer but these seem to be OK. I tried the Peppermint Patty’s and really liked them too! Thanks!”  K. Page, St. George, Utah

“I just love your cookbooks! I’ve been gradually working towards a plant based diet since about 2012 and have used a few really good cookbooks – the happy herbivore books, the China Study Books, Engine 2 etc — which all gave me a great foundation for this approach. Your cookbooks have offered new ways of seeing some of the recipes . I’ve made a few of the deserts, some of the loafs, and breakfasts. Great use of herbs and spices, and I like the fact that the ingredients are very simple to use. ” Thanks again, Sue

Whole Food Goodness and Whole Food American Favorites contain a collection of my favorite high nutrient whole food plant based recipes. My recipes are unique in that they contain no extracted oils, minimal processed sugars, and limited processed grains. I use an abundance of leafy green vegetables, which are the healthiest foods on the planet and have the greatest power to cleanse, detoxify, and repair damaged cells and bring you greater health for life.

Along with the recipes, you will find quotes from some of my favorite nutrition experts and documented research studies that will tell you why it’s important to eat a plant based diet. Knowledge is power and it is my hope and prayer that these books will help you gain the strength and determination to make the changes necessary that will bring you excellent health throughout your entire life!
