Raw Apple Pie

I tried making this for the first time last night. I didn't have dates, but I had a ton of raisins. I need to make this a bit less-liquidy next time.

Crust: organic raisins, raw sunflower seeds, ground cinnamon, raw almonds (a few), all blended.

Filling: organic gala apples (about 6), agave nectar, more cinnamon, fresh lemon juice, coconut shredded

Below is the crust.
I put the apples in the food processor. I could have made them larger to prevent all the liquid. Next time I will. This was really tasty though and now that I have a base and understanding, I'm going to play around with it.

This honestly looks like one of the better raw desserts I've seen, especially homemade. Very creative. Did you base it off a recipe or wing it?

Hey Jess. This was basically winged (wung?! hehe). I have had a wonderful raw pie at a local restaurant (all organic, all vegan, woo hoo) and I tried to base it off of that. I didn't have dates, so I knew I was going to use the raisins instead (kind of a mistake). It was really good, still is, but I chopped in the processor too long and forgot walnuts too. I need to do a lot of modifying.

Jess... I really like the name of your blog too! Super-cute and creative. I kept thinking of your blog name over the weekend while eating an apple scone!

Hi Leslie,
Have you tried to make this pie again? Can you give me the directions (process) or guide of how much of each ingredient you used? I have had the raw apple pie at Gentle Strength as well, and would love to have some way to mimic it at home, so I don't have to pay $5 a slice. :)

Hi Maureen. I don't remember the measurements and I'm glad that I didn't because this was way to mushy! I would just Google- a new recipe and maybe combine a few here and there. I don't know how they do it at the co-op, maybe dates, coconut, etc. At the Wild Garden Cafe they have awesome apple pie and that's what I was trying to mimic, but I had raisins not dates.

I'm sorry I can't help you here Maureen. Let me know if you find a good recipe, ok.
