Ingredients

Filling

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 6 apples, peeled, center removed, sliced
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tbsp corn starch

Pastry

  • 55 g coconut oil, solid
  • 150 g almond flour
  • 150 g whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • ½ cup water

Instructions

Filling

  • Heat up 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a pan. Add coconut sugar and cook for about a minute until the sugar has melted (make sure it doesn't burn). Add milk, apples, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Give it a gentle mix.
  • Let it simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until the apples slightly soften -it doesn't matter if they're not fully cooked-. Add the cornstarch and let it cook for about a minute, just until it starts thickening. Let it cool.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C.

Pastry

  • Combine coconut oil with both flours and coconut sugar. Mix with a dough cutter until a sandy consistency is obtained.
  • Add about ½ cup of water, until it forms a firm dough - add the water one tablespoon at a time and stop once the dough feels and looks homogeneous.
  • Divide the dough into two parts and spread one of these on a cake pan (previously greased & floured). Use your fingers to carefully press it on the bottom and up and sides of the pan (I suggest using a 9” pan).
  • Place the rest of the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll it out with a rolling pin. Cut the dough into several strips.

Assembling

  • Pour the apple mix into the previous pan. NOTE: the apple filling must be completely cold because if it is warm it might melt the coconut oil from the pie crust and make the process difficult.
  • Take the previous dough strips and place them on top of the pie forming a grid of interlaced squares (as shown in the picture). If a little dough is left, make a strip long enough to cover the edge of the pie and press the edge with a fork to adhere it to the grid strips.
  • Optionally, brush some agave or maple syrup on the strips and sprinkle some coconut/brown sugar to make the pie look golden and shiny.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the pie looks nice and golden.
