Fall Favourites: Raw Apple Pie

This recipe is amazing. Not only is it addictive and delicious, it is extremely healthy, raw and beyond easy to make. The ingredient list is minimal but you will need a food processor to get the best results. I highly recommend making this dessert to share at your Thanksgiving dinner!

Recipe from Sweetly Raw


2 cups pecans
1 cup walnuts
¾ cup pitted dates

6 medium sized apples
½ cup pitted dates
¼ cup raisins
2 tsp cinnamon


Start by making the crust. In a food processor, combine all ingredients until they become crumbly. Press half of the mixture into a 9” pie plate and set the other half aside. To create the filling, core the apples (feel free to leave the skin on) and puree two of them in a food processor until the texture is like applesauce. Add the dates, raisins and cinnamon and process until thoroughly combined. Transfer this mixture to a large bowl. Roughly chop the remaining four apples and then pulse in the food process to cut them into small chunks – make sure you do not over process and turn these into applesauce. Combine the apple chunks with the apple, date, raisin and cinnamon mixture in the bowl and then spread the filling into the pie crust. Sprinkle the remaining crust over the filling and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.

Tip: Use a sharp knife to cut the pie and it will be easy to serve and stay together.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
