Thanks for this beautiful and creative apple pie recipe. I never peel apples or pears for recipes, though, if I can help it. I believe it’s done mostly for aesthetic purposes, but too many nutrients are lost. The pie comes out just as delicious with the peel on.
You are so right about the nutrition in the peels.
What can I use instead of whole wheat flour? I’m gluten free.
Rice flour. It has a bit moregreater thickening power, but this may not matter for the topping.
Great vegan pie and simple to make. Enjoyed by all.
I just made some date syrup this week…Based on the instructions above, I’m thinking I can skip the date chopping and soaking, and just use my date syrup, add oats to that, and mix with some plant milk until dough consistency?
Recipes like this make me crazy. 1/4 cup apple cider? Then what do you do with the rest of the bottle of apple cider? Most of us don’t keep juices in our inventory.
I buy a can of frozen apple juice and just reconstitute enough for the recipe and store the rest for a future recipe. And sometimes I just use the same amount of concentrate as required for the recipe.
This comes up fairly regularly with recipes. My solution has been to use the small Rubbermaid containers to freeze 1/4 cup servings (or whatever size works for you) for future food prep. Then the next time I make the recipe, I’m set!
My exact thoughts thought when I bought the small bottle. Guess, I’ll be drinking it…
Any suggestions to replace almond butter? We can’t have any butters or oil
Almond butter powder reconstituted? I will be using my cashew powder and water .
Any suggestions for an alternative to oats? They do not sit well with me. If not, maybe I can just make the filling. It sounds great!
I’ve also seen other rolled grains such as wheat and triticale. Perhaps they might work?
How can I make my own apple pie spice? Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice?
Thank you Leeza for sharing your recipe
