If you are confused by the title, “naked” refers to the fact that this dessert doesn’t have a crust. It is basically apple pie filling. While it has the comforting flavors of apple pie, it is a healthier snack option. Leaving out the crust makes this recipe vegan and gluten-free. I also made it refined sugar-free. Delicious and easy on the hips, that sounds like a win-win to me!
This recipe is a creation from my mom and I. It happened to us on a few occasions, while we were preparing the apple pie filling, to just eat the filling out of the bowl without bothering to make the crust. The toasted almonds add a bit of crunch and the sweetness from the agave syrup gives a nice contrast to the tart apples. If you feel that the apples are sweet enough, you can leave out the agave.
Naked Apple Pie is a great snack or dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth guilt-free. You can store it in portion-size glass containers in the fridge and enjoy it on the go.
- 3 apples (organic), peeled and cored
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 tsp coconut oil (organic)
- 80g ground almonds (organic)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp agave syrup or honey (organic), this is optional
- Slice the apples into thin slices and put them in a large bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice on top, add the cinnamon and agave syrup or honey (if using) and mix it all together.
- In a pan, melt the coconut oil and add the ground almonds. Lightly toast them for a few minutes over medium heat, until they turn golden brown. Be careful not to burn them! Add the almonds to the apples and stir to combine.
