Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place all crust ingredients in the food processor. Process until the mixture sticks together and the dates are well processed.
  • 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

By The Rawtarian

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!

When inventing this raw apple pie recipe, I used Granny Smith crisp green apples. You can use whatever medium/largish apples you have on hand. I do NOT peel any of the apples, don't bother.

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.)

Tip: If you want to get fancy with your apple pie, you could top it with this yummy raw whipped cream recipe. (But I rarely do 'cause I'm not that fancy.)

Tip: You can stir 1 tbsp raisins into the wet appley-mixture like I did in the photo above :)

Hi JPS, no you can't omit it since you need that extra bulk. You can substitute hempseed hearts though. Or 1/2 hempseed hearts and 1/2 more cashews = 1 cup coconut in crust

Hi, i love this recipe, but have a doubt, what do you exactly call dried, unsweetened coconut? Is it a dried coconut pulp? I'm from Argentina... Thnks!

Hi Alejandra, it is used in baking - little pieces of flakey, dried white coconut. Purchased at a grocery store, used to make coconut macaroons, for example. You can buy it in North America in grocery stores in the baking aisle - there is usually a sweetened and an unsweetened variety

I have made this apple pie many times since December, the kids and my husband request it all the time! Because we eat so much of it, i have doubled the filling recipe and it tastes just as great! Even my non-raw-vegan family/friends like this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Hi there! I made this yesterday & we had it for dessert after a gorgeous raw salad. It was delicious! I had to resist going back for more :-) Today we got a really great deal on "seconds" of pears, so I'm going to try something similar to create a Spiced Ginger Pear Pie. Wish me luck!

I can't wait to make this recipe! Since I am trying to avoid saturated fat when possible, could I substitute the coconut for something else?

Hi Jerrod, normally I would suggest hempseed hearts as a sub for coconut in this recipe, although I bet the hemphearts would have more fat than coconut :)

Thanks for the suggestion! Hempseed Hearts are actually much lower in saturated fat than dried unsweetened coconut so that works great! :)

Interesting! I never would have guessed that, since hempseed hearts are so yummy and so filling and so greasy in a really nice, satisfying way :)

I made this and it turned out great. I added buckwheat and raisins to the base and added a dash of orange juice and raisins to the apple mixture. :-). Please keep the recipes coming. Thanks.

Hi Lorraine, I LOVE your addition ideas! Orange juice sure does add a nice zip of additional flavour. One of my goals is to provide basic recipes (like this one) that work perfectly fine on their own if you make them exactly as written, but that you can also jazz up the recipe in exactly this way if you are motivated and want to experiment a bit.... That way the recipe is accessible and not too overwhelming, but you can experiment with it as you like. So your comment makes me happy Lorraine :)
