Recipe: Amazing Raw Apple Pie

This recipe is from the book "Raw Food - A complete guide for every meal of the day" by Erica Palmcrantz and Irmela Lilja.
I tweaked it a bit to fit our needs, and it came out just great.

This is what you need for the crust: 
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil 
  • 5 Dates 
  • 2 Tsp cinnamon 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 1 Tbs raw honey or maple syrup  
Chop the nuts in food processor. Add the oil, dates, cinnamon and salt and mix. Add honey or syrup, mix. Spread and press the dough on the bottom of a pie dish. 

For the filling you need:  
  • 2 Apples 
  • 1 Banana * 2 Dates 
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon  
Thoroughly blend all the ingredients in a food processor, and spread inside the crust. 

For the garnish you need:
  • 3 Apples, sliced (I peeled them so my kids were more likely to eat the pie :-) 
  • Cinnamon  
Garnish the pie with sliced apples and sprinkle cinnamon on top.  I especially like about this recipe that it was easy to make and didn't require any preparation such as soaking nuts etc, what you usually have to do for raw recipes. It came out so yummy and the whole family liked it very much.
