There’s nothing like a slice of apple pie this time of year and this vegan-friendly raw take on the classic will totally satisfy any cravings. This dessert focuses on the flavors of fresh apples rather than baked and gets a uniquely sweet flavor thanks to the addition of dates and a hint of fresh orange. Find the recipe here http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/fresh-take-apple-pie.
8 ounces pitted dates
2 cups sliced almonds
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 whole orange, peeled and sectioned
1/4 cup raisins
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 large Fuji or Gala apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup toasted unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
For the crust, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Place boiling water and dates in a small bowl and let soak for 10 minutes. Drain and reserve soaking liquid. Place dates, almonds, walnuts, cinnamon and salt in the bowl of a food processor; blend to form a sticky paste. (There will be larger pieces of nuts.) If needed, thin with a couple of tablespoons or more of reserved soaking liquid to help the blending process. Spoon the mixture into 9-inch pie plate; press over the bottom and up the sides to form the crust. Set aside.
For the filling, place orange, raisins, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds to finely chop the fruit and make some juice. Place sliced apples in a medium bowl and add orange-raisin mixture. Toss to coat completely. Transfer apple-mixture to prepared crust. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with coconut before serving.
