There is one pie that reigns supreme over all others. A pie with such pie-ness that makes the neighbour tarts and tartlets bow in awe and respect. The Apple Pie.
But despite all its glory, this beautiful dessert is not for everyone, sadly. Vegans can't have it, people with dairy intolerance can't even get close to it, and neither can folks on a diet. Let's change that! Let's make a delicious apple pie that is dairy-free, egg-free, sugar-free, and wholesomely vegan.
Are you intolerant to gluten? No worries, we've got you. Check out how to make a gluten-free tart base using nut flours and oats here.
Being able to enjoy apple pie without worrying about health and diet doesn't have to be a day-dream. It's actually very easy to achieve! You can do it by preparing a:
Wholesome plant-based crust. We used wholemeal flour, maple syrup instead of white sugars, and vegetable oil instead of butter.
Sugar-free filling. By replacing white sugars with a homemade date paste, you get a creamier filling that is both tasty and good for your blood sugar levels.
Below, we will show you how to do all these things, in a few simple steps.
Once done, you'll have a fragrant pie with three times fewer fats, and half the sugars than the classic one, but 100% of the crunchy crust and luscious apple filling that you know and love.
