Deconstructed Apple Pie

Course Dessert


  • 4 large apples peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup gluten-free baking flour or regular all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter or regular butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch pie dish or baking dish generously. Set it aside.
  • Peel the apples and slice them into pieces about 1/2 inch thick. It’s okay if they’re chunky!
  • Place the sliced apples in the prepared dish. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon over the apples.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, remaining coconut sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix well, then add the egg and chopped pecans. Stir until everything is well combined.
  • Spoon the batter evenly over the apples, using your hands to make it level.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust turns golden brown.
  • Once done, take it out of the oven, let it cool for a bit, then dig in and enjoy your tasty deconstructed apple pie!
