Raw Vegan Apple Pie – Yum!
6 apples peeled and thinly sliced
2 tsp cinnamon

1 orange peeled
1/2 cup pitted dates
splash of water

2 cups raw almonds
2 cups dates
1 tsp sea salt

To make the crust, pulse almonds and salt in food processor until nuts are in small pieces. You want your crust to have chunks of almonds in it, so dont over process. Use some of the finer almond powder to ‘flour’ your pie plate.
Slowly add dates into processor in small batches to mix with almond bits. The dates will bind with the almonds to form a dough. Press the dough into the bottom of the ‘floured’ pie plate. Set aside.

To make syrup place orange into your vitamix/food processor and puree it, then add dates and blend. If needed add small amounts of water to help everything mix well. Set aside.

To make filling, place sliced, peeled apples in a large bowl (add 1 cup raisins if you like) Toss with 2 tsp cinnamon and syrup. Spoon filling into pie crust. Enjoy!

Will keep for 2 days in fridge.
