Caramel Crumble Raw Apple Pie Recipe

Caramel Crumble Raw Apple Pie

I asked (tweeted) what I should do with my 10kg of freshly picked apples and was told I had to make a raw apple pie. So I created one to share with you. But it’s not just any apple pie – I made you a Caramel Crumble Raw Apple Pie that’s to die live for!

It is starting to feel like autumn here in Australia. So naturally, this New Yorker thinks everything should taste like apples or pumpkins! As soon as the leaves start to change color back home, every eatery and pre-made food company comes out with fall-flavored foods. Think pumpkin or apple flavored EVERYTHING. The flavored coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts alone is important enough to take over my Facebook news feed.

This raw apple pie combines all the lovely seasonings of autumn – apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel – to make a ridiculously delicious dessert that not only pleases the omnivores but is healthy too! I would know, I ate it for breakfast this morning.

This may seem like a complicated recipe, but I promise it is easy to make and TOTALLY worth it! You don’t even have to clean the food processor between steps.

1/8 cup raw almonds

Caramel Sauce
