I am a complete SUCKER for desserts! Right now I'm dehydrating banana leather (for crepes), Rawkinlocs' cinnamon-pecan buns and there is RP's brownie recipe in the freezer!
I guess I like to plan ahead ;) and have desserts on hand so I won't get tempted with SAD sweets..but today I almost bought a piece of pie, pecan pie! My mum had to talk me out of it haha! That brings me to my question; do any of you good people out there have a DELICIOUS pecan pie recipe - raw style, of course, that you could share with me and anyone else who has these cravings?!!

I too love my desserts. Have you tried the Kent Mango Pie from Green chefs? It is delicious!

RAWvolution has a simple recipe for pecan pie. I don't have the book with me right now, and I've haven't made it yet ... my pecans get *eaten* before I can make anything with them.
What I want to make *next* is a chocolate mousse pie with a pecan crust. I just need to get more pecans, avocados, and cacao powder. :D

Alissa's date & nut torte might work. You could add pecans and garnish pecans on top and pour some type of raw liquid sugar and set it like a pecan pie.
It is only three ingredients without making the icing.
2 cups of walnuts 2 cups of organic earthbound farm raisins
process in a food processor until fudgy,this will take a few
minutes, pour onto a plate, shape into a round circle pan.

I haven't tried this, but it's Joel Rodhner from Raw Life Line's recipe. It's Pecan Fruit pie...with a fruit crust. You can go to his website and it will email you just about all his recipes. It doesn't tell you what to do with the 1 1/2 cups of unsoaked pecan, but maybe they go on top?
Pecan Fruit Pie
1 papaya (or mango, or a print of strawberries, sliced)
1 cup pecans (soaked in water for 1 hour)
1 1/2 cups pecan (donât soak)
6 oz. Filtered water
5-10 dates, soaked
1/2 vanilla bean, cut into tiny pieces
1 heaping tbsp. Raw honey (or to taste)
Soak one cup of pecans in filtered water. Set aside.
In a 9-inch glass pie pan, arrange one layer of sliced bananas 2 1/2 bananas should do it). Lay the banana slices in a spiral pattern with one slice slightly overlapping the other until you have covered the entire pie pan. Also put a layer going up the sides of the pie pan. Next, cut the papaya into 1/4 inch thin slices and layer of slightly overlapping banana slices. Now with your hands compress the fruit down evenly. Set aside.
In a blender, put 1 cup of soaked (drained) pecans, dates, 6 oz. Filtered water and tiny pieces of vanilla bean and blend to a fine cream. Taste the cream, and if it is not sweet enough for your taste, add more dates.
Pour the cream over the fruit in the pie pan. Put the pie pan into the dehydrator and dehydrate at 95 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 hours.
Chill the pie at least on hour before serving. Serves 6-8. Keeps for a few days in the refrigerator

We've made the Rhio's Celestial Pecan Pie, which is basically the same as mongomango's recipe, and it is to LIVE for! At least for us, it really is divine! It's so good that we usually eat it with our eyes close... LOL

Oh wow! So he used Rhio's recipe! He used to send out raw food by UPS, but has stopped doing that now. Well at least I know what the other pecans are for now, lol! I wonder if I can substitute more fruit for them... I have actually been thinking about making this because of the fruit crust...i don't do well on heavy nuts anymore...and I'm sooo glad to know that it's good. Thanks Carmella!

I know what you mean about the heavy nut crusts... This is one of the reasons why this is such an amazing pie! You can totally sub the fruits with whatever you have on hand. We've made it once with mango and papaya, I mean, along with the nanas and once with mango, papaya and persimmons! Oh wow! We thought we'd died and gone to heaven! ;-) There's only one time when it wasn't outstandingly good and that's because we only used papaya and it wasn't quite ripe.
Enjoy and let me know what fruits you used and how it turned out!
