Apple pie recipe - vegan and sugar free :o)

Share this page:

My daughter and I made an apple pie about a week ago. She did a marvelous job of assisting me, including placing the dough on top of the pie. As you can see from the picture, she even made a heart:

I found the recipe for the vegan pie crust at Vegfamily.com. I, of course, modified it a bit. :o)
For the crust portion of the recipe you will need:
  • 3 cups unbleached flour (I often mix in about 1/3 wheat flour)
  • a pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • water, as needed
  1. Pour your flour into a pan.
  2. Add the salt.
  3. Spoon in the solid coconut oil. (Put it in the fridge for a bit to get it solid if it is not.)
  4. Use your hands to work the coconut oil into the flour. You will have a damp crumbly flour with little to no lumps once it is sufficiently mixed.
  5. Using a spoon, stir mixture while you slowly add flour as needed to form a stiff but pliable dough.
  6. Separate dough into 2 portions. One for top and one for bottom.
  7. Stretch dough into pie tin. If you are not using a non stick pan, grease with a bit of coconut oil.
  8. Roll out the remaining dough flat and cut it into strips for the top. Set aside.
Next we will prepare the pie filling portion. You will need:
  • Four apples, chopped and peeled
  • About 3/4 cup of water
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of ginger, optional
  • About cup of agave nectar or date sugar
  • 1 tablespoon agar agar or arrowroot
To prepare:
In a saucepan on medium heat, mix the water, spices, and sweetener. 
Add the apples. Cook them in the mixture for a few minutes if desired.
Then, spoon into pie crust. Here is a pic of ours at this point:

Add the top crust portion.
Bake at about 325 until crust is a golden color.

Until next time... God bless! :o)
God bless!
