Raw Apple Pie

For the Crust:


  • 2 Cups dried figs

  • 1 Cup pitted and packed Medjool dates

  • 3/4 Cup raw walnuts

  • 1 vanilla bean

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. Add the figs, dates, walnuts, vanilla bean seeds, cinnamon, and salt to a food processor. Pulse the mixture a few times and then process until you have a crumbly, sticky mixture (about 1 minute).

  2. Line the bottom of a 10” round tart pan with parchment paper and grease the sides with coconut oil.

  3. Pour the crust mixture into the tart pan, and use your hands to press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides to form a crust (tip: if the mixture is sticking to your hands, use a sheet of parchment and a lemon to roll it out.)

  4. Transfer the tart pan to the freezer for at least 30 minutes to set.

For the Apple Filling:


  • 5 large gala apples, peeled and cored, divided

  • 1/2 Cup pitted and packed Medjool dates

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of nutmeg

  • 2 Tbsp. white or black chia seed powder (whole chia seeds work fine as well)


  1. After you’ve peeled and cored the apples, roughly chop two of them.

  2. Add apples to food processor along with Medjool dates, cinnamon, chia powder, and nutmeg. Pulse the mixture a few times and then process for 2-3 minutes or until a smooth apple-sauce-like texture is reached. You’ll need to stop frequently to scrape the mixture down the sides of your food processor.

  3. Thinly slice your other three peeled and cored apples and add the cubes to the bowl with the apple-date mixture. Toss to coat.

For the Cinnamon-Pecan Streusel


  • 1/4 Cup raw pecans

  • 1/4 Cup raw coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp. virgin coconut oil

  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of salt


  1. Add the pecans, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and cinnamon to a food processor. Pulse until you have a coarse crumble.

To Assemble the Pie:

  1. Remove your crust from the freezer. Pour in the apple mixture and use a spatula to spread it evenly into the crust.

  2. Sprinkle the cinnamon-pecan streusel over the apple layer and return the pie to the freezer for one hour to set.

  3. Remove from freezer, slice, and serve.

Cinnamon Ice "Cream" 

What goes better with Apple Pie than ice cream? Our Cashew Smoothie makes a delicious dairy substitute for crafting recipes like this homemade frozen treat! 



  1. Combine cashew milk with bananas in blender and puree until smooth. For best results place blender container with mixture in freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Remove, blend again, and repeat until firm but creamy.

Optional: Add a pinch of salt to your mixture for more of a savory taste OR add a few dates to amp up the sweetness.
