So I am not a huge fan of cakes, but I will say I can eat a pie like its going out of style, especially strawberry pie! So what better way to make it so its guilt free and healthy?!
I found this recipe from RAWvolution book by Matt Amsden… This book is incredible I’m telling you!
What I love about this recipe, is that the sugar in it is natural, so even for diabetics this recipe is appropriate! The agave nectar is used in place of sugar which is low on the gylcemic index to maintain your insulin levels without having them spike high and low as many foods with sugar will!
For the Crust:
- 2 cups raw almonds, finely ground in a food processor
- 1/3 cup agave nectar
For the Filling:
- 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
To make the crust:
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground almonds and agave nectar, mixing well. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom and sides of a 5 inch pie tin.
To make the filling:
In a food processor, slice the strawberries with the slicing disk. Transfer the sliced strawberries to a mixing bowl, add the agave nectar and mix well.
Spoon the mixture into the pie crust and serve.
