Ingredients

Apple Pie Filling
  • 2 Medium granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • ¼ cup Coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon
Cupcake
  • 2 cups Gluten-free oat flour
  • ½ cup Almond pulp, dried*
  • ¼ cup Coconut sugar
  • ¾ tsp Baking soda
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ cup Almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup Maple syrup

Directions

  1. To make the apple pie filling, in a large mixing bowl, add the apples, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and cinnamon. Mix to combine.
  2. Heat a saucepan on medium heat, and cook the apple filling until it gets sticky. This takes about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. To make the cupcake, in a mixing bowl, add the oat flour, almond pulp, coconut sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, and mix.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, add almond milk, lemon juice, coconut oil, and maple syrup, and mix. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix.
  5. Line a 6-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners, and pour batter evenly into the cupcake liners. Transfer apple pie filling to a piping bag, and pipe the filling into the center of each cupcake.
  6. Bake on 350F for 20 minutes, or until golden.

Note:
*To turn almond pulp into an almond-flour-like consistency, let the filter basket with the pulp set in the collector cup and drain the remaining liquid or you can use a spoon or spatula and press the pulp up against the sides of the filter basket to drain the remaining liquid. Then, with a spatula spread it thinly onto a baking sheet. Bake it at 175F for 3-4 hours. Once it’s as dry as possible, cool completely and pulse it in the food processor to create a fine almond powder.
