This Apple Pie uses very few ingredients, it is easy to make and tastes wonderful!
1 1/2 cups sunflower seeds
3/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon carob powder
5-6 medium sized apples peeled and cored (I use green apples)
3/4 cup raw, unfiltered honey (preferably with pollen)
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
juice from 1/2 meyer lemon
dash of cloves (optional)
1 seasonal fruit (kiwi, banana or other)
Make the crust by placing the sunflower seeds, raisins and carob powder in a food
processor and process with the "S" blade until finely ground and mixture sticks
Line a 9" pie pan with this mixture and form the crust.
Take the apples, and pulse chop with the "S" blade into small pieces. (Be
sure not to overdo it and make apple sauce!)
In a bowl, mix the chopped apples, cinnamon, lemon juice and honey and dash of cloves
Scoop the mixture into the pie crust. Save the "juice" that remains and
drizzle over pie when served. Level out with a spatula.
Sprinkle on Coconut flakes on top of the mixture.
Cut seasonal fruit into thin slices and place on top of the coconut flakes in the
center of the pie!
