Raw Peach Pie

Raw Peach Pie

I mentioned in my gluten-free peach cobbler post the other week that I prefer to eat my peaches fresh and uncooked.  Well, I finally found some good peaches that I’ve been enjoying, but I wanted to do something a little different with them.

I saw a recipe in a cookbook that used a baked crust (it wasn’t a typical pastry crust) but the peach filling was raw.  I thought, “why not go completely raw?”  And so, this raw peach pie was born.

Besides being raw, it also happens to be gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free.

I won’t lie to you.  It’s not my favorite pie, but it is good, and it is filling.  It requires a bit a chewing, but I love the fresh peaches in it.  Only my youngest son, my oldest (gluten free) son, and I were home when I made this pie.  My youngest said it was good, but commented that he prefers cooked peaches in a pie.  My oldest, however, agreed with me.  He has never been fond of cooked fruit and prefers it raw.

I’ll leave this to you to decide for yourself.

Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups almonds
  • ½ cup dates (about 7)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut
  • 2 Tablespoons water (depending on how dry the dates are)
  • 4 cups thinly sliced fresh peaches
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine the almonds, dates, and coconut. Process until nuts are in small pieces. Add water as needed to help it stick together. You can check the mixture by pressing a little into a small ball and see if it holds together.
  2. Press into the bottom of a 10 inch pie plate. If using a small dish, leave out a little of the mixture or your crust will be too thick
  3. In a bowl, combine the peaches, honey, and cinnamon.
  4. Spoon the peaches into the pie crust.
  5. Serve immediately.

  1. Your pie looks beautiful, Linda! Yum! I bet it would be less chewy if you cut the peach pieces a bit smaller, unless the chewiness factor comes from the crust. And I love the crust. I’m very fond of raw crusts with nuts and the dates and coconut are great additions. :-) I always cheat and just use almond flour … adding it to my mixture at the end. ;-)

    • Thanks, Shirley. The chewiness was mostly from the crust, though the peaches did take more chewing than if they were cooked. I like the idea of using almond flour/meal. That would make it easier to eat. Thanks for the idea!

  2. This recipe is right up my alley. Now to find some good peaches so I can make it.

  3. Would never have thought to do this on my own. Looks fabulous! Thanks, Linda! And thanks to Shirley for the flour idea, too!

  4. I love this idea of fresh peaches in a crunchy sort of crust. The dates and coconuts sound even better.

  5. I’ve never had a raw fruit pie but this sounds delicious! I really like the crust. Pinning this in pinterest to pass along.

  6. That crust sounds really tasty, and I LOVE peaches…raw, cooked, pureed. Yum!
