Purely Apple Crumb Pie

We adore Purely Elizabeth and feel quite lucky to call them friends. As the holidays grew near we couldn’t help but combine two of our favorite fall products to create one fabulous dessert and we’re so happy to share the recipe with you today! This is a beautiful twist on our classic Apple Crumb Pie. Featuring Purely Elizabeth’s delicious Grain-Free Apple Walnut Granola baked into the crust + crumble, which gives it a divine nutty texture and extra infusion of flavor. It’s a truly special pie to share with loved ones and we can’t way for you to try it!

*Makes one 8 or 9 inch pie

To Make the Crust:

1.5 cup almond flour

1/4 cup arrowroot powder

 2 tablespoons Purely Elizabeth Grain Free Apple Walnut Granola (light ground in a blender)

1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

1/4 cup 100% maple syrup

Pinch of pink salt

Combine coconut oil, almond flour, arrowroot powder, granola and salt in a bowl. Mix with pastry blender or finger tips until dough comes together. Stir in maple syrup, then shape dough into a ball. Place in fridge for about 1 hour. After an hour, remove from fridge and gently roll out dough into larger circle between two pieces of parchment paper. Place the pie dough into an 8 or 9 inch pie pan. Set aside until ready to fill with apples.

To Make the Filling:

7-8 apples, peeled, cored and quartlered

2 tablespoons coconut or avocado oil

2 tablespoons 100% maple syrup

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

Pinch of pink salt

Gently sauté apples in coconut or avocado oil. After about 5 minutes, add maple syrup and continue to stir for 5 more minutes. Once soft, stir in cinnamon, arrowroot and pinch of salt. Stir until a nice evenly gooey texture is formed, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow too cool.

To Make the Crumb Topping:

1.5 cups almond flour

2 tablespoons Purely Elizabeth Grain Free Apple Walnut Granola (light ground in a blender)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter (softened)

2 tablespoons 100% maple syrup

In a bowl, mix together almond flour, granola, cinnamon and pinch of salt. Add coconut oil or butter and maple syrup. Using fingers, press ingredients together into a crumb topping mixture. Reserve for half way through baking.

To Assemble the Pie:

Preheat oven to 350. Place the apples inside the pie crust. Bake covered in oven for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes. Gently press crumb topping on top of apples and place back in oven. Bake uncovered another 20 minutes, until apples are bubbling and crumb topping is an even golden brown. Allow to cool and enjoy!
