Every mothersday I kind of face the same dilemma. I want to make something special for my mom. Due to my students budget it usually comes down, that I bake something special. After hours scrolling through Pinterest without finding any suitable recipes, I thought about giving up. I might just write a really nice card with a voucher? On Saturday, I took my bike and drove to my grandma in order to get some fresh apples. When my grandma handled me this apples, it immediately reminded me about these days when she made this amazing apple pie. Her original recipe includes a lot of butter, white flour and also sugar. So, why not making a healthy version of a traditional apple pie? And instead of making one big pie, I wanted to make little pies, so everyone on the brunch can have a little warm apple pie. On sunday then the smell of warm apples and cinnamon was filling the whole house and everyone was crazy and wanted to know what it is. I don’t want to but myself into the spotlight, but these little cuties were the stars of the happening. My grandma could not believe that they are actually made without eggs, sugar, cream or white flour.
Mothersday perfect <3
1 cup vegan margarine
1 cups whole wheat flour
1 Cup Coconut flour
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 cup vegan margarine
1/2 cup water
Add all the ingredients in a bowl and start to wrap it. (Do not melt the margarine!) It might be hard at the beginning so this one really needs some muscle effort 😀
Form a ball and then let cool down in the freezer for about an hour.
For the Filling:
3 apples, peeled and cutter into small pieces
10 medjool dates, pitted in the food processor
1/2 Cup crashed hazelnuts (you can also buy a paket with fine hazelnuts that are already crushed)
1/2 Cup Almond Milk + water if mixture too dry
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 tbsp Agavesyrup
Mix everything together in a bowl. When finished place pieces of the rolled out pie dough in a prepared muffin pan. Fill in the apple filling. To finish take your pizzacutter and do a lattice top. Crop as many small stripes as you like and then decorate your mini pies and sprinkle them with more cinnamon.
Bake the mini pies at 410°F for 8 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350°F and continue to bake the pie 20-25 minutes more, until the top is golden and the apples are soft.
Best served warm <3
