Raw Food’s raw Apple Pie

Published March 20, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So I recently got 2 raw food books, Raw Food: a complete guide for every meal of the day and Raw Food/Real World: 100 recipes to get the glow. I started with RF because it’s more of a beginner book as it doesn’t require the raw foodist fancies: a dehydrator, a spiralizer, a high powered blender. (Though I do have the vitamix, I have neither a dehydrator or spiralizer.) RF/RW is written by the owners of Pure Food & Wine in NYC, and the recipes are little more involved & advanced, but sound delicious.

It was pretty simple to make, but it does require a food processor. But the processor really does all the work for you.

The recipe and the picture! This is a really beautifully illustrated book.

The crust is mostly made up of the 1 3/4 cups almonds.

Finely ground.

Add some dates and spice and honey. Yes, I occasionally use honey. It would probably work with raw agave just fine.

Press into a pie plate.

Filling is apple, banana, dates, spices

Blended smooth.

Topped with a sliced apple…

and sprinkled with cinnamon!


This was really yummy! It was better and easier to cut/serve after a couple of days in the fridge. Recipe says 4 servings, but clearly it’s more like 8. It made a nice little brunch treat too.

Say a little something?
