This week I made an organic apple pie with organic apples and whole wheat crust made from the Bronze Chief brand of flour. Since I am a vegan I made an apple pie loosely following a recipe my mom used frequently. For the dough I mixed together:
- 2 1/2 cups Bronze Chief flour
- 1/2 coconut milk
- 1/2 cup of Canola oil
I sometimes use other kinds of oil and non-dairy milk, but what I happened to have in the pantry this time around were the above ingredients, so I these went into the pie. For future pies, plan to continue using the Bronze Chief flour because this red wheat flour is less processed than white flour that is traditionally used in baking. Also, this whole wheat flour adds more of a rustic taste to a homemade apple pie with this theme.
For the apple pie filling, I used:
- 7 cups chopped organic apples
- 1/4 cup sugar in the Raw
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
I cut up the homegrown organic apples and mixed these with the sugar and cinnamon. Since this is a vegan apple pie, I decided to experiment by using arrowroot powder as a thickening agent mixed into the filling.
The video illustrates how I created the pie for people who prefer watching videos over reading blog posts.
