Traditional apple pie recipes use a lot of butter– both in the crust and the filling. For this pie, I used Wholly brand vegan, gluten-free, and allergy-friendly pie crust. Marie Callender and Mrs. Smith’s also make a vegan pie crust. If you want to make your own, try this recipe from Lovin’ It Vegan.

I used a combination of Granny Smith and Honey Crisp apples, which I believe are the most popular apples for pie.

If you like your pie topped with ice cream, try Eat No Bull oat-based ice cream (they even have an apple pie flavor that is so yummy.)

Ingredients
  • 2 vegan pie crusts
  • 7 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 3 tbsp flour of choice (I used coconut)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • Plant-based milk and additional sugar for brushing on top.
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Step 2 Combine the apple slices, flour, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and vanilla in a large stockpot. Mix until apples are well-coated.
  • Step 3 Put stockpot over medium-low heat and let sit, stirring often, 10-15 minutes until apples begin to soften and sugar is dissolving.
  • Step 4 Lightly grease a pie pan, and gently place one pie crust into the pan.
  • Step 5 Spread the apples into the pie crust, arranging them so that there aren’t large pockets of air between slices.
  • Step 6 Spread the applesauce over the top of the apples.
  • Step 7 Gently place the second crust over the apples. Press the edges together and trim any excess crust away.
  • Step 8 Use a sharp knife to cut a few slits in the top crust.
  • Step 9 Brush the crust with plant-based milk, then sprinkle with sugar.
  • Step 10 Bake for 50 minutes. After 30 minutes, check for signs the crust is browning too quickly. If so, cover with foil.
  • Step 11 Let sit for 20-30 minutes before serving.
