Raw apple pie

This is one of the great recipes we learned throughout our holistic food preparation course at the institute of holistic nutrition. It is raw, vegan, dairy free and gluten-free. This recipe is for a 7’-9’ size pie.

You’ll need:

For the crust:

⁃ 1/2 cup each of coconut shreds, sunflower seeds, almonds

⁃ 1 tsp of vanilla extract

For the filling:

⁃ 4 medium apples, cored and sliced thinly on a mandolin (keep the “odds and ends”

⁃ 1/2 cup dates soaked in water

⁃ 2 tsp cinnamon

⁃ 1 pinch of salt

⁃ Juice of 1 🍋

Start by making your crust – place all ingredients in a high speed blender (add a bit of water if you can’t get it to a consistency where it can be pressed down) and press crust mixture into your pie dish, creating a raised edge.

For the filling, after you’ve sliced your apples on a mandolin, keep the “odds and ends” for blending into the sauce for your pie. Place them in a blender together with the dates, lemon juice, cinnamon and salt. Process until smooth.

Combine the apple slices and the sauce in a bowl, then spread them out on the pie shell in a pretty pattern (or not, like me 😁). You can also decorate with pecan or walnut halves lined around the perimeter if you like.

Chill for 1-2 hours then slice and enjoy!
