How to Make a Sugar Free Apple Pie

How to Make a Sugar Free Apple Pie

I was on a sugar free cleanse a few months back and I had an intense craving for apple pie. As I wasn’t allowed any type of sugar, I had to figure out how to make a sugar free apple pie. Turns out, it is incredibly easy! This recipe only calls on 3 ingredients for the apple filling and only 4 ingredients for the crust. 🙂 You can also check out my post on the best Gluten Free Dairy Free Pie Crust Recipes (8 Options) for more (vegan/grain-free) crust options.

Apple Pie Filling
  1. *4 apples sliced
  2. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  3. 2 tsp coconut flour
  4. maple syrup or stevia to taste, optional
Crust
  1. 2 cup sorghum flour (I think rice flour would also work though I haven't tried it yet)
  2. 2/3 of a cup vegan shortening (or butter if not vegan)
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. 2 tbsp ground chia + 6 tbsp of water (or 2 eggs if not vegan)
  5. dash of maple syrup, optional
For the apple pie filling
  1. Add the sliced apples, cinnamon, coconut flour and sweetener, if using, into a bowl and set aside.
For the crust
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the ground chia + 6 tbsp of water into a bowl and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add the salt to the flour and mix well.
  4. With your hand, crumble the shortening and add to the flour mixture.
  5. Add the chia mixture (and maple syrup if using).
  6. Work the dough with your hands until it forms a balls.
  7. Split the dough into 2 balls (we will need one part for the base of the pie and one part for the top).
For the bottom of the crust
  1. Place the dough ball into your pie pan and use your hands to pat it on the bottom and the sides of your pie pan.
  2. Pre-bake the crust for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. While it's baking, prepare the top of the crust.
  4. Take 2 large sheets of parchment paper. Lay one sheet down and sprinkle with flour.
  5. Place the dough ball onto the parchment sheet and sprinkle with flour.
  6. Place the other piece of parchment paper on top.
  7. Carefully roll out the dough with a rolling pin until you reach the desired size and shape.
  8. Once the bottom of the crust is pre-baked remove from oven and add in the apple pie filling.
  9. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and carefully flip over the crust onto the pie.
  10. Gently remove the top sheet of parchment paper and gently pat down the edges of the crust so that they stick to the edge of your pie pan.
  11. Poke a few holes into the crust with a fork and bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Notes
  1. *Use green apples if you want to reduce the fruit sugar content
