OH MY GAWD this is SO GOOD!
Yesterday, I decided to try a recipe for
Raw Apple Pie,
Raw Apple Pie,
and well, OH BABY is about all I can say.
There was enough of this filling for two pies, so I whipped up another crust. After it chilled for a couple hours, we shared some with our upstairs neighbours and they thought it was AWESOME! Later, we had company and nobody could believe it was raw, good for you, and had no sugar in it. It was so delicious, both pies are gone now as I type this! But it's so easy, it's nothing to whip up more :)
Equipment needed: food processor, dehydrator
7 fuji apples
juice from 1/2 lemon
*1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dates
1/8 teaspoon lemon zestRoughly chop 5 apples and pulse them in the food processor until they are in tiny pieces. Pour the lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon over them and dehydrate them on low for a few hours. (Rawkin' note: I did it for 4.) In a blender (or fp) blend 2 finely chopped apples (add to the blender first), 1 cup dates, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon lemon zest to make an apple sauce. Mix the applesauce and the dehydrated apples in a bowl. Pour the mixture into a pie crust. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
1 and 1/2 cups raw *almonds
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil (optional)
1 vanilla bean, seeds scooped out (optional)
Process almonds in a food processor with the S blade until a coarse almond flour. Add dates, coconut oil, and cinnamon to the food processor and process with the S blade until the mixture forms dough. Press the dough into a pie pan.
(Rawkin' note: I added spiralized apple 'laces' soaked in lemon juice for the top of the pie, and this added just the right 'tang'...)
*1/4 needed for dehydrated apples, 1/2 needed for apple 'sauce' mixture
*For a crispier crust you can soak the nuts then dehydrate before using.
Way. Too. Good.
