Delicious apple pie
Recipe Tip: You can mix a tablespoon or two of flour or cornstarch with the apple slices and brown sugar. This will absorb extra liquid and make the finished product hold together better.
6 baking apples
1 cup oats (any kind)
1 1/2 cups white flour
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 – 2/3 cups vegan margarine
Peel and core apples, and cut into extremely thin slices (the thinner the better).
Mix with approx 1 cup brown sugar (more or less, depending on your taste), coating the apples, and spread mixture evenly in the bottom of a 10 x 13 cake pan.
In a bowl, add oats, flour, remaining cup of brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir together well, then gradually add margarine and crumble with fingers until a chunky but not overly crumbly texture is reached (mixture should stick together when pressed firmly).
Place oat topping over the apples, and press together lightly.
Put in preheated 325 degree F oven, and bake for about 45 minutes or until top is golden and apples are soft and fully cooked. Serve warm with vegan vanilla ice cream.
You can make more of the oat mixture if you prefer a thicker topping. And there are endless fruit combinations possible, like pears, cranberries, strawberries, raspberries, peaches…
