Recipe Directions

I recommend using Ceramic Peeler or Ceramic Knife for this recipe because it will keep the apples fresher longer otherwise they will oxidize and wilt very quickly if you use metal knives. So make really thin slices of Fuji Apples, you can also use Gala Apples or Asian Pear Apples for a more gourmet flavor. Place very thin slices on a plate.

I recommend the Blendtec Blender for this recipe because it will be able to grind the sunflower seeds or pistachio nuts into the perfect sand like size, I don’t know of other equipment or ways to do it so if you have alternative ways then go for it otherwise place the sunflower seeds or pistachio nuts in the Blendtec Blender and blend until it grinds it into very fine sand like powder, you can make it larger sizes for more crunch if you like too. Pour this into a large mixing bowl. Then add really raw agave and stir by hand until well coated and mixed. Use this mixture and use a spoon or your hands to put in between the thin apple slices. You can then cut it into traditional square or diamond Baklava Shapes and serve! To improve this sprinkle some organic cinnamon inside, on top and drizzle with a little more agave on top but this is optional but will really improve the flavor. Also this recipe demonstrates how in some recipes agave is necessary and dates probably won’t work in this one. I will post a few more photos and recipes from my 1st book and hope you enjoy them! :D

In the photo I actually held the plate in one hand and took the photo with the other! This is a new “floating food” style of photography I came up with for fun, many people asked me if I photoshopped my photos and I did not and this is with the camera my Sister gave to me as a present I wish it did not give out on me recently! Also my tip is to take photos outdoors in the sun, this gives food an amazing photographic quality try it! This photo was in San Francisco in Golden Gate Park at the Conservatory of Flowers I thought it looked cool as the background. I have since came up with a new style of food photography where it is more on an extreme close up but still done outside in the sun.

I have also tried other nuts like almonds, brazil nuts in this recipe but I found that sunflower seeds and pistachio tastes the best in this particular recipe.

I just added a new McRAW Photo Shopped graphic I just did recently, my goal is to open a National sort of “McRaw” nationwide or a RAW Franchise to be exact, heck if Jamba Juice and Starbucks can do it RAW CAN TOO! So lets RAWCK! :D Feel free to copy it, distribute, make stickers, t-shirts!

Rawbryan's Thoughts

My sister gave me a Digital Camera for Christmas 3 years ago and I actually used it for all the photos in my book RAW IN TEN MINUTES, website and all my new photos. But it finally broke or gave out and until I can get a new camera or fix it I can’t post new recipes that I invent everyday. So I am posting recipes and photos from my first raw organic recipe book I hope you enjoy this fun simple easy one my Raw Organic Baklava! I am not sure if you can use dates in this as I have not tried but I use really raw agave some people say agave is not really raw but I found once source that really is and they are able to supress the fermentation process naturally but this one source I have really is raw you can tell by the clear sappy nature but amazing nectar and high energy taste and vibe. I hope you enjoy this recipe, kids love it and it is safe for them to help you make it, I invented totally raw organic versions of all my favorite junk and cooked foods so that I can enjoy all natural raw organic healthy foods and want to share them with you, the raw community is about love, laughter, sharing so enjoy!

Also being in San Francisco really allowed me to come up with all my raw recipes there are a lot of amazing health food stores and ingredients Rainbow Grocery is where I shop their prices and selection is the best. It helped me a lot to be living in San Francisco when I wrote RAW IN TEN MINUTES I probably could not have come up with this book or these recipes if I was not there in 2004/2005. I also went to college there and got into Yoga. I wrote my autobiography and detailed my life story but decided to release it at a later date, a lot of people asked me for it but once I finished it no one really ordered it so I will wait until later, it is a really amazing fun to read story...

Yes you should visit San Francisco it is an AMAZING city and very different, beautiful, the views are very unique, the cable cars, funky people, art, very great to visit too the best for tourists in the world. You should check it out when you get the chance also Cafe Gratitude is very famous for their raw food restaurant there, I lived near their original location when I was writing RAW IN TEN MINUTES. Honey may be too sweet for this recipe might not work, agave is really the way to go in this one but you can try different things...pumpkin seeds I tried in this recipe and it didn't really work, it was too crunchy and the texture was off I tried all the nuts and sunflower and pistachio really worked the best, I thought almonds might work but it did not for some reason, enjoy!

Do you think pumpkin seeds would work, or would the taste be 'off' for baklava?

Very beautiful setting, I haven't been out west that far(an east coast girl) but it looked great. I'm not a huge date person, I can do a few but that's it, so the agave is OK with me. I do prefer honey, but then again have a local place that sells good stuff. I will have to experiment with it all, using the apples though is brilliant!

Hi Blueyz this is the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco I wrote RAW IN TEN MINUTES and opened PA~RAW~DISE 100% Raw Organic Cuisine Restaurant there in Union Square in 2005 but the restaurant is no longer and I don't live in San Francisco but I miss that city very beautiful and fun place! The Golden Gate Park has a great story behind it where this guy traveled all around the world to bring back rare and endangered plants/trees/flowers, the building above is part of the movement to protect rare and almost extinct orchids, flowers, etc.

I have not tried it with dates but I imagine it might work but agave works best in this recipe as it keeps the ingredients together, also Agave has a lighter flavor/consistency and is lower in sugar or glycemic index some recipes really call for agave but if you are really into dates go for it! Also the apple slices really do hold up and I find that the thinner the slices the better the taste in this recipe so slice it VERY THIN. I pop the whole thing in my mouth it is a bite full of BLISS otherwise it will fall apart kind or and make a mess if you try to "bite it". And yes cut it into fun square shapes or traditional Baklava Diamond shapes to make it more authentic I hope you enjoy it and I will add more photos and recipes from my 1st Book. :D

The picture is awesome, I love how it looks as if the plate is simply on top of the flowers. What building is that?

I love this idea, it likely could be adapted with dates (or honey for those OK with it). I never would have thought of the apples instead of the dough, I love it!! Do the apple slices hold up to taking one bite then another, or do you end up having to pop the whole thing into your mouth at once? Should it be cut bite size??
