Banana-Pecan Pie (Raw Foods)

This pie was inspired by Wendys Kitchen's delicious Strawberry Pie which is made of nothing but raw fruit and nuts. (Well, and a little splash of vanilla.) Cooking time is chilling time. This pie tastes very good, but it does turn brown fairly quickly. I will try 2 Tblsp lemon juice next time.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Pie shell: Grind the pecans, dates, and vanilla in a food processor until finely ground. Press mixture evenly into a pie plate.
  2. Binder: Blend dates, bananas, and lemon juice in the food processor until smooth.
  3. Fruit Filling: Cut bananas into 1/4 inch circles, fold into the binder, and fill the pie shell.
  4. Topping: Sprinkle about 1 Tablespoon of chopped pecans on top, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a couple hours.

i LOVED this pie! the crust is absolutely amazing - and so simple! much quicker than a baked pie. it's treats like this that make the raw diet do-able. my roommates (who are NOT raw food-ists) had mixed reviews, however. One liked it, and two thought it was strange. I, however, have been waiting to get home to have another slice all afternoon! I highly recommend it for raw food eaters!

GREAT PIE, REALLY GREAT, & easy to make, too! I did take the suggestion & uped the amount of lemon juice, but can't say for sure how well it worked, 'cause the pie didn't last very long around here! I used Medjool dates (my favorite) & was sorely tempted to toast the pecans, but didn't! Thanks for a nice recipe keeper!
