The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw pie crusts are an integral part of your raw recipe arsenal!

I just love this raw pie crust recipe. I mean, four ingredients and the taste of this raw pie crust is to die live for! I wouldn't change a thing about this one. The flavors and measurements are perfect, IMO.

This raw pie crust recipe is my go-to, standby raw pie crust. I like this recipe even better than carob or cacoa crusts. I have heard some people call this recipe a "shortbread" recipe, and this one raw pie crust recipe does remind me of shortbread... that salty sweetness takes me back to my childhood!

It is so simple and you can whip it up in a flash with some pretty basic ingredients. It also presses down very easily into a pie plate.

This recipe makes enough for one pie crust. You can top this crust with anything you like. I prefer topping this raw pie crust with thawed rasberries and other wet berries. I often keep the crust on its own, and I don't top it until we're ready to eat it to avoid the crust getting soggy. (I hate soggy pie crusts!!)

I plan to try this, but I am looking for a pie crust recipe that is not too sweet. I don't want to add much, if any, sweetness to the filling. Do you know of a recipe that isn't sweet?

I don't know exactly what you do and do not eat, but I have a recipe on my plant-foods blog for raw chocolate orange raisin pie. The crust IS sweet and orangey but you can make it otherwise; it is made of organic oat flakes ground into flour, and flax meal. It can be made as a raw fridge-crust or dehydrated, or baked as per personal tastes/circumstances. I also made a savoury quiche crust once using oats, macadmia nuts, flax meal, and lemon juice. (but I have never written down the quantities) You could, of course substitute oats for a nut "flour" if you do not eat oats. Best wishes.

Hmmm. This one isn't *too* sweet, but it wouldn't hold together very well without the dates I don't think.

I am allergic to dates. Do you have any suggestions for a substitute. I cannot have dried apricots either, but can eat raisins. Didn't know if it would alter the flavor too much.

Hi Helene, in general, dried prunes are my #1 substitue for dates in most raw recipes. Second choice is raisins.

Hi Sonit, you do not need to dehydrate them. You can use them right from the store.  "dry" just literally means not wet (some people will soak their nuts so that they are wet first, but I don't want you to do that for this recipe)

I tried this recipe with my 3 carnivores (husband and two boys) and it was a big hit. Thank you for your innovative and healthy recipe!

I plan on trying it this week. Can you dehydrate this crust also and if so at what temp and how long? Do you have a good recipe for a raw non dairy, soy free whipped topping?

Thanks!

Hi Kenda, no this crust isn't really made for dehydrating. It will be too crumbly.

Yum! Sounds delish! Is this a raw vegan cooking class or just general cooking class?
