1 cup cashews
1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup dates
Apple pie ingredients:
3 (2+1) medium apples
1 cup dates
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2. Dump crust mixture into your pie crust/glass dish. Press the crust down firmly in your dish with your hands. (Crust is now done.)
3. Roughly chop two apples, get rid of core/seeds. (Leave one apple alone, OK?)
4. Place all filling ingredients (EXCEPT THAT ONE APPLE, LEAVE ONE APPLE ALONE) in the food processor. Process until it’s well mixed – a wettish mixture with a few small date chunks or apple peel that might not disappear. (You might have to pause and scrape the sides and then process again.)
5. Throw wet appley-mixture into a big bowl.
6. Slice the last apple into thin slices or small chunks. Throw these apple slices/chunks into the wet appley mixture. Stir gently.
7. Dump appley-mixture (wet + sliced apples) on top of crust. Smooth out with spoon.
8. Cover and throw in freezer. Ready in half-an-hour!
9. This raw apple pie recipe should always be kept in the freezer. (It’ll get soggy if in the fridge.)
The Rawtarian’s Thoughts
This is how it works: Just make the crust, press it down into a pan. Then process most of the raw apple pie filling, then slice the remaining apple. Stir together the appley-mixture and the sliced apple. Dump the appley-stuff on top of the crust, spread it out. Cover and throw this raw apple pie recipe in the freezer.
The presentation is “okay” and not something that I would serve to impress a stranger or my boss, but it’s great for a family dessert that tastes great and satisfies that craving for apple pie – raw style!
Your easy raw apple pie will keep in the freezer for about a week.
Tip: Make the crust first and then the filling right after. (This way you don’t have to wash the food processor twice!)
Tip: For the crust, if you don’t have cashews you could use pecans (or walnuts) instead for the crust. (But cashews have the most neutral flavour, which is best.)
Tip: You can stir 1 tbsp raisins into the wet appley-mixture like I did in the photo above 🙂
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
