  • Raw Apple Pie with Walnuts

    This raw apple pie is definently one of my favourite desserts (yes I know I have a lot of favourites, but that is OK). I learned how to make it from my rawfood teacher who is an expert on desserts! I modified the recepie a little but it still has her touch too. We usually make this pie when we want to cozy up in front of the tv and watch a movie. The pie isn't big but it definitely serves 8 persons. I always make the pie with Granny Smith apples, because of their slight tartness. The cake has a lot of dates, and the apples prevent it from getting too sweet. And with the Whole, Wonderful Walnuts…what can I say it just tastes amazing! You really have to try it to understand what I'm talking about. And it's a super easy recepie.

    Raw Apple Pie with Walnuts

    8 portions

    Ingredients

    Directions

    Process the first three ingredients in a food processor for about 10 minutes. Press into a pie dish. If you want to, you can put the crust in a dehydrator for about 10 hours (I always do) but you can go directly to step 2. Process the dates, zest and cinnamon in a food processor. Then combine all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Blend it well. Put everything in the pie crust and press it down a little bit. Slice the apple thinly with a knife or a mandolin slicer and decorate the pie with the apples and whole walnuts. Put the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. I always serve mine with a delicious raw vanilla sauce.

    Enjoy!

  • Wonderfully Wholesome Walnut Salad

    You know those days when you don't have anything planned for dinner but you've still got to eat? That's my day - every day! So today I was craving walnuts and made an amazingly good salad with This is Nuts' Whole, Wonderful Walnuts. They are really crunchy and taste fantastic. I had some walnuts on hand that I had soaked for 8 hours and then dried for 24 hours at 110 degrees, because I was about to make a raw apple pie. Soaking and drying the walnuts in the oven makes them easier to process when you're baking, but is not really necessary for this recipe. Either way, the salad, as the rest of my recepies was so, so good! And yes, I know that I´m bragging, but you know what – that's OK. In Sweden, we don't brag enough when we're good at something!

    Wonderfully Wholesome Walnut Salad
