Alright folks, get ready to drool because today we’re making the most classic dessert of all time – apple pie! And who said healthy and delicious couldn’t go hand in hand? We’re taking a healthy spin on this classic recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping your health in check.

First up, let’s talk about the star of the show – the apples. We’re using fresh, organic apples for this recipe. Make sure to wash them thoroughly and peel them if you prefer no skin in your pie. Slice the apples thinly and set them aside.

Now let’s dive into the recipe! We’ve got not one, but TWO recipes for you today – one classic and one easy, no-pie-dish version. So whether you’re a seasoned baker or a newbie, we’ve got you covered.

For the classic recipe, here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, chilled
  • 6 tbsp ice water
  • 5 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Next up, here’s the easy no-pie-dish version:

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and diced
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 6 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Now that you’ve got your ingredients sorted, it’s time to get baking. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and let’s get started on the crust.

Classic Crust:

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in coconut oil using a pastry cutter or your hands until it resembles coarse sand. Add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, roll out the dough on a floured surface and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Trim excess dough and crimp the edges. Set aside.

No-Pie-Dish Crust:

In a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or your hands until it resembles coarse sand. Add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, roll out the dough on a floured surface and place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Set aside.

Now it’s time to assemble the pie. In a large bowl, mix together sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice.

Classic Pie:

Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

No-Pie-Dish Pie:

Pour the apple mixture onto the center of the rolled-out dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold the edges and brush them with an egg wash. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
