- Prep Time:20m
- Total Time:20m
- 20 medjool dates, pitted and divided
- 1 1/2 c raw walnuts
- 3 Granny Smith apples
- 1 c filtered water, plus more for soaking
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
- Line the bottom of a round 8″ tart pan with parchment paper and set aside. Add the walnuts to a food processor and blend into a fine meal. Then add 8-10 dates and process for 30 seconds. This is your dough.
- Press the dough into the tart pan, cover with plastic, and freeze until you are ready to use it.
- Soak the remaining dates in water for 10-15 minutes. While the dates are soaking, cAdd the remaining 8 dates to a small bowl and cover with water; soak for 10-15 minutes. While the dates are soaking, core and peel the apples before cutting them into 1/4" slices. Next, chop them into small chunks and transfer them to a small bowl, in which you will soak them in water with a little lemon juice. When the dates have finished soaking, discard the water. Add the dates, water, cinnamon, and sea salt to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Drain the water from the apple bowl and then pour this mixture over the apples. Toss to make sure all the apple chunks are evenly coated.
- Remove the pie crust from the freezer and spoon the filling into the crust. Place the pie in the freezer for about 45 minutes before serving. If you have leftovers, the pie will keep frozen in an airtight container in the freezer for up to six weeks, but advise consuming it sooner.
