Easy as No-Bake Strawberry Apple Pie

I’ve been really disciplined about my carbs this week, so tonight was a well deserved treat.  And as the title says, this recipe is extremely easy – free of grains and refined sugars but bursting with flavor.

No-Bake Strawberry Apple Pie

Ingredients

Crust:

2 1/2 cups almonds

20 dates

2 tablespoons butter, melted

pinch of salt

Pie Filling:

4 gala apples, cored and thinly sliced

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions:

In a large saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat.  Add sliced apples, cooking for about 3 minutes or until apples are slightly softened.  Add strawberries and cook for about 5 minutes, adding vanilla for the last minute, stirring until flavors are combined and fruit is softened.  Turn off heat to allow pie filling to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine all crust ingredients and process for 60 seconds or until mixture begins to clump together.  Press into a 9-in pie dish.  Pour filling into crust.  Allow to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, and then in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes, before serving…

IF you can wait that long!  🙂
