Sweetened only with dates, this simple variation on apple pie offers great nutrition alongside the natural sugar. Enjoy a small portion as a treat! For a little creamy goodness, top with a tablespoon or two of vanilla Greek yogurt.


  • 30 dates, pitted (divided)
  • 1 c. warm water (divided)
  • 1 1/2 c. walnuts
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 4 apples, thinly sliced

  2. Cover 18 dates with half of the warm water and set aside.
  3. Place walnuts in food processor and grind to a fine meal. Add the remaining pitted dates and water and process until dates are blended with the walnuts to form a coarse, sticky meal. Press mixture into tart pan.
  4. Place soaking dates and their liquid in blender along with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth.
