The easiest ever vegan, sugar free, gluten free apple pie. Wanna know how to make it?
You need a few apples. 4-6 of them. If I would have had green apples of the granny smith type at home, I would have used them as their tartiness adds more character to the pie. Wash them, peel them, cut them into thin but not too thin slices.
Coat a pan in coconut oil.
In a small pan, warm up 1,5 dl coconut oil on low heat. Add 1,5 dl of any sweetener of your choice, together with 1 tsp of cinnamon and a small pinch of salt. Mix well.
For better health benefits and to get away from the processed refined sugars, I like using either raw honey, coconut sugar, or palm sugar. Raw honey always wins though, considering that it not only contains sweet flavour, but also it's a real super food in itself. Honey is packed with important amino acids and antioxidants that our bodies do so good with.
Turn the heat off and transfer the soft liquid mixture into a larger mixing bowl where the apple slices await, and toss them around for a bit so they get all soaked and juicy. Lift the apple slices out of the bowl, careful not to bring with you all the juice. Leave this at the bottom of the bowl for later. The idea here is only to lightly coat and flavour the apples with the oil and cinnamon mixture.
When the apples are put into the coconut oil coated pan, pour 2 dl oats and 1 dl grated coconut into the bowl together with 3/4 tsp baking powder and 2 tsp vanilla sugar or 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix well with your hands, and then cover the apples with this sticky mixture. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top of the cake if you like.
Bake in the oven at 200 degrees for around 30 min. Serve with Oatly's vanilla sauce if you're lazy. Otherwise make your own home made vanilla sauce. Which obviously tops all vanilla sauce charts that ever existed. But it's quite a task when all you want is to eat apple cake: now.
1 dl equals approx 0,5 cups. 200 C is the same as 392 F.
