A GREAT APPLE PIE BREAKFAST
Alex is an apple pie making genius. Her homemade pie is the best I’ve ever tasted. She has perfected the amount of spice, sugar, the tenderness of the apples, and the flaky crust like nobody’s business. So you can only imagine that I was quite skeptical when she told me to try her raw apple pie recipe.
Raw apple pie? My first thought, Sacré bleu! Then I made it, and I was like, ooh la la!!!
Why am I using French phrases to describe the all-American apple pie? I’m not sure, just go with it. 🙂
Like I said, I made Alex’s raw apple pie, and dang it was good! The apples were finely chopped and marinated in fresh lemon juice and cinnamon for a sweet and tangy flavor.
The chopped up date is sprinkled in for a deeper sweetness and a chewy texture. To finish this delicious dish, the chopped walnuts add a fabulous crunch.
You can make this for breakfast, for a snack, or, of course, for dessert, without the guilt of actually eating a piece of pie.
There isn’t a sliver of processed sugar, shortening, or flour in this raw pie recipe, because let’s be honest, the crust and added sugar in the apples is what makes a traditional apple pie so high in calories.
HOW TO MAKE AN EASY NO BAKE VEGAN APPLE PIE
Okay, calling this an actual pie is stretching it, I know. So for the sake of argument, let's call this a deconstructed raw apple pie.
You can make this vegan apple pie in three easy steps.
Peel, (optional), core (not optional), and chop the apple. Put it in a bowl and squeeze the lemon juice on it and toss.
Take the pit out of the date (use more if you like really sweet food) and chop it.
Add the date, walnuts, and cinnamon to the apple and toss to combine and let it sit for 30 minutes so the flavors can marry.
That's it! Now go eat.

Gwendolyn Lewis says
This was delicious! A little too much lemon, but otherwise, this hit the sweet spot during my raw detox!
Linda Meyer says
Hey Gwendolyn! So glad you liked the recipe. I can definitely go a little lemon crazy so great note!
Carol Evans says
When do I add the date? It's not mentioned in the recipe.
Linda Meyer says
Hi Carol! Such a great question, considering I didn't state when to do so. LOL! My apologies.
Add the date when you add the walnuts and fold them in. I'm off to fix that recipe card now. 🙂
