This Swedish Apple Pie is completely vegan and gluten free. The pie has warming pies that will just beg for a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
Can I start this post by saying I’m super distracted? It’s for a very good reason. The spaghetti squash with spinach, bacon and cheese recipe I posted last week was picked up by Austin 360! An article was featured online and in the print newspaper! I’m practically famous. Just kidding, I’m totally not. But still! Super exciting. I picked up a newspaper last night at a gas station with Bud. I tore through the newspaper until I reached the Austin 360 section and there it was…my blog! Who would have though this little blog would garner any attention. Certainly not this girl. I’m so honored, excited and proud!
But on to the recipe. We can’t forget this Swedish apple pie. I originally saw the recipe on Texanerin Baking and adapted a few ingredients. I really liked that the pie was gluten free and vegan. Sometimes it’s hard to find dessert recipes that are both gluten free and vegan that don’t lack in flavor. This apple pie is not one of those recipes!
I’m not totally sure why pie is Swedish, but I don’t think it totally matters. What does matter is the flavor in this pie. It’s spicy and sweet. It’s a great Fall pie and pairs perfectly with ice cream. Best of all?! It’s super easy and fun to make.
Swedish Apple Pie
For the apple filling:
- 4 apples peeled, cored and chopped into ¼ chunks
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons cloves
- 1 tablespoon sugar
For the topping
- 9 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ cup cups rolled oats
- ¾ cup + 1 ½ tablespoons oat flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep a 9-inch pie pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine apple chunks, cinnamon, cloves and sugar. Spread the apple mixture evenly on the bottom of the pie pan.
In a separate bowl, combine coconut oil, sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Once combined, add oats, oat flour, baking powder and salt and stir. Add the mixture over the top of the apples.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly and just browned.
