A lot of you know that I used to eat a lot of Raw foods and that I have recently been transitioning back into it. I need to be as healthy as possible and try anything I can to keep my RSD in check. I think last time I lacked support. A lot of my friends just laughed and poked fun. Calling me things like “Hippie”…ya, tons of support. I am certainly not a hippie, but I truly don’t like the way I feel. Atleast on a Raw foods diet I have more energy, I’m in a better mood and I feel healthier. My pain may not go away, but anything that makes me feel a little bit better is better than nothing.
So, I have support this time. I joined a meet-up class that meets every Sunday. Every Sunday we learn about nutrition and bring recipes to share. It’s like this awesome raw food pot luck! There are some really amazing people up there. People that have even beat cancer with raw foods. I’m not kidding!
So this week I made a Raw Apple Pie. It was easy and cheap! I was so nervous about taking this dish. At the end of the meal it looked like the dish was licked clean! They even had a vote and I won best dish of the night! There were children there and they wanted more! I wish I had doubled the batch! I am sure that this would be a hit with anyone! Raw or not! In fact, I am going to take it to the next gathering we go to where we need to bring a dish.
Raw Apple Pie Recipe – It’s GOOD FOR YOU!
What you will need
- 6 Large Apples. We used Delicious Red.
- 12oz of Medjool Dates
- 12oz Raw Pecans
- Lemon Juice
I used a large casserole dish so that it would serve more people. This made for a thinner crust. If you want a traditional pie, then use a pie pan and you will have a thicker crust. The crust is AMAZING!
Take the pecans and process them into small crumbs in the food processor. Then add 1/2 of the dates (be sure to remove the pits!) and Cinnamon to taste. I like a lot of cinnamon flavor. Process this, occasionally scraping the sides down until you have a doughy consistency.
You’ll want to press this down into your casserole dish or into your pie pan. Again, I chose the casserole dish. When you are finished pressing down your crust place this into the freezer to firm up.
Next you want to prepare the apple filling! Wash your apples. You can peel them if you like, but I didn’t. Too much trouble for me. Take 4 of the apples and slice them. Place these in a bowl.
Take the other 2 apples and chop them into cubes and place in the cubed apples in the food processor with the remaining Medjool Dates, 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice and Cinnamon to taste.
Process this until it is an apple sauce consistency.
Then mix the processed apples with the sliced apples.
After you have mixed this up and all the slices are coated you can spread this onto (or into if using a pie pan) your crust.
If you are not eating it right away, then put it in the refrigerator until you are ready. It will be devoured! If you do happen to have left overs then they should be put into the refrigerator and should keep well for 2-3 days.
