Pie Crust Ingredients:


Pie Filling Ingredients:

For the crust, process oats and shredded coconut on high in a food processor until it reaches the consistency of coarse flour. Add the almond butter, coconut oil, salt and a ½ cup of raisins. Process on high for approximately 30 seconds. Add the remaining raisins and applesauce. Pulse until the crust begins to come together and pulls away from the bowl. Press into a springform pan. Chill in the refrigerator or freezer while making the filling.
Thinly slice unpeeled apples by hand, on a mandoline or by using the slicing disc of a food processor. Set aside.
For the caramel filling, add all ingredients, minus the apples, to a high speed blender. Process on high speed for approximately 60 seconds, or until fully incorporated and smooth. Remove the crust from the refrigerator or freezer and layer apples on top of the crust. Spread the caramel filling over the apples. Lightly sprinkle with pecans, if desired. Place the pie in the refrigerator for at least one hour to firm.

Store leftovers in the refrigerator, if any remain!
