E2 Fruit Pie with Date-Nut Crust

Submitted by: SUNNYH99

Introduction

My adaptation of this raw, gluten- free, wheat-free, soy-free, and vegan dessert from the Engine 2 Diet book, thanks to author Rip Esselstyn, adapted by using raw cashews, and ground almonds instead of whole ((since I had some). I found the recipe asking for 4 ounces of strawberries which I had thought was equal to 1/2 cup, but I weighed them and 4 ounces roughly equals 1 cup.

  • This pie has "eye-appeal," and is very delicious, too. Getting it out of the pan is a bit of a challenge. If I am able to perfect that, I will be taking it to potlucks. Thank you for sharing! - 2/27/12

  • Very good - all the different fruit masked the fact of no sugar in the pie - the crust was pretty good too - except kinda hard to get out of the pan in nice pieces :) - 7/18/11
