- 2 cups pecans
- 2 cups ditted dates, soaked in warm water for 20 mins
- 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut
- 1/2 cup almond pulp
- 6 apples - peeled and sliced thinly
- 1/2 cup pitted dates - soaked in warm water for 20 minutes
- 1/2 cup raisins - soaked in warm water for 20 minutes
- 2 tablespoons Cinnamon
- 1 lemon juiced
- 1 teaspoon sea-salt
- Put the sliced apples in a large bowl, add lemon juice and water to retain color and set aside.
- Put soaked dates, pecans & dried coconut in food processor with S blade and process until mixed well. It gets to be a very sticky mixture.
- Cover a 9” or 10” pie pan with dry almond pulp or ground almonds. This helps the sticky crust mixture from sticking to the pan.
- Firmly press the crust mixture evenly on top of the almond pulp. Make sure you spread the crust up the sides of the pan and pinch the crust all along the sides.
- Drain the apples from the lemon juice. Put half of the apples in a food processor with remaining filling ingredients and mix well. Remove the mixture from food processor and combine with the remaining sliced apples.
- Pour the filling in the pie pan and then place remaining sliced apples decoratively on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and put in freezer for about an hour to harden.
- Slice into 8 pieces and serve with raw vanilla ice cream. Mix 2 frozen bananas and 2 cups of vanilla almond milk.
