It’s THAT time of the year, with Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year celebration, family gatherings and all the holiday baking! It’s happening!

After my sugar-free and dairy-free pumpkin pie is now time to share an equally delicious recipe for a fit apple pie which is vegan and super easy.

The crust is made using the same flour mix of my pumpkin pie recipe, while the filling is simple: apples, spices, lemon juice, pecans and maple syrup.

Let’s get this holiday baking started, shall we?

Ingredients (makes a 20 cm pie):

for the crust

  • 25g GF oat flour
  • 45 g Kamut flour
  • 30 g almond flour
  • 45 g rice flour
  • 1 g xantan gum
  • 30 g almond butter (all natural)
  • 30 g melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • almond milk (as needed)

for the filling

  • 2 red apples
  • 10 pecans, shelled
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 20 g maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Start off by chopping up the apple (keep the skin if you like) and mix them with the remaining ingredients

In a bowl gather the ingredients for the crust and mix together until you get a smooth and soft dough.

Divide the dough in 2 equal parts. Roll out one into a circle and lay it on a 2 cm baking dish

Drop in the filling

Then roll out the second half and use it to cover your pie, sealing well the edges together

Using a sharp knife make some cuts on the top of the crust, brush it with milk and sprinkle with coconut sugar (optional).

Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 for about 25-30 min

Let the pie cool down completely, then serve it up or store it at room temperature for up to 3 days.

This is serve it up with some whipped cream of vanilla soy ice cream if you fancy

Seriously SO YUMMY!
