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 :)

Made this in my "Maya's Weekend Baking Adventures" Loved it. Had to make 2 cakes because I ate some (most) of the first cake during prep :) Def a good choice though! Still got some apples spare so planning on making another cake, or selecting a different raw apple recipe to :)
Thanks Rawtarian

"Maya's Weekend Baking Adventures" sound fun! Hate it when that happens about eating the first batch right out of the dish. It happens to me too - too many times! lol

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.
