One of the perks of being a food blogger is that I get the opportunity to receive review copies of new cookbooks. There are a lot of them; however, only a very select few earn spots on my small kitchen shelf. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing recipes from the new books that really are something special.

The first cookbook is from my teacher and mentor, Meghan Telpner. You may know her from her first book, UnDiet, or her popular Academy of Culinary Nutrition (where I received my certification!). I’ve had the privilege of knowing Meghan for the last year and a half and let me tell you—she is the real deal and every bit as knowledgeable and bubbly as you’d imagine. Girl’s also got integrity in spades. To give you an example: shortly after I launched my SEO for Food Bloggers eBook, I submitted it for sale on her ACN website. Meghan emailed to tell me she loved it so much she wanted to buy her own copy through Pickles & Honey to use for her site re-design, despite already having a review copy. That’s the type of person she is.

It was Meghan’s UnDiet lifestyle book that prompted me to become a Certified Culinary Nutritionist, and this latest UnDiet Cookbook is the natural successor to UnDiet. What I love about the recipes is that not only are they wholesome and delicious, but they’re also extremely simple. If you’ve ever thought, “I want to eat better/vegan/gluten-free/etc, but I don’t have the time”, this is the cookbook for you. The recipes are the opposite of fussy and whether you’re soy-free or grain-free, there’s something for everyone.

Naturally, I gravitated towards dessert! This key lime pie is right up my alley: 10 ingredients, no-bake, and sweetened with dates and pure maple syrup. I’m a sucker for tart, citrusy desserts and this one hits the spot. I hope you’ll give it a try!

P.S. If you’re interested in the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, I wrote a review here. You can also contact me with specific questions. I’m happy to share my experience and really feel like it was a game-changer for me.

P.P.S. My mom, who always tells me P&H recipes have “too many special ingredients”—even though we shop at the EXACT SAME grocery stores in Boston!—has been cooking from The UnDiet Cookbook. So, if that’s not a testament to it being approachable, I don’t know what is. And for the record, Mom—my recipes are not complicated!

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 cup dried dates
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup whole pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the filling:

  • 2 cups cashews
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp matcha powder (optional for color only)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

For the garnish:

  • 6 key limes, sliced (optional)

Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan Servings: 8-10

Instructions

  • Put all the crust ingredients into a food processor, and process until the ingredients can just stick together. You shouldn’t have a gooey mess. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Press the crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9­inch glass pie dish.
  • Place all the filling ingredients in your high-speed blender or food processor and blend until the filling is completely smooth and creamy.
  • Pour the filling evenly over the pie crust, smooth with a spatula. Place the pie in the freezer covered to set for at least 3 hours, or overnight if possible.
  • Let the pie sit at room temperature for 10 minutes and garnish with key limes before serving.

  1. I have never heard of the UnDiet cookbook! But anything that gets people to stop counting calories and instead just enjoying wholesome, healthy foods is good in my books. This raw key lime pie looks delicious – the perfect combination of creamy and zesty!

    1. Amanda says

      I think you’re going to love The UnDiet Cookbook (and anything from Meghan Telpner, really). She is infectiously positive and has such a great outlook on food and life. Definitely no calorie counting!

  2. I loved the cookbook (it is one of the best perks 😉 ) She is such a awesome woman all around!

    1. Amanda says

      Totally agree, Rebecca. Meghan’s a rock star!

  3. Chelsey says

    I’ve never tried Key Lime Pie in my life but now I want to!

  4. Lori says

    Do you need to soak the cashews first?

    1. Hi Lori! Meghan’s recipe doesn’t call for soaking the cashews first. Enjoy the pie! (it’s delicious!)

  5. SM says

    Your recipe turned our marvelously even after halving the recipe. This is my first time trying a raw pie.

  6. Mia says

    Hi! Looks delicious, just wondering do you need to soak the cashews?

    1. Hi Mia! You don’t need to soak the cashews. That said, if you’re not using a high-speed blender, I would probably soak them overnight to make blending easier.

  7. Az says

    These are amazing.I soaked my cashews for just an hour in lukewarm water and used my nutribullet. took only about a minute of blending and the filling was smooth as (vegan) cream. Huge hit. People couldn’t believe these were vegan AND raw.

  8. Sarah says

    My husband’s absolute favorite pie in the world is key lime pie and his mom makes a killer one. I have been in search of a vegan and raw alternative that hits as close to hers as possible. This pie is AMAZING! So creamy, tart, and so delicious. This is definitely going to end up being a staple in our home. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Amanda says

      I’m so happy you and your husband enjoyed the pie, Sarah! Isn’t it so wonderful when there’s a more wholesome version that’s still really satisfying?! I love it when that happens. 🙂

  9. I haven’t made desserts in decades, but now that the pandemic’s set in, I’ve started up again, and your 10-ingredient key lime pie is the best! A real fave at our house and with friends. Today, I tried throwing in a small piece of the lime rind into the crust. We’ll see how that goes. Anyway, thank you. I appreciate the simplicity.
