apple pie

i am slightly addicted to making new CLEAN recipes now...
{probably because that is all i can eat...for the next 26 days (and seriously counting-but that's a whole different post)}  

after making paleo chocolate chip cookies for the fam i decided i needed something sweet too.  i came up with this apple pie type thing.  it is just what the doctor ordered for my sweet tooth.  but i must admit, i do feel like i cheated...even though i don't think i did.

makes 2 servings (maybe 3 or 4 if you stretched it)

  • one apple
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 3-5 dates (i bet figs would be good too)
  • water (eye ball this amount)

  1. preheat oven to 350
  2. put cashews and almonds in blender until crumbly to form the crust
  3. line a small ramekin bowl (or some other bowl that can handle the oven) with the crust and gently press down
  4. place apples on top
  5. add a little bit of water
  6. add a few cut up dates on top and even some cinnamon
  7. i had some left over "crust" so i sprinkled a little on top...it was a bit too much when i actually ate it though (this is why you may have enough crust to make 3 or 4)
  8. bake for about 20-25 minutes
