Raw Apple Pie
Gluten Free; Raw; Soy Free; Vegan
These little babies are worth the time of preparation for a WOW factor. Depending on how many you make (I made 19 and it took 5 hours) will depend on how long it takes you. With apples as sweet as they are, there is little sweetener needed. For the topping use a (clean) coffee grinder to grind almonds and groats.
8 organic Fuji apples
¾ cup organic brown rice syrup
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ground all cloves
2 lemons; juiced and divided
1/3 cup groats, ground
2 Tablespoons almonds, ground
1 teaspoon coconut sugar
1. Combine the juice of 1 ½ lemons with water in a large bowl. Set aside.
2. Using an apple corer core the apple (about half way-careful not to damage the bottom of the apple). Slice off the top of the apple and using a melon baller, scoop out the inside of the apple (again, be careful not to damage the apple shell). Soak the apple shells in the lemon water to keep from turning brown.
3. Coarsely chop apple inside. In a large bowl, combine the coarsely chopped apple with brown rice syrup and spices and the remaining lemon juice. Remove an apple shell from lemon water and fill with apple filling; repeat until all apple shells are filled.
4. Combine ground groats, ground almonds and coconut sugar. Top apples with ground almond mixture. Serve with your favorite non-dairy ice cream!
