  • Crust
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons cold,unsalted butter, cut into small pieces (I used Earths Balance)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted or canola oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons cold water
  • Filling:
  • 5 cups apples, peeled,cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  1. To prepare the crust; whisk the All-purpose flour, pastry flour, salt and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Cut in the butter using a fork until the mixture is pebbly. Stir in the oil and water until evenly coated. Transfer dough into a 9" pie pan, pressing down firmly into the bottom and up the sides of pan. Using a fork, prick holes into the dough in several places. Refrigerate crust for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake crust for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool, about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile prepare the filling: Combine apples, sugar, flour, lemon juice and syrup in a large bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes. Pour filling into the cooled crust and return to oven to bake for 30 more minutes.
  4. While the pie is baking prepare the topping: Combine the oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Cut in the butter and using your fingers till mixture becomes moistened.
  5. Once the pie has baked, remove from oven and scatter the topping evenly over the apples. Return to oven and bake until the topping begins to bubble and turn golden brown. 15-20 minutes.
  6. Cool before serving.
