Apple pie and winter, it’s like an absolute match made in heaven. I have all the time to eat a pie however not all the time to actually make one. Pastry making just isn’t something that excites me and buying a pie usually means heaps more sugar than I would care for and also going out to fetch the damn thing. What to do? Cheat’s version!
Enter my healthy wholefood (practically) apple pie with a creamy “toffee nut” sauce
A granny smith, chopped
3 small dates ( just used dried pitted)
1 tsp tahini (can substitute for peanut butter)
Sprinkle of muesli (toasted is preferred)
Place the chopped apple with a little water (just enough to steam it) in a microwavable container and place on high for 2 minutes. Alternatively, stew on stove top till soft but still holding together
Next, in a blender add the dates, tahini and a little hot water- just enough to cover the dates and tahini. Whizz till pale, creamy brown colour and add a little more hot water if necessary. Place to one side
Drain the apples from any liquid produced from cooking.
Now it’s time to arrange on your plate; layer the apple, muesli then pour sauce liberally over!
What you have is a naturally sweet, refined sugar free apple pie dessert with a quirky toffee nut sauce.
This would make a warming breakfast also
