Healthy Vegan Apple Pie (Gluten Free)

Apple Pie that is vegan and gluten free!  Last night I had the urge to make crock pot applesauce.  Just thinking about it reminds me of the applesauce my great grandmother used to make when I was little.

After I gathered all the ingredients, made the apple sauce, and tasted the final product, I immediately thought to make a homemade apple pie.  Here in Dallas today, its cold and overcast.  Just perfect for staying in and enjoying some comfort food.


Vegan Apple Pie


I re-vamped this recipe to make it gluten free as well as paleo friendly.  It’s super easy!  I made the apples in the crock pot, but you can probably to it in the instant pot as well.

      1. Hello! This looks fantastic! 2 questions you slice the apples for the slow cooker? What would you substitute for banana? My youngest is allergic so I can't use it! Thanks so much!! I can't wait to try and make this!!
        1. Yes, I slice the apples for the slow cooker. You can fill the pie with the apples in soft chunks or let them break down completely like applesauce. Maybe you can sub a bit of applesauce for banana?
              1. I made this last night and it turned out fantastic!! I did as you suggested. I took some of the applesauce out of the crockpot and used the baby bullet to puree it. I used that to bind my crust instead of banana! Thank you so much!!
      2. Just made this. It looks and smells delicious :) Apple pie is my hubby's favorite & we are just waiting for it to cool so we can dig in!!
      3. Question - for the topping - in the ingredients you list coconut oil but in the directions you say mix the oats with the butter - which is it? Butter or coconut oil? This sounds delicious and I want to try it!
        1. I used to use butter, but now I use coconut oil. I guess I forgot to reflect that in the method. Editing now. You can use either one. :)
      4. Have you tried Chebe flour GLUTEN FREE. Their all purpose bread mix makes everything. They use manioc flour and starch. I made gluten free choc chip cookies that you would never know are gluten free. Used dates for sugar. Well, it is not organic but maybe you can get inspired from it. Best rolls best everything taste like it has gluten in it. I know you are trying a gluten free diet so I was passing this along. Go to the online store and you can buy in bulk.
      5. I love the idea of this recipe as we totally rely on breakfast bars to get out of the house in the morning. Unfortunately I forgot the applesauce and they were very dry but great on yogurt! We are going to try again tonight.
      6. After adding the apples to the crust, it says cook for 25 minutes. After the toting are listed, it says cook for 25-30 minutes. Is it 25-30 minutes total, or is it 50-55 minutes total? Thanks.
      7. So, When You MAke The Grain Free Crust, You Put In The Apples And Bake For 25 Min, Then Do The Topping And Bake For Another 25, Right? The Crust Was Perfect Around The Edges, But The Bottom Was Soggy. I ThinK My Apple Mixture WaS Too Wet.
      8. For the grain free are you suppose to bake at any step? Or bake with filling then apply topping and no more baking?
