Apples are overrated. Forget fruit and piece together a pie packed with nuts in a Southern-style dessert favorite gone raw. From the crumbly, coconut-tinged crust to the chewy, nut-studded filling, this pecan pie is prepped without heat—or the sugar, butter and other unhealthy add-ins that leave you limited to a single slice of the traditional kind. Dig in, y’all!

Recipe: Raw Pecan Pie



2 cups walnuts
3 cups of pitted dates
1 cup shredded coconut

⅔ cup water
1 cup pecans, soaked for 15 minutes
1 cup raisins
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. nutmeg
⅓ cup raw coconut nectar
1 tsp. sea salt


  1. Add the dates, coconut flakes and walnuts to the food processor and pulse until mixed.
  2. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a pie tray.
  3. Blend all filling ingredients together until smooth. Pour into crust and top with pecans.
  4. Place in freezer overnight to set. Remove from freezer 10 minutes or so before serving to let it thaw.
