What You'll Need
  • Crust
  • 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
  • The Filling
  • 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
  1. Put the sliced apples in a large bowl, add lemon juice and water to retain color and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Slice into 8 pieces and serve with raw vanilla ice cream. Mix 2 frozen bananas and 2 cups of vanilla almond milk.

I have made this pie for my vegan brother several times now. The first time was last Thanksgiving, and he loved it- and so did all the non-vegans! It is one of the sweetest, most delicious vegan desserts I've ever made, and there isn't one granule of sugar in it. I highly recommend this to people wanting to try something sugar free, vegans feeling the pie crust craving, or anyone just wanting to try something different!
