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 Michelle, I actually get this one to slice up really nicely, like in the picture. Did you keep it in the freezer? Just make sure to cut all the way down to the bottom - because the crust gets really hard and it takes a strong arm to cut. But it does cut nicely and keeps its shape when frozen.

Sounds yum! I struggle with dates in the blender though - always becomes a bit of a sticky mess and doesn't blend properly...am I doing something wrong?

This one's gotta be made in the food processor, not the blender :)

I don't own a food processor. Will I get the same results for the crust with my Vitamix?

Hi Tali,

Vitamix blender is for liquidy things (smoothie, sauce, soup, etc.) and food processor is for dryier stuff (brownies, cookie batter, pie crust, etc.)

No, the results will NOT be the same with a Vitamix. You definitely need a food processor, but it doesn't have to be a good one! I have had this one for 4 years and it gets the job done: http://tinyurl.com/avdwva4

To make raw recipes it is best to own an expensive, fabulous blender (like the Vitamix: http://tinyurl.com/b8a967w) and a cheapy food processor (like this one : http://tinyurl.com/avdwva4). They serve different purposes.

Hope this helps!

I made it in the blender...hard! But fun! I wish i had a food processor!!! Or a Kitchen Aid would be more amazing!!! While making the apple filling, I put the crust in the oven to bring the nutty flavor out! Wow, that made it more wonderful. Then I added the filling, and baked it again for 20 mins! So good! I love that i can freezzz this! Awesome! Thank you for an amazing healthy recipie!

Can you tell me how long you baked the crust? Temperature? And then you baked it again with the filling? Would love to know what you did! Thank you!

I made this tonight as my first raw food recipe and it was really nice but very rich one slice and I was stuffed full. Also it tasted a bit salty but maybe I got the measurement wrong. Thanks so much for these recipe's. We just got a food processor so was really fun to make this. Also fresh dates are $24 kg in NZ so I used dried baking dates and it worked ok. Might soak the dates first next time.

Hi Kyle, I live in NZ too - I never use the fresh dates in any recipe - way too expensive. But i buy dates in bulk from gilmores and a quick soak - even 5-10 minutes before using them makes them work fine in all the recipes. You may find as you experiment more with raw, that you have to substitute cheaper nuts - nz can be pretty expensive for those too! Have fun in your raw food journey! Shirley
