12 apple pie slices

If I had to name one thing that I had to eat the rest of my life, it would definitely be apple pie! The smell alone will make me drool! It has been a long time since I have made an apple pie myself. So it was time again to get started and make a sugarfree healthier apple pie.

You can wake me up anytime of the time for a slice of apple pie. If it would be possible I would bottle the smell when the apple pie comes fresh out of the oven and use it as perfume. It’s just so cozy and gives me a feeling of home. I worked in a restaurant where they would make home-made fresh apple pie every Friday morning. The smell when you entered the restaurant that morning was just incredible. As you can guess, I always wanted to work on Fridays!

So let’s get started with this sugarfree healthier apple pie. Yes, healthier apple pie. I am not a fan of labelling recipes as “healthy” or “unhealthy”. As long as you have a balanced lifestyle, there will always be a place for a slice of apple pie in your diet. To give this recipe more health benefits, I used whole wheat flour and low carb almond flour instead of just using regular white flour. This way, your blood sugar levels will stay more stable instead of spiking like crazy when eating this sugar free apple pie.

How is this apple pie then sugar free? I used the sugar substitutes from Steviala. These sweeteners are made from stevia sweetener and erythritol. These are both sweeteners from nature and don’t spike your blood sugar levels. Of course, this apple pie is not completely 100% sugar free because apples still contain natural sugars. But you need those! So this apple pie is free of refined sugars.

Did you know that you can easily make a vegan version by using plant-based butter? All the other ingredients are vegan. Yes, I did not use eggs or milk in this recipe. So this recipe for sugarfree healthier apple pie can also be made vegan!

Serve the sugar free apple pie with some whipped cream and sugar free salted caramel sauce from Steviala and enjoy!

Forming the apple pie crust – step 3

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Dust some extra whole wheat flour on your kitchen counter and roll the dough into a flat piece with a rolling pin. Line the springform pan with baking powder. You can also spray some baking spray on the sides so the crust won’t stick to the springform pan. Then lay the apple pie crust in the springform pan. Also cover the sides. Make sure you leave ¼ of the dough for decorating the top of the apple pie.
Then you add the grounded bread crumbs to apple pie crust. By doing this, the apple pie won’t get soggy after it is cooled down. Next add the apple filling and press it down a bit. Roll out the left over dough and make a topping of your choice. I went for a simple but beautiful striped pattern. Also make sure that your cover the sides of the apple pie.
