Golden Date and Apple Pie

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
 8 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° 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° F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° 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.
