Raw Vegan Cherry Cobbler with Walnut, Date, and Chia Crumble Topping

raw vegan cherry cobbler
YIELD: 4 servings

Can you believe this cobbler is raw, vegan and healthy? Natural Delights® Medjool dates keep this crumble together.


  • For the Cherry Filling
  • 3 cups cherries, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • For the Crumble Topping
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 1/3 cups pitted medjool dates, tightly packed
  • 2 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Toss the cherries with the maple syrup and lemon juice. Divide them into four ramekins or other small serving bowls.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together the walnuts, Medjool dates, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and salt. Continue pulsing until the mixture is crumbly and broken down, but not quite sticky the way you'd want a snack bar base to be.
  3. Divide the topping over the four bowls and serve with whipped cream, if desired. If you have extra topping left over, it will work nicely over oats, as a smoothie garnish, or served with fresh berries!

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
