Ingredients

For the pie crust (for nut-free pie crust see note at bottom of recipe):

  • 2 cups almond meal/flour
  • 7 tablespoons coconut oil , melted, (or butter, melted, or Earth Balance® vegan butter, melted)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup , preferably Grade B
  • 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the caramel sauce:

  • ¾ cup light brown sugar , packed
  • ½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup , preferably Grade B
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the filling:

  • 4 apples , such as Fuji (or Granny Smith for a more tart pie), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 2 lemons , juiced
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

For the pie crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. With your fingertips, press the dough into a 9-inch glass pie plate or tart pan. The dough should be a bit sticky.
  • Try and bring the crust up the sides gently.
  • Bake the crust for 15 minutes. Allow it to cool before adding the filling.

For the caramel sauce:

  • While the crust is baking, stir together the brown sugar, coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  • Whisk continuously and bring to a low boil over medium heat. Watch carefully – do not allow it to burn!
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 3 minutes.Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  • For the filling:
  • While the caramel is cooling, toss the apple slices with the juice from the lemons.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Drain the apples on a paper towel, then add them to the sugar mixture.
  • Add the vanilla and toss it all together.

Assembly:

  • Once the crust and caramel have cooled, drizzle 3–4 tablespoons of the cooled caramel sauce over the base of the crust.
  • Then layer your apple filling evenly over the drizzle of caramel sauce.
  • Lightly drizzle another 3–4 tablespoons of the sauce over the top of the apples.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, lightly place a piece of foil over the top of the pie, making sure the edges of the crust are under the foil as well.
  • Bake for 15 minutes more.
  • Drizzle any remaining caramel sauce over the top of the pie once it comes out of oven. Serve and enjoy!
  • Nut-free Note: To make a nut-free crust, combine 2 cups crushed nut-free, gluten-free cookie crumbs of choice, 6 tablespoons coconut oil or melted butter, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Mix and proceed as you would for the crust preparation outlined in the directions.
