Sweet Apple Pie (No Refined Sugar)
Apple pie is one of those treasured dishes that brings on memories of childhood laughter, togetherness and the comforts of your mother’s kitchen.
This classic apple pie recipe makes the best apple pie from scratch. It substitutes refined sugar with honey and has a flaky buttery pie crust. The secret is the thinly sliced apples combined with the flavor of honey and vanilla. It’s sure to be a pie that everyone will love!
Can I prep this ahead?
You certainly can! If making this in advance, follow the prep instructions (stop just before baking). Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from fridge and bake. If you bake your pie straight from the refrigerator (or your pie is chilled), your bake time may increase slightly.
Making your own crust can be pretty intimidating, which is why we kept this recipe extremely simple. The trick is spending some time kneading it! If you don’t have time to make your own crust, no problem. You can grab one at the store with FfL-friendly ingredients. Don’t worry, we won’t tell.
Don't have oat flour? Quickly make your own!
We use oat flour in many of our baked goods recipes. Oat flour is a nutrient-packed whole-grain flour that is naturally gluten-free. It works wonderfully in a variety of recipes to boost nutrition and flavor.
Making it is very simple! Add old-fashioned oats to a blender or food processor and blend them until they reach a fine, flour-like consistency. For a step-by-step guide including the recipe and tips, check out How to Make Oat Flour.
- To save time, you can use a store-bought pie crust instead of homemade. Don’t worry, we won’t tell!
- You can adjust the amount of sugar in the pie filling depending on the sweetness of your apples and how sweet you like your pie.
- Want to give your pie a pretty flare? Sprinkle a pinch of coconut palm sugar (or whatever sugar you have on hand) on the crust after brushing it with egg wash.
- If you use overly tart apples, you may have to add a little more honey. We’ve had a lot of luck with Braeburn and Granny Smith apples.
- You can use any fruit you’d like, depending on the season. We’ve made this recipe using peaches and pears. If you try something different, be sure to share how it turned out in the comments below!
- Some people prefer to peel their apples when making apple crisp. Because this recipe uses thinly sliced apples, and for the sake of time, we don’t typically peel our apples.
- If you notice your crisp is starting to get overly brown (some ovens heat differently than others), loosely cover it with foil until it finishes baking.
