Delicious Vegan Fruit Pie (video)

This has to be the healthiest recipe you’ll find when in need of a delicious fruit pie faaast… A raw crust made from nuts and dates holds a fruit compote that will salvage these ripe (possibly sad-looking) fruits you may have lying around. But first, follow me for a brief visit at my favorite market…

Happy cooking!

Christopher, A "Vegan pie" means no animal products are used to make the pie fiilling or the crust, such as butter or eggs .

To Christopher,
Pies are commonly made with dairy products !
That is why this pie is called a VEGAN PIE !

YEs this pie looks great but the crust is ridiculously expensive.
Dates are great as are nuts, but to help save funds during the holidays pie crusts can be made with plain old affordable canola oil---just add a bit more flour and water or see Baking at High Altitude for the recipe----yes it works at sea level too.
