Shannon brought this delicious pie to the party on the last day of class and it is AMAZING! I also love that it is all real natural ingredients, no added sugar, just sweetened with natures goodness and is gluten/grain free.
She found that recipe at Art of Balanced Living. I quickly looked it over and it looks like there is some good info/yummy recipes on her blog. She got it from Ani Phyos who is the author of Ani's Raw Food Kitchen: Easy, Delectable Living Foods Recipes. Ani is so gorgeous it is amazing how real food can really give you a healthy glow.
Here's the recipe for the pie:
2 cup almonds
2 cups pitted dates
1 teaspoon sea-salt
1/2 cup pitted dates
1 orange pitted and seeded
1/4 cup water
5 to 6 apples peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1. Peel apples (or don't I forgot to, but it is better with them peeled)
2. Cut or put apples through food processor to slice. Put in a large bowl with cinnamon and raisins.
3. Next, put the nuts through the food processor to make and almond flour. Sprinkle a thin layer of the almond flour in the bottom of the pie pan so it does not stick. Set aside the almonds and then put the dates in the food processor until it forms a big gooie ball.
4. Combine the dates and almonds together with your hands to form a ball and press into the pie pan to make the crust.
5. In a blender, blend the peeled orange, dates, and water for the syrup and mix with the bowl of apples, cinnamon, and raisins. Pile it on top of the crust.

I like warm apple pie, so I baked mine at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and I liked it even better.
Shannon made mini pie's in a muffin pan, which is a great idea to make them portable, portion control, and fun for kids.
