IMG_20170531_122144

Crust:

– walnuts, soaked and finely crushed

– dates

– coconut oil (optional)

– vanilla extract or powder (optional)

Filling:

– apples (your favorite kind), shredded

– dates

– apple cider vinegar

– lemon juice

– sea salt

– cinnamon

 

Combine coconut oil, walnuts, dates, and vanilla together and pulse the mixture in your blender or food processor. When you are satisfied with the consistency, cover the bottom of a pie pan with the mixture and press down with a spoon or your fingers (about half a thumbnail thickness). Set aside.

Process dates with apple cider vinegar, lemon, sea salt, and cinnamon until you have a dough-like paste.

Add finely chopped or shredded apples to the date paste and mix well.

Pour the apple/date mixture over the crust and spread to desired thickness.

Garnish with raisins or any other dried fruit.

Serve right away, freeze for 1 hour, or dehydrate at 113F for 1-2 hours if you prefer the pie warm.
