RAW Caramel Apple Pie with an Oatmeal Cinnamon Topping

Who doesn’t love Apple Pie. Fall is almost around the corner and I am craving apple pie, but not the calories. I bought a ton of apples a few days ago at my local Sprouts. My intention was to juice these apples and yes I will sometime later this week, but I was craving something a little more decadent.

So, here is my version on a RAW Caramel Apple Pie.

This pie is loaded with vegan based protein, courtesy of Georgia Grinders Nut Butters. I used there delicious NaturAlmond  Almond Flour Meal to make the crust. I also added a little of there NaturAlmond Almond butter inside my Raw Caramel sauce. 

This pie is always an awesome “go to” when you are detoxing and want something sweet and healing for the body.  If I  have any leftover, I put a whole slice in my Ninja with a little almond milk and it makes an incredible apple pie smoothie. Hope you enjoy this recipe and Remember to always Set the Table with Love.

Oatmeal Almond and Raisin Crust

1 cups  Gluten Free Quick Oatmeal

1 cup NaturAlmond Almond Flour meal 

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 cups raisins

1 teaspoon of sea salt

Caramel Sauce

1 cup raisins

2 tbsp NaturAlmond Butter

1 tsp melted coconut oil

1 tsp distilled water

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

1 vanilla bean

generous pinch of salt

2 cups of water to soak the raisins

Filling

5 fuji apples diced

2 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp clove

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tbsp lemon juice

a little sea salt to taste

To make the crust

Pulse the oats, almond meal and sea salt in a food processor until it forms a course flour. Slowly add the raisins into the processor in small batches to mix with the oat flour. This will bind your crust. If it is too dry, you can add a little water. You do not want a sticky dough. Press the dough into the bottom of a floured (Use a little of the almond meal to flour the tart pan) tart pan or pie pan. Shaping the dough to the tart or pie pan. Set aside in the fridge, to firm up about 30 minutes.

To make the caramel sauce

First soak the raisin for at least 2 hours. Hang on to the soaking water as you will need this later, just in case you want to make a sauce that is more pourable. You will need the water to achieve this.

Drain the water from the raisins.  Add all the ingredients except for the soaking water to a blender. Blitz for about 2 minutes until everything is creamy and smooth. Add the water a little at a time to get the desired consistency.

To make the apple filling 

Placed the cut apples into a large bowl. Toss with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, salt and the caramel. Leave a little caramel  to pour over the top of the apple pie, if desired.  Remove the crust from the fridge and fill it with the apple filling, top with the remaining caramel sauce and oatmeal and cinnamon topping.
