Apple Pie

Prep time: 10 min Cook time: 50 min

This Apple Pie recipe combines the sweet, tender flavors of baked apples with the warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Featuring leftover pecan pulp for a delicious twist!

Servings: 4-6



  • 2 ½ cup gluten-free flour (Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour was used for this recipe. Other brands can be used, but results may vary.)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup cold vegan butter (cubed)
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar


  • 4 apples (cored, peeled and sliced)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup pecan pulp (from pecan milk)
  • 2 tbsp applesauce (optional)
  • lemon juice (1 lemon)
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar


Step 1

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar and salt. Add cubed cold butter and incorporate it into the flour using a pastry cutter. It will resemble coarse sand.

Step 2

Add in the water and vinegar and combine with a spatula. Knead the dough with your hands until it holds together. Wrap dough or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for an hour.

Step 3

In the meantime prepare the apple filling. In a medium sized bowl combine all ingredients and let sit.

Step 4

When you are ready to use the dough, roll ⅔ of the dough out (⅛ inch thick) into a 10-12 inch circle onto a floured surface.

Step 5

Place dough into a 9 inch pie plate. Press it lightly into the dish and up on the sides. Trim the edges of the crust and crimp the dough using your fingers.

Step 6

Fill the pie with the apple filling and preheat oven to 375 F.

Step 7

To prepare the lattice top crust, roll out the rest of the dough until ⅛ inch thick. Slice into 1 inch strips using a knife. Place the strips on top one at a time and weave them in and out of each other.

Step 8

Crimp the edges and brush with some extra vegan butter and sprinkle off with some extra granulated or coconut sugar and place in the oven for about 45-50 minutes.

Step 9

Allow your pie to cool for at least 45 minutes before slicing.

Step 10

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
