Yield6 Servings

Naturally sweetened with wholesome dates and fruit juice, this double-crust pie is sure to be a guilt-free hit. Granny Smith and gala apples are often favorites for pies, but many types of apples will work. See our tip for making a beautiful vegan glaze for the top.

Apple Pie Recipe

 Whole wheat pastry for a double-crust pie (homemade or purchased
 7 cups peeled, cored and sliced organic apples
 1 cup chopped pitted dates
 2 tablespoons flour
 ½ teaspoon ground coriander
 2 tablespoons undiluted frozen orange or pineapple juice concentrate, thawed

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.


Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss sliced apples and dates with flour and coriander. Drizzle juice concentrate over top and toss again.


Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. Cover with top crust and seal by fluting edges of pastry together. Cut slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape. Brush with a glaze just before baking, if you wish


Bake at 450 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F. and continue baking for 25 to 35 minutes until golden and juices are bubbling.

Tip for a vegan glaze

A rich dairy cream is often used for a pastry glaze. For a vegan version, mix 2 tablespoons alternative milk with 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup in a small bowl. Brush the top crust and edges with the glaze and pop the pie into your preheated oven.
