Instructions Pie Recipe Without Sugar and Butter:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a pie dish lightly with coconut oil or use a non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to ensure even distribution.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, unsweetened applesauce, honey or maple syrup, vanilla extract, and milk until well combined.
  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a dough forms. If the dough is too dry, you can add a little more milk, one tablespoon at a time.
  • Divide the dough into two equal portions. Roll out one portion on a floured surface to fit the bottom of your pie dish. Gently press it into the bottom and up the sides of the dish.
  • In another bowl, toss the mixed berries with cornstarch and lemon juice until well coated.
  • Spread the berry mixture evenly over the prepared crust.
  • Roll out the remaining dough portion on a floured surface to fit the top of the pie. Carefully place it over the berries, sealing the edges by crimping with a fork or pinching with your fingers.
  • Optional: Sprinkle cinnamon over the top of the pie for added flavor.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  • Remove from the oven and let the pie cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Enjoy your healthier version of American pie, guilt-free!
