These are absolutely delicious – quick and easy to make and so much better than a slice of apple pie – but taste just as good – if not better!
Depending on how large your apples are you may need more or less of the crust – you may just have to adjust. Don’t worry about having to buy oat flour – you can make your own – just pop some porridge oats in to a blender and blend until fine.
Here’s a video showing you exactly how to make them 🙂
You will need:
1 cup Oat flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup Desiccated coconut
4 tbsp Coconut syrup (I use Bali Nutra)
1 – 2 Apples (depending on size. I used Bramley’s)
Warm water – up to 4 tbsp
Pre-heat the oven to 175 C.
Peel, core and dice your apples – you want chunks about an inch square. If you don’t want them to go brown you can pop them in cold water with some lemon/lime juice in. I don’t really mind if they go a little brown so I don’t bother.
Pop the oats and coconut in a bowl, mix the spices in and stir together. Add the coconut syrup and mix to form a dough. You need a workable but sticky dough so you may find you need to add a little water. I prefer not to add more coconut syrup as it gets too sweet but it’s up to you.
Take a spoonful of the crust mixture and flatten in your hand. Pop a piece of apple in the middle and cover it in the crust dough.
Pop on a lined baking tray. Once all the apples are covered pop in the oven for 10 – 15 mins – turning once. You want them to crisp up and go golden brown.
Eat warm or allow to cool and store in an airtight container for later.
