Hawaiian Apple Pie (no-bake)
So delicious, plus simple to make, you may never want to turn on the oven to bake another apple pie again. Make sure to wait the 24 hours after preparing the pie and before serving so that the cinnamon spice has time to mellow. Since it’s basically all fruit and nuts, a slice of this pie can even make a healthy addition to your breakfast lineup.
for the crust:
3/4 cup Almonds
1/4 cup Macadamia nuts
1 tablespoon Coconut, dried + shredded
6 medium Dates, Medjool, pitted
1/16 teaspoon Sea salt
for the filling:
1/3 cup Orange juice, fresh squeezed
1/8 cup Pineapple juice
4 medium Dates, Medjool, pitted
1/3 cup Raisins
5 medium Apples, Granny Smith
1 tablespoon Cinnamon, ground
Soak all 10 dates in 1/4 cup water for 30 minutes. Soak raisins in 1/4 cup water for 15 minutes. Reserve both waters.
Chop almonds in food processor until smaller bits. Remove a tablespoon of the almond “flour” for later use. Add macadamia nuts to processor and chop until macadamia is coarse bits. Add 6 dates, 1 tablespoon of coconut and salt and process until crust is formed. If too dry and crumbly, add up to 1 tsp of date soak water to slightly moisten.
In an 8″ pie plate sprinkle the tablespoon of reserved almond powder to “flour” plate bottom. Put nut/date mixture on top of “flour” and push into bottom and sides of plate to form pie crust. Refrigerate.
In a blender put in orange and pineapple juices, reserved date and raisin soak waters and remaining 4 dates and blend until smooth. Pour syrup into a large mixing bowl.
Peel, core, and thinly slice apples. Place apple slices in mixing bowl with fruit syrup. Continually toss to make sure slices are covered in fruit syrup so that they won’t brown. Add raisins and cinnamon to bowl and toss everything to mix evenly.
Fill pie crust with apple filling. Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 hours before serving.
Optional garnish: top each slice with a small dollop of whipped cream and a wedge of pineapple
